Fastest Cars

All of the cars on this list are road legal and can be bought by anyone with enough money. So they come with things like wing mirrors and have to pass safety tests. We have not looked at cars that can hit huge top speeds in a straight line, or accelerate up to phenomenal speeds very quickly. These cars are the top 5 of a large list of unmodified production cars that were driven around the same race track by the same person. They are the fastest in the world.

 

1. Ariel Atom V8

Ariel Atom

The Ariel Atom is the fastest production car around a track in the world. It is produced by a UK company and is made under licence by TMI Autotech in Virginia for the US market. It has no roof or back seats, so does not score highly in practicality terms. But it is quick. It corners like a demon, can reach 60 miles per hour in less than 3 seconds, and has a top speed of 155 miles per hour.

 

2. McLaren MP4-12C

The McLaren MP4-12C is made by the company behind the Formula 1 team McLaren. So it is packed full of F1 technology and can reach 60 miles per hour in just over 3 seconds. The top speed is 207 miles per hour. It is beautifully balanced under braking and in the twisty bits.

 

3. Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini have been making stunningly fast and incredibly sexy cars since the 1960s. The Lamborghini Aventador is the quickest around a racing track. It has a top speed of 217 miles per hour and hits 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds.

 

4. Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron was designed by Germans and built by the French. Its speed statistics are mind-boggling, particularly considering this is a production car. It hits 60 miles per hour in under 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 253 miles per hour. It does not handle corners as well as the three above, but it has pure raw speed, something that gets it to number 4 on our list.

 

5. Gumpert Apollo

Gumpert Apollo

The Gumpert Apollo is a German creation. It is not the prettiest sports car in the world, but it is fast. The top speed is 224 miles per hour and it gets to 60 miles per hour in just over three seconds.
