The fastest cars in the world

“What’s the fastest car mommy? ” my son asked this morning while we’re driving on our way to office. I really don’t know the answer, but i remember my boss used to tell stories about Formula 1 car race and he mentioned about Ferrari cars so i just replied that Ferrari is the fastest car. Oh well, speaking of my boss he is actually a die hard fan of Formula 1, he even went to Singapore last year just to watch the Formula One  car race. I remember when he came back from his trip, he cheerfully narrate to us all his experiences at the said event, from Ferrri cars to Ferrari parts , to race tracks and pit stops.

Anyway out of curiosity, i searched the net to find out what’s really the fastest car world. Based on www.thesupercars.org the top ten fastest car in the world for 2008-2009 are the following:

1.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 takes the lead as the fastest car in the world beating Bugatti Veyron.
