Fastest Street-Legal Cars Of The Decade

November 5, 2019


Aj Caldwell: It’s a great
time to be a car enthusiast. Modern times have brought us the mind-boggling performance
of electric vehicles and some updates to some old favorites. Speed records have been
broken again and again as new technology fuels
automakers’ competition for the title of fastest car. So, as the 2010s near an end, here are the 10 fastest street-legal cars of the past decade. Coming in at the No.
10 spot is a car brand most people haven’t heard of. Noble is a boutique British automaker known to engineer some real track beast. The Noble M600 soars to
a top speed of 225 mph from a 650-horsepower Yamaha V8 engine. Pagani is a popular car brand
among high-end collectors. Its offerings are designed to be true pieces of art on wheels. But the Huayra doesn’t just look good; it’s seriously fast. Engineers tuned a
turbocharged Mercedes AMG V12 to push out 700 horses,
consequently giving the Huayra a staggering top speed of 230 mph. Zenvo didn’t hit the car scene until 2008 but gained a lot of attention by producing a 1,163-horsepower prototype
right out the gate. A few years later, that prototype became the Zenvo TS1. Its 5.8-liter V8 with twin superchargers propel it to 233 mph. At No. 7 on the list, we
have our first hybrid. Swedish automaker Koenigsegg has produced some of the most impressive supercars since it started in 1994, one of them being the Regera. The most eye-catching feature is Autoskin, but the Regera is still
all about performance. It combines three electric motors with the 5-liter twin-turbo V8
to make 1,500 horsepower, pushing the Regera to an
electronically limited top speed of 250 mph. Not to be confused with the
previously mentioned Regera is another entry from
Koenigsegg, the Agera R. It’s a limited-run supercar with multiple acceleration records, one of them being the
fastest 0-to-200 mph time, at 17.68 seconds. The 1,140-horsepower
engine runs on biofuel and pushes the car to 260 mph. Bugatti is one of the most
recognizable supercar brands, and for good reason. Its cars not only push
the limits of automobiles, but they’re also beautifully
handcrafted machines. Its famous W16 engine is a
quad-turbocharged monster, making 1,500 horsepower. Placed inside the Chiron, it launches the supercar to 261 mph. But there’s plenty more power after that, as it’s capped with an electronic limiter. Beating Bugatti is another Bugatti. The Veyron Super Sport
16.4 set the world record for fastest production car with a top speed of 267.857 mph, though the production version
was electronically limited to 258 mph. The world record shows just how powerful its 1,200-horsepower engine really is. Hennessey Performance Engineering
is a car-tuning company that specializes in modifying
sports cars and supercars. But the Venom GT is a car of its own. Though it’s based off
the Lotus Exige platform, the engineering is all Hennessey. The Venom GT broke Bugatti’s
world record in 2014 with a top speed of 270.49 mph. Building off the success of the Agera R, Koenigsegg introduced
the Agera RS in 2017. It went on to set the world record for fastest production car with a top speed of 277.87 mph. Though it has the same
5-liter twin-turbocharged V8, it makes 1,350 horsepower,
210 more than its predecessor. The owners of each of
the 25 Agera RS vehicles worked with Koenigsegg to
personalize every detail, including color, stitching, power output, and even nicknaming the
car, so no two are alike. Taking the No. 1 spot is
the Bugatti Chiron…again. This time, with a modified
version that’s longer, more aerodynamic, and clearly doesn’t have the electronic limiter. It’s still technically a
preproduction prototype, but it set the world
record for fastest supercar with a top speed of 304.77 mph in September of 2019. It’s the first car to
break the 300-mph barrier, a feat manufacturers have
been trying to achieve with production cars for years. So, there you have it. The fastest street-legal
cars of the decade. The 2010s brought us 300 mph; we can only imagine what
the next decade will bring. From a V8 twin-turbocharged
engine, a 1,200, I…what? [laughs] Cameraman: From a V8 twin turbocharged…

    I would say the ford GT that hit 300MPH is the first regular car to hit 300MPH. Because the chiron that was used isn't in production yet so what makes it any different then the ford GT so The koenigsegg is still the fastest production car. If they put it into production as the chiron super sport and then break the record then sure they're the fastest.
