When looking at the all-time fastest automobiles we do not want to go for the obvious, but those that have the x-factor, so this list might be a little different to what you have seen before. The first car that tops the list has to be the Ultima GTR, which is not a production model but a kit car. What is so special about this is how cheap it is compared to the big supercars on the market, and how it has been able to smash a few records in the process.
OK, so we know that it does not have the top speed to beat the Bugatti Veyron, but its 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds does. The price for the GTR is $27,955.00, but there are a number of optional extras for you to choose from here. Next up has to be the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which as we know is still the fastest production car. The SS is so much heavier, and more expensive than the GTR and could not be further apart.
The Ariel Atom again is not what you would call a top ten fastest car, but it is still one of the fastest when it comes to acceleration, which is 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds. You need to be fit to drive this vehicle though, as we have seen on Top Gear the amount of G-force that you are subjected to. Again, this car is much cheaper than the usual suspects, so ideal for those who have a limited budget, but loves speed.
You cannot have a list without including the Enzo Ferrari, its 221mph top speed is now overshadowed but the Veyron, Zonda etc, but when it comes to looks it has to be at the top of the list. When you look head on you will think that it is just an overgrown F1 car, you will know what we mean if you are a fan of the sport. This does not come as a surprise though, as a huge amount of Formula One technology was used when designing the Enzo, it is for this reason why the car can now fetch over $1,000,000 at auction.
No list can be complete without the McLaren F1, which first went into production in 1992. The technology used was ahead of its time, but is now showing its age. Having said that, put it on a track and the car will show most modern supercars a thing or two about speed and handling. If you were to take the rev limiter off, the McLaren F1 could reach a top speed of 240 mph — not bad for a car that is almost 20 years old.
Well there is our list of what we think are the best fastest automobiles, but would you agree?
