What Is The Fastest 0-60 MPH Time Allowed By Horsepower And Physics?

Technology

We're getting pretty close to the limit but can still go faster.

When Tesla dropped the Model S P100D and said it was the quickest car you could buy new people began to naturally ask questions about acceleration. Engineering Explained has decided to take a crack at answering some of the questions behind the physics of launching a car to answer the question: What is the absolute limit for a Ludicrous mode or any launch control system for that matter? On paper you can design an engine to be as powerful as you want, but a car is still made of physical materials and all of those have breaking points.

Check out Engineering Explained as he figures out just how far modern supercars have left to go before the 0-60 mph time can’t be pushed anymore.
