1) SSC Tuatara 331 Miles Per Hour (Official)

As the successor to their Ultimate Aero, Jerod Shelby (not related to Carroll) and his team needed more power. Knowing that a flat-plane V8 would easily rev to 9,000 rpm, they commissioned Nelson Racing Engines to build a 5.9-liter V8 by hand. Using Nelson’s patented Mirror-Image turbos, this American hypercar sends 1,750 horsepower and 1,280 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. This allowed them to reach a top speed of 331 mph for an official 2-way average of 316.11 mph.

It was a one-way run due to the track surface so ineligible for a world record.
