Best cars....Top 10 best and most expensive cars of 2020

Speed is one of the most important aspects of a sports car. This car becomes extremely fast and it also attracts massive attention and goes down in history. For this reason, companies that manufacture sports cars or hypercars, improve their flagships every year to hit the headlines, and make history. This is the list of cars built to be the fastest and succeeded in that.

10…:  Koenigsegg Regera

The production of this car is limited, it is a plug-in hybrid grand touring sports car which is manufactured by Swedish automotive manufacturer company Koenigsegg. This car was developed and designed to be a more best,  practical, luxurious, and grand touring alternative to the rest of Koenigsegg's lightweight sports car lineup; initially the Agera and currently the Jesko. The Regera has a reported total power output of 1,797 hp and an electronically limited top speed of 410 km/h (255 mph). It didn’t prove that speed but in 2019, the Regera broke the 0–400–0 km/h (0–249–0mph) acceleration record for a production car with a time of 31 seconds. While breaking the acceleration record set by its brother Agera RS, it topped out at400 km/h (248.5 mph). That record attempt also showed that it is capable of accelerating to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 300 km/h (186 mph) in 11 seconds, and 400 km/h (249 mph) in 23 seconds. Furthermore, its price is $ 1.9 M.

 Koenigsegg holds the 9th spot as well.

9…:  The Koenigsegg Agera R

This Swedish car is a mid-range car developed by Koenigsegg. It is a successor to the CCX. It is equipped with a twin-turbo V-8, which yields a little less power than some of the competition, but the car's lightweight makes up for a lot. With a peak power of 1115 hp, in 2011, the Agera R set a new world record for driving 0-300-0 km/h. It managed to clock 300 km/h in 14 seconds and stopped in 7 seconds. Also at the Gran Turismo 2012, Agera R hit 401.6 km/h (249.5 mph). When it comes to the classic acceleration stat, this beast can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. Moreover, it is priced at $ 1.6 M.

8…:   Bugatti Veyron

This is the slightly slower one. This mid-range sports car was designed and developed in Germany by the great company Volkswagen Group and manufactured by French automobile manufacturer Bugatti. This is the first version of the Veyron and the first car in the world to go beyond the 250 mph (402 km/h) barrier. When Bugatti launched it, it was the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car in the world. The $ 1.7 M Veyron utilized a quad-turbocharged, W16 engine to deliver 1000 hp to all four wheels. This car was had to be better then McLaren F1 and the Bugatti was best then it. German inspection officials recorded an average top speed at 408.4 km/h (253.8 mph) during test sessions on Volkswagen Group's private test track in 2005. Additionally, it can from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, to 200 in 7.3 seconds, and 300 in 16.7 seconds. The faster one is a Bugatti car too. Bugatti also developed a convertible version named Grand Sport Vitesse. This car is limited to 92 units only. In 2013, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse driven at the same private test track of Volkswagen became the fastest open-top sports car with a top speed of 408.8 km/h (254 mph). It is just as good as its brother at acceleration. It sprints to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and 200 km/h in 7.3 seconds. However, with a price tag of $ 2.2 M, it is way more expensive.

7…:  9ff GT9

The 9ff GT9 is a sports car based on the Porsche 911, built by German tuning company 9ff. The company stated that only 150 GT9s would be produced, and only 20 of those would have the most powerful engine. Prices were around $ 700 K and all of them were already sold by the time the car was launched in the market. Its engine, capable of producing 1120 hp, can propel the GT9 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 17 seconds. Furthermore, it hit a top speed of 409 km/h (254 mph).

6…:  SSC Ultimate Aero

The SSC Ultimate Aero is a mid-engined sports car that held the title of the fastest production car in the world from 2007 to 2010. The speed test was witnessed by the Guinness Records team and they certified the car for the top speed, which at that time was 412 km/h (256 mph). Packing a Twin Turbo V8 engine producing 1183 hp, it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds. When the car came out in 2007, its price was $ 740 K. At one point it was a tight competition between Ultimate Aero and Bugatti Veyron but that was a long time back. Not only Bugatti but many other cars such as Hennessey and Koenigsegg have beaten this car.

5…:     a) Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.

It is the open-top version of Venom GT and almost as fast as its brother. In 2016, GT Spyder became the unofficial fastest convertible car by recording a top speed of 427 km/h (265 mph). To be considered legitimate, record attempts usually require a run in each direction, and an average is taken to account for wind conditions but the Spyder’s run was in a single direction. Especially to qualify for Guinness World Records, a minimum of 30 cars are required to be produced. However, only 4 Spyders have been sold to date. This $ 1.3 M monster can also sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and 400 km/h in 18 seconds. So basically, I didn’t want to rank it the 6th due to its illegitimate record but I’m also sure that it is fast enough to be mentioned.

