With its 4.4-liter eight-cylinder engine with 650 hp.car is capable of at the limit to squeeze 362 km / h.

The limiting speed is 375 km / h. The cost is 1.22 million dollars. One of the few Danish hyperkars is also one of the fastest cars. The Zenvo ST1, assembled in Zealand, shows the height of the Danish engineering skill, as the car combines a 6.8-liter V8 engine with a supercharger and turbocharger, with 1205 hp.
ST1 is able to reach 375 km per hour in the presence of an impeccable road, but it is important to note that its maximum speed is limited by electronics. Without digital nannies on board, ST1 can be even faster. It is released in 15-unit circulation and it is unlikely you will see it on Russian roads.
7. McLaren F1 - 386 km / h

Lead Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson swept the CCX and very praised the car, but he did not like the lack of downforce. Clarkson said that it was to blame for the lack of a rear spoiler. About this later, said the pilot of the Top Gear Stig, who crashed the CCX and suggested that the car would be more stable with the rear spoiler. In 2006, Koenigsegg presented a variant of its supercar with an optional rear spoiler made of carbon fiber. However, with it the speed drops to 370 km / h.
Forbes Magazine has included the CCX in the list of the most beautiful cars in the world.

At motorists the design has caused ambiguous reaction: in responses there is both admiration for beauty of cars, and criticism of "ugly headlights" and too elongated body.
One of the main differences from the conventional 911 is the location of the four-liter Twin Turbo engine with 1120 hp. For all 911 models in the history of Porsche( with the exception of the Porsche 911 GT1), the engine is at the rear, while the GT9 is a mid-engine for better weight distribution.
4. SSC Ultimate Aero - 430 km / h
The theoretically achievable speed is 430 km / h. It is offered for 655 thousand dollars. The American from Shelby SuperCars( SSC) was the king of the speed auto world from 2007 to 2010, surpassing the version of Super Sport from Veyron. He even got into the Guinness Book of Records in 2007 with an astonishing 412 km / h.
The 6.3-liter twin turbo V8 engine with 1287 horsepower helped to achieve this record. The driver does not have electronic assistants to help control this power. So the car promises either a delightful experience for those who have a lot of driving experience, or almost true death for those who do not have such experience.

It has an 8-liter Quad Turbo W16 engine rated at 1200 hp, as well as numerous aerodynamic changes designed to help win a few extra kilometers per hour.
The cost of this luxury car is 2.4 million dollars and despite such a high price, the demand for cars in the car market is very high.
2. Hennessey Venom GT - 435 km / h
The price is 1 million dollars.
In the tests of 2014, held in the territory of the Kennedy Space Center, the coupe managed to accelerate up to 435 km / h in a single arrival.

This luxury two-seater was developed after the success of the Bugatti Veyron, which is considered one of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world. The Bugatti Chiron is equipped with a 16-cylinder engine and its 1500 horsepower rides from 0 to 100 kilometers in 2.5 seconds.
Although the Chiron is built like a racing car, you do not need to be a professional to manage it. The car is designed to automatically adjust the ride as the speed increases or decreases, which ensures optimum performance.
On the horizon also loomed cars that are ready to compete for the right to be called the fastest car in the world. So, SSC hopes to regain the title of "the fastest car in the world" with its challenger Tuatara( 1350 horsepower under the hood and 443 km / h in theory).And Koenigsegg claims that the supercar One: 1 "on the shoulder" to overcome the bar at 430 km / h. In 2016, when trying to set a record when passing a circle on the German race track, the Nürburgring One: 1 got into an accident, crashing into a protective fence. The pilot did not suffer much, which can not be said about the car. This is one of the most expensive accidents at the Nurburgring.
