Here Are Some of the Fastest Cars Around

Wondering how fast a car can go has been a tradition practically since the inception of horseless carriages. Several
compete for the top spot each year. 
The stakes only get higher as combinations of gas-powered and electric motors grow more intricate and engineers come up with new ways to improve torque and handling. Top speeds for non-jet-powered cars are now around the mind-blowing 300-mph mark, and there appears to be no ceiling. Here are some of the fastest cars that are in production or slated for release soon.
These are some of the quickest cars in the world.

Cars with a top speed of around 200 mph

gives us a nice breakdown of 20 of these lightning-fast vehicles. At a top speed of 211 mph, the
2020 Ferrari 812
SuperFast and 2020 Ferrari SF90 Stradale share last place on the list. The SuperFast boasts a 6.5-liter V-12 engine and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The SF90 Stradale offers a 4.0-liter V-8 engine and goes from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. Both are, of course, iconically beautiful in that inimitable Ferrari way.
Coming in at the top speeds of 216, 217, and 218 mph are the 2020 Ford GT, the 2022 Mercedes-AMG One, and the 2020 Lamborghini Sian Roadster, respectively. Ford’s inclusion on this list may be surprising, given the brand’s typical offerings, but this gorgeous sports car looks more than ready to take on the field with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and 660 horsepower.
The pricey Mercedes-AMG One, costing $2.7 million, sports an intriguing combination of a 1.6-liter four-cylinder and three electric motors under the hood, but it’s clearly working. The Lamborghini Sian Roadster one-ups the Mercedes with an even heftier price tag of $3.6 million, but only has 1 mph extra to brag about. Like the Mercedes, its combination engine gives it the edge: lucky drivers enjoy a 6.5-liter V-12 engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system to support it.

Cars in the middle of the pack

Rounding out the middle range are a few obvious vehicles and some that are more surprising. The electric 2020 Rimac Concept_One gets a top speed of 221 mph, powered by four electric motors under the hood. Back in the world of gas, you’ll find the Pagani Huayra BC Roadster, a convertible with a V-12 engine that tops out at 236 mph. The 2021 Koenigsegg Gemera is another vehicle that combines gas (twin-turbo two-liter three-cylinder) and electric (three motors), showing off with a 0-60 time of 1.9 seconds.
In the 250+ plus club, we get the 2021 McLaren Speedtail, the 2021 Aston Martin Valkyrie, and the 2021 SSC Tuatara. It’s no surprise that we see a McLaren on this list, and this one comes in at a comfortable 250 mph, using its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
Any Aston Martin is bound to impress, and the V-12 Valkyrie does not disappoint. It reportedly comes in at over 250 mph. The SSC Tuatara claims a 316 mph average but was officially timed at 282.9 mph with its crank V-8 engine.

Breaking 300 mph

The 2020 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ fittingly kicks off our list of cars that can get 300 mph or more. It’s equipped with a quadruple turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine and offers a top speed of 304 mph. It comes with a $3.9 million price tag. The 2021 Hennessey Venom F5 looks built for unbelievable speed, and it is—its makers claim it gets upwards of 310 mph. A ​​twin-turbo 6.6-liter V8 engine will rocket it from 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.
Finally, coming in at a blistering 330 mph is the 2021 Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut. Motor1 noted that the crucial caveat here is that we’re relying on some math to tell us this, as no one has actually driven the car this fast yet. This may be for the simple reason that there is nowhere to test it that isn’t owned by a rival. And who at Bugatti or Hennessey wants to give them a chance to move from the theoretical to the real top spot?
