McLaren Speedtail — 2019
Many would argue that the McLaren F1 is one of the most significant sports cars ever built, breaking a 10-year-old record in 1998 to become the world’s fastest production car by clocking a maximum speed of 240.14 mph. The British carmaker subsequently created some thrilling sports cars, but nothing could really be considered a proper successor to that iconic F1 until the McLaren Speedtail. Referred to as a “Hyper-GT,” the Speedtail is the fastest production McLaren ever, boasting a top speed of 250 mph. Power comes from a 4.0-liter V8 teamed with an electric drive to produce 1055 horsepower and 848 lb-ft of torque. In homage to the iconic F1, the Speedtail has the driver sitting in the center of the cockpit, flanked by two passenger seats set farther back.
