If you read our fastest 0-60 accelerating production cars we noted that the list was dominated by 4 wheel drive electric wizardry.┬áIf however you change the benchmark – go from say 0-60 to the 1/4 mile. It is a very, very different story.

Why? weight.

With government legislation on how high your front headlight needs to be so Mary in her Toyota Prius can see your bright red LaFerrari – lightweight supercars are not so lightweight anymore. A Lamborghini Huracan is about the same weight as Mary’s Prius. It looks it too.

So in the interest of fairness and to tip our caps to engineers with a wrench and not a laptop here’s the Ten fastest 1/4 mile production cars.

Rules:
– Must be a production car
– Road Legal
– Street Tyres
– Verified Times – This is important. Only Verified times by reliable sources make it.
