Default Top 10 Fastest Cars to Roar From Showrooms in 2005

If you're willing to pay for it, you can have a rocket ship mounted on wheels. Or you can buy an automobile that rolled off an assembly line, and still get to where you need to go in record time. You can pay a lot too, up to $440,000 for the Porsche Carrera GT. No matter their price, this list of the 10 fastest ranks 2005 model year production cars. That is, models that were mass produced from standardized designs, though their production runs tend to be small.

You could arrange the list differently if you chose to measure speed as top-end performance. We picked zero-to-60-mph acceleration speed because it’s a common measure of a car’s performance and because it's legal.

Kelley Blue Book compiled the ranking. ForbesAutos.com filled in the detail by using our own material, such as base MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for pricing, as well as information garnered from manufacturers and gleaned from enthusiast Web sites like rssportscars.com. See zero-to-60-mph times, prices and photos by clicking on each model name.

The Fastest Cars to Roar From Showrooms in 2005
1. Lamborghini Murciélago
2. Porsche Carrera GT
3. Ford GT
4. Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG
5. Ferrari F430
6. Ferrari 575 Maranello
7. Porsche 911 Carrera S
8. Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution RS
9. Lamborghini Gallardo
10. Chevrolet Corvette Z51
What? No Viper?! Wait until 2006 and I bet the SRT-10 Coupe will offer something better.

Amen to that. I'm hearing for the 2008-2009ish year and so forth, Dodge will offer it or something greater. A Ferrari killer [sm=coolness.gif]

Haha. I wouldn't plan on that ever happening. The Italians won't let some POS viper outdo a Ferrari for long.

As far as that list goes, the Viper just wasn't mentioned. It would most likely be #4.
The Viper is faster than all Ferraris except the Enzo which costs way more. Just wait until the Viper ACR comes out.

It all comes down to terminology, do they mean fastest as in top speed or fastest as in 0-60 MPH or 1/4 mile? This can make all the difference in the world as to the cars and their order on the list.

That's a good point. They did this one for 0-60, which is interesting. I think the Lambo could probably hang on the top speed list as well though.

The Saleen S7 is the fastest car out of a showroom for top speed and acceleration, I didn't see it on the list. The Corvette Z51 shouldn't be on there, it ran a 12.7 and could only do around 180mph, not that I have anything against Corvettes or anything. The Ford GT, Ferrari Enzo, and Porsche Carrera GT are all faster than the Lamorghini in the quarter mile, way faster. here's what I have found on the internet, my friend and I have been fighting about this for two years because my favorite car is number one and his is number two, so believe me, I've done my research. Actually, his car was beating mine by 2mph in the quarter mile until this year. He's pissed.

Car / 0-60 / quarter / top speed

1. Saleen S7 / 2.8 / 10.7 @ 141 / 240+mph
(7.0L V8 2TC - 750HP - 700TQ - $555K - 2,750lbs)

2. Koenigsegg CC8S / 3.4 / 10.8 @ 138 / 242mph
(4.7L V8 SC - 655HP - 553TQ - $350K - 2,579lbs)

3. Ferrari Enzo / 3.1 / 10.9 @ 136 / 218mph
(6.0L V12 NA - 660HP - 484TQ - $660K - 2,766lbs)

4. Porsche Carrera GT / 3.2 / 11.1 @ 138 / 208mph
(5.7L V10 NA - 605HP - 435TQ - $440K - 3,050lbs)

5. Ford GT / 3.3 / 11.2 @ 128 / 205gov-mph
(5.4L V8 SC - 550HP - 525TQ - $156K - 3,150lbs)

6. Lamborghini Murcielago / 3.6 / 11.4 @ 127 / 210+mph
(6.2L V12 NA - 580HP - 485TQ - $285K - 3,638lbs)

7. Dodge Viper SRT-10 / 3.9 / 11.6 @ 125 / 190+mph
(8.3L V10 NA - 500HP - 525TQ - $83K - 3,385lbs)

Of course!

I'd rather have a Diablo than a Murcielago...
