Year after year, the automobile producers put great efforts to create the next fastest car and thanks to the fact that humanity is deeply in love with speed, we live in a world that supercars exist as a necessary part of life.

8. Gumpert Apollo — 223 mph
The production of Gumpet Apollo starts in 2005 and it ends in 2015 when the German manufacturer Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH claims bankruptcy.

9. Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster —217 mph
Ever since we know about the brand Lamborgini, we have always related it to a fast, luxurious and futuristic car. This tradition dates from 2011, and today the Italian manufacturer continues to create extraordinary models. The SVJ Roadster is the proudest achievement of the Aventador series, and only 800 pieces are produced. The price is nearly $600,000 which is totally worth due to the fact that the designers were inspired by the idea of a space ship.
10.Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 — 212 mph
ZR1 is the fastest Corvette model produced ever. The main purpose of the design is achieving the highest performance possible, and that`s the reason the shapes are a little bit more pragmatical than fashion-oriented. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 costs $135,895, which compared to the models above, seems quite affordable.
