The Rise of Speedsters: The Fastest Production Cars Ever Made

Published

on

Whatever you’re a car enthusiast or not there is a sense of appreciation for fast cars. Watching a Formula one car speed across the race track and hearing the engine roar is satisfying. You almost get to feel like you’re in the driver seat. This is made possible with powerful engines and near instantaneous transmission that allow the vehicle to race from zero to 60 in a few seconds. Thankfully, companies have made it available for people who don’t have a career in the racing industry so for this article we’re going to look at the top ten fastest production cars that break the 200 meter per hour threshold. The list starts from slowest to fastest and we’ve included similar performing cars to put variety.

Coming in at the first of this list and breaking the 200 meter per hour with an excess of two is Mercedes-AMT GT Black series. Following the recent success of GT 63 S 4-door being the fastest executive car to round the Nürburgring, the Black series officially becomes the only legal-production car to dominate the German track. Modifications to the 4.0 liter Twin Turbo V8 engine made it possible for the sports coupe to set the record with top speed of 202 mph.

Slightly faster than the Mercedes-Benz AMT GT Black series, and we really mean slightly, the 2021 McLaren GT Breaks the 200 meter per hour limit at 203 mph. It may have something to do with those butterfly doors or that it has the same Twin Turbo V8 engine but this production car is as beautiful as its performance. McLaren usually focuses on more comfortable drives but this time they’re bringing speed into the mission statement.

The newest addition and also the most alien looking car is another McLaren. Topping a speed of 205 mph, the McLaren 765LT is the lighter cousin of the previous entry. The amazing aerodynamic design may have contributed to a slightly faster McLaren and we actually love it. An impressive output of 755 horsepower brings the car from zero to 60 under 2.7 seconds.

Beating the McLaren 765 LT is the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S. Also achieving the same 205 miles per hour speed, it beats the previous entry by going from 0 to 60 in 2.2 seconds.

The first and only sedan on this list is the 2021 Bentley Flying Spur. With a speed of 207 mph, the Bentley isn’t going to hold back and incorporates more speed to the already sassy and classy reputation the brand holds.

The twin turbo 5.2 liter V12 should have a better output than a V8 engine. But the Aston Martin DB11 equipping said engine actually reached a max speed of 208 mph. The V12 engine provides a 630 horsepower output to get the DB11 where it needs to be. This is our first top 5 entry and is rightfully one of the fastest cars for 2021.

Finally the first to go over the initial 10mph increment is the 2021 Ferrari F8 Tributo. This mid-engine has a top speed of 211 mph and will probably be the last in its lineup to exclude electric assistance, so expect hybrid transmission for its younger siblings set to hit the roads anytime soon.

And another Ferrari on this list! The 2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale hits 211 mph – as fast as the Tributo. The hybrid is powered by a 3.9 liter twin turbo V8 engine and 3 motors for a thrilling and excessive output of 986 horsepower.

The company describes the next one as “beautifully brutal.” The second Aston-Martin on this list is the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.  It hits a maximum speed of 211 mph, basically the same with the last 2 contenders so what’s different? Aside from the twin turbo V12 which delivers 715 horsepower, it’s hefty. The small size shouldn’t fool you. This car weighs close to 2 tons so it has a handicap unlike the previous Ferraris. And that exposed mesh grille just feels premium.

Ferrari 812 Superfast with its naturally aspirated engine 6.5 liter V-12 producing more than 800 horsepower. It’s able to reach 211 miles per hour top speed.

One of the lightest and extremely aerodynamic design is McLaren is 720S. According to manufacture it is able to reach top speed of 212 miles per hour.

They say great things come in small packages. The Ford GT reaches maximum speeds of 216 mph despite the small engine. The 2.9L V6 only delivers 550 HP but the result speaks for itself.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ with its naturally aspirated engine 6.5L V-12. 759 horsepower propels 0 to sixty in only 2.5 seconds all the way to 217mph.

Jumping to a 50 HP increment, the 2021 McLaren Speedtail is the roadrunner among the McLarens, reaching max speeds of an impressive 250mph.  The design is as cool-looking as the McLaren 765LT and has one of the most beautiful fronts in this list so far. The car has a small wheelbase height so I’d be careful not to damage this beauty.

We’ve finally arrived at the end of this list and the two cars to rule them all are the 2020 Bugatti Chiron and the subsequent model 2021 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport. If a list was made last year, the Bugatti is still undefeated in terms of max speed. Beating the old 261 mph record, the Super Sport now goes over 304 mph. Just imagine the horsepower needed to reach this speed.
