It’s a dream for people to drive a supercar in public as some of the supercars are not legally allowed to be driven on public roads and here we are with the top 10 fastest legal street cars in the world.

10- Tesla Roadster

One of the fastest legal street cars in the world with a record-setting acceleration (0-60mph in just 1.9 sec), range and performance. It is an all-electric battery-powered supercar and maximizes the potential of aerodynamic engineering.

The Tesla Roadster(2020) is the successor to Tesla’s first production car, Tesla Roadster(2008) and it is designed by an American automobile engineer “Franz von Holzhausen”.

The supercar offers a top speed of 402kph(249.79mph), aided by 10,000 Nm of wheel torque from its all-wheel-drive configuration. According to Elon Musk, The Tesla Roadster would hit the roads in 2020. This will cost $250,000 and limited to just 1,000 cars.

The Tesla Roadster is set to travel a staggering 620 miles on a single charge with a battery pack of 200kWh. The Tesla Roadster will have four seats.

Valkyrie is Aston Martin’s first ever hypercar and it leaves nothing in reserve. Also called through its code-names as “AM-RB 001” and “Nebula”.

Valkyrie is a limited production hybrid sports car collaboratively built by British automobile manufacturer Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing and several other manufacturers. The road car’s production will be limited to 150 units at a unit price of US $3.2 million.

Valkyrie’s insane performance comes from the 6.5-liter V12 engine developed with Cosworth. Bluntly different from a traditional hybrid system, the V12 is torque-enhanced during take-off and uses the electric motor for a power boost.

All of Valkyrie’s structure is made up of only carbon-fiber and exceptionally lightweight. This iconic creation will supply a naturally-aspirated V12 specifically to a 1:1 power-topweight ratio.

Valkyrie offers a top speed of 403kph(250.41mph)and can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds. The advanced mid-mounted powertrain takes its cue from F1™. Throttle response of the V12 is honed for a seductive sound; the hybrid technology gives an immediacy of acceleration.
