Some might be able to build cars that are capable of higher speeds than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport's 267.856 mph, but we will never know unless Volkswagen occasionally opens the doors to the only place on Earth where they can be pushed that far.
At the World's Fastest Convertible's high speed run, everybody was wearing rather ridiculous "Bugatti" sunglasses made of carbon fiber and "Vitesse"-branded driving shoes. Except for Harry Metcalfe. EVO Magazine's editor-in-chief went for a drive wearing a Maserati cardigan instead. British humor at its best!
The F1 was the fastest production car for over a decade. Here is video from the cockpit on March 31, 1998, when the McLaren recorded its highest speed ever.