5…:  b) Bugatti Chiron ( 2016 model)

This is two seated mid-engine sports car made by the French automobile manufacturer Bugatti. And I’m talking about the 2016 version of Chiron, not the newest one. There are two records this car broke. The first one is the top speed and it is 420 km/h (261 mph). The second one is 0-400-0 km/h acceleration time and Chiron completed that in 41 seconds. Bugatti also mentioned that during the run, the car accelerated from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.4 seconds and to 200 (124 mph) in 6.1 seconds. In 2016 the first 200 cars were sold for $ 2.5 M but now a new version of Chiron is around $ 3 M.

4…:  Bugatti Veyron SuperSport

It was almost a tie between the standard Veyron and Ultimate Aero till the Veyron Super Sport’s arrival. An impressive 1,200 hp and a slew of aerodynamic improvements helped the SuperSport to a top speed of 431 km/h (268 mph), clocked at Volkswagen’s private test track. According to Guinness Book of World Records, the Bugatti team was successful in toppling the Ultimate Aero in 2010 and remained the fastest car in the world until 2017. Its run at the top was essentially unchallenged despite a small hiccup from the Hennessey taking the top spot for a month. It also hit 100 km/h in only 2.4 seconds and 200 km/h in 6.7 seconds. Nowadays it retails at $ 2 M.

3…:  Hennessey Venom GT

This is a high-performance sports car developed by Hennessey Performance Engineering. In 2014, Hennessey revealed a Lotus-based supercar with a twin-turbo V8 and 1200 hp. In 2014, with approval from the Kennedy Space Center, Hennessey recorded a top speed of 435 km/h (270 mph). Though the Guinness Book of World Records approved the run, it has received a fair bit of criticism. For one, most top speed records are taken from an average of two runs in opposite directions but Hennessey hit the record only in one direction. Some have questioned whether it deserves to be counted among production cars. To qualify Guinness, there must be at least 30 units produced of that model but Venom GT is limited to 13 units. However, there is an official record of this car set and that is accelerating to 300 km/h (186 mph) from a standstill. Venom GT hit that speed in only 13 seconds making it nearly a whole second faster than Agra R. During that run it also hit 100 km/h mark in 3 seconds. This monster costs $ 1.2 M these days.

2…:  Koenigsegg Agera RS

The Agera RS is an advanced version of the Agera R, implementing some of the new technology and features of the R and the S models. Its V8 engine has a power output of 1160 hp pushing the car to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. First record RS broke is 0-400-0 acceleration time and it completed that run in 36 seconds beating the standard Chiron by 4 seconds. The speed record was set in the U.S. where on a closed Nevada highway the Agera RS did an average speed of 447 km/h (278 mph).On the downhill run, wind-assisted, the Agera did 458 km/h (285 mph). Anyway, the record is 447 km/h, trumping the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s record finally in 2017. Thanks to its record braking stats Agera RS costs $ 2.5 M.Before unveiling the fastest car, here are some honorable mentions. SSC Tuatara: The car is the successor to the SSC Ultimate Aero and has a claimed top speed of 482 km/h (300 mph).Hennessey Venom F5: And this is the successor to the Venom GT with a claimed top speed of 484 km/h (301 mph).McLaren Speedtail: It allegedly maxes out at 403km/h (250 mph)but it is likely to prove that in 2020. Rimac C_Two:  According to the Croatian company Rimac, this EV hypercar can top out at 415 km/h (258 mph). Koenigsegg Jesko and Jesko Absolute: Both cars are claimed by the manufacturer to have a top speed above 483 km/h (300 mph).Specially Absolut, which is the high-speed version, might surpass 500 km/h (310mph) barrier.

1…:  Bugatti Chiron SuperSport 300+

In August 2019 Bugatti presented a limited-production high-performance variant of the Chiron called the Chiron Super Sport 300+. It did a top speed of 490 km/h (304 mph) and became the first car to break the 300 mph barrier, while most of the world was expecting the Koenigsegg to break the barrier first, Bugatti stole the thunder. Only 30 of these Quad Turbocharged W16 engines will be produced. Besides that Bugatti, the president had claimed that Bugatti will not prefer speed records and will focus on other aspects of the cars; which means that it may not be participating in any of the future races to the top. It is not only the fastest of this list but also the most expensive one priced at $ 3.7M. When it comes to acceleration, it has a claimed time of 2.1 seconds while achieving 100 km/h but it sounds possible considering how fast it is.

This was the list of top 10 fastest cars, this data was based on our personal research and top speed records measured.
