1. Koenigsegg Agera R
260 mph, 0-60 in 2.8 secs. 5.0-liter V8 Engine with twin turbo’s, housing 1099 hp. Base price is $1,600,000. If you’re into snow sports, the Agera R can be fitted with a Ski Box as well as winter tires, not that I would take one on a ski trip or anything like that. While the Agera R has a massive theoretical top speed, the current tested top speed is 260 mph. Expect this snow car to be the Bugatti’s arch enemy for the next 5 years.
2. SSC Ultimate Aero
257 mph, 0-60 in 2.7 secs. Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400. Tested in March 2007 by Guinness World Records, The SSC Ultimate Aero was the fastest car in the world from March 2007 to July 2010. On March 2011, the Koenigsegg Agera R also surpassed it, forcing this American made car to the our 2nd spot.
3. Koenigsegg CCX:
245 mph, 0-60 in 3.2 secs. 90 Degree V8 Engine 806 hp, base price is $545,568. Made in Sweden, it is the older brother of the Agera R, only losing to 4 other supercars in the world.
4. McLaren F1:
240 mph, 0-60 in 3.2 secs. BMW S70/2 60 Degree V12 Engine with 627 hp, base price is $970,000. The fastest car in the 20th century with doors that looks like bat wings. Maybe Batman needs to order one and paint it black
5. Noble M600:
223 mph, 0-60 in 3.7 secs. Twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 Engine with 650 hp. Base price is $330,000. The Noble M600 also happens to be a very cool car. Its inconspicuous design sports a slender and contoured body which does not scream out for attention at every second of the day.
217 mph, 0-60 in 3.4 secs. F140 Aluminum V12 Engine with 660 hp, base price is $670,000. Only 399 were ever produced; the price goes up every time someone
7. Pagani Zonda F:
215 mph, 0-60 in 3.5 secs. Mercedes Benz M180 V12 Engine with 650 hp, base price is $667,321. With a V12 motor, this baby can do much better.
8. Spyker C12 Zagato
0-60 mph: 3.8 seconds. 500-650 horsepower. Cost: $648,000.
The C12 Zagato was designed with F1 styles into its highly ornate body. The Zagato is powered by an engine with 500bhp and can go up to 650bhp with a supercharger. It is a mad house. Despite being priced at $648,000, its raw coolness quotient comes from unmatched aesthetics and power. The C12 Zagato is a cool car fit with skill, beauty, and passion. It is the car you want to take your lover or spouse out on a date with.
9. Audi R8
0-60 mph: 3.6 seconds. 525 horsepower. Cost: $114,200.
The Audi R8 sports 525 womping horses that wail at 8700 RPMs. The body styling is very stealthy and doesn’t scream “look at me!” yet turns as many, if not more, heads and plenty of stares and possibly picture-snapping, too. If you found dashboard warning lights issue on any Audi model, then take Audi manufacturers’ recommendations. The pricing is steep at $114,200, although you do get what you pay with this car.
10. Aston Martin One-77
0-60 mph: 3.5 seconds. 750 horsepower. Cost: $1,400,000.
Aston Martin was named the coolest car company in the U.K. It is the brand of choice for James Bond. And what I’m going to say is the One-77 is the coolest Aston Martin. Its style is of excellent workmanship that bleeds cool. The One-77 will do 0-60 in less than 3.5 seconds with top speeds higher than 200 mph. Depending on when you are reading this, the price of the One-77 can be at least $1.4 million.
