The Fastest Cars You Can Take on the Road
For fun, let's take a look at the fastest cars that can sport a license plate.
Hennessey Venom GT (270 mph)
There is some debate about this one, because it registered 270 mph in only one direction. Legitimate records are averages of the speed registered in two runs. The Venom GT did hit the mark, though, with a 1,244-hp 7-liter twin-turbocharged V8.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (268 mph)
Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest car in the world, the Super Sport boasts 1,200-hp from a quad-turbocharged W16 engine. It hit 268 mph at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessein test track.
SSC Ultimate Aero (256 mph)
An unknown briefly dethroned the Bugati Veyron when Shelby SuperCars' (unrelated to the Shelby Cobra) Ultimate Aero hit 256 mph in 2007. Bugatti came back with the Super Sport to reclaim the crown. The Aero checks in with a 6.3-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 churning 1,287-hp.
Koenigsegg CCR (242 mph)
In 2005, the Swedish-built Koenigsegg CCR hit 242 mph with a 4.7-liter V8. It has since been replaced by the Agera One:1, which Koenigsegg claims can top 270, though it has yet to be tried.
McLaren F1 (241 mph)
The engine bay is lined with gold and the drivers seat is in the center of the car, making the F1 probably the coolest car ever. This first generation road car produced by the experienced Formula 1 racing team holds a 6.1-liter BMW M V-12 engine. It was once the fastest car in the world and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.
