Top 20 Fastest Cars in 2009

This is one of those emails that gets circulated. Unfortunately I do not know who the author is but it is a very interesting email.

"Faced with the recent pub quiz question 'what is the top speed of the world's fastest production car?' the Sky Motoring quiz crew were quite appalled when (a) they had to ponder the question for a good three minutes and (b) couldn't rank the other fastest cars in an appropriate order.

So taking this simple premise, we've decided to geek up and show you (in order) the world's fastest production cars so that (a)  should this quiz question ever arise again, you are in no doubt as to the answer and (b) should you have Ronaldo's level of wedge in your pocket and fancy going 200+mph, you know exactly what to buy. Enjoy!

15 June 2009"

Bentley Continental Supersport

The 204mph, 621bhp Bentley Continental Supersport is the fastest production Bentley ever.

Porche Carrera GT

The 205mph Porsche Carrera GT is Stuttgart engineering at its best

Mercedes Mclaren SLR

The Mercedes McLaren SLR can hit 207mph. And it's an automatic. Design team lead by Gordon Murry at the time who is a South African

Dodge Viper v10

One Dodge Viper V10 + an eccentric British coach builder = the 525bhp, 210mph Bristol Fighter.

Lamborghini LP640

The first Italian supercar in our list is the 211mph Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

Ford GT

The retro-shaped Ford GT uses a thoroughly modern supercharged 5.4-litre V8 to hit 212mph.

Lamborghini Murcielago SV

The new Lamborghini Murcielago SV is lighter, harder and at 213mph, faster than the standard Murci.

Zonda F

Lamborghini's Italian neighbour Pagani has developed the stunning 215mph Zonda F.

 

Jaguar

It may not quite have been the car we were hoping for, but the Jaguar XJ220 could still hit 217mph.

Designed by Keith Helfet, as South African

Ferrari Enzo

That's the same top-speed as the much more recent Ferrari Enzo, named after Ferrari's founder.

Ascari

The British-built Ascari A10 uses a tuned BMW V10 to hit 220mph.

Gumpert

The Gumpert Apollo may be a bit of an ugger and have a stupid name, but how many cars can go 224mph? ...

Edonis

The B-engineering Edonis develops 680bhp from its quad turbo 3.7litre V6 to hit 227mph. Gulp.

Gumpert apollo

Obviously the standard Apollo wasn’t fast (or ugly) enough, hence the 230mph Gumpert Apollo Speed.

McClaren F1

The McLaren F1 was doing 240mph 17-years ago! Just shows how much of an engineering marvel it was.
Design team lead by Gordon Murry at the time who is a South African

Koenigsegg

You can tell the Koenigsegg CCX has a blistering top speed of 245mph just by looking at it. Scary.

Saleen s7

The American-built Saleen S7 can hit 248mph. OK, this is getting ridiculous now...

Porche 9ff GT9

The Porsche 9ff GT9 is one of three cars able to break the 250mph barrier.

Bugatti Veryon

And you thought the 253mph Bugatti Veyron would be top of the list. Not any more.

ssc ultimate

The top spot now goes to Shelby Supercars and the 257mph SSC Ultimate Aero
