Far away from the regular segment of passenger cars with a specified benchmark of luxury and limited raw fun, there are cars that will thrill you each time you take it for a ride. These cars are the one that could very well be termed as loyal. You just work on the accelerator and it will respond like nothing else can.
Who doesn’t like speed? Everyone. Even if you have never been exposed to sports cars with powerful racing engines inside, you will always have your genes kicking off each time you are on the highway. This is when you can easily hit a speed in excess of 120 km per hour even with your 1.5-litre capacity engine. Imagine how good you could do if you handled the steering of a V10 supercar.
But while talking about fast supercars, we don’t hint at the track-specialized cars that are built for the race tracks only. What we actually mean is that these cars should necessarily be a road legal version from any major automaker and not an impulsive redesign or retuned car from a hobbyist or enthusiasts.
With this qualification parameter being set, let’s go and find out the top 10 road legal cars that will make you feel faster than winds.

The Fastest Car In The World:
Audi R8 (330 km/hr)
The Audi R8 is one of most recent Audi supercars. It has an aesthetic design to die for and resembles a racing car in terms of the design (despite being road legal itself). The Audi R8 has an all wheel drive mechanism, which makes the accelerator all the more responsive and smooth at the same time.
Under the hood, the Audi supercar has a 5.2-litre V10 engine, which is sourced from the Lamborghini Huracan. The engine will continue to respond to full throttle until you reach a maximum power of 610 bhp and a peak torque of 560 Nm.
Porsche 911 Turbo S (330 km/hr)
The Porsche 911 Turbo S could be anything by a racer-born car. The design of the car looks like a perfect combination of chubby and supercar-ish. But hold on! Save some praises for the extremely sharp rear profile with spoiler and the sleek tail lights.
However, the best thing about this Porsche 911 Turbo S is the engine. The 3.8-litre flat-six engine promises to deliver 580 bhp of highest power and a humongous 750 Nm of torque. Pair it with the traditional rear wheel drive of Porsche and you will feel the push each time you hit the acceleration.
McLaren F1 (390 km/hr)
McLaren cars have always been known to be beasts in the making. And guess what, the designing of the car on the outside is the best evidence of the powerful heart. The layout of the car in more of bulgy like any Porsche car and not edgy as the Audi R8.
This ultimate road legal supercar thrives on a 6.1-litre V12 engine which is ready to breathe out fire with the ignition. However, the fact that it has a centre driver’s seat makes its presence as a road-legal car debatable.
Pagani Huayra BC (390 km/hr)
The PaganiHuayra BC cannot be tamed by any sane man. The exterior of this supercar looks like an absolute stunner. The grey and black colour tone version, with silver alloy wheels, is a treat for every eye. The usage of high quality gets the weight down to just 1,200 kgs.
The improved aerodynamics, reduced weight and the AMG-sourced V12 bi-turbo engine make for a beast on the inside. The retuned engine has been fired up in the throttle response and can hit a top power of 789 bhp.
Porsche 918 Spyder (340 km/hr)
The Porsche 918 is the last model from the famous “Trinity” lineup. The Spyder belongs to the track, as they say. But it also considered being a mainstream road-legal supercar. The designing of the car is just perfect with the best aerodynamics to enhance the performance. In fact, it is one of the best hybrid cars that could be, with incredible speed, eye-grabbing applications and a high level of efficiency.
The top speed may seem to be a hair less than many other supercars but add on the all-wheel-drive and the unbelievable acceleration that it possesses.
Bentley Continental Supersports (340 km/hr)
Not that the Bentley Continental Supersports is the fastest car among hypercars. But the fact that the luxury and comfort that Bentley offers, only few can match up to.
The Bentley Continental Supersports is claimed to the fastest four seater luxury car. It, by no means, looks like a supercar but an elegant and lavishly designed one. The interiors are plush and will make you feel like a living room on wheels. It is also the fastest Bentley car to be made for the road.
In terms of the mechanism, the Continental Supersports is a stalwart. It has a massive 6.0-litre, twin-turbo, W-12 engine which can pump out a huge power of 700 bhp and a humongous torque of 1015 Nm.
Ferrari 812 Superfast (340 km/hr)
When we talk about cars, the actual road-legal beasts, one cannot just simply miss the Ferrari. Ferrari had, long back, stopped being subtle about their business in the sector on supercars. The 812 Superfast is just an example of the niche the brand works in. The long bonnet and short and shallow tail section are what signifies the company’s forte.
The Ferrari 812 Supersports is fed with a naturally aspirated V12, 6.5-litre engine which thrusts out 789 bhp of power and 720 Nm of torque. On the road, with the maximum engine revs kicking off, you will feel the thrill it has on offer.
Lamborghini Aventador S (350 km/hr)
The Lamborghini Aventador S is one of the poster boys when it comes to supercars. In fact, Lamborghini has always been up there on the block as far as supercars are concerned. The first sign of aggression appears on the exterior design with every bit of the cuts and bends shouting out loud and bold.
At the heart as well, there is a 6.5-litre, V12 engine which thumps out 740 bhp of power and 690 Nm of torque at the peak engine revolution. With this, the 0-100 km/hr sprint barely takes around 2.9 seconds.
Bugatti Chiron (420 km/hr)
Yeah! I know what you are presently thinking. Isn’t the Bugatti Chiron the fastest car in the world? Of course, it is. But there is one clause attached to it. The top speed of 420 km/hr is electronically limited to that level. It comes with loads of customisable options.
Save yourself for the best, the Bugatti Chiron has an 8-litre, W16, quad-turbocharged engine which makes a humongous 1,500 bhp of power. But keep the limitter away and you will see the speedo rising higher.
Bugatti Veyron (430 km/hr)
The Bugatti Veyron is fast, no doubt, but it was formerly the fastest before the Chiron was introduced. Yet, the Veyron has the ability to hit a top speed in excess to what the Chiron can. This is because the Veyron does not have a speed limiter and can be pulled up to 430 km/per hr.
The Veyron has a W16, 8.0-litre turbocharged engine which can make a high power of 897 bhp and a peak torque of 1,250 Nm and an all wheel drive mechanism. Though the power is lesser than that of the Chiron, it is faster nevertheless.
That is it?
The list of fastest cars are very dynamic and the companies keep pushing the boundaries higher, keeping the benchmark go higher up. However, there are many cars that should have appeared on this list, given the fact that they are fast enough to match up to these. But the only reason why they have not made it to this list is that of their non-existence (read testing phase), one of them being the new Valkyrie.
