What is 0-60?
The time it takes for a vehicle to reach a speed of 60 mph. For this test the vehicle is required to start at a stand still position. The Fastest 0-60 time ever recorded is 1.7 seconds by the Lingenfelter ZO6 Corvette. Unfortunateley none were ever produced for the public. The fastest 0-60 time by a normal production car is the Koenigsegg CC with a time of 3.0 .
the time it takes (Measured in seconds) for something to reach 60
Contrary to popular belief, most cars cannot achieve such speeds. There is only enough fuel in the car for a test run, and the driver is an expert who builds up the revs and then releases at just the right time (too much and he gets some wheel-spain). No consideration is given as to whether the clutch lasts the test.
0-60 times are innacurate, and you should typically add 20% of that time on for a realistic pull-off.
