Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

Dauer 962 – 404.6km/h

Road-go­ing Le Mans racer’s top speed ver­i­fied in 1998.

Call­away Sledge­ham­mer – 410km/h

Lin­gen­fel­ter-built 6.0-litre twin-turbo V8 pro­duced 670kW/1046Nm.

SSC Ul­ti­mate Aero – 412.3km/h

Briefly the fastest car in the world, un­til the Vey­ron Su­per Sport ar­rived.

Bu­gatti Ch­i­ron – 420km/h*

Can go faster, will go faster, but by how much? Can it top 450km/h?

Bu­gatti Vey­ron SS – 431.07km/h

Still the daddy, set­ting its of­fi­cial twoway record at Ehra-Lessien in 2010.

Hen­nessey Venom GT – 435.31km/h

Not an of­fi­cial record as speed is set in one di­rec­tion only, but plenty fast for us.
