The Roadster was the first highway legal serial production all-electric car to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production all-electric car to travel more than 320 kilometres (200 mi) per charge. It is also the first production car to be launched into orbit, carried by a Falcon Heavy rocket in a test flight on February 6, 2018.
8. Lykan Fenyr SuperSport
Fenyr SuperSport is a Lebanese limited production sports car built by W Motors, a United Arab Emirates based company. It was unveiled at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show. The name of the car, Fenyr, comes from the word Fenrir, the name of a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology. The production of the car is planned to be up to 25 units per year, an increase from the limited 7-car total production run of its predecessor.The price of the Fenyr SuperSport is expected to start at US$1.9 million.
The manufacturer claims a top speed of 394 km/h (245 mph) for the Fenyr SuperSport. The car has a claimed 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 2.7 seconds. This is at least 5 km/h (3 mph) faster and 0.1 seconds quicker than the claimed figures for the Lykan HyperSport. It’s equipped with Porsche’s 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. The transmission is paired with a limited-slip differential and is mounted transversely at the rear of the vehicle transferring power to the rear wheels.
7. Koenigsegg Regera
The Koenigsegg Regera is a limited production, plug-in hybrid sports car manufactured by Swedish automotive manufacturer Koenigsegg. It was unveiled at the March 2015 Geneva Motor Show. As of September 2018, 20 units have been built of a total of 80, all of which have been sold, with a starting cost of approximately US$2.2 million each.
Regera combines a powerful twin-turbo V8 combustion engine with three electric motors and cutting edge battery power via new powertrain technology called Koenigsegg Direct Drive. This revolutionary technology removes the traditional gearbox, making the car lighter and more efficient. It’s comparatively light and can still perform competitively around a race circuit. It does 3.2 seconds between 150 to 250 km/h and under 20 seconds from 0 to 400 km/h. The only Hypercar/Megacar that we think could possibly be faster around a circuit is another Koenigsegg.
It produces a reported total of 1,822 PS (1,340 kW; 1,797 hp) through a hybrid powertrain. As in general, the Regera’s internal combustion engine (ICE) produces its greatest power only at high RPMs; however, due to the fixed gear, this corresponds to very high speeds. Power at low speeds is filled in by the electric motors, giving a maximum combined mechanical output of 1,500 PS (1,100 kW; 1,500 hp) and 2,000 N⋅m (1,475 lb⋅ft) of torque.
6. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale

The car is named after the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron. The car shares the name with the 1999 Bugatti 18/3 Chiron concept car.
The CHIRON is the fastest, most powerful, and exclusive production super sports car in BUGATTI’s history. Its sophisticated design, innovative technology, and iconic, performance-oriented form make it a unique masterpiece of art, form and technique, that pushes boundaries beyond imagination.
The main carryover component from the Veyron is the 7,993 cc (8.0 L) quad-turbocharged W16 engine, though it is heavily updated. The engine in the Chiron has a peak power output of 1,103 kW (1,500 PS; 1,479 hp) at 6,700 rpm and 1,600 N⋅m (1,180 lb⋅ft) of torque starting from 2,000 to 6,000 rpm. Its predecessor, the Veyron Super Sport produces 220 kW (299 PS; 295 bhp) less than the new Chiron, while the original Veyron produces 367 kW (499 PS; 492 hp) less power.
Like its predecessor, the Veyron, the Chiron utilises a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and a HaldexAll-wheel drive system. The carbon fibre body has a stiffness of 50,000 Nm per degree.
The Chiron can accelerate from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 2.4 seconds according to the manufacturer, 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 13.6 seconds. In a world-record-setting test, the Chiron reached 400 km/h (249 mph) in 32.6 seconds, after which it needed 9.4 seconds to brake to standstill.
The Chiron’s top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons, mainly arising from the tyres as the manufacturer concluded that no tyre currently manufactured would be able to handle the stress at the top speed the Chiron is capable of achieving.
