Who doesn’t love a little power under the hood and some speed on the street? When it comes to fast cars, many of the exotics deliver. But sometimes you just want to go beyond the garden variety fast to something that offers a little more speed and a lot more excitement. If you’re wondering what the fastest cars are right now, we’ve got the scoop for you.
The fastest cars of 2018 are:
- Hennessey Venom FS – 301 mph – With a carbon fiber chassis that weighs a mere 2,950 pounds, the Venom is blowing preconceived notions about speed right out the window. The 7.4-liter twin turbo V8 offers up 1,600 horsepower. When you need speed, Hennessey is the word.
- SSC Tuatara – 300 mph – Coming in at a very close second is the SSC Tuatara. In case you didn’t know, the SSC means Shelby Super Cars (no relation to Carroll Shelby). The 5.9-liter supercharged V8 keeps the promise of performance and speed true to life.
- Keonigsegg Agera RS – 278 mph – This is the first car on our list that has actually verified its speed, so technically, it is the fastest car. Multiple speed tests give this car an average speed of 277.9 mph, but its highest recorded speed is 284.55 mph.
- Hennessey Venom GT – 270 mph – This entry in our top five fastest cars is a bit of a controversy. Some contend that because of its hand-built nature, the Venom GT is not actually a production car. Still, there’s no denying that this car is fast, so it’s definitely earned its spot here.
- Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 268 mph – You can’t talk about the fastest cars without slipping in a Bugatti somewhere. And fifth place is not too shabby. The quad turbocharged W16 engine puts this little beauty in a class all by itself and the $1.7 million price tag makes is elite.
