Fastest Production Cars by Acceleration

Which car is the fastest off the line? It is important!

So, lets have a ranking of unmodified production cars. The ranking is done by following our eligibility and ranking criteria. The data published here are sourced from recognized trusted sources. And yeah, this ranking is getting updates whenever available.

The eligibility criteria is a seven scale measurement of a car’s eligibility to appear in our ranking. The scale is: 1) built primarily for retail sales to customers for their personal use only, 2) the original manufacturer have already produced at least 25 units, 3) fitted with original manufacturer-supplied standard road tires, 4) must be officially certified as street legal in their market, 5) any kind of modification to the original car is not allowed, 6) must have the 0 to 60 miles per hour time of at least 2.7 seconds, and 7) have enough data available to comply with our ranking criteria. This scale makes sense, right?

The ranking criteria is very simple. Shortest to 0 to 60 miles per hour ranks the highest. The key deciding factor was the independently “tested time”. Data taken from the manufacturers, noted as the “factory time”, worked as a tie breaker. However, if the factory times and the test times are purely identical, the model year was taken into consideration for appreciating the engineering achievement. The older the model, the higher the ranking. If any car has no independently tested time, its ranking became as terrible as a 2 months old cookie.
