The best 10 cars of 2018 according to Car and Driver in acceleration

3/16/2018

​​​​​​​​​​​

The ranking of the best cars by acceleration takes into consideration the time to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour.

The 10 best cars selected by Car&Driver are represented collectively by 23 different equipment packages that we placed in order based on acceleration performance. As you can see from the table, all 8 cars that have the best acceleration are equipped with Brembo brakes, as are 9 out of the top 10.

There could be a double explanation. On one hand, great performance requires great brakes and this leads to the manufacturers preferring Brembo brakes for their flagship models.

 

 ​

On the other hand, in order to have great acceleration, besides powerful engines, the cars also must be particularly light: in this area, Brembo braking systems provide a significant contribution, thanks to one of their most distinctive characteristics of being lightweight.
