Corey Corbin and Tyler Savage

There are many fast cars in the world, but here are our top 5! Let us know what you think!

1. Hennessey Venom F5: 301 MPH

The Venom F5 can go an exciting claimed top speed of 301 mph, which knocks the previous top-speed figure by more than a school zone speed limit. To get this done, Hennessey started with a brand new, 2,950-pound carbon fiber chassis and bolted a 1600-hp, 7,4-liter, twin-turbo V8 to it. Not to mention, the results are astonishing. The Venom F5 can go from 0 to 249 to 0 mph in less than 30 seconds.

2. Koenigsegg Agera RS: 278 MPH

Hennessey’s Venom F5 is the most impressive car on the chart, but when it comes to verified speed, Koenigsegg Agera RS is the ultimate winner. For the official record, Koenigsegg asked the Nevada Department of Transportation to block Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump, which stretches across a distance of 11-mile. The Agera RS hit the speed of 284.55 mph during its first run.

3. Hennessey Venom GT: 270MPH

In the year 2014, Hennessey recorded a 270.4-mph run at the Kennedy Space Center. Although the Guinness Book of World Records approved the term, it received quite a bit of criticism. To be considered legitimate, the speed records usually require a run in each direction, and an average of two runs is taken to account. All the more, the Venom GT due to its hand-built nature was questioned on being deserving among the series production cars.

4. Bugatti Chiron: 261 MPH

Bugatti has been ruling the world’s fastest car category before Hennessey and Koenigsegg jumped into the top speed fray. The list of supercars is incomplete without the legendary Bugatti. The Volkswagen Group after ten years of producing the Veyron revealed its successor – the Chiron. The first-generation model of this car was priced at $2.6 million.

5. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 268 MPH

Volkswagen purchased the Bugatti brand with only one dream, to build the fastest production car in the world. Bugatti manufactured Veyron achieved the goal and had a whopping price tag of $1.7 million. It got a quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 1,000 hp. Soon the Veyron was dethroned by the SSC Ultimate Aero, which was much better in specs and speed. With full power, Bugatti came back with the Veyron Super Sport that pumps out an astonishing 1200 HP.
