Fastest Production Car

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is an 840 horsepower, 770 pound-feet of torque street racing machine that hits 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and the quarter mile in 9.56 seconds. It is the fastest production car in the world. Only 3,300 will be built and sold in North America.  The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is an 840 horsepower, 770 pound-feet of torque street racing machine that hits 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and the quarter mile in 9.56 seconds.

Comparing claimed speeds of the fastest production cars in the world, especially in historical cases, is difficult as there is no standardized method for determining the top speed and no central authority to verify any such claims. Examples of the difficulties faced were shown up in the dispute between Bugatti and Hennessey over which car was the world’s fastest.

In 2014, a Hennessey Venom GT was recorded as exceeding 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h), but as the run was in one direction only, and only 12 cars (+ 1 prototype) were ever made and thus it does not qualify under the Guinness Book of Records or this list’s criteria as the world’s fastest production car. Guinness accepted it as production car, however.

This is a list of the world’s record-breaking top speeds achieved by a street-legal production car (as opposed to concept cars or modified cars). For the purposes of this list eligible cars are defined in the lists rules. This list uses the same definition as the List of automotive superlatives for the sake of consistency and because the term production car is otherwise undefined. The Benz Velo, as the first production car, is an exception.

A track car ill-disguised as a road car, the Viper SRT10 ACR is powered by an 8.4 liter V10 that makes 600 bhp. A race-ready carbon fiber front splitter, rear wing, and adjustable racing shocks all add to the car’s track prowess, making it the fastest American car to ever lap the ‘Ring. Unfortunately, we’ll probably never see how fast the current ACR laps this track.

Thanks to a radical new active aerodynamic system and 640 horsepower, the Lamborghini Huracán Performante is the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring. It’s 28 seconds quicker than a standard Huracan, which is by no means, a slow car. Lamborghini’s even got the data to back up this astonishing time.

Thanks to the universal human drive to go further, go faster, and never settle, our four-wheeled vehicles have come a long way in the 120 years since the Benz Velo set the first automotive land speed record at 12 mph. More than just an all-consuming struggle for bragging rights, however, the quest to build ever-speedier road cars winds up creating technical innovations that help advance the entire transportation industry — radial tires and fuel-injection, for example. Each of the cars on GAYOT’s list of the Top 10 Fastest Cars in production for 2017 is technically available to the public, with at least twenty examples built, and each is street legal in its intended market. Take a look at the entire list to find out which cars are leading the current crop of speedsters.

The news came in a letter from the National Hot Rod Association. A prototype of the new Dodge Demon had set an all-time dragstrip record, hitting 140 at the end of the quarter mile in just 9.65 seconds. Oh, and the NHRA added, it was banning the new muscle car from production before the first model officially rolled off the production line.

Similarly to the GT-R NISMO, the LFA Nürburgring Package is a special edition, track-focused machine. Additions include 10 extra hp–bringing its V10’s total output to 562–a bigger front splitter, a bigger spoiler, and small side fins. It’s not the fastest street car around the Nurburgring, but it might be the sweetest sounding.

Foot flat to the floor a driver will experience 1.3 Gs of force throwing them back into the car’s sport seat — and in the fastest version there will be only one seat, for the driver, though as this four-wheeled beast is street legal, buyers can opt for a passenger seat and even a backseat if they want to haul around family and friends in high-speed splendor.

Tesla’s Model S was already the fastest four-door sedan in the world. In “Ludicrous Mode,” it had the speediest zero-to 60 jump of any car under $200,000. But this, apparently, wasn’t ludicrous enough.

For the first time, Musk said, “the fastest car in the world, of any kind, is electric. In the future, people are really going to look at gasoline cars in the same way we look at steam engines today: They’re quaint, but it’s not really how you get around.”

“This is a car unlike anything we’ve ever done,” Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, said as he reveled the car before about 500 fans and members of the media ahead of the New York International Auto Show. “This car, for the people who race it, who build it and develop it will share that pride across more than a track. Demon is another halo that will transcend a core group of enthusiasts.”

The current Guinness World Records title holder, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, was certified for the average top speed achieved on a two-way run, registering 431 km/h (268 mph). Bugatti made 5 Veyrons named the World Record Edition out of the initial production run of 30 Super Sports, all of which would be able to achieve this speed if the limiter was removed. Bugatti did not sell any with the limiter removed. Initially, when challenged by Hennessey, Guinness decided the Bugatti was ineligible because the test car was deemed as being modified. Bugatti sought a review of the decision and Guinness, after a review by a panel of experts, considered removing the limiter was not a modification and thereby making the car eligible for their publication.

In the past, cars were judged heavily by their 0-60 mph sprints, their quater-mile times and their top speeds. Those figures are still important, but a Nürburgring lap time is the ultimate metric. Why? This German circuit is arguably the most difficult in the world. All video verified, here are ten of the fastest cars to ever lap the ‘Ring. For now.

For four years, the Porsche 918 Spyder held the Nürburgring production car lap record, before being dethroned by the Huracan Performante. The 918’s blistering time was a result of an 887-hp hybrid drivetrain, with an electric motor on the front axle, providing incredible grip.

Speaking of tires, those black donuts often don’t get the respect they deserve, but they may be the real key to ensuring the 4,200-pound Demon delivers on the promise of that massive drivetrain. They’re as big as anything put on a production car, the wheels measuring 18 by 11 inches and the tires a sticky 315/40R15 Nitto design, the first-ever street-legal cheaters — just short of full track slicks.
