10 Fastest Accelerating Cars: The 0-60 MPH Kings Of The Road



When you think about it, the fastest cars in the world might steal the spotlight, but let’s be real – it’s the ones that can blast from 0 to 60 mph in a flash that really get your heart racing. Like, who wouldn’t prefer a rollercoaster that zooms to 60 mph in three seconds over one that takes a whole minute to hit 100 mph?

Just so you know, our list has some of the fastest production cars in the world, but it’s not all about top speeds. We’re also throwing in some surprises with cars that aren’t speed demons. Plus, there are a bunch with similar times, so we’re picking the most awesome ones.

No more waiting, let’s hit the road.

10. McLaren P1 – 2.8 seconds

McLaren P1 - 2.8 seconds

The McLaren P1, a legendary hypercar, may only snag the 10th spot on our list, but it’s still a beast. It dashes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds! Impressive, right? But hey, even regular supercars these days are catching up. Take the Ferrari 812 Superfast, for example. It matches the P1’s 0-60 speed and keeps on trucking to a top speed of 211 mph. That’s fast! Sure, the McLaren edges it out by a mere 6 mph, but times are changing. With better electric tech and smarter handling, tomorrow’s hybrid hypercars will leave yesterday’s legends in the dust.

9. McLaren 750S – 2.7 seconds

McLaren 750S - 2.7 seconds

The McLaren 750S rolled onto the scene this year, packing more power than its predecessor, the 720S, but not quite as much as the 765LT that inspired its longtail design.

Yep, you guessed it – still rocking that trusty 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, but now pumping out 740 horses, a bump of 30 from before. That’s enough to rocket you from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 2.7 seconds. And trust us, if you’ve never experienced the thrill of a McLaren, don’t knock it ’til you try it – we’re still trying to locate our eyeballs after our last pedal-to-the-metal adventure in a Mac.

Speaking of speedy, let’s give a nod to the new BAC Mono single-seater road car. Clocking in with a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds, it’s a real speed demon, even if it’s not technically a race car (we’re sticking to road cars for this roundup).

8. Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – 2.6 seconds

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 - 2.6 seconds

You know how we just can’t resist talking about those roaring V8 engines? Well, they’re becoming a rare sight these days, especially in the fastest cars out there. But hey, let’s not get too sentimental just yet. Picture this: a mighty 5.5-liter V8 engine, no turbocharging, just raw power, pushing out 670 horses. And it’s not just about the muscle, it’s paired with an eight-speed double-clutch gearbox that sends all that power straight to the rear wheels, launching the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.

Now, if you’re more into all-wheel drive and turbochargers, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is your go-to. Slap on the Sport Chrono package, and you’ve got yourself a nimble yet super speedy ride. But hey, quality comes at a price, right?

7. Koenigsegg Jesko – 2.5 seconds

You know that super-fast car, the Jesko Absolut? It’s crazy how its streamlined design doesn’t really matter until you hit crazy speeds. Both the Absolut and its racing-focused sibling can hit 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds! And get this: their engine revs up faster than any other in the world. It goes from idle to 7,800 rpm in a blink, reaching its max speed quicker than it took the Lexus LFA, another speedy car, to hit its peak rpm.

But let’s refocus. Both the McLaren Solus GT and the Lamborghini Revuelto can reach 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. That’s lightning-fast!

6. Ferrari SF90 Stradale – 2.4 seconds

Ferrari SF90 Stradale - 2.4 seconds

Electric power is back in the spotlight, and this time it’s in another sleek Italian supercar: the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. Yep, it’s got electric motors not just at the back but also up front. So, it’s packing some serious juice for an extra boost.

So, officially, this Italian stallion claims it can hit 60 in 2.4 seconds. But hold onto your hats! Car & Driver tested it and found it blasting to 60 in just 2 flat. That’s quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder, believe it or not. And hey, with the new SF90 XX twins on the horizon, who knows how fast they’ll go!

And for those who prefer a different vibe, there’s the Taycan Turbo S, also hitting 60 in just 2.4 seconds.

5. Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport – 2.3 seconds

Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport - 2.3 seconds

Well, a Bugatti Chiron is a must-have on any list of supercars, right? But this one, the Pur Sport, it’s got some special tweaks that really earn it a spot. They’ve lightened it up, stiffened the suspension, and put on these super sticky tires. Plus, they’ve tinkered with the gears, so it’s even quicker off the line than the regular Chiron. They say it can do 0-60 in under 2.3 seconds, which is seriously fast. And get this, it can drift too! Sure, the Super Sport might be faster in a straight line, but when it comes to blasting off the line, the Pur Sport takes the cake.

Oh, and here’s something wild: the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon matches that 0-60 time of 2.3 seconds, and that’s without any fancy rollout tricks. Add that in, and it drops to a mind-blowing 2.1 seconds, beating out even the Tesla Model S Plaid and the Bugatti we talked about earlier.

4. Porsche 918 Spyder – 2.2 seconds

Porsche 918 Spyder - 2.2 seconds

Do you know the Porsche 918 Spyder? Well, they say it does 0-60 in “less than 2.8 seconds,” but guess what? Independent tests, like the one by Car & Driver, show it’s actually around 2.2 seconds.

Remember, this car’s been around for a decade. Nowadays, if you want something faster, you’re probably looking at electric cars or those not meant for regular streets, like the Radford 62-2 Pikes Peak. Back then, the Bugatti Veyron and the 918 were among the quickest, and guess what? They’re still pretty darn fast today.

3. Lucid Air Sapphire – 1.89 seconds

Lucid Air Sapphire - 1.89 seconds

Lucid Motors said their new car, the high-performance Air Sapphire, goes 0-60 mph in under two seconds. Now, they’re saying it’s 1.89 seconds. Also, it does the quarter-mile in 8.95 seconds.

Remember, these times are on a prepared surface. Still, for a luxury sedan that handles well, going from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds is impressive no matter the conditions.

It’s the fastest four-door car we’ve got, leaving even some top supercars in the dust. Packing a punch with 1,234 horsepower and hitting 205 mph, it’s both speed and luxury wrapped in one, and the price? A cool $249,000, without extras.

2. Pininfarina Battista – 1.79 seconds

Pininfarina Battista - 1.79 seconds

Pininfarina and Rimac have been going head-to-head in speed lately, kinda like rivals on a race track. They’re both offering similar cars, but there are some important distinctions between them, which is why they’re not both at the top.

With the Battista, four electric motors are pushing out a whopping 1,877 horsepower. It clocked a speedy 1.79-second acceleration time at the Dubai Autodrome. But in a drag race with our top three, factors like weather, reaction time, and tires could shake up the results every time.

1. Rimac Nevera – 1.74 seconds

Rimac Nevera - 1.74 seconds

Alright folks, get ready for the big reveal: the Rimac Nevera takes the crown as the fastest car going 0 to 60! Packing a whopping 1,877 horsepower and 1,740 pound-feet of torque, this electric powerhouse zooms to 60 in just 1.74 seconds.

Can you believe it? Not only did the Rimac Nevera smash the record for 0 to 60 speed, but it also went on a spree, breaking 22 other speed and acceleration records in just one day! And here’s a fun fact: while your Tesla might need a breather after some drag racing, the Nevera keeps its cool. Plus, it’s not just a straight-line speedster; this baby handles corners like a pro. Oh, and did I mention it tops out at 258 mph?

By the way, there’s this McMurtry Speirling, even faster at 1.5 seconds, but it’s not street legal… yet. Keep an eye out for that!

Bonus: Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 says it can go 0-60 in 1.66 seconds, making it the fastest.

But here’s the thing: they got that time with some extra help. They used special tires and a smooth track. So, even though the Challenger SRT Demon 170 might pull it off in perfect conditions, it’s not something you’ll see on regular streets.

It’s pretty neat that the fastest regular car isn’t even mid-engined. We just wish Dodge would be straight with us about it.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170

The list of speedsters isn’t what you’d expect. Gone are the days when the Nissan GT-R Nismo and Mercedes-AMG dominated. Even the Tesla Model S Plaid, breaking records, faces skepticism in real-world tests. So, while it’s exciting, take those claims with a pinch of salt.

You know, electric cars are moving fast, just like how they zoom from 0 to 60 in no time. While we might feel nostalgic for the sound of engines, it’s reassuring that many speedy cars still need a good old-fashioned ignition.
