More about the Fastest Car in the World
The fastest cars in the world are definitely what you would call supercars with top speeds well over 200 miles per hour (321 km/h). They are all available for consumers to buy. The measurement of the car’s acceleration from 0 to 62 mph is equivalent to 0 to 100 km/h.
There are no public roads in the world where you’re allowed to drive that fast but to the owners of these cars, the knowledge that they could is often more than enough. The top speed on a public road is held by the Koenigsegg Agera RS at 284 miles per hour.
One important thing to note about top speeds is the fact that many of the top speeds are claimed by the manufacturers and not tested on public roads.
