Fastest cars on the planet - I

In celebration of the Bugatti Veyron's remarkable new 268mph production car speed record, and the announcement that the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid will be going into production, MSN Cars has rounded up 30 of the fastest cars on the planet.

200mph used to be a magical benchmark - a rare, tantalising thing. Yet all 30 of the cars on the list will cheerfully hop the double-ton as required, leaving few or many fingernail imprints in the steering wheel along the way.

Some of the entries are obvious supercar superheroes, but others you might find more surprising. So take a look and leave your thoughts in the comments - are there any 200mph chariots you think we've missed out?
