Top 10 Fastest Accelerating Cars in the World
This list is about top 10 fastest accelerating cars. One way to determine a car’s speed power is to look at its acceleration. Common standards for comparing acceleration between cars are to examine the 0-60 mph acceleration times or 0-100 km/h times of different cars. For this discussion we will be using 0-60 mph acceleration times.
