Traveling 200-plus mph in a car is something few will ever experience.
Most people have never come close to going 200 mph in a car. There aren't many cars out there designed to safely do 200 mph. That being said, there are many supercars out there that easily top this mark. While you may never be able to ride in these supercars, you can get an idea of what it's like to be behind the wheel of one/watch one speed by when you check out all of the videos here. These clips feature everything from American muscle cars to Swedish supercars rocketing past 200 mph and are a must-watch for fans of speed.
The Koenigsegg Agera R is an amazing machine. This clip shows the Swedish supercar making runs from 0-300-0 kph and 0-200-0 mph. The 0-200-0 mph run was made in an incredible 24.96 seconds.
This short clips shows the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 running at 200 mph on Italy's Nardo Ring. In addition to pushing the 'Stang to 200 mph, the Ford team also tested the muscle car's braking capabilities by performing full ABS stops.
It may be hard to believe, but the 220.5 mph achieved by the Hennessey CTS-V in this video is not the car's actual top speed. The Texas-based tuner says that its Cadillac can hit 242 mph. The reason why it didn't hit 242 in this clip was because the driver ran out of road. Right...
Not all runs of 200 mph-plus go as planned. Matt Hagan learned that the hard way when his funny car exploded during the NHRA 4-Wide National Qualifiers. Hagan's car was totaled, but he walked away uninjured.
