Top 15 Fastest Cars in the World (Above 190 MPH)

26 October 2009 49 Comments

While most of us could only dream of owning the fastest car in the world, some persons would do whatever it takes to own such a speed and power. So, how fast could fastest car in the world possibly be? Here are the 15 fastest cars available in the market measured by their top speeds.

1. Barabus TKR – 270 MPH
Barabus TKR
The Barabus “1005 bhp” supercar we’ve been updating you on has finally been unveiled and the details on this machine are astounding. It’s a true Italian-built exotic, though its twin-turbo 6.0-liter V8 that produces 1005 bhp is sourced from the U.K. According to Barabus, this motor will propel the all carbon-fiber car (body and chassis) to 60 mph in a mere 1.67 seconds, and to a top speed of 270 mph.

2. SSC Ultimate Aero – 257 MPH
SSC Ultimate Aero
The SSC Ultimate Aero is a powerful engine sports car manufactured by Shelby SuperCars. The precious SSC Ultimate Aero TT is the world’s fastest production car, which travels at a top speed of 257 mph.

3. Bugatti EB 16/4 Veyron – 253.2 MPH
Bugatti EB 16-4 Veyron
Top speed of 406 kilometers per hour and accelerate to 300 km/h in under 14 seconds. The 16/4 Veyron rides on tyres featuring the new Pax system developed by Michelin. These high-speed tyres for the 400-km range have a pressure monitoring system and run-flat characteristics, so that safe handling and a remaining distance of more than 200 kilometers are assured in the event of air loss.

4. Koenigsegg CCR – 251 MPH
Koenigsegg CCR
The Swedish Koenigsegg supercar is the second most powerful series-produced car today.

Koenigsegg CCR has a very powerful engine thanks to the Swedish Lysholm twin-screw compressor and a new exhaust system made of titanium. This takes the engine’s power output to the extreme peak value of 806 hp at 6.900 rpm. The torque curve also shows high values over a broad revolution band with a peak value of 920 Nm (678 ftlb) at 5.700 rpm.

5. Saleen S7 Twin – Turbo – 248 MPH
Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo
The Saleen S7 is a high performance race car which features the powerful Twin-Turbo V8 engine. The body of the Saleen S7 is made of aluminum and carbon fiber, as a result of this, the car is of less weight. The Saleen S7 features aluminum dampers and stabilizer bars at the front and rear. This ultimate supercar is priced at $550,000 and it can reach a top speed of 248 mph.

6. McLaren F1 – 240.14 MPH
McLarenF1
Designed as a Formula 1 for 2 (or even 3) McLaren F1 feautures a 6.0lt. BMW engine that can reach 60mph (97km/h) in 3.1 seconds. The car incorporates many world firsts for a road car: a fully carbon fibre monocoque structure, fully active fan-assisted ground effect aerodynamics, a central driving position with two offset rear passenger seats.

7. Bristol Fighter T – 225 MPH
Bristol Fighter T
A cool car with all aluminium 8 litre V10 engine. 9.3:1 compression ratio. Two ball bearing water cooled turbochargers with intercooling, uprated engine internals. High flow cylinder heads with high lift camshaft. High capacity cooling system and catalysts. Free flow exhaust with side of car exits. Output 127 bhp per litre. 1012 bhp at 5600 rpm. 1036 lb.ft of torque at 4500 rpm.

8. Ferrari Enzo – 217 MPH
Ferrari Enzo
Ferrari’s newest Mega-Car seems to have people crashing it left and right, but the drivers always walk away fine (physically.) With only 399 of these ever made, the value of the car goes up with each crash.

9. Jaguar XJ220 – 217 MPH
Jaguar XJ220
XJ 220 super car that Jaguar built back between 1992-1994. Apparently at the time it was the fastest super car out there, capable of 350 km/h (217 mph). It was trumped by the McLaren F1 in 1994.

