Ford Mustang: 0-60 mph Times, 1/4 Mile Times & Top Speed

Welcome to the most complete Ford Mustang 0-60, quarter mile and top speed resource online. The Ford Mustang's general performance credentials are well known. A true bang for your buck performance icon, the Mustang has always punched above its weight class when it comes to 0-60 mph times and 1/4 mile performance. On this page we take a look at the Mustang 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times as well as top speed numbers. While the Mustang was never known as a top speed demon and its top speed was often electronically limited anyway, we do know that 0-60 times do make a good year on year comparison base. From entry-level Mustangs to the top of the heap special edition Mustangs, we have pulled together the acceleration performance figures from Ford directly or from publications that have tested Mustang 0-60 or 1/4 mile times over the years. The one thing that this Mustang 0-60 mph data won't give you is a sense for how far the Mustang performance has come in other areas. Muscle cars used to be one-trick ponies, drag strip favorites that could not turn a corner. That of course was the old days, because today the Mustang's performance as an all-around sports car is second to none, keeping up with its European competition both on the road and on the track.
