posted by Chris Valentine

You’re racing down the Autobahn in your exotic car, and you see someone else trying to race you. They’re trying to test your metal. This could be your reality, not just in your dreams.

If you’re an exotic car enthusiast with a serious need for speed, getting your dream car is just the first step. You have to know the top 9 fastest cars so you can see what’s the best of the best.

Here is a quick guide to the fastest cars you’ll be likely to see.

The Fastest Cars on the Road

These cars are the fastest and fiercest on the road. However, there is no real consensus on who is the top dog. So its truly up to whichever is your preference.

Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut

Starting off the list is the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut. Made by a Swedish automaker, it is ann absolute beast that can reach a top speed of 330mph, or 531km/h.

Undoubtedly one of the fastest cars of 2021 even though the company has not officially released all the specs.

Hennessey Venom

Now there are two venoms that should be on this list: the Venom GT and the Venom F5. However, we will stick with the faster of the two, the F5.

Coming in at a whopping 310mph, this one has a 0 to 60 in under two seconds. Also its extremely rare, as only twenty-four were made, and its price tag at $1.6 million shows why.

SSC Tuatara

This one is so fast its not even legal. Literally. It has no mirrors, and instead uses guiding cameras. But this American based supercar comes in at 331 mph (proven!).

It boasts 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and is a beauty to boot.

Bugatti Veyron

We enter the stretch of Bugattis as the company always seems to have at least one of their cars on the top 9 list.

The Veyron broke records back in 2005 and has a mouth-watering 1,001 horsepower. Although it looks bulky, don’t let it fool you, it still can reach 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.

Bugatti Chiron 300+

Another sought after Bugatti, this one was the first to cross the elusive 300 marker, hence the name.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

This one is as rare as it is fast, only releasing 30 units. It has everything the regular Veyron has except more horsepower, 184 more horses to be exact. Talk about getting your dream car in a split second!

Saleen S7

This one was famous in most American underground racing circuits because of its illegality. But the S7 is a timeless classic.

It was a few horses short of the Bugatti Veyron at 248.5, but made a name for its parent company in the process.

SSC Ultimate Aero

This is the car that took the record away from the Bugatti Veyron. The Ultimate Aero had a jaw-dropping 1,183 horsepower and a top speed of 256.1mph.

SSC increased the horsepower to 1,300 toward the end of production but discontinued it in favor of developing the tuatara

Devel Sixteen

This one is shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Its being lauded by its manufacturer to be a 347mph monster with an unbelievable 5,007 horsepower.

It’s still in development, but if these figures are to be believed, then it’ll be the undisputed champion of the road for awhile.

Knowing the Top 9 Fastest Cars

The top 9 fastest cars change regularly, so always be on the lookout for new names and rising stars. But they don’t just have to be a dream car, they can be a reality. Go out there and work for that dream car of yours.
