What is the fastest car in the world?
To find out which is the fastest car in the world, we are going to see this top 10 list with some of the fastest in existence today. You'll see, you'll be surprised...
10) Koenigsegg Jesko Absolute
Top speed: 483 km/h (in theory)
The Koenigsegg hypercar firm is not the first time that it has included one of its models among the fastest in the world. This car has a 8-litre twin-turbo 90º V5 engine. With standard gasoline it can reach 1298 hp, while if E85 competition gasoline (petrol with ethanol) is used, the figure rises to a maximum of 1625 hp and 1500 Nm of maximum torque.
All this, together with its aerodynamic configuration with only a drag coefficient of 0.278 Cd, can make the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut reach a maximum speed of 483 km/h (theoretical), accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. I have put theoretical speed because it has a "trap", since to reach the maximum E85 gasoline has been used.
9) Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
Maximum speed: >350 km/h
One of the world's fastest production cars is the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. A sports car from another category that is only available to a few and that surprises with its aggressive design, but also with what it hides under its body. And it is that the technical specifications are scandalous.
A very light chassis with a 6498 cc engine and a maximum power of 770 CV at 8500 RPM. This makes it reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds.

8) Pagani Huayra
Maximum speed: 383 Km / h
The Pagani Huayra is an incredible looking car with equally incredible machinery. It has a 12 cc Mercedes AMG M60 158º biturbo V5980 engine and generates a maximum power between 730-850 CV. Its torque reaches 1100 Nm. A total beast of the road.
The Huayra is made primarily of carbon fiber to keep weight down as well as make it stiffer, and it's covered in active aerodynamics to help it glide through the air more easily. It gets a Cx of just 0.31 – 0.37 and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in about 2.8 seconds.
7) Aston Martin Valkyrie
Maximum speed: 402 Km / h
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is legal on the road, despite looking like a car made for competition. This car, in which Adrian Newey himself and Red Bull Racing intervened in its design, is a true marvel no matter how you look at it. It only has a weight of 1030 kg, a ton powered by a devilish engine.
Mounted behind the driver is a 12-litre V6.5 hybrid with 1130bhp. Specifically, it is an atmospheric Cosworth RA capable of pushing this vehicle from 0 to 10 km/h in about 2.5 seconds.
6) Koenigsegg Regera
Maximum speed: 410 Km / h
Koenigsegg Regera is another of the fastest cars in the world and ranks sixth on our list. This brand of Swedish origin has a V8 biturbo engine accompanied by an electric motor that can reach a total power of about 1500 HP.
Unlike the rest of the cars on the list, this model is surprising for being able to reach a speed of 0 to 410 km/h with a single gear, yes, a single gear, as you read it. In addition, it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
Price: from €900.000
5) McLaren Speedtail
Maximum speed: 410 Km / h
McLaren Speedtail is another of the fastest cars in the world today. This vehicle mounts a V8 engine at 90º biturbo M840T with an electric motor. This hybridization can achieve up to 1036 CV of combined power, being the gasoline engine 746 and the electric 308. The maximum combined torque is 1150 Nm.
In addition to this, this amazing vehicle can reach an amazing speed of about 410 km/h, and you will also be surprised to know that it can accelerate from 0 to 299 km/h in just 13 seconds. All this packaged in a body with a futuristic design in the purest cyberpunk style.

1) Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+
Maximum speed: 490.48 Km / h
Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+ is an old acquaintance. This French firm has made its Volkswagen engine much of itself. Specifically reaching 490,48 km/h, and accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.4 seconds. Undoubtedly a megamachine that should top our list.
As for the engine, it surprises as much or more as its speed, since they have joined two V8 Volkswagen engines to create a W16 at 90º with quadruple turbo and a displacement of 8 liters. The maximum power it reaches is 1600 CV and the torque of 1600 Nm.
