Fastest Caterham cars 0-60 mph

Top 12 fastest Caterham cars from 0 to 60 mph. Updated January 2022.

0-60 mph acceleration time is most well known performance figure in United States and closely matches its European analogue - 0-100 kph time.

Today the 0-60 mph times are dominated by all wheel drive supercars with advanced launch control or electric cars with 4 wheel drive.

With enough engine power, 0-60 mph time becomes function of tyre traction - the more mechanical grip in tyres and more "linear" the initial power delivery, the better the 0-60 mph times.

Heavier cars with good 4 wheel drive system can still outmatch lighter sports cars with better power to weight ratio.
