The World's Fastest Cars - Best 0-60 and Top MPH

For millennia, mankind has been captivated with speed. Competitive speed began in Ancient Greece with foot races and Rome with chariot races, and man has never looked back. Man's yearning for speed did not take off until the first vehicles appeared in garages across Europe. 

Almost every automobile nowadays can reach speeds of 100 mph, and most family cars can reach speeds of 120 mph. Performance automobiles usually play between 140 and 170 mph. However, our desire for speed extends beyond that.

What was once a desire for 200 mph in a production vehicle is now a goal for 300 mph, as automakers attempt to add more power, better aerodynamics, and begin to use electric engines, all in the name of driving faster. Here's a comprehensive list of the world's fastest automobiles, either now in production or due to roll off the assembly line shortly.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ in 2022

The World's Fastest Cars - Best 0-60 and Top MPH

Bugatti is the Dodge of hypercars, always looking for new methods to wring more performance out of a single-engine. Its quadruple-turbocharged, 8.0-liter W16 engine wowed us in the Veyron and Veyron Super Sport — two vehicles that, if still in production, would easily make this list – but in the current Chiron Super Sport 300+, this huge engine is on a different level. 

The range-topping Chiron has 1,600 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque (600 hp and 193 lb-ft more than the original Veyron) and can reach speeds of 300 mph, as the name indicates. Bugatti achieved a top speed of 304 mph in official testing.

  • Top speed of 304 mph; 0-60 time of 2.3 seconds.
  • 1,600 hp (horsepower).
  • Price: $3.9 million Torque: 1,180 pound-feet.

Koenigsegg 2022 Absolut Jesko

The World's Fastest Cars - Best 0-60 and Top MPH

The Jesko Absolut is the latest evidence of Koenigsegg's expertise in creating conceptual hypercars. However, whereas the majority of the other automobiles on this list have hit their peak speeds, the 330 mph V-max is still theoretical. Yes, it's based on arithmetic, but no Jesko Absolut has yet to reach the magic number of 330.

The $2.8-million Swedish behemoth has the credentials for a high-speed run, with 1,600 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque from a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 and a slippery body that nevertheless delivers substantial downforce. However, we doubt the Jesko will be allowed to reach 330 mph since the greatest spot on the earth for a test, the Ehra-Lessien proving grounds in north-central Germany, is owned by Bugatti's parent company, Volkswagen.

  • 330 MPH is the top speed.
  • N/A for 0-60.
  • 1,600 hp (horsepower).
  • 1,106 pound-feet of torque.
  • The cost is $2.8 million.

Hennessey Venom F5 2022

The World's Fastest Cars - Best 0-60 and Top MPH

Ultra-high speeds aren't only a European phenomenon. Hennessey Performance Engineering in Texas also knows a thing or two about it. Hennessey says the next Venom F5 will reach speeds of 310 mph, owing to a twin-turbo 6.6-liter V8 that delivers 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 lb-ft of torque. While the price is cheaper than some of its European competitors, starting at $1.8 million, Hennessey will only produce 24 models.

  • 311 MPH is the top speed.
  • 2.4 seconds from 0 to 60.
  • 1,817 hp (horsepower).
  • 1,193 pound-feet of torque.
  • The cost is $1.8 million.

Tuatara SSC 2022

The World's Fastest Cars - Best 0-60 and Top MPH

The SSC Tuatara, ah, the SSC Tuatara. After some doubt surrounding its initial effort, the American carmaker made a second try in January 2021, setting a scorching two-way average of 282.9 mph at Space Florida's Shuttle Landing Facility's Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds. 

That's a lot slower than the stated 316 mph top speed, but with 1,750 horsepower and 1,280 lb-ft of torque, it's still quite fast for this supercar. Those stats are appropriate for a car that costs $1.9 million.

  • 282.9 MPH is the top speed.
  • 2.5 seconds from 0 to 60.
  • 1,750 hp (horsepower).
  • 1,280 pound-feet of torque.
  • The cost is $1.9 million.
