20 “Cheap” Cars That Accelerate 0-60 In Under 5 Seconds

What’s the most fun way to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 5 seconds? Some may argue that it's in a hypercar such as the Bugatti Chiron or Koenigsegg, which can both go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in seconds. Others may prefer supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador, which goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in seconds or the Ferrari 458, which can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in seconds.

However, these cars are quite expensive. But don’t despair, as there are cheaper options. Cars such as the $11,995 2003 Jaguar XJR, which is power-driven by a supercharged, spark-ignition 4-stroke indirect injection V8 engine can go from standstill to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. Another one is the $28,995 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR Evolution X TC-SST, which can go from standstill to 60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds.
