We see them all the time racing around the track during the Formula One season and zooming across our screens in the latest blockbuster films, and for the most of us, unfortunately this is the only way we get to experience the fastest cars in the world! One reason for this is that here in the UK we can legally only drive at up to 70mph on our roads so what is the actual point? Oh and plus the fact that they all come with an extremely large price tag!

With our ever advancing technology, the spec lists for every new supercar that is produced are just getting more and more impressive! A supercar by definition is a “high performance sports car”, meaning there are a number of different characteristics which makes a car fall under this “supercar” label. But let’s be honest, the first question that would pop into most of our heads would be, “how fast can it go?”

Below is a list of the fastest cars in the world to date, all of which can legally hold a license plate, with both their price tag and top speed:

  1. Hennessey Venom GT – PRICE TAG: $1.2millionbugatti

TOP SPEED: 270mph

  1. Bugatti Chiron – PRICE TAG: $2,660,000

TOP SPEED: 261+mph

  1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – PRICE TAG: $1.7million

TOP SPEED: 268mph

  1. SSC Ultimate Aero – PRICE TAG: $650,000
