Even if you know you won’t ever get the chance to get behind the wheel of a hypercar, it is easy to pass hours on end daydreaming about these exceptional vehicles. We all want to drive one of these amazing cars and experience the thrill of going as fast as possible. Engineers are working hard to make the latest cars go faster than ever before using the latest technology including carbon-fiber and ultralight materials, aerodynamic design, and supercharged engines. Here are the fastest cars in the world.
25. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
Top speed 205 mph/563 hp
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S can reach 205 mph, and that’s the lowest speed on this list. Hitting over 200 miles per hour is nothing to laugh at, especially in a sexy and nimble car like the Vantage S. This may be the smallest model from the automaker, but that just means that upgrading the engine allowed for truly dramatic power.
The 5.9-liter V12 combines with a compact package to deliver 563 horsepower plus 457 pound-feet of torque. You can also choose from a 7-speed manual transmission and a 7-speed automatic, a rare option in the world of sports cars. The production and availability for this model were definitely limited, with only 100 units sold in the United States. Therefore, even if you can afford it, you aren’t guaranteed to be able to buy this supercar. The V12 Vantage also does well, reaching 190 mph, although it isn’t quick enough to earn a spot on this list.
