A countdown of the 5 fastest street legal cars in the world, ordered on top speed.
4. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo – Top Speed 248mph
3. SSC Ultimate Aero – Top Speed 257mph
Produced from 2006 to 2013, only two street legal cars in the world would get the better of the SSC Ultimate Aero. It accelerates from 0 – 60mph in 2.7 seconds and was the fastest car in the world when tested in 2007.
It is not difficult to understand why this immense supercar is so quick – the model is equipped with a monstrous 6.2-litre LS9 Turbocharged Twin Turbo V8 Engine producing 1200 bhp. It reaches 60mph from a standstill in a devestating 2.5 seconds. True Venom.
If you a thing or two about automobiles then there’s no prizes for guessing which speedster comes out on top. The Bugatti Veyron is simply a breath-taking piece of German engineering, one which can reach 60mph from a standstill in 2.4 seconds. It looks superb and costs well in excess of £1 millon. At top speed its tyres only last for 38 miles – which would actually be less than 9 minutes – and they cost around £23,000 to replace!
