    Apparently, the new Koenigsegg Azera -R has broken the 0-300-0 (kph) record and supposedly may be able to break the Veyron's top speed record. Very impressive! Entertaining brief article here:

    If we are talking Veyron's, he's got one and one on order.

    For the record:

    yes, SSC beat the original veyron, but the current Veyron SuperSport will go 268 while the SSC topped out at about 258.

    While it's possible that the Koenigsegg will beat the Veyron SS, they still need to find a road/track to test it on. Not an easy feat. i got a chance to talk to Christian Von Koenigsegg at the Quail gathering this year and he said that the only plausible place they could set a new record is a public highway in Kazakhstan.

    So in all, yes Bugatti has the fastest proven production car, but as soon as Koenigsegg is able to test top speed, there may be a different story.

    There are probably some good spots through the midwest on i80 and i90 that could be used if they would ever allow closure of an interstate.
