The top 5 fastest cars in the world revealed
The world is full of fast cars from exotic manufacturers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Maserati, but which models are fastest cars in the world today? You might be surprised to see one or two unexpected names nestled among those of the familiar exotic car makers, including the first car on our list.
Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo
This is a beast of a car that’s good for 248mph and a 0-60mph time of just 2.8 seconds. This blink and you’ve missed it machine develops 750bhp and comes in a £330,000.
Number 4 is another unexpected name, but the tech behind the 9ff GT9-R is familiar to most car lovers as it’s based on the Porsche 911. The 0-60mph time is a little slower than the Saleen S7’s at 2.9 seconds, but there’s 1,120bhp on tap and a 257mph top speed to enjoy.
No 4 tied
SSC Ultimate Aero
The SSC Ultimate Aero is just as powerful and equally as impressive as the 9ff GT9-R so it’s joint 4th on our list. There’s a 257mph top speed and a 0-60mph time of 2.7 seconds to enjoy all thanks to the machine’s 1,183bhp motor.
Koenigsegg Agera R
With a 260mph top speed and a 0-60mph time of 2.9 seconds, this is a very quick car. It’s also great to look at and it must be amazing to drive. Unfortunately there won’t be too many on the planet who can afford to own it as it comes in a £952,000.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport As with the Koenigsegg Agera, this is another super-hot version of an incredibly fast car. if you can afford the £1.4m price tag, you’ll be getting a 2.4 second time to 60mph coupled with a 268mph top speed. But you won’t be getting the fastest car in the world.
Hennessey Venom GT
With a 270 mph top speed and a 2.5 second time for the 0 to 60mph sprint, the Hennessey Venom GT, that's shown in our lead image, is the world’s fastest car. There’s a £600,000 price tag attached to this machine, but for that money you get 1,244bhp.
