The most important super car list is out. As expected there has been a slight change in the list but some of the old contenders have still stuck to the list. To be on this list, super cars have to accomplish a couple of requirements. One is an amazing top speed had that to have been verified. Mare speculations on paper were not allowed. Number two, they were expected to be production cars and not concepts and three; they had to be the most aggressive and meanest cars on the planet. It’s now my pleasure to introduce you to the 11 most powerful production cars on the planet.

Jaguar XJ 220

Number 11 on the list is an amazing car from Jaguar. Launched back in 1992 the $650,000 (Kshs. 56 million) machine can accelerate to a top speed of 350km/h. It had a V6 that produced 524hp and could accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.8 seconds. Although she is an old girl now, the XJ220 has got what it takes to be one of the fastest cars on the planet.

Still got what it takes to beat numerous sports cars
Also in number 11 is the rear Zonda Cinque Roadster. This carbon fibre beauty can do 350km/h thanks to a twin turbocharged AMG V12 engine that give out an amazing 678hp.

Although one had to pay a whopping $1,850,000 (Kshs. 158 million) this baby is guaranteed to satisfy any driver on the wheel. 
Only 5 were ever produced
Next to the Cinque on the number 11 podium is the most dynamic car Ferrari has ever made. When it came out back in 2002 it was one of the most exclusive Ferrari one could ever own.
Ferrari Enzo
Owners were vetted and selected before buying each of the 400 copies made. They had to cough out $670,000 (Kshs. 56 million) in order to enjoy the power from the 660hp V12 aluminium engine. It was such an astonishing car that Ferrari named it after their founder Mr Enzo Ferrari.
