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.

The Americans and their big engines seemed to have thrown a spanner in the works with Tesla "super-accelerator" electrics. Europeans are crying in their bier!

Honorable Mention: 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 (7.0 litre for you Euros) 485 H.P and 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, being handicapped by 1960s vintage bias-ply tires. And yes, it was quite adept I getting around corners and braking.

Lastly: Let us not forget the American Fighter Jet being launched off an Aircraft Carrier. 0-60 in well under 1.0 seconds.

1965 Shelby Cobra 427 SC – 0-60 3.7 seconds … yawn inducing still?

0 to 60 is the dumbest rating for current super cars; a hold over from 50s -70s archaic cars. 0 to 100 would be a credible rating for new cars.

The Ford RS200 Evolution could do 0-60 in 3.07 seconds in 1986, utterly wrecking half of the cars on this list.

I wouldn't really call most of the European cars available for public sale. The DEMON is the quickest only one average Joe could walk into a dealership and actually drive away with. So be more realistic.

What about the Ariel Atom ?

2.0L Honda engine rockets that lightweight chassis to 60 in under 2.6 secs. And its road legal.
