Here’s a list of the fastest cars in the world that are legally drive on the streets. Despite big city streets in nearly all part of the world becoming more crowded, but the desire to have a car capable of speeding is still quite high. Super fast cars are being updated with the latest innovations and giving higher top speed. Let’s take a look at top 10 fastest cars in the world that are legally drive on the street.
1. Dagger GT: 267 mph, 0-60 in 1.5 seconds (to be released soon).
This is America’s greatest, powerful and fastest supercars yet. It has the European styling and the American muscles. The car is one of a kind with 2700 HP and may drive up to 315 mph or 500 km/h. The car is custom designed and hand made to your specifications. It includes dual aluminum intercoolers and 4 aluminum radiators and features an extreme biometric security system.
Update (04-05-2013): The company still needs to reveal live action shots of the Dagger GT, but they have released a video of the American hyperbeast. When the time comes that the company releases the car – according to them, they’re rolling out one of the two Dagger GT prototype – we’re gearing up for an ultimate speed-shaker of a ride, a car that could potentially shatter just about every speed record ever set for production cars.
2. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 268 mph, 0-60 in 2.4 seconds
This is a lightweight super car powered by 8.0-liter W16 engine with 1200 horsepower. It sells at $2,400,000, easily one of the highest priced cars in the top 10 list. The car is produced by Volkswagen Group subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles and was introduced in 2005 as the fastest production car in the world. The car now holds the record for the average top speed of 431 km/h or 267 mph in the Guinness Book of Records.
The name Super Sport comes from a suffix that has been associated with Chevy’s SS cars. Many variations have been applied to Bentleys and Jaguars.
3. Hennessey Venom GT: 275 mph, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds-
It is significant for its lightweight carbon fibre bodywork and carbon fibre wheels. It includes traction wheels and is equipped with a removable roof. According to Don Goldman (CEO), the car is perfect for those seeking a visceral, yet raw driving experience.
The 2013 models are running out. Only 5 were built, 2 of which have already been ordered.
4. SSC Ultimate Aero: 257 mph, 0-60 in 2.7 seconds
This ultra high performance car is quite different from the other cars on the list for good reasons. As a brain child of Jerod Shelby, it runs on a Twin Turbo V8 1183 HP Engine and can be owned for a base price of $650, 000. Recently modifications were made to the car, most notably the 20% increase in engine airflow and the new AeroBrake system with spoilers. With the appropriate transmission gear ratios, the car could reach a speed of 273 mph.
The car itself features butterfly doors (similar to McLaren F1 and Enzo Ferari) and carbon fiber and titanium. Carbon fibre and titanium are used to help limit the weight of the car. Well done for Americans!
5. Pagani Zonda R: 220 mph, 0-60 in 2.7 seconds
This car sells in the U.K. for 1.3 million pounds and is powered by a V12 engine at 750 hp. It is quite different from the Zonda F, carrying only 10% of the latter’s specs. The car was first introduced into the market in 2007 and is known as the car that never dies.
Deserving to be on the list, it is significant as it is the world’s first carbon titanium chassis.
