Six cars that redefined fast
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.
