For some entertainment, we’ve got an entire list of makes and models, representing specific 0-60 times + quarter mile times
From brands like Acura, Bugatti, Nissan, to lesser known brands like MG, Proton, and Westfield.
Quick intro for 0-60 times: Some of things to truly keep in mind is the ability to pull off the best 0 to 60 time isn’t necessarily easy. One must be on level ground, at near zero elevation, little if any wind resistance, all fluids topped off properly, only one average weight passenger, properly inflated tires, all internal specs of the vehicle in top condition, proper manual gear shifts, proper launch, and proper octane fuel.
When all those things (and them some) are factored in, you can do an official 0-60 time.
Being a site about vehicle maintenance, for those performance junkies that are curious as to what the best 0-60 times are for their current or aspiring vehicle, we’ve put together this guide to really help you out.
(0-60 times) In the automotive world, 0-60 times (0-62 in Europe) are a way to measure the quickness of a vehicle from a dead stop. Primarily, automotive journals use this to compare vehicle side by side in terms of quickness. While in most cases if a vehicle does a quicker 0-60 mph time, it often times will top out at a higher number also. On the flip side, in electric vehicles such as the Tesla, 0-60 times are often MUCH quicker, but top out at a much slower speed.
Its a good measuring tool for all types of vehicles, but its by no means an exact science. No matter how much precautionary steps the testers take, results are hard to keep constant. In this chart, there’s a wide variety of times, ranging from professional drivers, to “self-proclaimed professionals” who have managed to set a 0-60 time where big time journals never had a chance to (in vehicles like the Toyota Corolla, Geo Metro, Chevrolet Cavalier etc…).
(1/4 mile times) While 0 to 60 times are for testing purposes, primarily done at big automotive journals, quarter mile times are that too but also for bragging rights.
You’ve heard those guys… “my car runs a 12.8 in a quarter mile…”I ran an 11-second quarter mile in my Mustang..” ) and so on, and so on. These quarter mile times are for drag racers, bragging rights, and indicators up-front that “my car is that quick, bring it on!”.
Closing note: We’ve dug deep into the interweb to find your the absolute best 0 to 60 times for each manufacturer and its models. While we don’t have 100% of all the world’s cars on here, we DO have the most common vehicles that you’d search for. So, without any more delay, enjoy the above chart of the most current 0 to 60 vehicle times.
