Let’s dive deep into the topic and get the list of fasters cars in the world.
1) Hennessey Venom F5
The car is manufactured by Hennessy Special Vehicles. According to the claims of the manufacturer, the car has a speed of 301mph and an acceleration rate of 2.0 seconds. The car is touted as a supercar and was first unveiled in the SEMA Show that was held in Las Vegas in November 2017. The Texas-based company will be producing all the parts for the automobile. The car boasts of a V8 engine that features a 7.4-liter twin-turbo and is powered at 1600 Watts. The car is said to replace Koenigsegg Agera RS in the Guinness Book of World Records, as the fastest car ever produced.
2) The Koenigsegg Agera RS
The Koenigsegg Agera RS is manufactured by the company Koenigsegg Automotive AB. The car has been honored with the title Hypercar by Top Gear magazine in the year 2010. The car is not only one of the fastest cars in the world but also one of the most stylish, featuring a well-lit interior and aluminum wheels. This is still currently the fastest car in the world in the Guinness Book of World Records simply because Hennessey Venom F5 still has not registered its claims with the Guinness Book of World Records. The car holds a record of 284.3 mph, but only managed to reach 278mph in the test run in Las Vegas. The car has been fitted with a 5.0-liter turbo V8.
3) Bugatti Chiron
The powerhouse from the house of Bugatti holds a record of 271mph. The power of the Bugatti Chiron lies in the fact that 200 models were sold out even before the car was released into the market. Initially, Bugatti planned to release only 500 models and then depending on the reception and the sales, it would increase production. The car costs around 2.6 million and has a horsepower of 1500. The car has two modes, one is handling, and the other is sport driving mode. The sport driving mode features a torque vectoring system that makes it easier to take sharp turns.
4) Hennessey Venom GT
Another supercar from the house of Hennessy Special Vehicles, although it was not recognized as a supercar by the Guinness Book of World Records. The car has a record of 270.4 mph, which is recorded when it ran for a test in Kennedy Space Center, in the year 2014. The reason it has not been able to make a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, was because the car ran only in one direction and not in the other direction. Not only that, but the experts are not willing to consider it as a production car because the car has been entirely hand-built.
5) SCC Ultimate Aero
Shelby SuperCars (SSC)’s SCC Ultimate Aero was the fastest car in the world back in the year 2007. The car made a record of 256mph. SCC Ultimate Aero beat out the Veyron, not only that but it beat out Veyron’s non-super sport version. The manufacturer has attached the car with a 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and has 1287 HP. What makes the car different from the rest of the cars in this list is that it has no electronic driver mode to help control the car, so it enriches your driving experience.
