Top 20 Fastest cars in the World 2009

Faced with the recent pub quiz question ‘ what is the top speed of the world ‘ s fastest production car? ‘ the Sky Motoring quiz crew were quite appalled when (a) they had to ponder the question for a good three minutes and (b) couldn ‘ t rank the other fastest cars in an appropriate order.

So taking this simple premise, we ‘ ve decided to geek up and show you (in order) the world ‘ s fastest production cars so that (a) should this quiz question ever arise again, you are in no doubt as to the answer and (b) should you have Ronaldo ‘ s level of wedge in your pocket and fancy going 200+mph, you know exactly what to buy. Enjoy!
