Undeniably, acceleration is the most thrilling characteristic of performance supercars and hypercars. It should be noted that the terms "fastest car" and "quickest car" are distinct from each other. Over the past ten years, numerous vehicles have been introduced with the ability to achieve 0-60 mph times in less than three seconds. This feat has become increasingly common, particularly among the top tier of the fastest accelerating cars globally. Car manufacturers use the 0-60 measurement as the benchmark to gauge the performance capabilities of their most powerful creations.
Obtaining the highest top speed is an easier feat than attaining the fastest acceleration. This is due to the fact that a sizable engine and forced induction have a significant impact on overall top speed. Conversely, ensuring optimal grip and immediately delivering power is the common challenge that every manufacturer faces. Automotive engineers continuously strive to improve their craft by researching and developing cutting-edge electronics, lightweight components, tire compounds, and high-performance technologies for even swifter acceleration.
Here we’ve gathered together the 25 fastest 0-60 production cars of all time. Keep in mind that our list of the fastest 0-60 cars is exclusive to street-legal cars, which are also considered production vehicles.
