The most powerful winds every recorded in a tornado were 301 mph. This measurement was taken from the F5 tornado that occurred near Oklahoma City on May 3, 1999.

However, this may not have been the strongest tornado that ever occurred. but the most destructive and highest winds in the world Other tornadoes may have been stronger but were never recorded as such because no measurements were taken.
