The exhilarating thrill of speed has charmed and captivated enthusiasts and car drivers for decades. It seems that speed aside from reliability is considered a main requirement for some car buyers when investing their hard-earned cash. Anything better than what the other person owns and drives is always a welcome option, thus it’s no longer surprising to hear someone asks ‘how fast can it go’ inside a car dealership. And for some auto enthusiasts and collectors, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the cost that they are willing shell out for a much faster car. The good news is that there’s a nice selection of production cars available that are competing for the title the fastest cars in the world. We put emphasis on production cars, so we can limit the survey to cars available to the general public and not those used by professional racers and bespoke and custom sports car tuned for eccentric and performance-loving individuals. So what could be the fastest production cars in the world? Read on, pay attention to their promised speed and performance, and marvel at these engineering creations that sustain the need of everyone for speed.

1. Hennesy Venom GT

Hennesy Venom GT

Deciding what’s fastest is a highly polarizing and news-worthy discussion. Just ask the designers and makers of the Hennesy Venom GT. For a brief period of time, the Hennesy Venom GT produced industry-leading top speeds, particularly an industry-shattering 270.4 mph speed that was recorded at the Kennedy Space Center. Thanks to a superb combo of a 1,244 horsepower 7-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine and a Lotus Elise chassis, the Venom easily trounces previous speed records including that of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, well at least for a time. Soon after the release of the speed record, questions were tossed and a debate on what’s the definition of fastest has ensued. Unfortunately, Venom is at the losing side of the debate. It was tested for just one run in a single direction, the car is hand-built and there are less than 30 Venoms made. At least, it can out-run any car on a strip.
