The world's fastest accelerating cars

Powered by a 310bhp supercharged 2.0-litre Ford engine and featuring a six-speed sequential gearbox, it’s arguably the most extreme Seven ever to wear a number plate.

Its place in this list is a little cheeky, however, as its quoted time of 2.79 seconds is a little too specific (most would round up or down to a tenth of a second), plus it’s a 0-60mph sprint rather than 0-62mph.

9. Ariel Atom 4, McLaren 765LT, Lamborghini Aventador SVJ – 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds

When it comes to hitting 62mph from a standstill in 2.8 seconds, then you’re rather spoiled for choice. There are some staggering choices here.

The Ariel Atom 4, Koenigsegg Regera, Porsche Taycan Turbo S, McLaren 765LT, Radical SR8, Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, Lamborghini Aventador 780-4 Ultimae to name but a few. 

Not only that, but our list of contenders shows that there are several ways to skin a (startled) cat.

The lightweight, track-special vibe is taken care of by the skeletal Ariel Atom 4 and Le Mans-refugee Radical SR8, while at the other end of the spectrum is the luxurious yet ludicrously fast all-electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S.

And then there are the true supercars in the form of the hybrid Koenigsegg Regera, the hardcore McLaren 765 LT and the Lamborghini Aventador, which can hit this target time in both stripped-out SVJ and more civilised 780-4 Ultimae guises.

10. Ferrari 296 GTB, Ferrari F8 Tributo, Lamborghini Huracán Evo, McLaren 720S – 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds

Breaking the three-second barrier is no mean feat, and yet multiple cars can now claim to achieve it.

In fact, the 2.9 second 0-62mph time appears to be something of a common thread, the suspicion being that this is about the limit for a mid-engined, rear-wheel drive car on road-biased tyres.
