Fastest Street-Legal Cars Of The Decade


Aj Caldwell: It’s a great
time to be a car enthusiast. Modern times have brought us the mind-boggling performance
of electric vehicles and some updates to some old favorites. Speed records have been
broken again and again as new technology fuels
automakers’ competition for the title of fastest car. So, as the 2010s near an end, here are the 10 fastest street-legal cars of the past decade. Coming in at the No.
10 spot is a car brand most people haven’t heard of. Noble is a boutique British automaker known to engineer some real track beast. The Noble M600 soars to
a top speed of 225 mph from a 650-horsepower Yamaha V8 engine. Pagani is a popular car brand
among high-end collectors. Its offerings are designed to be true pieces of art on wheels. But the Huayra doesn’t just look good; it’s seriously fast. Engineers tuned a
turbocharged Mercedes AMG V12 to push out 700 horses,
consequently giving the Huayra a staggering top speed of 230 mph. Zenvo didn’t hit the car scene until 2008 but gained a lot of attention by producing a 1,163-horsepower prototype
right out the gate. A few years later, that prototype became the Zenvo TS1. Its 5.8-liter V8 with twin superchargers propel it to 233 mph. At No. 7 on the list, we
have our first hybrid. Swedish automaker Koenigsegg has produced some of the most impressive supercars since it started in 1994, one of them being the Regera. The most eye-catching feature is Autoskin, but the Regera is still
all about performance. It combines three electric motors with the 5-liter twin-turbo V8
to make 1,500 horsepower, pushing the Regera to an
electronically limited top speed of 250 mph. Not to be confused with the
previously mentioned Regera is another entry from
Koenigsegg, the Agera R. It’s a limited-run supercar with multiple acceleration records, one of them being the
fastest 0-to-200 mph time, at 17.68 seconds. The 1,140-horsepower
engine runs on biofuel and pushes the car to 260 mph. Bugatti is one of the most
recognizable supercar brands, and for good reason. Its cars not only push
the limits of automobiles, but they’re also beautifully
handcrafted machines. Its famous W16 engine is a
quad-turbocharged monster, making 1,500 horsepower. Placed inside the Chiron, it launches the supercar to 261 mph. But there’s plenty more power after that, as it’s capped with an electronic limiter. Beating Bugatti is another Bugatti. The Veyron Super Sport
16.4 set the world record for fastest production car with a top speed of 267.857 mph, though the production version
was electronically limited to 258 mph. The world record shows just how powerful its 1,200-horsepower engine really is. Hennessey Performance Engineering
is a car-tuning company that specializes in modifying
sports cars and supercars. But the Venom GT is a car of its own. Though it’s based off
the Lotus Exige platform, the engineering is all Hennessey. The Venom GT broke Bugatti’s
world record in 2014 with a top speed of 270.49 mph. Building off the success of the Agera R, Koenigsegg introduced
the Agera RS in 2017. It went on to set the world record for fastest production car with a top speed of 277.87 mph. Though it has the same
5-liter twin-turbocharged V8, it makes 1,350 horsepower,
210 more than its predecessor. The owners of each of
the 25 Agera RS vehicles worked with Koenigsegg to
personalize every detail, including color, stitching, power output, and even nicknaming the
car, so no two are alike. Taking the No. 1 spot is
the Bugatti Chiron…again. This time, with a modified
version that’s longer, more aerodynamic, and clearly doesn’t have the electronic limiter. It’s still technically a
preproduction prototype, but it set the world
record for fastest supercar with a top speed of 304.77 mph in September of 2019. It’s the first car to
break the 300-mph barrier, a feat manufacturers have
been trying to achieve with production cars for years. So, there you have it. The fastest street-legal
cars of the decade. The 2010s brought us 300 mph; we can only imagine what
the next decade will bring. From a V8 twin-turbocharged
engine, a 1,200, I…what? [laughs] Cameraman: From a V8 twin turbocharged…

  1. THE 300 mph speed by BUGATTI ISNT OFFICIAL!!!! I hate that the stat is being used. Shit a school bus can go that speed if you drop it from the top of our atmosphere. Official speeds are set by running the same length of road both ways and averaging the speed from those runs…. the bus is gonna have a lot harder time making that speed going upward same with Bugatti going to the opposite way of that track. Dislike

  2. Nobody with any sense of common sense wouldn't put the 1200hp Veyron SS ahead of the 1500hp Chiron in pure top speed. 261mph is only the electronically limited top speed of the Chiron.

  3. Except that the bugatti sport doesn't count since they only drove one way and therefore could have gone downhill or with wind in the back.

  4. Nice video bro, tho it's sad even if you were to own one, you could never drive it that fast in any street.

  5. Take down this video, learn the cars, do your research correctly, and then make a new video

  6. Y'all are like The Verge for car enthusiast. A 10 year old can name faster cars than these

  7. The one who made the thumbnail did a poor job. The tires only have sidewalls 🤦

  8. Remind me again as to why am I watching this when i can't even afford the Slowest Street-Legal Cars Of The Decade?

  9. @BusinessInsider Why are only the mph relevant for you? Please consider the kmh… 😑

  10. see my thing is that this cars are all stunning and dope as shit but if you were to own one, the only time you would ever go to its speed limits would be on the track. but im guessing that if you were to own one of this cars you'd be buying it for the luxury and not to be taking it to the limit. idk thats my opinion on stupidly fast cars.

  11. I'm not sure what was worse, the PC build video by The Verge or this video…..

    ….. Actually no, The Verge video was much worse. Not that this vid was any better.

  12. cutted spring (they are low) are kinda bad out race tracks the Buggati seeme to have a okay one though

  13. Next time find a car guy not a gay dude to talk about cars. Clearly he didn't know his shit.

  14. I know Rimac C2 is not out yet but 0-60 in 1.85 sec deserves to be on fastest car list.

  15. I can't wait to see the day when electric cars replace all engine cars so that those assholes driving loud cars will never be able to wake up everyone at night.

  16. Koniggseg regera of a clients 0-400 km/h worldrecord buchered the Chiron speed record specialy prepraid for that……………
    I'm a joke to you 😐
    Proof 👉https://youtu.be/E6aHQD1UqoQ

    And Christian K said that this is not even the fastest car they lol
    Know you shit next time mate

  17. Everything anyone does in any walk of life is done better by Europeans and it's the same with cars – Jeremy Clarkson

  18. This is such an American thing to do taking only "Top speed" into consideration lol…

  19. Me watching the video : woah
    My moms slipper: beating all records and landing spot on my face

  20. You can’t drive them on the roads, 700 hp, Tesla beats these with a few batteries!

  21. Those are all good but my buddy has a turbo swapped civic that can beat them all….😎😂😂😂

  22. The difference between the number one gong and measly fourth place is .7986 miles per hour and is limited by its electronics 😂

  23. Faster, means higher risk to lose control. In fact, best speed for best safety is 80 KM/Hrs. Higher than that, higher risk for safety. Lower than that, indeed better control of safety, but waste of time.

  24. None of them affordable by me till today.But InshaAllah someone will be next

  25. Might want to do a little research next time. This is really sad to watch! 🤦‍♀️
