Feast your eyes on some of the fastest cars in the world
– The average price tag on these supercars and hypercars is anywhere from $100,000 to upwards of $12 million.
– Competition is fierce with the slowest car coming in at 2.8 seconds, while the fastest clocks 60 mph in 2.2 seconds.
One. Two. Three. In the time it took you to read this, some of the fastest cars in the world can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour. That’s the type of speed that can melt your face, not to mention impress everyone you know!
You don’t have to be a car aficionado to be fascinated with immense speed, but the 0 to 60 mph metric is an excellent one for measuring a car’s overall performance.
“You don’t have to be a car aficionado to be fascinated with immense speed.”
Here are five insanely fast automobiles that can effectively enter hyperspeed and blast to a mile a minute in three seconds or less.
At anywhere from $3 million to $12 million, you won’t see many Bugatti Chiron’s on the streets. It’s more of a plaything for box office megastars and hedge fund managers than it is the everyman’s car, but those billionaires probably consider it worth every penny when it comes to speed.
The Bugatti Chiron can reach 60 mph in 2.3 seconds. In other words, blink and you might just miss it.
BMW has a reputation for fine German engineering, and the legacy manufacturers behind the M5 do not disappoint. The BMW M5 is also much more reasonably priced than some of its compatriots, and you can have it sitting in your garage for anywhere from $102,700 and up.
“It can clock 60 mph in 2.8 seconds.”
Despite the lower price point than the Bugatti, it’s no slouch in the speed department.
By my count, that works out to an extra $579,460 for each millisecond if you want to step up to the Bugatti’s 2.3 seconds. I’ll let you decide if it’s worth the extra $2.9 million.

“That’s right Elon, the Pininfarina Battista is coming for you and your Teslas.”
“McLaren and luxury go together like peanut butter and jam. Or, as a rich person might say, like Dolce and Gabbana.”
