The World’s Fastest Cars

There’s nothing more thrilling than a high-speed chase, or an F1 race, to get you gripping the edge of your seat and silently urging “GO, GO, GO!” In this article, we’ll have a look at some of the fastest cars so that you can look them up on Google and watch them fly across the speed track.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

Zooming in at number one on the list is the Bugatti Chron Super Sport 300+. For a long time, in the motoring world, the aim was for a car to break the 300mph speed limit. The Italian car manufacturer did this towards the end of 2019. This aerodynamic, low-riding car did this with racing driver Andy Wallace behind the wheel. In fact, he did the lap at a little over 304mph!

Hennessey Venom F5

Before Bugatti set its 304mph record, the title of fastest car belonged to Hennessey Performance Engineering whose Venom F5 clocked in at 301mph. The car has a carbon-fibre chassis and has a 7.4-litre, twin-turbocharged v8 engine.

Hennessey Venom GT

Another supercar from Hennessey Performance Engineering, production was kicked off on the Venom GT in 2011 and it remained in production until 2017. However, only 13 cars were built in this six-year period.

The car costs a twin-turbo, 7.0 litre, V8 engine. It pumps out 1.244 horsepower and 1.155 pound-feet of torque. In February 2014, it hit 270.4 mph on the Kennedy Space Center’s Landing Strip in Florida. Interestingly, although this speed was higher than the world record at the time, it didn’t make it into the Guinness Book of World Records as their production run of only 13 cars was against the organisation’s rules.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

This car is the most powerful in the Koenigsegg stable and was declared as the fastest car in November 2017. Although the Koenigsegg Agera RS doesn’t own the title of the fastest car in the world anymore, it still has a couple of great features, such as:

  • Acceleration from 0 to 200 mph
  • Braking from 200 to 0 mph, 0 to 200 mph and right back to full stop

Another one from the Swedish manufacturer is the Koenigsegg CCX. In this car, it is possible to reach a speed of 245 mph. It can also go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. The dealer network extends across North America, Europe, Asia as well as the Middle East and Australia.

9ff GT9-R

Although not as well known as the other cars on this list, this beauty can’t be forgotten. The GT9-R can get to a speed of 257 mph. In addition, it can go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, but it costs a pretty penny so you may need to win big at in order to experience it first hand!

Gumpert Apollo

This not-so-well-known car, which is reminiscent of an F1 car with doors that open upwards, can reach top speeds of 225 mph and is able to go from 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds. The full name of this German sports car manufacturer is Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur which as their headquarters in Denkendorf.
