If you read our fastest 0-60 accelerating production cars we noted that the list was dominated by 4 wheel drive electric wizardry. If however you change the benchmark – go from say 0-60 to the 1/4 mile. It is a very, very different story.

So in the interest of fairness and to tip our caps to engineers with a wrench and not a laptop here’s the Ten fastest 1/4 mile production cars.
