If the NBA has Wilt Chamberlains 100 points and the Major League Baseball has Joe Dimaggios 56-game hit streak, the auto industry has the 300-mph top speed. These records and marks were once thought of as impossible to break, but recent advancements in technology and preparation have put them within reach, provided that a perfect storm of events happen. Some automakers have made it their personal missions to be the first ones to emphatically say, and without any speck of controversy, that their car is the first car to legitimately hit a top speed of 300 mph. Depending on who you ask, that record has already been broken, but there are still debates on which model was the first to actually do it. Well, there are five models that are in contention for the record-setting claim, and there are five more that didnt quite hit that mark during their time in the sun.
