Automotive success is marked by the production of the fastest cars in the world, and it’s a label that producers have striven for across many decades. Cars are getting lighter, faster, and sleeker, making the records inch continuously upwards. The formulation for the fastest racing car in the world is an indefinable achievement. Many auto manufacturers are presently improving production cars to be ever faster, making their model have top speeds that are mere miles per hour faster than their competition. In many cases, the fastest cars in the world are also the most luxurious and expensive ones. For example, both the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Bugatti La Voiture Noire succeeded in being ranked as top models for both speed and luxury. A car’s top speed is nothing more than a random way of stating that one particular car is faster than another. While these dimensions may seem immaterial to a car’s overall quality and application, the chase of higher and higher speed pushes progress across the car industry. In looking to increase speed, cars are also becoming easier to control and more economical.
