Currently, the world's fastest production car is the SSC Tuatara with a formally recognised top speed of 316.11mph. The previous record mark of 277.9mph set by the Koenigsegg Agera RS in 2017 was broken by SSC Tuatara.
Many years, Engineers and racing drivers have targeted automotive speed records and there is no one that confers the title of ‘fastest car in the world’.
As vehicle ranges widened and technology advanced, the chase of the world’s fastest production car title increased. Competitors include Mercedes and Jaguar, while Porsche and Ferrari have had a very big intra brand competition lasting more than 50 years.
In recent years, we have seen McLaren and Bugatti both stake a claim, small scale competitors often make bluff claims of record attempts to crush deposits out of would-be buyers but for every 2,500bhp Dagger GT and Devel Sixteen there is an SSC Tuatara or a Hennessy Venom GT cars that have put their money where their mouth is.
The Swedish car's record was also broken by SSC Tuatara soon after that, it may not hold onto it for long as the 1,578bhp Koenigsegg Jesko and all-new 1,600bhp Hennessey Venom F5 will be acting very fast for the record.
