The QUICKEST 0-60mph cars of every YEAR since the 1970s

9 501
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.

well lets just say the title of your video should say "production cars" as we all know 1.9 is a WRC standard for 0-60 just saying.

don't care for electric cars and they aren't as eco friendly as everyone seems to think, that's just the media talking and what "THEY" want you to thin plus electric motors will always be faster than a combustion engine building it's rpm up not really fun comparing the two.

The Ultimate Aero made 1,183 horsepower according to them. I think Top Gear found the horsepower to be 798 but it was determined that a rock had gotten lodged in a turbo system and had caused it to lose a lot of boost pressure.
Of course, in light of recent events, there is room for some skepticism in that narrative...

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
