All cars can be divided on the fastest and fastest accelerating cars. Keep in mind that 0-60 mph time is more important than the top speed, due to the fact you can accelerate faster ion shorter distances. The latest cars offer better times and they have a higher top speed. On the other side, they have special systems that allow them to reach 60 mph as soon as possible. The main ‘’enemy’’ of the acceleration is the weight of a car. In addition, all-wheel drive cars usually have a better 0-60 mph time, due to the fact they have better traction and they can better send all the power on a road. In any case, here are the fastest 0-60 mph cars on the planet.
