^ If you are looking for a car that has the top horsepower, speed, acceleration, and price, the 2007 Bugatti 16/4 Veyron is definitely what you are looking for.

.With a 0 to 60 time of 2.4 seconds, the Veyron was the fastest legal street car between the years 2005 and 2007. Once back in the Top Gear studio, May was asked by co-presenter Jeremy Clarkson what the Veyron felt like to drive at 407 km/h (253 mph), May replied that it was "totally undramatic", and very stable at speed.^ But with a top speed of "just" 253 mph, it’s not quite the fastest car on Earth.
