# 0 to 60 mph

The time it takes to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h or 0 to 27 m/s) is a commonly used performance measure for automotive acceleration in the United States and the United Kingdom. [1]

## Acceleration

Acceleration, in physics, is the rate of change of velocity of an object.

## Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 was a mid-engined sports car, designed and developed in Germany by the Volkswagen Group and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. The original version had a top speed of.

## Cubic centimetre

A cubic centimetres (or cubic centimeters in US English) (SI unit symbol: cm3; non-SI abbreviations: cc and ccm) is a commonly used unit of volume that extends the derived SI-unit cubic metre, and corresponds to the volume of a cube that measures 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm.

A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that uses the Doppler effect to produce velocity data about objects at a distance.

## Kilometres per hour

The kilometre per hour (American English: kilometer per hour) is a unit of speed, expressing the number of kilometres travelled in one hour.

## Launch control (automotive)

Launch control is an electronic aid to assist drivers of both racing and street cars to accelerate from a standing start.

## List of fastest production cars by acceleration

The widely varying testing methodologies mean that, even between identical cars, the acceleration times vary.

## List of fastest production motorcycles by acceleration

This is a list of street legal production motorcycles ranked by acceleration from a standing start, limited to 0 to 60 mph times of under 3.5 seconds, and 1/4 mile times of under 12 seconds.

## Metre per second

Metre per second (U.S. spelling: meter per second) is an SI derived unit of both speed (scalar) and velocity (vector quantity which specifies both magnitude and a specific direction), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds.

## Miles per hour

Miles per hour (abbreviated mph, MPH or mi/h) is an imperial and United States customary unit of speed expressing the number of statute miles covered in one hour.

## Motorcycle testing and measurement

Motorcycle testing and measurement includes a range of more than two dozen statistics giving the specifications of the motorcycle, and the actual performance, expressed by such things as the output of the engine, and the top speed or acceleration of the motorcycle.

A radar speed gun (also radar gun and speed gun) is a device used to measure the speed of moving objects.
