The 12 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked

The 12 Fastest Cars in the World Ranked

Of all the cars in the world, only one has a verified top speed record above 300 mph

The first production car with a recorded speed was the 1894 Benz Velo that had a top speed of just 12 mph. Few verified records exist from that point until around 1950, when the Jaguar XK120 set a production car speed record of 124.6 mph (not to be confused with the tuned prototype that managed to hit 133 mph) From this point on, it became a trend for automotive publications to do their own top speed test. Even the venerable McLaren F1 was tested by Car & Driver, and in 2005 we got our first government-official speed record set by the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 and verified by German inspection officials in 2005. It was that moment when the official challenge between manufacturers kicked off, and since then there have only been a handful of cars up to breaking the record. This list covers the top 10 fastest cars in the world, ranked from slowest to fastest.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Ferrari SF90 Versione Speciale

It should pack more power than the SF90 and deliver improved driving dynamics

Ferrari has been testing a hardcore version of the SF90 Stradale for about a month now - at least from what we know. The first prototype was caught testing back in May around Maranello, and it seems that the Italian company is now continuing its testing session at a much higher altitude. A prototype of the SF90 Versione Speciale and a very strange-looking mule of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 were caught testing in the Alps at an altitude of approximately 2500 meters.

It’s Official: Bugatti Sucked at Developing Cars

Bugatti’s full potential was never going to be reached under Volkswagen ownership, but Rimac has big plans for the hypercar company

When it comes to the automotive industry, Rimac’s acquisition of Bugatti is one of the most epic automotive marriages in recent history. Volkswagen owned the French hypercar manufacturer since 1998, but on November 2nd, 2021, the Croatian EV manufacturer, Rimac, officially took custodianship of Bugatti. While this is a great way for both car companies to move forward, Mate Rimac’s other goal for Bugatti is to assume much better control over the development costs, which is something Volkswagen did not manage very well at all.

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars

As it turns out, cars with three-cylinder engines can be pretty fun to drive!

Gone are the days when three-cylinder engines were only meant for urban commutes. These engines were light and focused more on fuel efficiency than performance. However, things are changing, and with upsizing not an option anymore, thanks to stricter emission regulations, automakers are making the best they can with fewer cylinders and lower displacements. Companies don’t just offer them with forced induction now; they even pair them with electric motors and batteries to generate all the oomph possible. Believe it or not, there are a handful of high-performance three-cylinder engines that can blow larger engines out of the water.

US Regulations Create A Roadblock for the AMG One Supercar

US Regulations Create A Roadblock for the AMG One Supercar

It can still be imported and driven for 2,500 miles a year!

When it comes to cars banned in the U.S., the list is very long and includes a lot of cool cars like the Jaguar XJ220-S or the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-spec. Even more recent cars, like the McLaren Speedtail or the Koenigsegg One:1 are on the same list. And this is because National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has very strict criteria to determine which car is safe to be offered in the States. And when we say safe, we mean safe for the passengers, for the other drivers on the road, for the environment, and for the economy itself.

Another car that has been hit by these strict regulations is the recently-launched Mercedes-AMG One.

Rolls-Royce is all about luxury, but what if they went the other direction and built a supercar?

That’s basically what their lineup is all about right now, but what if they made a car that went the completely opposite direction? What if Rolls-Royce built a supercar?

The AMG One is a Promise that Mercedes kept even thought it probably shouldn’t
