As of October 10th 2020, SSC have broken the top speed record for a production car with their Tuatara hypercar. The v-max achieved was an incredible 331 mph, smashing the previous record of 304 mph held by the 2019 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300. The record run was made on a seven-mile stretch of closed road just outside of Las Vegas Nevada, and included a run in both directions which gave a two-way average of 316.11 mph. Whilst that top speed will be hard to match let alone exceed, the next challengers lined-up come from the likes of the Hennessey Venom F5 and Koenigsegg Jesko.
Speeds listed are quoted from manufacturer spec sheets which may or may not be completely tested and confirmed.
