HENNESSEY VENOM F5 (301 MPH, CLAIMED)

Hennessey speed of 301MPH puts it at the top of the list and far much above its competitors. The engineering behind the design of Hennessey is astonishing as the car can move from a speed of 0 to 249 then back to 0 mph in less than 30 seconds. Its chassis is designed with Lotus Exige and is powered by a 1,600 hp, 7.4-liter twin turbo V8 engine.

KOENIGSEGG AGERA RS (278 MPH)

Koenigsegg Agera RS is the fastest car the world ever had but still cannot be ranked as the best car on this list. The specifications of its bitter rivals the likes of Hennessey venom F5 are better than what it has to offer. However, Koenigsegg Agera RS still remains the speed king. 

HENNESSEY VENOM GT (270 MPH)
