These Are the Fastest Production Cars on Sale Right Now

Hitting 200 mph is no sweat for these cars

More cars than ever are surpassing the 200-mph mark, and they come in many different flavors. Here, we've gathered today's ten fastest production cars based on top speed.

Before we begin: What really makes a production car? That's up for debate, but for our purposes, we're going to say that the company that makes the vehicle has to deliver at least 50 total cars a year. That means super-niche, high profile metal like Pagani's Huayra BC and Koenigsegg's Regera don't make the cut. Concept cars like the Lamborghini Sian that you're never going to see on the road don't count, either. Sorry, not sorry. Without further ado, keep reading to learn about the fastest production cars on sale right now.


2019 McLaren Senna: 208 MPH

It's sort of hard to believe the super light, super powerful McLaren Senna is the slowest car on this list, but that goes to show just how far the world of fast road-legal cars has moved as of late. Although street legal, the Senna is a track day car, and few tracks have straights long enough to break 200 mph. We're willing to bet the Senna could go faster, but since it's not made for that, who cares?


2020 Ferrari F8 Tributo: 211 MPH

Ferrari is essentially synonymous with high performance, from their F1 efforts to their road cars. Every model in Ferrari's current range will hit at least 199 mph. But the F8 Tributo, a mid-engine V-8 sports car designed to pay homage to the V-8 itself, is a little bit faster with a top speed of 211 mph. Some think it will be the last mid-engine Ferrari to come without some form of hybrid assistance thanks to ever-tightening fuel restrictions. We aren't sure, but regardless, this supercar is special in its own right.


2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera: 211 MPH

The DBS is a proper super-grand-tourer. With a 715 hp, twin-turbo V-12 under the bonnet… erm, sorry, hood… this thing tops out at a properly fast 211 mph. It has nearly the same amount of power as the F8, and it can achieve the same top speed enough though it weighs more than two tons. That by itself is truly impressive.


2019 Ferrari 812 Superfast: 211 MPH

Ah, the front-mid-engine Ferrari V-12. An icon of the automotive world and, as it turns out, a brutally fast one, too. The "8" in the 812's name is short for 800 hp and the "12" stands for the number of cylinders. With more than 800 prancing stallions on tap and a name like that, you'd almost expect a top speed of over 200 mph. Luckily, this Ferrari delivers.


2020 McLaren 720S: 212 MPH

Slightly edging out the 812 is McLaren's current Super Series flagship: the 720S coupe. It's nearly 100 hp power deficit to the Ferrari is made up for by its lightweight construction and slick aero. McLaren says it will hit 212 mph, but do some googling and you'll probably find a stock 720S doing a little bit more than that. We appreciate the humility, though.


2020 Ford GT: 216 MPH

Currently the only American car on sale that will do more than 200 mph, the Ford GT also has the smallest engine and the least power of any car here—a 2.9-liter V-6 that makes 550 hp. That's still enough to rocket the lightweight supercar to 216 mph.


2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: 217 MPH

The most extreme version of the Aventador to date, and likely the last, the Aventador SVJ is a beast in every sense of the word. It's 6.5-liter V-12 makes 759 hp and rockets the big Lambo from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds and on to a top speed well beyond the limits of any road save for an empty autobahn.


2021 McLaren Speedtail: 250 MPH

The McLaren Speedtail is currently on its way to production, but some outlets have already verified its top speed claim, and so has McLaren. It's also the only car on this list that will seat more than two, since it evokes the legendary McLaren F1's three-seat layout that puts the driver in the middle. That experience and its beautiful teardrop shape make it just about worth its $2.2 million price tag.


2020 Bugatti Chiron: 261 MPH

The Chiron is the follow-up to the engineering exercise that was the Veyron. It's even more powerful—with nearly 1,500 hp coming from its incredible 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W-16. Not only is it lush with power, it's even better to drive than the Veyron, and more luxurious than its predecessor. It's also a fair bit more expensive. Anyone have a spare $3 million lying around?


2021 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+: 304 MPH

We weren't going to write this list without including the fastest production car ever and the only one to crack the mythical 300 mph barrier. Bugatti has been in the business of setting insane speed records since 2008 when the Veyron dethroned the McLaren F1 as the fastest car ever made. Late last year, they made the old Veyron's top speed of 254 mph look like walking pace, really. The benchmark for fast road-legal cars has been set once again by Bugatti, and it's a lofty 304 mph.
