It’s a well-known fact that if you have lots of money and you’re looking to buy a car, the only thing that really matters is speed. It has to be the fastest car that you can get your hands on, despite the fact that pretty much all speed limits are pretty obtainable by even a cheap second hand car. No one cares about speeding tickets when you’re rich anyway.
Let’s take a look at the fastest cars on the planet – the ones in production, that is. No use dreaming about a fast car if you can’t buy it.
This ancient beauty (she was built in 1987) has a top speed of 342 km/h. That probably already sounds impressive, but remember they didn’t have the braking and steering technology we have now. This car was basically an instant trip to the undertaker back in the late 80’s.
The McLaren F1 managed top speeds of up to 386,7 km/h, which means it’s probably good for racing. Someone should try that.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport
It’s got a long name, and in the world of cars that means that it’s gonna be a good one. This car has a modest top speed of 415 km/h. Oh, who am I kidding? That’s not modest at all!
SSC Ultimate Aero TT
This amazing-but-unknown vehicle has a top speed of 412,28 km/h. I honestly have no idea why you’d bother with the extra
The CCR had a proper top speed of 387,87 km/h. This is also the fastest car that doesn’t manage to break the 400 km/h wall.
This late 80’s Porsche had a top speed of 319 km/h and was the fastest car on the planet for a whole year before the previously mentioned Ruf stole its throne.
Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4
No, it’s not the same Bugatti as the one we mentioned earlier despite the fact that they sound pretty ssc ultimate aero TT similar. This one “only” has a top speed of 408,47 km/h which makes it almost 7 km/h less cool than its Super Sport variant.
Koenigsegg Agera RS
Oh boy, this car. Not only does it looks like it dropped right out of a space shuttle, it can probably outrun a space shuttle. It’s the fastest production vehicle to date and it has a measured top speed of 447,19 km/h.
