10. 218 MPH Top Speed

Ever wonder what it’s like riding an explosion? The P1’s acceleration should approximate the detonation of a hydrogen bomb. According to McLaren representatives the car can rocket from a standstill to 100 kilometers an hour (62 miles an hour) in less than three seconds. It can top 200 km/h (124 MPH) in about seven seconds. And in less time than it takes to read this paragraph the car will blow past 300 km/h, roughly 186 miles an hour. The P1 is electronically limited to 350 km/h (218 MPH), probably to preserve the integrity of space-time and prevent blowing a hole through the Milky Way Galaxy.
