Today we enter the world of seven-figure “hypercars” that are far too fast and exclusive for the average driver. With advanced technology like performance gas-electric systems and lightweight engineering, today’s carmakers continue to push the envelope of speed. These 10 models were chosen for our “world’s fastest” list as they are all street-legal in the countries where they have been sold and attain their top speeds using the same equipment delivered to customers. If you think the Bugatti Veyron is the world’s fastest car, read on to find out which hypercars are even faster!
The 918 Spyder sits far atop the Porsche range with a base price of more than $1 million - were they not sold out altogether. A sophisticated gas-electric hybrid system combines a 4.6-liter V-8 engine with dual electric motors for 887 peak horsepower. The 918 is also highly efficient with the ability operate in fully electric mode for limited distances, even at highway speeds, and earns around 78 combined mpg in the European test cycle.
