The ten fastest roadsters you can buy
Celebrate summer's arrival with the most efficient ways to cool down... in the world

1. Hennessey Venom GT Spider: VMAX 275mph
The fastest car... in the world. Unofficially, anyway. Guinness stipulate that to get the title the car must do two runs in opposite directions of the same bit of tarmac, and Hennessey only managed one. Never mind, the Venom is mind-bogglingly fast; it's loud, it's raw and it's the anti-Veyron. No complex quad-turbo configurations, no fancy four wheel drive, just a big engine, light body and the steady roar of your adrenalin in your ears.
