    Arrow Forbes: Top 10 of America's Fastest Cars....

    Mind-Blowing Speeds:


    No. 1 SSC Ultimate Aero


    Base Price: $654,500
    Top Speed: 260 to 273 mph

    The Ultimate Aero is one of the most extreme vehicles--make that one of the most extreme ideas--of which we have ever heard. It achieves such ridiculous performance with a 1,046-horsepower V-8 engine (you read that hp figure correctly), shoehorned into a car that weighs as much as a Dodge Neon.


    No. 2 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo


    Base Price: $555,000
    Top Speed: 240 to 260 mph (estimated)

    About as fast and pricey as a car can be (any car, not just an American one), Saleen's S7 has been around for enough years to become an icon in the auto world, even if it may not have widespread public exposure. Recently overhauled, the S7 now features a 750-hp V-8.



    No. 3 Evans 387 and 487 (tie)


    Base Prices: $175,000 (387); $170,000 (487)
    Top Speed: 206 mph

    Evans, a small automaker started in 1986, makes street-legal racecars that are anything but subtle. Both Evans' 387 and 487 models use 7.0-liter, 550-hp V-8 engines.

    * Pictured above: The Evans 386. The 387 is the same car with a different engine.



    No. 4 Ford GT

    Base Price: $141,245
    Top Speed: 205 mph

    If the American auto business reverses its fortunes and returns to fighting strength, the GT will be adduced as a turning point. People will remember it for reminding the world--when the world needed reminding--how amazing, fast and beautiful an American car could be.



    No. 5 Chevrolet Corvette Z06


    Base Price: $65,800
    Top Speed: 198 mph

    The newest Corvette is also the fastest Corvette ever. Recently released, the Z06 has about as low a sticker price as a car with 505 hp can have.



    No. 6 Dodge Viper SRT-10


    Base Price: $85,745
    Top Speed: 190 mph (estimated)

    The top-speed figure posted here applies both to Dodge's classic Viper convertible and its new hardtop version of the car.



    No. 7 Mullen M-11 with V-8


    Base Price: $69,950
    Top Speed: 180+ mph

    Mullen is a small company that builds kit cars, but also pre-assembled, hand-built models. Its M-11 sports car can come with a 400-hp Corvette V-8.

    * Pictured above: Mullen M-11 (not necessarily with V-8 engine)



    No. 8 Panoz Esperante GTLM


    Base Price: $121,325
    Top Speed: 180 mph

    A perennial favorite of ours, the Esperante is a low-volume model line built by Georgia-based Panoz. Its flagship model is the GTLM convertible, which delivers stunning performance to complement good looks and a high level of interior comfort and practicality.




    No. 9 Chrysler 300C SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8 and Dodge Magnum SRT8 (tie)


    Base Prices: $42,695 (300C), $38,095 (Charger) and $37,995 (Magnum)
    Top Speed: 165 to 170 mph (estimated)

    Among American automakers, Chrysler and Dodge have recently started producing the most consistently good new cars. They are making their name with strong designs and high-performance vehicles. The best combination of sharp new looks and strong performance is Chrysler Group's family of "SRT8" cars, which are all new and highly desirable.

    * Pictured above: Dodge Charger SRT8



    No. 10 Cadillac CTS-V


    Base Price: $51,395
    Top Speed: 163 mph

    The CTS-V sedan was the first entry in Cadillac's new high-performance V-Series line. Soon, an STS-V sedan and XLR-V convertible will join the lineup, but for now the CTS-V is all there is.

    Is this only for production cars? I thought the ME 412 should be up there as well.

    SSC is just some rich guy who decided he wants to build his version of the ultimate exotic.

    I think it will be a flop and wont do anythign it claims other then high hp and crazy 1/4 mile times. But it will not touch 273 mph...I dont think it has. highly doubtful that a rich guy hiring some retired car engineer will make a car go that fast with the 1st model. Took Baron Von Koeinsegg 2 models to reach 242 and took Pagani 3 models to reach 225. Not even Saleen reached his estimated top speed of 260 mph. The record was just broken by the CCR and the Bughatti is trying to break that. It takes alot of work to reach 200 and to go above 200 takes even more work. Its certainly not about power at all...its about aerodynamics at that point.

    I mean he coould if he had all the room in the world and perfect conditions. But its only a 6 speed manual....most likely a T56 tranny. Can you imagine the gear ratios on that thing? I almost needs all that torque.

    like the CCR the gear ratios are probally so wide everytime you shift you have to wait for the car to build up that power. That was the disapointement of the Koeinsegg CCR

    On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit and you go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think, ok, this is the limit. As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you realise that you can suddenly go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and your experience as well, you can fly very high.
