Top 10 world’s fastest road cars 2016

“Top 10 world’s fastest road cars 2016 – How fast can it go?”

There are many ways to measure automotive excellence, but top speed is the one everybody secretly cares about the most. These 10 fastest road cars are more than just fun, though, they’re the fastest production cars in the world. The emphasis here is on “production;” racers and one-off custom jobs need not apply. We also tried to limit the selections to cars whose claimed top speeds have been generally recognized as legitimate by the automotive media and sanctioning groups.

1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (268mph)

This version of the original Veyron still has the same 8.0 litre, 16 cylinder engine but upgrades have pushed it into the record books
