Planes and trains have their place, but nothing beats the feeling of an accelerated automobile. To be out on the road sensing the engine beneath your seat is one of the most exhilarating things a driver can experience. No wonder NASCAR is so popular: who doesn’t love to fantasize about what they would do in a premium performance vehicle going top speed.
As much as we love the acceleration, few of us buy vehicles that go much faster than 100 miles per hour and never have the opportunity to drive even that fast. We dream, however, of being able to drive at double or triple those speeds. The following vehicles are the fastest in the world, providing an unforgettable experience for the lucky few with the means and bravery to drive them:
