The Veryon hasn't hit production yet, the CC is the same- the Mclaren F1 still holds the title

I've heard other claims of faster cars but I've not read of a production model faster then the F1 either.

I've heard the same. I even have a McLaren pster that reads: 'The Fastest Road Car Ever.' Speeds exceeding 230, right? Pretty impressive.

I would go with the McLaren F1 has the fastest top speed, but the fastest accelerating car in the world is the Viper Venom 800 Twin Turbo with 0-60 times of 2.2 seconds. The Camaro ZL-1 accelerates 0-60 at 2.3 seconds.

Well, currently, the Mclaren holds the record at 242mph. There is a video and audio file avaible... (390, 391..................391..............392!........ ....thats all she'll do, 392 km/h....still mighty impressive isnt it?).
The Veyron is promising a top speed of 406km/h (252mph), but, that remains to be seen still.
The Koneiggsegg CC promises at 220+mph top speed, but, Ive not heard of this being independently verified as of yet.

Both the Viper and Camaro have been sold in this version, but you have to call certain people and have it made before you buy. The Camaro ZL-1 was the one that was put up against a 99 Mustang Boss on TNN as a battle of which was the better car. The Boss won by like .2 of a second, but the Boss had slicks while the ZL-1 had street tires. Also, the ZL-1 boasts a high 238 mph. Another thing, I saw a 92 Vette (probably lying) saying it could go in excess of 265 mph. This was seen in a Duponte Registry Magazine.

2001 Hennessey Venom 800TT
1987 Ferrari GT Evoluzione
1994 Jaguar XJ220S TWR
1993 Ferrari 333 SP

I believe that no one ever entered the dauer 962 for the record top speed, and maybe it did not qualify due to the low numbers made, I cant quite remember, but it was less than 20 and maybe less than ten.

The fastest car is

Ok i have solved all of your fighting i did some reseach and this is what i came up with:

corvette sledgehammer: 255 mph
bugatti eb 16 /4veyron: 252 mph
Dauer 962: 250 mph
Vector Avtech WX-3: 249 mph
koenigsegg CC: 240 mph
Tvr speed 12: 240 mph
McLarin F1: 240 mph
ferrari koenig racing evelution: 230 mph
Hennessey viper venom: 225- 230 mph
lamborghini VTTT: 223 mph

(note the person who said the tomahawk was the fastest, it is not a car it is a motorcycle but if it was it would but the fastest becasue it goes 300 mph plus)

So the person who said the sledgehammer was the fastest you are correct
