Did not have Koensegg specs, but obviously reading this thread, it is not clear which car is fastest, because lots of it is about skill in driving.

OK, this should stop the argument. I have sitting here my Guiness World Records 2003, and you can't argue with them, because this is official. The fastest production car is the McLaren F1 with a top speed of 240.1 mph, tested by Andy Wallace on on March 31st, 1998, at the Volkswagen Proving Ground in Wolfsburg, Germany.

For you who were wondering what the fastest 0-60 on a production car is, it is 3.07 seconds by the Ford RS200 Evolution.

The other cars either
1. are not actually in production

or

2. Their top speed hasn't actually been tested ( this is most likely the case, because finding a straightaway that can carry the car up to over 240 mph is extremely rare, which is why the F1 was tested at the Volkswagen track, which has a really really long straightaway )

I dont mean to be disrespectable but for car enthusiasts i cant beleive that none of you knows one of the most important facts about cars. The last time i checked, a few months ago, this is what i came up with.

The Lamborghini Diablo VT holds the title at the moment. The reason being it is actually still in production and has a proven topspeed accaepted everywhere, hardly any, if one, of the cars the previous posts mentioned are or ever were in production. The koenigsegg could be the fastest, i have also seen stats on 227mph acheived, if this is so then the cc is the fastest, and yes it is a production car. The mclaren has gone out of production for years, so it no longer qualifies, it is however the fastest production car ever, which is why it is still in the guinness book of world records. The point about manufacterers not applying for the record is also correct. These people talking about the callaway and lingelfeter or whatever, you need a serious rethink, if you want to mention cars like that dont you think others could mention cars like the HKS drag skyline, Blitz Skyline, Top Secret Supra, Duaer 962 Le Mans, Lamborghini Diablo Coatl & loads others that were tested to very high speeds. A production car is available to any & everyone. So the Diablo is the king unless the koenigsegg has been confirmed @ 227mph which i think is highly likely, its a great car and i have no doubt it can reach the 247 predicted if not more.

P.S. someone needs to check out the Zonda S7.3 it acheived 220mph in private tests by someplace. Rumours are it cant acheive this without a special front wing? Also the Enzo is sposed to go 217mph.

ähemm
can i correct you?


the power of the bugatti will be reduced cause
1. the car is unhandeble at speeds over 300
2. the power and torque are too much for the axle gear

Hey Yazza, wake up, this is 2003, and the Diablo is quite obviously out of production. Apparently when you said "a few months ago", it was more like "a few years ago". The only cars Lamborghini is currently making are the Murcielago and Gallardo. And it doesn't matter wether a car is out of production or still in production as long as it is considered as a production car. And Farbod, the Bugatti has not been officially tested. This is why you will find many different claims on different sites. You guys should hold in your claims that the Veyron is the fastest production car until it actually IS a production car, which will be delayed for around a year. McLaren F1 still holds the title!
