1987 Ferrari F40 - 202.687mph
Maranaello wasn't going to laze around drinking espresso while the Germans stole its record, so made sure the F40 - which had 38bhp more and weighed 250kg less than the 959 - would nail the double-ton. Plus two and a bit. Making it officially the first production car to go faster than EVOLUTION.
OK, so the F40's paint is so thin you can see the carbonfibre weave through it, and you don't even get proper doorhandles. But it was a supercar par excellence, an intoxicating blend of power, wings and Conga ability.
