The QUICKEST 0-60mph cars of every YEAR since the 1970s
On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
When it comes to measuring a car’s performance, there’s always one stat which will help give you a good indication of how powerful it is: the 0 - 60mph time!
So that got us thinking… What are the quickest cars EVER to hit 60mph in ridiculously short times? Well, we’ve been researching, and we’ve come up with a list of the top 10 fastest accelerating cars to hold this title! And just to clarify, we’re not only talking about new cars, or wild one-offs which you couldn’t even drive on the road. We’re focusing solely on mass-produced cars!
But which do you think takes the top spot? Or have we missed something off the list you think needs to be here? Let us know in the comments!

    Mat hasn't forgotten about the Porsche 918 Spyder! Yes, that car has done 0-60 in 2.1 seconds, but that time was measured with a one-foot rollout (where the car was rolling for 30cm before it launched). It doesn't sound like much, but it really helps it put its power down and makes a big difference to the 0-60mph time! The times on Mat's list are all from ZERO to 60mph.

      Not a single word about Koenigsegg wich have beaten Veyron before Chiron exsisted. On Monday, September 23rd, a Koenigsegg Regera accelerated from 0 to 400 km/h and back to 0 in 31.49 seconds at Råda airfield close to the town of Lidköping. And now the Jesko wich outperform anything, who cares about tesla? If you want to be the fastest Its Jesko or Regera nothing else. if you got the skills or monye is a different thing. The 918 are just one of the cars said not to be included but omg what a car.

      Also the Bugatti Veyron never had 1001 horse power... It had 1001 German PS. Which is something like 987 HP.

    • Janusha

      That SSC Ultimate Aero... Inspite of all the hype and Guinness world record claims, it never actually went into the record books as the worlds fastest production car. Because it quickly turned out to be just a home built kit-car loosely based on a 1990s Lamborghini Diablo replica kit. Steel tubular chassis welded in his own garage by some friends and every bit of engineering and tech picked out of other, already existing cars. Actual car reviewers that actually drove one are hard to come by. But I remember one saying it smelled of glue and gasoline and had all the fit, finish and ride quality of a Chinese rickshaw. So yeah... Kit-car. They built some 16-17 of them before going bust. Most of them to crazy arabs in the middle east. People who just ordered the car without ever seeing it in person. It was dreadful and ONLY the ONE car that went fast that ONE time, was able to go that fast. The rest of them had far less power. So there was never any crash testing or emissions. No health & safety, no nothing. And as always with american cars, they make sure it can do 60 in first gear. So they dont waste tenths on gearing. Because with american gearboxes, a shift can take a third of a second on a good day.

    And the great thing about the electric super cars is that when driven "nicely" they get perfectly fine efficiency, unlike ICE cars that will not do well in the mileage department no matter how carefully they're driven. It's a win-win scenario. (Not to mention they cost about a quarter as much to operate)

    • SUPERBOOM777

      @Moreno Kristovan electric cars pass ICE in lots of categories?? I can only think of one: being shit

    • Moreno Kristovan

    • Moreno Kristovan
      Moreno Kristovan

      It's funny when people compare ICE cars to electric cars as if they are equals, electric passes ICE in lots of categories but ICE also passes electric in other categories to, the thing is, ICE had a century+ to innovate while electric technology is still catching up, just wait, there will come a time where electric is able to match or even surpass ICE, I'm waiting for the tesla roadrunner (battery) cells tp be produced, they claim it'll be able to charge from 0% - 100% in 3 minutes, and as we all know, tesla is always underestimating their numbers purposefully, unlike other tech/car companies that like to overestimate

    The classic special edition muscle cars from the 1960s were pretty intense as well. Not sure they actually sold many . . . or any. But the 1965 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 had a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds . . . That was 50 years ago! friggin amazing!

    • zynzy4u

      Have a 67 Catalina and it does 0-60 in 4.1 seconds with the non-performance engine that was widely available at that time. Am not seeing Road Runners with Hemis or a lot of other cars that were faster than many cars shown here. Then I look at like Car and Driver specs and wonder what gives? Back then C&D were given "detuned" cars to slow them down and not injure the eurocars appreciation. Seems like a lot of hornswoggling was going on. Never zero dragged raced several of the early cars named there but, like 10mph punch and such. Never saw tail lights.... take this video with a sack of salt.

    You should have gone back to 1966 and the 427 Shelby Cobra which was the first under 4 second car at 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and this with skinny bias ply tires and no computerized traction control. It also was able to go from 0-100 and back to zero in 14 seconds. I can't imagine what it could do with modern tires, turbo charging, a computer controlled transmission and all the other modern goodies that make cars so fast today. The car weighed 2500 lbs and the 427 produced 485 HP at 6500 RPM and 480 ft-lb of Torque at 3500 RPM.

    • Janusha

      @zynzy4u Oh, I grew up with a father that collected old american musclecars. Which is rare in Europe. And I moved to England to do my university and had a career over there and spent 8 years going around the Northern bit of England in Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotuses that we had as company cars where I worked. I also visited the Pagani, Koenigsegg, Ferrari, Lambo, Lotus... Most supercar companies except Bugatti. I went to Mclaren last year. So Ive seen both side of that fence. American cars used to have the drag-race excuse to lean on. But that race has been lost for... 20 years too. Not only do Nissan, Mclaren, Porsche get the same 600 hp out of HALF the size, they also get the torque, the weight distribution and the emissions better. There is just no competition. And hasnt been for ages. My father has an old musclecar with the same compression rate and numerical values as the latest Viper. So we know not much has happened in the US car industry.

    • zynzy4u

      The "high performance"engines of these pre-1990 sedans such as German cars exhibit their horsepower torque curves versus rpm which look a lot like a very pointed triangle. The American version with the same rated horsepower appears as a much flatter broader curve with the area under that curve being significantly greater. And it is still true, there is no replacement for displacement. We do not see 3 liter V6 engines competing against 6 liter V8 in drag racing because, there is no replacement yet holds very true.

    • Janusha

      @zynzy4u There is no replacement for displacement, they used to say... Seems there is.

    Tesla shouldn't be on this list. The thing is that no one ever manages to do those 0-60 speeds in a Tesla... They're always off way off. While a Porsche 911 Turbo S for example beats it's claimed 0-60 time.. That's also why the Tesla actually looses to 911 in Drag Races. Because it's way slower. Also the 918 Spyder way accelerates faster from 0-60 than the Tesla, even the 911 Turbo S... you can verify it right here on SLtoos where plenty of people have timed them...
