Now that the Bugatti Veyron has ended production, it's no longer the fastest new car you can buy. In fact, several incredibly-fast cars, including the Pagani Huayra, recently sold out. If you're looking at cars you can actually buy today, these 10 are as fast as it gets.
What is there to say about the Charger Hellcat that hasn't already been said? It's a 707-horsepower family sedan that's much more affordable than you might expect.It's powerful, fast, and can hit 204 miles per hour.
Aston Martins get a lot of credit for being beautiful and get a lot of attention for being James Bond's ride of choice, but their speed isn't usually talked about. That's too bad because the V12 Vantage S makes 565 horsepower and can hit 205 miles per hour.
It may be a big, heavy Bentley, but the Continental GT Speed is still brutally fast. A 626-horsepower W12 making 607 pound-feet of torque certainly helps with that. If you have a long enough stretch of road, the fastest Bentley ever made will hit 206 miles per hour.
Even if people aren't buying enough of them to keep Vipers rolling off the assembly line much longer, it's still one of the fastest cars in the world. With an 8.4-liter V10 that makes 645 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, it should come as no surprise that the Viper can hit 206 miles per hour. And while the ACR version isn't quite as quick in a straight line, it isn't a slouch on track. It's the opposite of a slouch.
Who says speed can't be practical? Ferrari's most practical grand tourer can hit 208 miles per hour, but it can also seat four people thanks to its shooting brake design. Don't let its practicality fool you, though. Under the hood is a 651-horsepower V12.
If the Ferrari FF is too slow and too practical for you, the good news is, there's the F12berlinetta to solve your grand touring needs. It has a 730-horsepower V12 that pushes it all the way up to 211 miles per hour. We were blown away by the sheer numbers the car could put down in our instrumented testing.
If you want to go fast, using a nearly-700-horsepower V12 to do so is usually a pretty good way to go about it. In the Lamborghini Aventador, that engine is powerful enough to give it an exceptionally-high speed. If you keep your foot down long enough, you can hit 217 miles per hour.
Noble might not have the fame of Ferrari or Lamborghini, but somehow this low-volume British sports car manufacturer is still around and selling cars. The M600 is the fastest Noble ever, and it's also one of the fastest cars you can buy. With enough running room, it will hit 225 miles per hour.
The Agera RS is being limited to a run of 25 units, so there aren't many to go around, but if you want to go as fast as possible, it's the only choice you have. Koenigsegg hasn't published a top speed, but 1,160 horsepower means 250 miles per hour is pretty easily in reach, and 270 miles per hour might even be possible.
