Top 10 Fastest Super Sports Cars in the World (2016)
The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Which car can achieve top speed of 10 mph (16 km/h). Since the dawn of Sports/Super cars speed didn't matted anymore, since then cars started to cross speed limits with ultimate speed and now cars achieving speed more than 460kph. Most of these achievers are non-production cars, some are production cars, some are concept cars, so here a filtered list of the top 10 world's fastest sports/super car given below. Read on:

Top 10 Fastest Super Sports Cars in the World (2016)

1. Bugatti Chiron (288 mph)
1. Bugatti Chiron (288 mph)
The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined, two-seated sports car, designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The Chiron was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1st, 2016. The main carryover piece will be the 8 litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. Direct injection will be added and two of the four turbos will be electronically driven to eliminate turbo lag. Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N·m (1,180 lb·ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and 4WD system. The Chiron will accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in under 6.5 seconds and 0-300 km/h (186 mph) in under 13.6 seconds. The Chiron's top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons. The anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph).  At full speed the 100 liter fuel tank would be empty in 8 minutes, that is 190 l/100 km or 4.5 kg CO2/km. 500 units are to be produced and 170 orders have already been placed. The Chiron will be available towards the end of 2016 with a cost of €2.4 million (circa £1.9 million, or $2.66 million US).

2. Koenigsegg Agera R (273 mph)
The Agera R made its debut at the March 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and reach a theoretical top speed of 439 km/h (273 mph). The Agera R has a drag coefficient of Cd=0.37, or Cd=0.33 at high speed due to its adaptive rear wing.This adaptive rear wing system is lighter than conventional hydraulic/electrical adaptive systems, and has the unique ability to compensate for head/tailwind due to its spring-loaded design. On 2 September 2011, during test sessions in Ängelholm, the Agera R broke six world land speed records for a production car, including 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 14.53 seconds, and 0-300-0 km/h in only 21.19 seconds. The braking performance required to maintain this record is enabled in part by the Agera's stability, demonstrated by Koenigsegg's test driver and drivetrain technician Robert Serwanski. The 2013 version of Agera R premiered at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Upgrades included carbon fiber wheels, enhanced aerodynamics, and engine upgrades allowing the Agera R's 5 litre twin turbocharged engine to produce 850 kW (1,140 hp) on E85. And, thanks to Koenigsegg's Flex Fuel Sensor technology, the ECU can respond to varying fuel qualities and alcohol content by reducing power levels as a means of protecting the engine. On standard low octane fuels, power is reduced to 716 kW (960 hp).
