The 10 Fastest Cars in Britain

veyron

The cars on this list are rated based on their top speed and nothing more. Some of the cars on this list are out of this world. They have been designed and built for speed, and you may be surprised to learn that two of the top-ten fastest cars are hybrids!

1. Koenigsegg Agera R – 273mph

The Koenigsegg Agera R can reach around 273mph, and is built for flat-out speed. It costs around £1.1 million and is built in Sweden. Every square centimetre is built to be aerodynamic–including the shape of the alloy wheels.

2. Hennessy Venom get – 270mph

This car could frighten the devil out of his furry underwear with its sheer acceleration speed. It can go from 0 – 60 in just 2.5 seconds, which is enough to give anybody a nosebleed.

3. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 268mph

This list wouldn’t be complete without a Bugatti. The Dubai police have one of these as a police car. It is worth committing a crime just for a ride in one of these. The original Veyron reached 250mph, and the Super Sport has out done it by 18mph.

4. RUF CTR3 – 233mph

The RUF CTR3 cuts an impressive figure, but in terms of sports cars, you wouldn’t pay it any special attention. However, this sports car with a Porsche engine can reach up to 233mph and go from 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds.

5. Noble M600 – 225mph

This British-designed car runs at 225mph, just like the Pagani Huayra, but this car has a twin turbocharged Volvo V8 engine, and it has handling abilities that are out of this world. It drives so naturally that it almost feels like an extension of your own body.

6. Pagani Huayra – 225mph

This is the sort of car you would expect Batman to drive around in. It has a twin-turbocharged Mercedes V12 engine with a carbon fibre body. It can reach 60mph in just in 3.2 seconds.

7. Ferrari LaFerrari – 217mph

The only reason this car is number seven on the list is because it runs at 217mph, which is slower than the previous six, but that is not to say the this car isn’t fantastic. This car is jaw-droppingly amazing. Not only does it look like it is worth ten million quid, it is also a hybrid car. It is truly an astounding piece of technology that looks like it fell from a spacecraft.

8. McLaren P1 – 217mph

This is the sort of car you figure you will only ever drive in computer games. It has a level of class and sophistication that is hard to find. It is sexy, sleek, and sophisticated. It even has an electric engine that allows you to drive seven miles without any fuel in the tank.

9. Lamborghini Aventador -217mph

It seems unfair putting the Lamborghini at the number nine spot, but it too only goes 217mph, and despite its amazing four-wheel drive, it just doesn’t compare to the McLaren and Ferrari. Also, who is going off road with Lambos?

10. Porsche 918 Spyder

When you make your millions, this is the car you want. It a hybrid that can reach 214mph and is part of a limited collection. Buy this car today, and in 30 years it will be worth more than your house. You may want to store a little petrol so that the new owner can have a drive in 30 years.
