Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

Gone are the days when traveling 200 miles per hour was the benchmark only a few elite sports cars achieved.  In 1987 the Ferrari F40 first unlocked just that using bare-bones features.  While impressive then it won’t turn any brows. The cooler soccer Moms driving their sports sedans can just about hit that, that is if they removed speed limiters that currently hold them back.

Modern supercars and hypercars today don’t face these same speed limiters and are able to top out around 300 MPH.  Some of these top speeds can be had by anyone who can afford the price tag of any one of the below from our list of the world’s fastest production cars.

2019 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+

The Bugatti is known for speed record after speed record. If you have read reviews about the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300 you know just how quick this monster on wheels flies. It isn’t surprising to hear the current speed record as the fastest car in the world is currently held by the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+.

The newly engineered record breaking model is an improved regular Chiron, which is limited to 261 MPH. From air curtains added to the corners of the front bumper to a new exhaust tailpipe configuration, this hyper sports car was destined from the start to break records. 

Another noteworthy improvement made by the brand engineers included stretching the body almost 10 inches or 25 centimeters to allow “the laminar flow to pass over a longer surface, and reducing the aerodynamic stall by more than 40 percent,” according to the Bugatti’s website.

2017 Koenigsegg Agera RS

The Swedish knew what they were doing when they engineered this work of art.  The official top speed was done on a public road in the United States. Highway 160 ourside of Pahrump, Nevada, was closed long enough for the record breaking speed to be accomplished with the support of Koenigsegg and Michelin.  Now if we could only test drive one of these at a local dealership in United States.

2014 Hennessey Venom GT

Now decommissioned, a 15,000-foot NASA shuttle landing facility became the playground for this record breaking pass.  The Hennessey Performance of Sealy, Texas did what almost looks like a morphed Lotus Exige with some aerodynamic tweaks.  The Guinness Book of Records was present for the run.  The speed was hit on one of the two passes but it was not the average of the two speeds that Guiness Book of Records would prefer.
