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.

    • @Super One If 2.3 seconds is not with rollout, how come no one can get below 2.5 seconds without rollout?

      JotaSE30JotaSE303 ימים לפני
    • @JotaSE30 Again, Tesla doesnt claim times with roll out, Nor did they claim 2.1s, Conservative times by everyone except a few are claimed without it, And being conservative, Only Dodge claimed 2.3, And that time has never been done in any test

      Super OneSuper One3 ימים לפני
    • @Super One Exactly, and everyone is getting the factory claimed 2.3 sec 0-60 for the Model S WITH ROLLOUT. No one is getting 2.1. So without rollout it is 2.5 sec. Porsche claims 2.5 0-60 for Taycan Turbo S, and it is also getting 2.3 in the magazines. SO TESLA USES ROLLOUT ON THEIR OFFICIAL NUMBERS. Are we done now?

      JotaSE30JotaSE303 ימים לפני
    • @JotaSE30 The fact is the Demon was never tested n published, Because Dodge knew there bullshit wouldn't fly, Yet how many Tesla times are tested?....Alot, Fact is a Demon doesn't get ANYwhere nears its bullshit claimed times.

      Super OneSuper One3 ימים לפני
    • @JotaSE30 Bruh, All American magazine publication tests use rollout, Its not the manufacturer who does it, Its the publication testers who do, Every cars 0 to xxx you see tested is done with rollout, Even some European and Australian ones use it, It simply deducts .2s off the 60, Cont..

  • The Britons have a problem with Koenigsegg. Wonder why? Earlier, the Top Gear zombies used to sell the British canisters with absolute impunity. Now, this guy, who seemed a bit sane, is again missed out the Swedish manufacturer quite conveniently. BRAVO.

  • He for sure skipped a lot at the end, including that 918 spyder is a few tenths of second faster. The 918 spyder, tesla and demon are almost tied, but are separated by a few tenths of a second. 918 being 1st and tesla 2nd.

  • I might be being picky, but you did say the fastest road car top speed. The Sledgehammer Callaway Corvette held the record from 1988. The Callaway's 898-horsepower 772 pound-feet of torque C4 went 254.76 mph, 0-60 3.9 seconds, 1/4 mile 10.6 seconds. They had special tyres made as rear wheel drive was a problem with all that power, better traction would lower the 0-60. It was a one off but you could order one from Callaway and it was fully street legal. Now there is the Devel Sixteen with models of 2000hp to 5000hp. The car has been made and used on the road. Top Speed 560 km/h or 348 mph 0-60 mph 1.8 seconds 0-100 mph 2.2 seconds 0-310 mph Under 50 seconds

  • How long is this British myth that American cars cannot handle turns going to persist? It's been disproved over and over and over, yet there is always some British guy saying it again. Up until a few years ago, there wasn't a real British car in the top 25 of production Nurburgring lap times, but there are 4-5 American cars there. I guess that is why British guys always had to claim all of Europe when talking about cars for so long? lol

  • 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)

    • 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
