Fastest 0-100 km/h Production Cars Today

Acceleration is undoubtedly one of the most exciting factors that a car brings. There is a difference between the fastest car and the quickest car. Fastest refers to the acceleration of the car, and quickest refers to the maximum speed of the car. In the last decade, many cars have been launched with the capability to deliver 0-100 km/h under 3 seconds. In fact, this time has become almost commonplace, especially when it comes to the uppermost echelon of the fastest accelerating cars in the world.
