Human beings are naturally curious. This virtue (or defect, as the case may be) has led mankind to push certain limits on time. One of the fields where this happens is the automotive industry. A large percentage of the vehicles on the market do not stand out for their performance. Rather, they are practical choices that get people from one point to another. But the engineers of some of the most prestigious car brands in the world, who are also curious people, ask themselves time and time again what is the maximum speed we will be able to reach.

From this recurrent doubt born this list of the fastest cars in the world. An exclusive selection where few cars are selected. In Techidence, we have compiled the fastest models, the beasts of the motor world that can exceed 400 km/h. Do you want to know them? stay with us!

10. McLaren Speedtail

We start with the McLaren Speedtail, which was presented in 2019. With Formula 1 car DNA, it features a three-seat design where the driver is in the center. Its engine is a 4-liter hybrid V8, a differential fact with respect to the rest of the cars included in this list. The maximum speed capable of reaching is about 402 km/h. For the moment, that is the figure given by the brand, although no tests have been published. We will have to, in this case, trust McLaren.
