The Hennessey Venom F5 is the fastest car in the world right now and can touch 305 MPH. Its chassis is made out of a light carbon fibre material making the car weigh only 2,950 pounds.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS has an impressive spec sheet and did manage to touch a top speed of 301 MPH in some of its test trials. Its average high speed came to 277.87 MPH when tested between Las Vegas and Pahrump on the Route 160’s 11 mile stretch.

Hennessey Venom GT: 270 MPH

The Henessey Venom GT is a hand-made car which might lead to some of the readers disputing its position on this list of production cars. However, the fact remains that at a top speed of 270 MPH, the GT is among the fastest cars on the road right now. The Venom Series of the Hennessey gets its design from the much hailed Lotus Elise, which explains the charm of these cars.

Bugatti Chiron: 261 MPH
