I don’t know about you, but for me the maximum speed of a car is what defines its worth. Though we concentrate so much about certain innovations like Tesla’s electrical engine, or design like that of the Lamborghini. But the final test to know if a car is truly worth it is its speed, because if you’re sports car isn’t fast enough, you might as well be driving a minivan.

When it comes to race cars, we don’t award the one who was the most innovative, nor the one that crossed the finish line with the most style. While aerodynamics is applied when it comes to design and innovation comes in when it comes to a better engine, what matters most when it comes to race cars is the speed.

Here’s a little infographic of speed when it comes to race cars, enjoy and hope that one day you get to drive a beast like these.