10. Pagani Zonda C12 F – 215 MPH
Pagani Zonda C12 F
Even having a V12 engine, a new induction system is used which replaces the standard Mercedes-Benz unit. It features larger intake apertures and, when combined with a larger, hydroformed exhaust, the 7.3 liter Mercedes-Benz engine reaches 620 bhp. This is up from 550 achieved with the standard Mercedes intake. A clubsport model is available as an option which increases power to 650 bhp @ 6200 rpm.

11. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 – 213 MPH
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Here is a total refutation of logic in the name of glory. The $354,000 Lamborghini almost defines the term “exotic car.” Wide, brawny and colorful, it’s powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 that makes 632 bhp at a siren-like 8000 rpm. And it sends all that power to all four wheels.

12. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren “722 Edition” – 209 MPH
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren722 Edition
This car is seriously fast, the car puts out an incredible 478 kW (or 650 hp) from its 5.5-litre supercharged V8 assembled by hand engine manufactured at the Mercedes-AMG engine workshops in Affalterbach, Germany.

13. Porsche Carrera GT – 209 MPH
Porsche Carrera GT
Developed in 1999, Porsche Carrera GT, manufactured by Porsche of Germany, is priced at $440,000 dollars. It is well worth its price if we count the 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 DIN (605 SAE) horsepower (450 kW) and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) in 3.9 seconds, touching a maximum speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

14. Ruf RT 12 Porsche – 200 MPH
Ruf RT 12 Porsche
The new dimension of driving pleasure has a name: RUF Rt 12, based on the Porsche 911 GT3. This high performance sports car is the perfect combination of high end performance and every day use. Biturbo engines have shown that they are the platform for the next evolutionary step in RUF engine technology. Three different performance steps are available: 530 bhp, 560 bhp and 650 bhp. The 650 bhp 3.8 liter engine is of a new construction, which sets a new benchmark in performance and torque.

15. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S – 190 MPH
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish quickly rose to fame with its role as the official James Bond car in “Die Another Day,” the twentieth 007 film. It was succeeded by the Vanquish S model, which debuted in fall 2004. With a maximum speed in excess of 190 mph (305 km/h) and a 6.0 litre V12 engine developing 520 horsepower, the Vanquish S is the fastest production model ever to be built by Aston Martin.

    wheres the corvette Zr1

  • john said:

    The Barabus TKR is not the current record holder of worlds fastest car!!! All those stats are prue specualtion. Also you have a picture of a Pagani Zonda F under the McClaren!! McClaren is still the fastest naturally aspirated car ever built….you could atleast get the right picture up. Per guiness world records the top 5 fastest are… 1) SSC ultimate aero TT 2)Bugatti Veyron 3)Koenigsegg CCR 4) Saleen S7 5) McClaren F1

    Good collection of sports cars, although, being an avid Mclaren F1 fan, can you get the right picture pelase?

  • Corm said:

    You seem to be missing a lot of cars here. The vintage Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 both exceeded 200mph in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

  • Larry said:

    Yeaa please fix the mclaren picture!

    I would love to see what a stripped out veyron could hit. The bugger weighs SO much it isn’t even funny. Man it looks great on the inside though!

  • Trogdor said:

    Oh god, you clearly know dick all about cars. First of all, the Koenigsegg CCR is not even the fastest Koenigsegg and hasn’t been for quite some time, the CCXR that is capable of producing a 1018bhp should be up there, it’s top speed is rumored to be higher than that of Veyron’s though isn’t officially confirmed.

    And oh GOD how the hell do you get a picture of the Zonda instead of the McLaren (that’s how it’s spelled John, not ‘McClaren’), the most iconic and probably still the greatest supercar in the world.

    Next time you make a car-related post at least Wikipedia it or something, bloody amateurs.

    Most of you who say the SSC UltimateAero is the fastest are wrong. currently, the fastest production car in the world is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, at 267 mph. oh, and the Barabus TKR is not that fast. It’s probably not completely stock.
