Top Ten Fastest Car n the world! David Lim, Auckland, New Zealand

Bugatti Veyron
Top Speed: 252.2 mph
1001 Horsepower
No surprises here, the fastest and most powerful production car ever makes the top of the list. I wonder when Koenigsegg will decide to take the #1 position and beef up the CCX.

Koenigsegg CCX
Top Speed: 250 mph
900 Horsepower As said above, we expect Koenigsegg to take the number one spot eventually; those crazy Swedes aren’t fooling around.

Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo
Top Speed: 248 mph
750 Horsepower
VCars didn’t specify that it’s an S7 Twin-Turbo, but that’s what they’re talking about. This is one bad-ass car.

McLaren F1
Top Speed: 240.14
620 Horsepower
Can you believe this? The McLaren F1 was made in 1994, 13 years ago, and it’s still one of the fastest cars in the world. This happens to be the first car on this list I would purchase if I had the cash. Then I’d buy the Koenigsegg.

Ferrari Enzo
Top Speed: 217 mph
657 Horsepower
Ferrari’s newest Mega-Car seems to have people crashing it left and right, but the drivers always walk away fine (physically.) With only 399 of these ever made, the value of the car goes up with each crash.

Jaguar XJ220
Top Speed: 217 mph
549 Horsepower
Even older than the McLaren F1, the Jaguar XJ220 has been on this list since 1992. Be sure to check out the Pininfarina version as well.

Pagani Zonda Roadster
Top Speed: 215 mph
602 Horsepower Yes, we know this is a picture of the Roadster, not the Zonda F. With Pagani’s new Zonda R on the way, the Zonda might be creeping up on this list faster than Bugatti can say “We need bigger turbos.”

Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Top Speed: 213 mph
633 Horsepower VCars got a little bit confused here. The title suggests they mean the standard Murcielago, but the top speed and pictures tell us they’re talking about the LP640. Let’s clear this up a bit…the horsepower on the LP640 is 640 (hence the name,) and the hp rating on the standard Murcielago is 580.

Porsche Carerra GT
Top Speed: 209 mph
605 Horsepower
Porsche’s fastest, most attractive (and most expensive) car to date comes in at #9.

Mercedes McLaren SLR

Top Speed: 207 mph
626 Horsepower
