Acceleration is undoubtedly one of the most exciting factors that a car brings. Here we want to make it clear that the fastest car and the fastest car are two different terms. Over the past decade, many cars have been launched with the ability to deliver 0-60 in 3 seconds. In fact, this time has become almost common, especially when it comes to the top of the world’s fastest cars. 0-60 is the gold standard that car manufacturers use to measure the performance of their vehicles.
It is important to note that achieving maximum top speed is easier than achieving the fastest acceleration. Because a huge engine plays the most important role in terms of top speed. On the other hand, it is difficult to maximize traction and reduce power immediately. Automotive engineers and specialists continue to work with advanced electronics, lightweight materials, tire compounds and high-performance technology to achieve faster acceleration than ever before.
Here we have assembled the 25 fastest 0-60 production cars of all time. Note that our list of the fastest 0-60 vehicles is exclusive to road-legal vehicles, which are also considered as production vehicles.
