“Speed, give me what I need” is what Billy Idol preaches in his prominent song, which appears
to be a kind of credo and religion of fast speed lovers. Owning the fastest car in the world is
quite costly, however, there are many who are ready to pay the price.
This is a 2015 list of the fastest production models, which have not been modified. They have
undergone all necessary tests, measures and verifications of the fastest speed.
1. Hennessey Venom GT: 435 km/h (270 mph); 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 2.5 seconds, priced
at $1,000,000 and more. It was last tested on 14th February 2014 in Florida, NASA runway. It
was a relatively short track, so the top speed was limited to 270 mph.
2. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 431 km/h (268 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 2.4 seconds. It
costs $2,400,000 and up. In March 2007 Bugatti Veyron was no longer on the top. However, its
Super Sport version managed to reclaim the title in 2010, Germany(268 mph) . The original
Bugatti Veyron was a bit slower(253 mph), with 1001 horsepower. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
costs almost twice as much as the original one.
3. Koenigsegg Agera R: 418 km/h (260 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 2.9 secs.; this incredible
machine houses 1099 horsepower . Its base price is $1,600,000. Interestingly, Agera R is quite
adaptable to snow as a Ski Box or winter tires are easily attached and fitted. It is expected that
for the next 5 years this snow car will be the Bugatti's biggest rival.
4. SSC Ultimate Aero: 413 km/h (257 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 2.7 secs. Its base price is
less than a million, $654,400- to be exact. SSC Ultimate Aero was the fastest market car for three
consecutive years, from 2007 to 2010. Shelby SuperCars have never given up trying to be on top
again; their new SSC Tuantra is the most suitable claimant for the crown.
5. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo: 399 km/h (248 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 2.8 secs.;750
horsepower. It is a little cheaper than the SSC Ultimate Aero ($555,000 base price). Fast and
relatively affordable, it is a nice toy for boastful guys.
6. Koenigsegg CCX: 394 km/h (245 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.2 secs., with base price of
$545,56890. This Swedish supercar is sixth in the list.
7. Mc Laren: 386 km/h (240 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph)in 3.2 secs., a BMW engine, housing
627 hp and priced at $970,000. The 20th century winner of top speed car, the Mc Laren is likely
to be Batman’s favourite since it is furnished with bat-wing opening doors.
8. Zenvo ST1: 374 km/h (233 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 2.9 secs., base price $1,225,000,
with 1,104 horsepower. Denmark is the home country of this beast; it’s manufactured by Zenvo
Automotive, who are in the hot competition of the fastest production models.
9. Pagani Huayra: 370 km/h (230 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.0 secs., a Mercedes AMG
engine, pumping out 720 hp. Even though there 8 faster cars before the Pagani Huayra, it is
priced at $1,273,500. It is named after the god of wind, which was worshipped by the Incas. Its
seven speed auto- manual transmission makes it a quite likable fast speed possession.
10. The last raters in the list are:
Gumpert Apollo: 362 km/h (225 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.0 secs, housing 650
horsepower, at the base price of $450,000. With the name of a space shuttle, this super
car claims to be “flying” upside down. However, such a testing has never been
Noble M600: 362 km/h (225 mph), 0-100 km (0-60 mph) in 3.7 secs.; the same
horsepower as the Gumpert Apollo, about $100, 000 cheaper. Showing-off with this car
could be a little unsuccessful for the reason that its design is far from conspicuous;
actually, it’s really simple and slender. Owners of the noble car are able to keep a low
profile in it.
