Sweet pic of the Pista! (#20)

I don't know that I'd call the Tuatura a "production car" though. That implies a vehicle built for the masses when you know darn well they've only built a handful for the rich.

I don't let those sites that dribble out the info over dozens of pages suck me in, so I only saw #40. It's the same old shill game that the ads on phones use, give you a teaser title and then drag it out for dozen's of ads and screens.

I would certainly hate to be in an accident at speed in any of those except possibly the Dodge products.

I think the majority of those would fold up like a beer can. Or fly apart like it was hit with a shotgun blast.

Interesting. I enjoyed looking at the list. They are looking only at top speed. I've always thought of a "fast car" as more than just that. I've always though the Nurburgring is a good track for needing alot of everything, top speed, acceleration, handling, cornering and lparticulaly braking, which is an often overlooked thing needed in an truly fast car.

Yup. A fast car isn't much good if you can't slow it down when needed. Not all of us have salt flats to work with.

I found the list very interesting however some misinformation.
#28 the Dodge Hellcat Redeye claims 717HP. The 717 HP is for the regular Hellcat. The Redeye has 797HP.
