Road & Track welcomes a select few to the two-second club

The Two-Second Club



There are many ways to measure a car's performance, and no shortage of benchmarks against which to judge them. The 200 mile-per-hour mark, for example, holds its share of bragging rights. And back in the day, Road & Track would hold shootouts to determine which cars made the cut and which did not. But now the magazine is back with a new benchmark, one that's a lot tougher to beat: the two-second sprint to sixty.

There are only a few cars – that is, showroom-stock production cars – in the world that can run from 0-60 in less than three seconds. Most of them are all-wheel drive, have dual-clutch transmissions, and are made by one division or another of the Volkswagen Group. R&T admitted the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Porsche 911 Turbo S and Nissan GT-R to the exclusive club. Video of the affair is posted after the jump.

We'd like to see the Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 458 Italia and McLaren MP4-12C give it a shot. What would you like to see in the next heat? Treat the comments section as a suggestion box.
