Initially, cars were used for simple transportation and delivering some heavy shipment. But the automobile industry has come a long way since its humble beginning. Now a days cars are expensive and fast, and when I mean fast they are freakishly fast. They have become so fast that will give you a chill down your spine when you ride in it. Today I will talk about the fast cars which you can buy with money; these machines have transformed themselves into beasts in the past decades. Today I will talk about four fast cars on my list. The speed of cars is given in a descending order.
