The Quickest Cars Built in the U.S.A.

Donald Trump has been shouting that we need to make America great again. But if you’re a lover of fast cars, America’s already a pretty awesome place to be. We’ve surveyed the market to find the fastest cars built in America today, from muscle and sports cars to lightning quick SUVs.

The country was once known for its Detroit-built, low-tech, yet powerful and fast muscle cars. But the landscape has changed, and the fastest cars made in the U.S. now come from across the country – from California’s Tesla to Detroit’s Dodge Viper and South Carolina’s BMW X5 M.

Take a lap to see the quickest of the quick. We’ve ranked them by their acceleration from zero to 60 mph using data from manufacturers and reliable independent testers. When you’ve found the right rocket ship for your favorite drive, be sure to check out U.S. News & World Report’s Best Price Program and our new car deals page so you don’t pay too much.

You’ll note that there are a few notable nameplates missing from this list. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat, Dodge Charger Hellcat, and Ford GT are gifts from our neighbors to the north, all built in Canada. To make this list, you have to be built right here in the U.S. – now that’s something that should make Mr. Trump happy.
