Ever since the first automobile was dutifully trudged out into the public eye, the public has been stricken with an incredible need for speed. There is no car too fast, no race too short for the consumers and sports enthusiasts of the world to cry out to the high heavens for more. In a recent article by the very aptly-named SpeedVegas, the top 10 fastest supercars of 2018 have been revealed. While SpeedVegas took lengthy extremes and meticulous care to spell out exactly what it is that made these cars so spectacular, this list simmers all of these variables down into raw speed and defining characteristics.
- 1. HENNESSEY VENOM F5: 301 MPH
Breaking 300 MPH is just ridiculous. Yet, the Venom F5 does just that and in turn captures the crown for 2018. The bar has truly been set high.
- Koenigsegg RS: 278 MPH
The first of two Koenigsegg models on this list, the RS reaches just shy of 280 MPH. With such a strong showing this year, it can be supposed that a chart topper in 2019 may be forthcoming.
- Hennessey Venom GT
Hitting the list with a max speed of 270MPH, the Hennessey Venom GT has proven its worth with every repetition. Outstripping its peers by mere MPH, the future may hold a repeat win for the Venom GT.
- Bugatti Chiron
Sleeping in your car might get you woken up by the police. It is fortunate for all that wake up in their new Bugatti that they will be able to quickly peel out at speeds of up to 261 MPH if they wish.
- Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
268 MPH is nothing to sneeze at. It is but 3 MPH away from the current champion, and that is scarcely a difference. Be on the lookout for this model.
- SCC Ultimate Aero
The term “Aero” brings to mind a feeling of weightlessness, of being able to flit above the ground like a gull searching for fish. At 256 MPH, this SCC model appears ready to bring that feeling.
- Tesla Roadster
Tesla was a brilliant man. It comes as a surprise to none that a design of his name appears on this list, clocking an unverfied 250MPH.
- Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
Never underestimate the power of a Turbo engine, much less two of them. At 248 MPH, this Saleen S7 has earned its spot on this list without question.
- Koenigsegg CCR
Europe has long been a purveyor of quality cars. This Koenigsegg CCR can reach speeds of up to 242 MPH, satisfying the thrill-seeking impulses of only the wildest of the bunch.
- Mclaren F1
Hold up, wait a minute. The Mclaren deserves respect. Though it is far from the fastest supercar in the world, 241 MPH is still a zoo’s worth of cheetahs and certainly nothing to sneeze at.
