Owning a car has become more a necessity than a simple guilty pleasure for most of us, as we tend to leave as far away as possible from the city, in more retreated and stress-free zones with fresh air and kind neighbors.
And, while some of us prefer minivans instead of sports cars or sedans, most of us could only dream of owning fast and beautiful cars, true pieces of modern architecture and amazing technologies. Sure, it may not be feasible for you to trade your family car for a sports one, but anyone is allowed to dream once in a while.
So, if have ever wondered what the fastest cars in the world look like, here is the top 5 given to you by the most notable authorities in the field.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
The Bugatti Veyron was declared the fastest car in the world ever since its release, and has managed to stay in the top due to its unique design, elegance, and a combination of the most powerful technologies existent at this hour. Thus, Veyron can reach a whooping speed of 267 mph and reach 100 km in just 2.4 seconds. The car is built for pure speed purposes, so don’t expect it to have a comfortable car trunk.
Hennessey Venom GT
This amazing car ranks second as the fastest car in the world, and its powerful and breathtaking design is certainly completing the lavishing look. It can reach a maximum speed of 260 mph and goes from 0 to 60 miles in just 2.5 seconds.
Unfortunately, just like with any other super-speed car, the Hennessey Performance Engineering, the Texas-based company that produces the Venom GT can only deliver 10 units per year. So, even if you have the money, you still have to sign up a waiting list of at least a few years until receiving your product.
Koenigsegg Agera R
According to CBS Miami, the Agera R is specifically designed for speed only, and can reach a maximum speed of 260 mph, which is closely similar to the speed of the two fastest cars in the world. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in slightly under 3 seconds, and we can only imagine how this car flies on the highway.
The Agera holds has over 900 horsepower, while the carbon fiber body makes the car extremely lightweight and aerodynamic. However, there are some publications that claim the Agera R can actually reach a total speed of 273 mph, making it the fastest car in the world at the moment.
The GT9-R is built by the German company 9FF and reaches number 4 in the top 5 fastest cars in the world nowadays. Its design is based on the historic Porsche 911, so you’ll easily see the resemblances on the outside.
SSC Ultimate Aero
On the 5th place, SSC Ultimate Aero can reach a total speed of 256 mph and holds the title of the fastest car in the world for 3 years in a row, from 2007 to 2010.
