I'd hate to see this can of worms open again (for the umpteenth time). Click on the search above and do a quick look up - there are probably two dozen threads in here already on the subject. A lot of them have specs that you can read about. The biggest hurdle you have to decide for yourself is, what does "production car" really mean.

There is an aftermartet production car... I'm sure you know of Hennessey (Dodge's version of SVT).

The Hennessey Venom 800TT does 0-60 in 2.4 seconds. That made it 840 horsepower. 0-100-0 in 9.6 seconds
:biggrin:

Now they have the new Venom 1000 that hits 1124 horsepower, but no times yet.


As for TRUE production...I am not quite sure, but I know there are some in the upper 2s for 0-60.

It can go 140 i believe and is the fastest production car and used for racing. (if anything is wrong tell me)
I hope someone else really know what the fastest car 0 to 60

Don't expect much from Hennessy- he's a conman- his cars fell apart- whichever ones he made that is- since he took peoples cars- said he was working on them- but wasn't. Hennessy has been out of business for a while now. SRT is Dodges SVT.

Actually, the McLaren F1 roadcar completes the run to 60 in 3.2 sec. and the F1 LM completes it in 2.9- but they only made 5 F1 Lms making it void for quickest accelerating prodution car. According to guinness book of world records, the quickest accelerating prodution car is the Ford RS200 at something like 2.8 seconds or something. But what is really amazing is that the RS200 is a 4 cylinder and in road trim has a third the hp. But the car that set the record i believe was in Evolution trim which means it was more likely running in the 600s. They only mad 20 RS200 Evolutions. Just thought you might like to know.

Car_Man28 is spot on with the RS200 Evo.

For a car currently in production try the Caterham R500 in the 0-100-0 (MPH), its the current World Record holder in this trial.

0-30 - 1.6
0-60 - 3.47
0-100 - 7.26
Reation time - 0.31
100-0 - 3.68
0-100-0 - 11.25

Thats for a car on road tyres, to compare a Mclaren F1LM on slick held the record until 2002 with a time of 11.5secs

The Pagani Zonda was tested at the same time as the R500, its times were:

0-30 - 1.84
0-60 - 3.74
0-100 - 7.52
Reaction Time - 0.27
0-100 - 4.05
0-100-0 - 11.84

Check out the range:http://www.caterham.co.uk/

The fastest production, street legal super car to have been tested is the Dauer 962 Le Mans, with a time of 2.6 secs and a top speed of 404kph (just under 250 mph) The time it posted was also accomplished with street tires not slicks. This a production, street legal car that you can conceivably purchase, if you have $800,000+ in change. Being a production car simply means it came out of testing and prototype stage to be produced as road going vehicle to be sold, regaurdless of the number of vehicles produced...making the 962 a production vehicle. Vehicles such as the Hennessey Venom 800TT that claim to do 0-60 in 2.4 seconds are modified cars built by tuners with aftermarket parts, it would be no different than taking a honda putting enough nitrous and aftermarket parts in it to bosst the horse power to around 1000 and achieving sub 3 0-60 times, although it is based off a production car..realistically all that remains the same in these cars is the body design and the chasis. In essence these carse dragsters not street-legal road going cars. It all depends on what type of category of cars you are talking about. However strictly by the numbers the 962 beats the Mclaren F1 lm, Enzo, and claimed speed by Veyron (which has yet to be officially tested) If you would like more info on the specifications, history, and abilities of the Dauer 962..check out the site: http://www.962lm.com/index2.htm

well the fastest limited production car is the ligenfelter 800hp corvette. its the 350 bored out to a 427 then with a twin turbo setup ran a 0-60 time of 1.97 and ran a 9.24 in the quarter with an est. 240mph top end. not bad for a street car.

the model name is misleading. it has maxed at 1197 hp and has these times:
0-60 1.85 sec
0-100 5.46 sec
1/4 mile 8.93 sec. @ 149.65 mph
top speed somewhere in the low 240 MPH range

it is said that the old 800TT was one mile slower than the current fastes car i nthe world, as of last year the McLaren F1

the 1000TT is wat better and the price weighs i nat around $280,000

Unforunately giving your Viper to Hennessy is like letting a 5 year old loose in the car witha milkshake- Trust me been there before (Milkshake- not Hennessy) I don't think I really want to be Hennescrewed.

By the way the Lingenfelter 'Vette and "Hennessy Viper" are not production cars they are tuned cars- they are STREET LEGAL- but in no way production cars

I think you're referring to the Ford RS200 because there's no such model as the Escort RS200 ( but there was an Escort RS2000 ).

Also, the standard Ford RS200 that could be purchased from Ford dealers, was never capable of the acceleration you've quoted. The model that did 0-60 in under 3 seconds was an evolution model. Only 24 of the evos were produced.

