Guinness World Records has announced that Bugatti has been stripped of the title for fastest production car in the world.

Bugatti has held that record for almost three years after setting a record speed of 267.8 mph. The record was re-investigated after accusations were made that the Veyron used in the record-setting run had its speed limiter removed.

Guinness World Records confirmed that the suspicions were correct and since the speed limiter was removed, it was no longer considered the same production car that consumers paid their hard-earned cash for. The rules state that the record must be set in a car that is mechanically identical to those on sale to the public.

The title of world’s fastest production car will likely go to Shelby SuperCars’ Ultimate Aero, which held the record of 256.1 mph before the Veyron Super Sport went 267.8.

    I understand they can’t keep the record any longer, and that’s fair.  But we know that it’s the fastest, and in the end that’s what really matters to me.

    Isn’t a Hennessy Venom considered the fastest production car now?

  • Greg Lee

    The undisputed fastest car in heavy traffic is still the smart car.
      That tiny thing can almost split lanes like a bike.

    The Bugatti Veyron just became a $2,000,000 paper weight. If it takes four miles to achieve top speed while the Venom GT did it in two miles, then it becomes apparent the Bugatti hypercar has been over-hyped.
