World’s most strongest car & World’s most powerful car
1. Koenigsegg Agera RS
The honour of building the fastest car in the world goes to Koenigsegg.
The Agera RS clocked an average speed of 277mph across two runs in Las Vegas in November 2017 – shattering the official Bugatti Veyron record and even topping the Henessey Venom GT’s unofficial run.
The Agera RS also holds the title of fastest car from zero to 400kph and back to zero again.
It’s tipped to get even faster, too, as the race to 300mph hots up.
Engine size: 1,360bhp, 5.0-litre V8
Top speed: 277 mph
2. Hennessey Venom GT
Tested at the Kennedy Space Centre in 2014, the Venom clocked a time of 270.49mph, narrowly edging out the former title holder – the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
Unfortunately for Hennessy, as their test was only conducted in one direction under one set of wind conditions, and only 12 cars were ever made, it did not meet the Guinness World Record’s criteria for the fastest production car.
The record adjudicator did, however, acknowledge that it could be classified as a production vehicle.
While the legal tape may have confused it, there are no denying the facts – the Venom is one fast car.
Engine size: 1,244bhp twin-turbo V8
Top speed: 270 mph
3. Bugatti Chiron
The Chiron – one of the most expensive in the world – is also one of the fastest.
While capable of hitting 261mph with a speed limiter installed for safety reasons, manufacturers claim it is capable of as much as 288mph without a restriction.
It’s being readied for a record run to try and take top spot on this list.
Engine size: 1,470bhp quad-turbo 8-litre W16
Top speed: Over 261 mph
Price: £2 million
4. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
A former holder of the official title of the world’s fastest production car, there was a time when the Super Sport ruled the roads.
Clocked at 267.91 in 2010, the Bugatti shot into the Guinness Book of World Records.
But the time was set with the car’s speed limiter removed, meaning it would take second place to younger brother Chiron in an unrestricted race between the two.
Engine size: 1,184bhp quad-turbo W16
Top speed: 267 mph
Price: £2 million
5. SSC Ultimate Aero
Up until 2010, the Aero was the world’s quickest production car.
It set a record 256.23mph in Nevada in 2007, holding the title for three years before being dethroned by the Super Sport.
Engine size: 1,287bhp 6.3-litre twin turbo V8
Top speed: 256 mph
6. Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
Produced for just six years between 2000-2006, the Saleen S7 is now a rare classic.
Despite being American owned, it was originally designed and built entirely in the UK.
Engine size: 750bhp 7.0-litre aluminium V8
Top speed: 248 mph
Price: Approx £540,000
7. Koenigsegg CCR
You had to be quick to get your hands on one of these.
Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg made just 14 of their CCR, and ceased its production in 2006 after just two years.
Engine size: 1,346bhp 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8
Top speed: 242 mph
Price: £1.1 million
8. McLaren F1
An absolute calssic in the world of supercars, everyone loves the F1 – even Mr Bean actor Rowan Atkinson had one.
More than 100 were sold before it ceased production in 1998.
Following the end of the F1, British-owned McLaren Automotive did not produce a car wholly designed and built by them until 2011 when they released the MP4-12C.
Engine size: 672bhp 6.1-litre V12
Top speed: 241 mph
9. Pagani Huayra BC
A big hit with the Top Gear crew, the Italian-made Huayra was named the hypercar of the year in 2012 by Top Gear Magazine.
Pagani’s beast was also once the holder of the lap record on the Top Gear Test Track.
Engine size: 720bhp twin-turbo V12
Top speed: 238 mph
Price: £1 million
10. Zenvo ST1
If the Danish pastry is the sweetest thing to come out of Denmark, the ST1 is a close second.
The first model from small manufacturer Zenvo, the 15 models made were built predominantly by hand among the company’s small team of workers.
Engine size: 1,104bhp twincharged 6.8-litre V8
Top speed: 233 mph
Price: Approx £1 million
