Despite all the changes that occur in the auto industry on an annual basis, there is one list that won’t see a whole lot of movement: the fastest production cars in existence. The need for speed has come a long way in the last couple of decades, but while the race to 300 miles per hour is underway, the engineering required to do so is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.

Here are the ten fastest production cars for 2013-2014, excluding vehicles that are tied for a certain position. According to TheSupercars.org, where the list originated, the list leaves out cars not street legal, and only accounts for production vehicles (concepts or modified cars are left out). Further, each car is measured by its confirmed top speed; theoretical top speeds that have not been proven are not included.

11. Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador will clear 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds and make its way on to a 220 miler per hour top speed, thanks to its 700 or so horsepower V12. It shares tenth place on the list with the Ascari A10 and the Aston Martin One-77, both of which will hit the 220 mark before coming back down.
