    How many parsecs does it do to the gallon? And can Barry Allen outrun it? – user46249 Jun 29 '15 at 20:33

    Sublight or hyperspace? – Boelabaal Jun 30 '15 at 17:13

The Aing-Tii monks have instant ships. (In the EU / Legends).

"Their star drive is considerably different from ours. As you may have noticed from the battle. Instead of using the usual hyperspace travel, their ships are able to make an instantaneous jump to whatever point they wish." ―Jorj Car'das

I believe this makes them faster than even that old tired YT-1300 piece of junk called the Millennium Falcon.

Lando describes the Millennium Falcon as

..the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

This could be read two ways, it IS the fastest ship in the galaxy, or it is the fastest one that is also a piece of junk. For all we know, brand new ships way out class the Millennium Falcon, but for an older ship, it is the fastest.
