Fastest 2 wheel drive cars 0-40 kph

Top 2 fastest front and rear wheel drive cars from 0 to 40 kph. Updated October 2020.

Due to limits of two-wheel-drive traction, 0-50 or 0-40 kph times are dominated by all wheel drive cars.

To highlight fast-launching 2 wheel drive cars, this list of fastest 0-40 kph times excludes all 4 wheel drives, leaving only front and rear driven cars.

Efficient traction and launch control is essential for a 2-wheel-drive to make it on this list. Power-to-weight ratio also becomes a factor.
