It’s hard to keep up with the fast cars in the world (literally). Automobile technology is constantly improving and changing to make cars faster. However, if a car is fast enough it remains at the front for many years, like some of the fast cars on this list.

All of these fast cars are street legal, although some of them are no longer in production. These are also base models. Sport models and special editions have not been added to this list. And they’re all able to reach 400km/h and over.

SSC Ultimate Aero

Fastest Cars

In 2007, the Guinness World Records organisation name the SSC Ultimate Aero as the fastest production car in the world. It has gone out of production in 2013.

It is able to reach a top speed of over 400km/hour (256 miles/hour) and costs about $225 000.

2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie

This is one of the ultimate fast cars. Birthed as a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing, the Valkyrie can reach speeds of up to 402km/h. It boasts a 6.5-liter V-12 engine and will set you back $3 million!

Bugatti Chiron

It’s one of the fast cars that has blown car enthusiasts away. The Bugatti Chiron was released in 2016 and has since smashed speed records.

This fast car is able to reach speeds of up to 420km/h (261 miles/h).

Hennessey Venom GT

Speeding onto roads in 2014, the Venom GT remains one of those fast cars you just wish you could take for spin. Actually, seeing as the Venom GT can go up to 435.31km/h (270.49 mph) it’s more like taking it for a tornado.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

Not only can this fast car reach well over 400km/h, but it can also go from 0 km/h to 400 km/h and back to 0 in 36.44 seconds. It has been able to reach top speeds of 457.94 km/h (284.55 mph).
