1. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport
Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace reached the top speed of exactly 490.484 km/h (304.773 mph). On August 2, 2019, on the test track at Ehra-Lessien in Lower Saxony. “An incredible speed. It’s inconceivable that a car would be capable of this. But the Chiron was prepared and felt very safe – even in these high-speed ranges,” says Andy Wallace. He worked his way up to the top speed from 300 km/h in 50 km/h. Increments to make sure all the conditions were right and the Chiron was optimally balanced in terms of lift downforce. “Even in the first attempt, I felt this would work. The Chiron ran perfectly and the track and weather conditions were ideal. The whole team did a fantastic job,” says Wallace, overjoyed at the accomplishment.
After one lap to condition the Chiron. Andy Wallace accelerated out of the north curve to 200 km/h to reach top speed on the 8.8 kilometres straight. At a precisely defined braking point, he decelerated the Chiron back to 200 km/h to drive through the south bend.
I went at full throttle from the start for approximately 70 seconds. It was important for me to be out of the bend at 200 km/h to reach top speed on the straight. That required the very highest level of concentration,” says the new record-holder. He covered 136 metres in one second.
It’s not the first time that Andy Wallace has set a speed record: in 1998, the Brit reached a speed of 391 km/h (243 mph) in a McLaren F1 on the same track, likewise setting a record.
2. Hennessey Venom F5
In terms of spec sheets, Hennessey’s Venom F5 is more impressive. Its claimed top speed of 301 mph obliterates everything else on this list by a significant margin.
But Hennessey hasn’t verified its numbers with the Guinness Book of World Records. Koenigsegg has, so even though it gets the silver medal here, in the real world, the Agera RS is the true speed king. To set the official record, Koenigsegg asked the Nevada Department of Transportation to close an 11-mile stretch of Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump. On public roads, the 1,160-hp Swedish supercar hit 284.55 mph during its first run and 271.19 mph during the second, which averages out to 277.9 mph. Watch the run here.
3. BUGATTI VEYRON SUPER SPORT
Bugatti brand, it had one goal: build the fastest production car in the world. The original Veyron achieved that goal, and with a price tag of $1.7 million and a quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 1,000 hp.
This beat pumps out an astonishing 1200 HP, and numerous aerodynamic changes meant to help gain a few extra miles per hour.
With a top speed of 268 mph recorded at Volkswagen’s test track, the Veyron Super Sport was once recognized as the world’s second-fastest production car by the Guinness Book of World Records.
4. TESLA ROADSTER
The original Tesla Roadster was a sports car based on
the Lotus Elise, and although its performance was certainly impressive, it’s more known for establishing Tesla as a legitimate player in the automotive world. The new Roadster is another thing altogether. This second-generation Roadster features the most impressive spec sheet of any EV before it — 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and a claimed top speed of 250 mph. In addition to the ridiculous acceleration and speed, Musk claims the Roadster will boast a range of 620 miles.
5. MCLAREN F1
The Mclaren F1 is more than just a former worlds fastest car. With its carbon-fibre body, gold-lined engine bay, 6.1-liter BMW M V12, and centre driver’s seat, it just might be the coolest car ever made.
Years before it attempted to take on Ferrari and Porsche with the MP4-12C, McLaren known only as a successful race team in Formula 1 and the defunct Can-Am series. Yet its first road car wasn’t exactly an amateur effort. The F1 went on to a fairly successful racing career in its own right, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.
