0-60 times, many models of all makes

I found this neat website that shows 0-60 times of many models of all makes.
Thought I'd share it here

Cool an entire website dedicated to the most useless performance metric of all time.

I have more than 4,000 songs on my phone so I don't really use it.

The commercials and the limited skips annoys me

Well it's not the most useless performance metric. You can get a decent idea of what kind of power and performance the car has from just a snapshot of the 0-60. Combine that with a 5-60 and a 1/4 mile and you can get a really good idea.

But 0-60 alone isn't worthless.

like anyone gaf... except auto journalists that make up and put undue emphasis on those "guys arguing about their car stats in a bar" stories...like that shit actually happens.

760i owners dont even go to bars... they go to their country club drink lemonade and play golf in a pink jacket while discussing their market shares.

lol... 323i's so slow its not even on that list.

No doubt, but 0-60 is a decent measure of how fast your car will feel when you are driving it. As noted above, it certainly isn't a useless metric. It isn't the Kingmaker, but it has some value.

0-60 just gives you a general idea of how quickly the car can accelerate. It doesn't have practical use anywhere outside a magazine and varies based on driver skill, tires, weather and many other factors. 5-60 is slightly more practical but is still fairly useless. 45-65 or other similar passing tests are probably the most practical acceleration indicators.

I would say another relatively useless car stat is horsepower. It only tells part of the picture. What kind of gearing and weight is all that horsepower hooked up to? Unless you're living at redline 24/7, torque is the more useful stat.
