Over the past few years we have seen numerous supercars come on the market all trying to win the title of the fastest car in the world. Even though most of these cars are awesome there can only be one fastest and who do you think it is? Check out our top 10 list to find out.
10. – 225 mph (362 km/h), 0-60 in 3.7 secs
The Noble M600 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 Engine with 650 hp. It’s base price is $330,000 and has an inconspicuous design sports a slender and contoured body which does not scream out for attention at every second of the day.

Twin-Charged 7.0 liter V8 Engine forging 1,104 hp. Base price: $1,225,000.
The first Supercar from Zenvo Automotive, a Danish sports car company in pursuit of speed and perfection. This 100% Danish made supercar is limited to 15 units and the company even promised “flying doctors” to keep your baby functioning.
8. McLaren F1 – 240 mph (386 km/h), 0-60 in 3.2 secs
BMW S70/2 60 Degree V12 Engine with 627 hp, base price is $970,000.
The fastest car in the 20th century with doors that looks like bat wings. Maybe Batman needs to order one and paint it black
7. Koenigsegg CCX – 245 mph (394 km/h), 0-60 in 3.2 secs
90 Degree V8 Engine 806 hp, base price is $545,568.
Made in Sweden, it is the older brother of the Agera R, only losing to 4 other supercars in the world.
6. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo – 248 mph (399 km/h), 0-60 in 2.8 secs
Twin Turbo All Aluminum V8 Engine with 750 hp, base price is $555,000.
Smooth and bad-ass. The Saleen S7 will make you want to show it off non-stop.
5. SSC Ultimate Aero – 257.1 mph (413 km/h), 0-60 in 2.7 secs
Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400.
Tested in March 2007 by Guinness World Records, The SSC Ultimate Aero was the fastest car in the world from March 2007 to July 2010. On March 2011, the Koenigsegg Agera R also surpassed it, forcing this American made car to the 4th spot. Shelby SuperCars will continue their quest to reclaim the fastest car title, and their new SSC Tuatura might do the job (we’ll just have to wait and see).
4. 9ff GT9-R – 257.2 mph (413 km/h), 0-60 in 2.9 secs
4.0 Litre V6 Twin-Turbo Engine with 1120 hp, base price is $695,000.

6.2-liter LS9 Turbocharged V8 Twin Turbo V8 Engine producing 1200 hp, has a price tag of $950,000.
The Venom GT has yet to be tested and proven, but could possibly hit a top speed of 275 mph. This might just be the Veyron Super Sport’s closest competitor!

5.0-liter V8 Engine with twin turbo’s, housing 1099 hp. Base price is $1,600,000.
If you’re into snow sports, the Agera R can be fitted with a Ski Box as well as winter tires, not that I would take one on a ski trip or anything like that. While the Agera R has a massive theoretical top speed, the current tested top speed is 260 mph. Expect this snow car to be the Bugatti’s arch enemy for the next 5 years.
1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 267 mph (429 km/h), 0-60 in 2.4 secs
Aluminum, Narrow Angle 8 Liter W16 Engine with 1200 hp, base price is $2,400,000.

The original Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 253 mph, priced at $1,700,000 and equipped with 1001 hp.
