Friendly Disclaimer: A lot of time, effort, resources and rational thinking has been put together for hand crafting this beautiful list of Top 10 fastest cars in the world. Idea is to create something unique and interesting that doesn't exist anywhere yet than just replicating the ready list of Guinness World record or some motor authority certified results. Mixing the different league of production car vs custom build or new vs old etc. has been done intentionally to create a single unified list of ACTUAL fastest cars in the world on only two key parameters: "Top speed" and "road worthiness" for real car enthusiast's here at Carnity.com.
Apologies if your favorite Lambo and Ferrari didn't made in the list, because their Top speed is slower than 362 Kmph (225 Mph). Or your Bloodhound supersonic capable of 1000 Mph didn't made in the list, because they are for desert or salt track and not road worthy enough.
Having said all of the above, in case you find any information is inaccurate or wrongly positioned then please let us know and we will re-evaluate that finding and reflect in above list as fast as we can.
Btw, we are serious that this is the one and only unique list in the world. So be sure you will be the first to share this with your friend's
