Callaway Corvette Sledgehammer beats the Veyron by 1.76 mph if you go by the Veyron's reported top speed of 253 mph. And the Sledgehammer achieved this in 1989.

Back in 1989, Callaway said they could reproduce it for $400,000. However, I don't believe anyone took them up on that. So there is only one. But if you'd had the money and wanted one, you could have gotten one.

I'm sure the Ariel Atom could be thrown in the mix as well. But again, the term fastest is limited as to what scope.

pretty sure top speed "Production Car" current record holder is the Veyron at 253 mph appx.. Before that i believe it was the Koenigsegg CCx at 245 mph.

But then again..i could be wrong. i just know its not ME at 174 mph. how lame does tht sound when talking about 250+ mph cars. lame....

I remember the Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Vette turning a 1.87 0-60. They were racing it against a Blue Angel on the Speedchannel. I cant remember what the top speed was though.

I assume you mean quickest "stock" production car, but a guy that goes to Raceway park in Englishtown NJ drives his stock chasis (caged) '79-'80 Malibu to the track & runs 9.2 second 1/4 miles on street tires then drives it back home, car is fully street legal.
He runs 8.8 in the 1/4 on slicks, & thinks our car is wild.
If I had to bet between his car & anything else in a drag race, I'd have my dollar on
him & his 30-60' wheelstands.
