Which is the most important criterion when we are talking about the sport cars? Of course, this is the speed. The first world’s record was established in 1898 when Gaston de Chasseloup Lauba raced its battery-driven vehicle to 63.15 km/h. At that time it was the fastest car in the world. After that carmakers tried to create the vehicles that would be able to overcome the mark of 300 km/h. And they did it! This is the list of the fastest cars in the world:
