Here we are going to see some of the fastest things in the world.Read and Enjoy..:)
#1 Fastest Car in the World
Shelby Super Cars Ultimate Aero
Shelby SuperCars Inc. (SSC) is an American automobile manufacturer founded in 1998 by owner Jerod Shelby (no relation to car designer Carroll Shelby). The company is based in West Richland, near the Tri-Cities, Washington and specializes in the production of supercars.
They built the SSC Aero, equipped with a twin turbocharged pushrod engined V8s. Its turbocharged 6.35 litres (388 cu in) V8 produces 1,287 bhp (960 kW; 1,305 PS), which makes it the most powerful production car in the world, beating the Bugatti Veyron’s 987 bhp (736 kW; 1,001 PS). On September 13, 2007, the “Ultimate Aero” took the title of fastest production car from the Bugatti Veyron, which has since been reclaimed by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Ultimate Aero has a top speed of 414 km/h (257 mph).

#5 Fastest Man in the world
Usain St. Leo Bolt, OJ, C.D., is a Jamaican sprinter and a three-time World and Olympicgold medalist. He is the world record and Olympic record holder in the 100 metres, the 200 metres and (along with his teammates) the4 x 100 metres relay. He is the reigning World and Olympic champion in these three events.
Bolt distinguished himself with a 200 m gold medal at the 2002 World Junior Championships, making him the competition’s youngest-ever gold medalist. In 2004, at the CARIFTA Games, he became the first junior sprinter to run the 200 m in under 20 seconds with a time of 19.93 s, breaking the previous world junior record held by Roy Martin by two-tenths of a second. He turned professional in 2004, and although he competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics, he missed most of the next two seasons due to injuries. In 2007, he surpassed Don Quarrie’s 200 m Jamaican record with a run of 19.75 s.
His 2008 season began with his first world record performance—a 100 m world record of 9.72 s—and culminated in world and Olympic records in both the 100 m and 200 m events at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. He ran 9.69 s for the 100 m and 19.30 s in the 200 m, and also set a 4×100 m relay record of 37.10 s with the Jamaican team. This made him the first man to win three sprinting events at a single Olympics since Carl Lewis in 1984, and the first man to set world records in all three at a single Olympics. The following year he further lowered his own 100 m and 200 m world records to 9.58 s and 19.19 s respectively at the 2009 World Championships. This made him the first man to hold both the 100 and 200 m world and Olympic titles at the same time.
His 2009 record breaking margin over 100 m is the highest since the start of digital time measurements. His achievements in sprinting have earned him the media nickname “Lightning Bolt”, and awards including the IAAF World Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, and Laureus Sportsman of the Year.
#6 Fastest Plane in the World
The X-43 is an unmanned experimental hypersonic aircraft with multiple planned scale variations meant to test various aspects ofhypersonic flight. It was part of NASA’s Hyper-X program. It has set several airspeed records for jet-propelled aircraft.
A winged booster rocket with the X-43 itself at the tip, called a “stack”, is launched from a carrier plane. After the booster rocket (a modified first stage of the Pegasus rocket) brings the stack to the target speed and altitude, it is discarded, and the X-43 flies free using its own engine, a scramjet.
#7 Fastest Train in the World
Shanghai Maglev Train
The Shanghai Maglev Train or Shanghai Transrapid (literally “Shanghai Magnetic Levitation Demonstration Operation Line”) is a magnetic levitation train, or maglev line that operates in Shanghai, China. It is notable for being the first commercial high-speed magnetic levitation line in the world.
During a non-commercial test run on 12 November 2003, a maglev train achieved a Chinese record speed of 5,001 km/h (3,107 mph). The train line was designed to connect Shanghai Pudong International Airport and the outskirts of central Pudong where passengers could interchange to the Shanghai Metro to continue their trip to the city center.
Construction of the line began in 1 March 2001 and public commercial service commenced on 1 January 2004. The top operational commercial speed of this train is 431 km/h (268 mph), making it the world’s fastest train in regular commercial services since its opening in 2004, faster than previous record holder at 367 km/h (228 mph) with TGV in France and also faster than the latest CRH conventional wheel train in China at 350 km/h (217 mph). The top speed of 431 km/h (268 mph) is also faster than the top speed of any production automobile (except for the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which has roughly the same top speed), Formula One car, or MotoGP super bikes.
The train set and tracks were built by Siemens. Two commercial maglev systems had predated the Shanghai system—the Birmingham Maglev in the United Kingdom and the Berlin M-Bahn—both were low-speed operations and had closed before the opening of the Shanghai Maglev Train.
#8 Fastest Bike in the world
Toma Hawk (Not a Legal Bike)
The Tomahawk was a Dodge concept vehicle introduced at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. It had futuristic and unusual design, featuring the 500 hp (370 kW) 8.3 L (506.5 cu in) V10 SRT10 engine from the Dodge Viper. The vehicle has two front wheels and two rear wheels, making it a kind of motorized quadricycle rather than a typical motorcycle.
The above image is 2011 edition of tomahawk,I dont know about the recent specification but it achieves a top speed over 675 mph.This bike is not legal to ride on roads
This super heavy weight is crafted to intimidate and destroy all competition. That does not mean that you can carry this on to the road as you would never be able to obtain a license for it. So they are nothing but rolling sculptures and that is a heavy price to pay for something that you can’t take out and flaunt. With a top speed of well over 675 mph, this thing will blur everything around!

#9 Fastest Missile in the World
Speed: Mach 2.8 to 3.0
BrahMos is a stealth supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land. It is a joint venture between Republic of India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroeyenia who have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited. It is the world’s fastest cruise missile in operation.
The name BrahMos is a portmanteau formed from the names of two rivers, the Brahmaputra of India and the Moskva of Russia. The missile travels at speeds of Mach 2.8 to 3.0. It is about three-and-a-half times faster than the USA’s subsonic Harpoon cruise missile. An Air launched variant is also planned which is expected to come out in 2012 and will make India the only country with supersonic missiles in all the defence forces. A hypersonic version of the missile is also presently under development with speed of Mach 7 to boost aerial fast strike capability. It is expected to be ready by 2016.
|Launch Weight:||3000.00 kg|
|Payload:||200-300 kg HE or submunitions|
|Propulsion:||Ramjet w/ solid booster|
|Range:||300 or 500 km|
|Guidance:||INS, GPS, active and passive radar|
BrahMos II is a stealth hypersonic cruise missile that is being currently under development that can fly at Mach 7.BrahMos II land variant design has been completed and 4 Land to Land test variants are ready to be tested.
Rest of the variants will be tested in the successive years of 2012-13, design is projected to be completed by October 2011 and will arm the Project 15B destroyers of the Indian Navy. In Russian navy project 21956 Destroyers are most likely to be equipped with BrahMos II.
