Let’s just pretend for a moment that we all had more money than Scrooge McDuck, plus milk baths, personal yachts, and a massive double decker bus that doubled as a food truck and served gourmet tacos to the polo team in your backyard every Tuesday evening. Life is good at the top of the totem pole, and from where the world’s elite sit, anything can be had for the right amount of money, including the fastest supercars ever made.
One of the big things on everyone’s agenda when they come into some money (or turn 16), is to go out and buy the biggest baddest hypercar on the market today. It’s elitist shopping at its very finest, and if you want to keep up with the damn Kardashians, or any other troop of financially over-endowed individuals, buying the fastest neck-snapping Ferrari out there is a great way to kick things off.
But despite all the changes that occur in the auto industry on an annual basis, there is one list that won’t see a whole lot of movement: the fastest production cars in existence. The need for speed has come a long way in the last couple of decades, and while the race to 300 miles per hour remains well underway, the engineering required to do so is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.
So in order to showcase what every billionaire yearns to possess, here are 10 of the fastest production cars on the planet today, excluding all vehicles that are tied for a particular position. According to TheSupercars.org, where the list first originated, vehicles that are not street legal are immediately disqualified, as well as concept cars and modified machines. This leaves us with 11 stock production supercars, each of which is ranked by its confirmed top speed, and not by horsepower, while theoretical top speeds that have not been proven are also disqualified.
