The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport currently holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest street-legal production car in the world. It boasts a quad-turbocharged 16 cylinder engine which produces 1200bhp in power.

Jaguar’s XJ220 was extremely popular before release, having 1500 deposits amassed before Jaguar’s announcement that only 350 would be made. However, after the initial release, despite being very fast, the XJ220 was a disappointment to racing enthusiasts and did not fulfil the promises Jaguar had made for it. At the end of production, only 165 of over 250 cars were sold.

The Ferrari F40 was the last Ferrari to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari himself. It was the first street-legal production car to break 200mph. At a suggested retail price of $400,000 in 1987, it was the most expensive car that Ferrari have ever sold to the public.
