In the world of supercars, it is a constant race to see who can create the fastest or most powerful machine on the road. Some manufacturers opt to create cars that can’t be driven on the road only for the super elite. While these cars are spectacular in their engineering prowess, they can only be driven in a track setting. Rather than focusing on the fastest new cars of any driving experience, we want to look at the fastest new cars you can buy right now and drive on the road.
While there have ben many faster street-legal cars created in the past, the cars on this list are all from the 2017 model year or newer. For many of us, reading this list may inspire you to take out a second mortgage on your home to purchase these supercars. I can’t advise you to do that in good conscious, but if you love state of the art engineering and supercars, it may just be the right decision for you.
Each car is listed by top speed and broken down into a number of performance characteristics.
