If you’re reading this, you’re probably an enthusiastic driver. Indeed, the automobile is one of the modern inventions that has completely transformed the world as we know it. Of course, aeroplanes followed and made everything even more convenient, but the car is still the most efficient land transportation option available. Aside from that, you get to drive around, relax, and enjoy the comfort of a well-maintained vehicle.
People love bragging about their car specifications, and to be honest, aside from comfort, horsepower and 0-60 mph are the most important factors. While the first cars developed in the late 1800s had a top speed of only 12mph, we are now witnessing a massive revolution in which the fastest can reach 301mph. What exactly does this mean? It means that in just 120 years, we were able to create a car that is 25 times faster. That is quite impressive. Anyway, let’s move on to the fastest cars on the market!
1. 77 Aston Martin One
While it is not the fastest production car, this beautiful sports car that first appeared in 2008 remains a highly competitive one in the industry due to its maximum speed of 220mph. Aside from that, its looks are hard to beat – the carbon fibre monocoque chassis helps to distinguish it!
2. Veneno Lamborghini
Despite being one of the most expensive cars available, this Lamborgini, with a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 2.9 seconds, is something we can’t pass up. It has a top speed of 221mph, which is more than enough for any mood, and aside from that, it is a car with one of the best overall performances available.
3. F1 McLaren
Can any list of the world’s fastest cars be complete without a McLaren? It can’t, of course. Aside from its cool looks and 6.1 litre BMW M V12, it has a top speed of 241 miles per hour. That is certainly impressive.
4. CCR Koenigsegg
This Swedish-made car was even at the top of the list of fastest cars at one point, in 2005. Despite being quickly replaced by the CCX, the CCR remains one of the best-performing cars in the industry.
5. The Bugatti Chiron
Moving up a notch, we present the Chiron, a Volkswagen (yes, it bought Bugatti in 1998) masterpiece. It has 1,000 horsepower and a top speed of 261 miles per hour. That is not surprising given its W16 engine and aerodynamic design.
6. Agera RS by Koenigsegg
Another Swedish model, the Agera, is ranked second in the world’s fastest cars. Wait, according to Guinness, it is even faster than the Hennessey Venom F5, which is still not officially recognised as the fastest car on the market. It has a top speed of 278mph.
7. Venom F5 by Hennessey
Though it is not yet in the Guinness Book of Records, if we compare the specifications of all the cars ever made, this Venom F5 is by far the fastest. It can reach 301 mph thanks to a twin V8 turbo and a nearly 3000-pound carbon fibre chassis. Not to mention that it can reach 250 mph and return to zero in less than 30 seconds will be in for around and potentially new leader!
The cars mentioned above are just a few of many that have surprised the market year after year with improved performance and record-breaking speeds. For the time being, the Hennessey Venom F5 is nearly 20mph faster than the second-placed Koenigsegg Agera RS, but you can bet that in 2019 things will change.
