World’s Fastest cars

Here is the countdown to the all-time top 7 fastest production cars of the world:

7. Ferrari 288 GTO

This first came into production in 1985, with a max speed of 188mph. Well, it has always been in the top 10 fastest production cars, ever since.

6. Porsche 959 Sport

Released in the market in 1987, like the Ferrari GTO, this car had also been topping the list  with 197mph speed.

5. Ferrari F40

Another Ferrari in the list. This one was also released in 1987, but was just a bit faster than the Porsche, at 202mph.

4. Bugatti EB110 GT

Not the most commonly known Bugatti. But, even this production car has a high speed of 209mph.

3. Jaguar XJ220

First seen in 1992, in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing, this is a mid-engined suparcar produced by Jaguar.¬†Although the XJ220 was not built in compliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards of the United States, it has since become possible to privately import it to the US under the “Show and Display” exemption. This car has a Cosworth-designed, TWR-developed, Twin-turbo 90 degree, V6 quad-cam engine. It reaches a max power of 542bhp @ 7000rpm, and a max torque of 475lb-ft @ 4500rpm.

What would you like to do with a car that attains a maximum speed of 267.856mph? I would simply take it out for a long ‘flight’. First produced in 2010, this is the fastest street-legal production car in the world. The base price of this wonder is USD 2.7 million. It reaches 0-60mph in 2.4secs, while for reaching 150mph, it takes just a little longer, 9.8secs.
