North America’s Fastest Production Cars

North America’s Fastest Production Cars

The list which follows has been compiled of the fastest accelerating* production cars (F.A.P.C.) and trucks built by any major manufacturer for the North American market. Despite the fact that the list includes a number of contemporary prestige vehicles which nobody would come anywhere close to defining as ‘classic’ or ‘muscle’ cars, they are most definitely collectors and certainly destined to be classics. The data used was compiled from the results of independent tests conducted by several major publications in the U.S. and Canada.**

Our modus operandi is simple: we’ve simply taken the quickest quarter mile elapsed times and listed them in order from quickest to slowest. Vehicles with a quarter mile time of more than 14 seconds have not been included. Trivial? Yes, but still intriguing. Why? We did it simply to satisfy your curiosity. Accurate? Not necessarily.** That largely depends on possibly hundreds of factors that need to be taken into account during testing, including weather, altitude, drivers, traction, etc.