Personally, I;m not sure whther or not it was production, there's a lot of controversy on that (somehow). But, I would say the TVR Speed 12. 0-60 of 2.45 secs in a wholly unmodified engine. Assuming it was "production" the stock engine made around 940 bhp (this is according ot later dino tests) all w/o turbos or superchargers! Bet your Hennessey or Lingenfelter can't do that. It has a V12 based on A LOT of F1 tech. Pretty sweet car even if it doesn't win this competition.

if the dauer 962 whatever is the fastest, then the other two cars that are exactly the same probably at least tie the dauer. the daur 962, dp motorsports 962, and koenig c62 are all just road-legal versions of the porsche 962 lm with ~600 hp. i'm pretty sure that none of those cars beat the rs200 evo or the hennessey viper.

the 962 would kill either of those cars in any kind of track situation..the only thing hennessey or the vette or any of those heavily modded american cars are good for is straight lines. and u can buy the 962..some where in the neighborhood of 800,000+ depending on how u want the car..its customer based. making it production...

and they are not the same..962 is flat-6, vette is a v-8, viper is a v-10.. 962 is a m/r..viper and vette are f/r...and the koenig is not the same as the 962..only dauer got permission to build a road verion of the 962

moslerporschefreak
02-26-2004, 06:02 PM
I wasn't sure whether or not it was ever officially tested. The 2.45 secs that I quote was actually a mock up done taking every variable anyone could take into consideration (a lot of them I hadn't even heard of) with a very accurate program. Point is, that even if 2.45 is off the mark, it isn't by much, and that would edge the Speed 12 to the front of the pack.

nfs924
02-27-2004, 11:36 AM
well considering the orignal hit an acclaimed 2.9..and then fell back to low 3's..magaizines have guestamated the cerbera to have somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 seconds..but not 2.45

however tvr has no intention of testing the car, and neither has any second party tester..and there are only 3 cars anyways..all show cars..the car was simply a car built to improve tvr's image..not a car with any race or mass production goals

Dauer = #1

hate to bust your bubble but the S7 runs to 60 in 3.3 seconds...unless my math is off the 2.6 seconds of the dauer would be faster.

moslerporschefreak
02-29-2004, 02:47 PM
SLCskiier: Ummm... you're kidding right? yes the S7 is fast. Ok, it's damn fast. But it is by no means the fastest to 60. The enzo ties it, according to some tests, the CC8S beats it, as does the F1LM. The MT900S Photon can certainly tie it (probably beat it but I'll say tie because of motor trends crazy test data and for the sake of argument). Then there is the TVR Speed 12, Dauer 962 which have been recently discussed that leave it in the dust.

btw I'm not trying to bite your head off, just stating my opinion. And welcome to AF, have fun and I hope you learn as much as i have.:biggrin:

As mentioned earlier koenigsegg makes fast cars. There's a new one now (Koenigsegg CCR) that does 0-62 mph in 3.2s and the top speed is over 242mph. I would say it's more of a production car than many other suggestions.

It's only a matter of time before Caterham produces an ultra powerful Seven. Although the SL R500 is impressive.

Inline-4.
460kilos. Even a lighter carbon fiber version available.
230HP

0-60 in 3.4s
0-100-0 in 11.44s .. World Record Holder.

Or, my preference. Tiger Z100.

twin kawasaki 1200cc engines
650kilos
408HP total
0-60 in 2.8s [ Top Gear tested at 2.97 by Tiff Needell. ]
0-100 in 6.3s

One difference though, between the Seven and the rest of the pack. That is -- it's more possible to own one.

SL R500 cost = $57,500
Tiger Z100 = $71,700

moslerporschefreak
05-06-2004, 05:52 PM
I'm surprised that the Tiger Z100WR is so fast in the 0-60. Not because of the engine but because of the tires. For a 2.8 second run, I'm surprised that those fairly skinny tires have enough bite.

The 1988 Chevrolet Sledgehammer Corvette made by Callaway is the fastest PRODUCTION car. and suprisingly the production model (the model they tested the speed on) doesnt even have that good of a cam? and you could easily add another 150 hp to the car!! anyway... its top is 254.7mph (409.9kph) (its only has the 0-60 of 3.9 though). Don't forget, PRODUCTION means no AFTER MARKET MODIFICATIONS!

Have a great day.

First of all, aren't the Callaway modifications technically considered to be aftermarket? Callaway doesn't/didn't make the entire car from scratch. Also, how many of these were made and were the crash tested witht he Callaway parts? Also, where exactly was this 254.7 mph top speed verified? Some answers would be appreciated.

Anyways, it's a moot point I guess because nfs is right.

I think ive heard those numbers before as well, the top speed set Oct 19, 1989 reaching 254.76 mph.The car was driven by John Lingenfelter, but its besides the point. This is a fastest 0-60 forum. And anyways the callaway is hardly a production car. there is only 1 of the cars in existence. even tho callway said they could produce them for about 400,000 they still never did. And what is callaway, but a tuned corvette?? Sure its a great car, but it sure isnt the worlds fastest production car from 0-60.

the ultima gtr is the fasted production car in the world.

0-60 in 2.8 seconds
0-100 in 5.5 seconds
0-150 in 11.3, a whole second faster than the mclaren f1

and its the first car and the only car to do 0-100mph-0 in under 10 seconds. it did it in 9.8, is capable of doing it in the low 9 seconds.

it blitzes the ferrari enzo on the skidpan test and ambolishes even the most expensive cars at excellerating and all this for 30k. absolute bargin.

if this aint good enough for you there is a company called z cars that tune it from the standard 750bhp/ton to 1020bhp/ton (f1 standard) and that truly is awesome.

oh and callaway, hennessy, ect arent true production cars, theyre aftermarket tuned production cars

same with shelby, mugen, dinan, ect. ect.

the true production performance names are mopar, SVT, nismo, ralli-art, AMG, yknow, companies that are the same as the manufacturer of the car
