Acceleration is one of the biggest thrills that a car can bring, and with a number of manufacturers now utilising the instant power delivery of the electric motor, a sub-3 second 0-60 mph time is now almost commonplace in the upper echelons of the performance car world. The fastest accelerating cars are still pushing at the boundaries though, with manufacturers continuing to place value on out-pacing their rivals in a straight drag race. Many elements change how fast the car can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h). Tires, elevation above sea level, weight of the driver, testing equipment, weather conditions and surface of testing track all influence these times.
Here are the top 10 fastest accelerating cars in the world.
