The World’s Fastest Cars

“If speed kills me one day, don’t cry because I was smiling” – Paul Walker.

What is the point of driving a fast sports car at the slowest speed limit? It won’t provide the same kind of thrill and adrenaline compared to driving a fast car on an empty road!

But how fast is the fastest car in the world? Following are some of the picks that could easily win the fastest car award in the world!  

Hennessey Venom GT

Top Speed: 270 mph

In our list of top 4 fastest cars in the world, the Hennessey Venom GT earns the first spot without any trouble at all. This is a relatively new name in the car making industry yet has garnered a lot of excitement and popularity over a short time.

What makes it so special  is that The Hennessey Venom GT is powered with a mighty 7.0 liter Twin-Turbocharged V8 Engine which generates about 1,244 horsepower and torque of 1,155 pound-feet. This allows the beautiful car to literally fly on the road!

SSC Ultimate Aero

Top Speed: 256 mph

The long withstanding might of the VW Group as well as the prestige of the Bugatti name was threatened by the unveiling of this beautiful vehicle. Only too briefly yet enough to secure a name in the top 4 of our list!

You might have not heard about Shelby SuperCars but nearly everyone fixated with fast and beautiful has surely heard of the ultimate in super car racing, the SSC Ultimate Aero.

Upon its production, this car was the fastest in the world, hitting an astonishing 256 mph in 2007.

2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie

Top Speed: 250 mph

It isn’t always that two racing giants collaborate to give birth to something truly astounding. The 2018 Aston Martin Valkryie is that astounding hypercar creation brought in the world by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing!

Originally known as the AM-RB OO1, the Valkryie has yet to be unveiled to the public but news of the hypercar’s speed have been circulating.

We have no doubt this car will deliver considering Aston Martin used all the right parts to assemble this hulking beast.

Pagani Huayra

Top Speed: 230 mph

Want to know what makes this car go round and fast? The Pagani Huayra features a twin-turbo V12 engine, the exact same outfitted in the Mercedes-AMG. The car’s engine boasts over 720 hp and kicks out 811 lb-ft of torque!

First premiering in January 2011 at the Geneva Auto Salon, the car has since not looked back and even featured in a series of Need for Speed video game titles as well as Shift 2: Unleashed.  

It makes sense to drool over the above supercars but did you know your own car can perform just as well (perhaps not speed-wise) if only given the right kind of treatment? Call Smitty’s Auto Service today and see what we can do to optimize your car for performance!
