This article is a list of some of the best fast cars thorough out the world. All of these cars can go up to 200 mph or more. All the speed limits, features, and other factors of each car are discussed in this article. With every passing day, cars have started to go even faster. Cars can now even go up to 350 miles per hour. The First car to ever achieve the 200 mph mark was the Ferrari F41 in the year 1987 and since then there are many cars in the market that support up to 200 mph or higher. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the cars that can reach more than 200 mph.
01. Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
One of the best muscle cars of all time is the Dodge Challenger. Dodge’s SRT Hellcat, however, cemented the Challenger’s place as the top in the muscle car segment in 2015.
It is equipped with a monstrous supercharged Hemi V8 engine that pushes out 707 horsepower, one of the most powerful engines ever installed in a muscle car. The SRT Hellcat is a great car with its 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. The car is also used in many places for racing.
02. Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron can go up to 261mph and its latest model can go even up to 300mph. One of the Bugattis on our list is the Bugatti Chiron standard. Chiron’s power was upgraded to 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet, a change compared with the Veyron. In comparison to the Veyron Super Sport, the Chiron’s top speed is officially limited to 261 mph.
03. Hennessey Venom F5
In the past, there was no faster car than Hennessey Performance Engineering. In theory and in actuality, the F5 surpasses the next fastest car by a wide margin, having a top speed of 301 mph, topping the Venom GT by a considerable margin
With 1,600 horsepower, the Venom F5 features a 7.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a carbon fibre chassis. Known as the Venom F5, this supercar was equipped with one of the most advanced V-8s on the market that has the ability to produce over 1800 horses and almost 1,200 pound-feet of torque.
Despite Hennessey not having legitimized its claims, the F5 is reported to go from zero to 249 mph within 30 seconds. Just getting from zero to 100 mph takes about that long for a mild sports car.
During its most recent test run at NASA’s runway in Florida, the Venom F5 was clocked at 271.6 mph, a speed that is about five mph faster than the previous run at NASA’s runway in Louisiana, where the company claims the Venom F5 can sprint to 60 mph in under three seconds. Its ultimate goal is to reach 311 mph.
04. Audi R8 V10
There has been a long list of cars that Audi has taken pride in over the years, but few of them are as iconic as the R8. When the R8 debuted in the mid-2000s, it was greeted by gearheads as one of the most outstanding cars in the growing all-wheel-drive car market with its unique design, advanced technology, and power.
A number of versions of the R8 have been made over the years, and one of the most popular is the V10. A 5.2-liter V10 engine was installed in the R8 V10 to give it 525 horsepower, and this made the car a very fast car.
05. Koenigsegg Agera RS
This car has a top speed of 278 mph. On November 17, 2017, the Agera RS, the most powerful version of the Agera, became the fastest car in the world, when Koenigsegg reached an average speed of 277.9 mph while testing the car.
Even though the record lasted for less than two years, the Agera RS still holds a handful of benchmarks, including 0 to 200 mph acceleration, 0 to 200 mph braking, 0 to 200 mph reverse and 0 to 200 mph with full braking.
The Agera RS from Koenigsegg was not produced in a limited edition version to celebrate the record, but only 25 cars were made. To reach 0 to 60 mph the car requires 2.6 seconds. The Price of the car is $2.5 million.
06. Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
A high-speed road behaviour and aerodynamics were worked on by Jesko Absolut to make it unbelievably fast. With changes like extended rear hoods, covered rear wheels, and lowered suspension, it has a drag coefficient of just 0.278.
With the Jesko Absolut, the company has streamlined aerodynamics and improved high-speed road performance to make it one of the fastest cars ever.
Several changes have been made to the car to reduce drag, such as an extended rear hood, covered rear wheels, and lowered suspension. Moreover, the front hood air ducts are closed, whereas the massive rear wings lack louvres. With a 330 mph top speed, the $2.8 million Absolut Jesko has 1,600 horsepower.
07. Bentley Continental Flying Spur
With the Continental Flying Spur, Bentley competes with luxury sedans such as the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach. In the same way that the Continental GT helped Bentley recover from its decline in the early 2000s, the Flying Spur also contributed to Bentley’s resurgence when it brought in thousands of sales.
A majority of the mechanical components of the Continental GT were used in the Flying Spur as well as a 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine generating 544 horsepower inside the car. As a sports car half the weight of the Flying Spur, it would not have been able to compete with sports cars with top speeds of 200mph. The price of the car is $70,000.
08. McLaren 600LT
The 600LT is a McLaren that is known for producing cars that are unbelievably fast, and it is perfectly suited to fulfil this promise. There is a turbocharged 3.8-litre V-8 engine under the hood of the 600LT, which generates 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission transmits power to the rear wheels.
There is a claim that the 600LT Spider will be able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, according to McLaren. There is no doubt that the 570’s track-ready Longtail sibling, has the same top speed as the 570, which is 204 mph. In addition to being much more powerful, there are also a lot more drag-inducing aero bits on the car, so we bet they cancel each other out.
09. Hennessey Venom GT
Since its introduction in 2011, the Venom GT has been in production until 2017. There were only 13 cars built despite the popularity and extreme speed. The car was able to reach 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and the highest speed is about 270 mph.
Its engine is a twin-turbo V-8 powered by a 7.0 litre, based on the Lotus Exige. The engine is powered by General Motors’ LS7 V-8 and has a horsepower rating of 1,244 and a torque rating of 1,155. During the launch of the car at Kennedy Space Center in Florida in February 2014, the Venom GT reached 270.4 mph.
Despite Hennessey’s record-breaking speed during the year of the car launch, the Guinness Book of Records did not recognize his single-direction run.
10. SSC Tuatara
The SSC Tuatara is the fastest legal street car in the world, The car is very fast and can go up to an average of 282.9 mph making it even faster than the also fast Koenigsegg Agera RS.
For the engine production, SSC has partnered with Nelson Racing Engines, Linder Power Systems, and Automac for the fabrication of the sub-assemblies of the engine, as well as Automac to manufacture the 7-speed automated manual transmission.
Eventually, CIMA revealed that the transmission was a seven-speed automated manual. There are three driving modes on the car namely the Sport mode, Track mode and the Lift mode. Front and rear ride heights are 102 mm and 114 mm, respectively, in Sport mode.
The ride height is lowered by 2.75 inches (70 mm) in Track mode, and by 3.75 inches (95 mm) in Normal mode. While driving over speed bumps or driveways, the Lift mode protects the car’s underbody.
11. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 C6
For the third-generation Corvette, Chevy released the ZR1 performance package in 1970, which included power boosts and upgrades. Chevy has introduced a ZR1 package for nearly all Corvette generations since the ZR1 package was so popular.
As the high-performance version of the lightweight Z06, the C6 ZR1 was the first high-performance version to be introduced in 2007. The C6 ZR1 has been equipped with a 6.2-litre supercharged LS9 V8 which produces 638 horsepower. The C6 ZR1 is capable of 205 mph at top speed. The price of the car is $55,000.
12. Cadilac CTS-V
The Cadillac CTS sedan was launched in the early 2000s as Cadillac sought to compete with European luxury sedans giants such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz for the compact luxury sedan market, which was largely dominated by compact luxury sedans. Cadillac introduced the CTS-V in 2004 to replace the CTS, which looked gorgeous but did not have as much power as the competition.
In 2016, the third and final generation of the CTS-V was introduced, and it was every bit as good as its predecessors. Under the hood of the 2016 CTS-V was a 640-horsepower 6.2-litre supercharged V8.
