The top 5 fastest supercars in the world is one of the most coveted and controversial topic in all of motorsports.
Why? Because rival manufacturers trade claims and counter-claims, with several machines purported to be the quickest of the bunch.
And yes, since the invention of the motor car, engineers and innovators have been seeking ways to make them go faster and faster.
So without further ado, below are the elite Super Cars that made the prestigious cut for the top 5 fastest cars on the planet.
