The 7 Fastest Cars In The World

The world of cars has always been about going faster and being the fastest. Come to think of it the same is through for all human endeavours that involved speed. Nowadays, we’re lucky enough to live in a time where we can go faster than at any time before – so, what are the fastest cars in the world in 2013.

Koenigsegg CCX

The Koenigsegg CCX comes fifth on our list and the Swedish built auto can manage a whopping 245mph and hit 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds, making it a fine piece of machinery. The amazing thing about the car is the sheer pace it can go at and the fact it’s been created by a small Swedish manufacturer, with relatively little experience in the car arena. Of course, the V8 engine with 806bhp helps a lot. It’ll set you back $545,000.


Saleen S7 Twin Turbo

The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is exactly as it says on the tin – a car with two turbo. The auto can manage 0-60 in less than three seconds and hit a top speed of 248mph thanks to the all-aluminium V8 engine underneath its bonnet. The car is super light and also a smooth superfast auto with a lot going for it. So, if you want to go faster this could be the car for you.

9ff GT9- R

If you’re looking for all out power then the 9ff GT9- R has it thanks to a 4L V6 engine that has twin turbo and can produce 1120hp. The car does come with a base price of $695,000 but it smashes the two aforementioned cars and can hit 257mph. The 9ff is modelled on the Porsche 911 under a contract and is limited to only twenty units thanks to the cost of production. However, the sheer speed is something else and it really is a machine that’s been built for the road and track alike. Frontier car leasing do a plain 911, though not the 9ff.


SCC Ultimate Aero

The 1183bhp monster can manage to hit 257mph and 0-60 in 2.7 seconds thanks to its V8 engine. The car held the Guinness World Record in March 2007 and was only surpassed in 2010 and then it ended up being pushed down to number three in 2011. The American monster however still holds a quite impressive position and Shelby are said to be making a number of changes to bring it right back up to the top spot. The new SSC Tuatura may well be the car to do this.


Koenigsegg Agera R

The bigger brother of the CCX, the Agera R is a hell of a machine and comes at a high price tag of $1.6m. The engine is an 1100bhp one and it can hit 60 in under three second. The car can even be fitted with snow tyres and a Ski box if that’s the sort of thing you’re into and it’s thought that the car can go well above the 260mph it has hit – theoretically that is.


Hennessey Venom GT

The Venom GT is the second fastest car on the planet and can manage 260bhp from its 6.2l engine. It comes in with a $950,000 price tag  and it’s thought may be able to reach 275mph, meaning it could well be the fastest auto of all.


Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Veyron pushes the rest of the cars into the dust thanks to its W16, 1200bhp engine. Though it does cost a hefty sum of $2.4m it is the ultimate driving machine.
