The current record holder for the fastest production car ever is the Bugatti Chiron super sport 300+. There is some controversy over this record, because another car, the SSC Tuatara broke the record. However, the car’s 1st run was faked and the second run was unsuccessful. Therefore. the Chiron super sport 300+ still holds the record, even if one may say that the SSC Tuatara has a faster top speed. But let’s go back into the previous record holders.

History Of The fastest production Car:

These are production cars so no race cars.

2017 Koenigsegg Agera RS 277.9

2019         Bugatti Chiron super sport 300+    304.774 mph

As you can see, there have been a lot of record holders and changes. As of now though, there is only one car that can go 300+ mph and that is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. Bugatti is going to need to build a faster car if the Koenigsegg Jesko, gets a run. The Jesko’s engine is a twin turbocharged v8 engine that produces 1280 brake horsepower, but on E85 (Race Fuel), it will produce 1600 brake horsepower.

Cars are getting lighter, stronger, and faster. So car companies are going to need to step up their game, to be one of the best. They have to really put in the effort if they want to hold the title as the fastest production car in the world.
