The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Is there anything better than a fast sedan?


10.) Lotus Carlton

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 177 MPH

0-60: 5.2 Seconds

Sold as both the Opel-Lotus Omega and the Vauxhall-Lotus Carlton, this is the worlds first super sedan. The Lotus tuned sedan was so fast it caused a nationwide controversy in the UK.

9.) Ford Falcon GT-F 351

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 186 MPH

0-60: 4.5 Seconds (est.)

This represents somewhat of an end for Ford in Australia. It's not the last Falcon, but it is the last for Ford Performance Vehicles. They've gone out with quite the bang.

8.) Jaguar XFR-S

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 186 MPH

0-60: 4.4 Seconds

This blue-tastic four door from Jaguar uses a supercharged 5.0 L V8 to rocket to 186 MPH and turn its rear tires into smoke. Too bad they only made 200 of them.

7.) Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4Matic

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 186 MPH

0-60: 3.5 Seconds

The newest E63 AMG from Mercedes-Benz has 577 HP and all-wheel drive in S 4Matic trim. It'll hit 60 in a scarcely believable 3.5 seconds.

6.) Aston Martin Rapide S

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 190 MPH

0-62: 4.4

With its cramped back seats, the Aston Martin Rapide S probably does the worst job as a sedan than anything on this list, but arguably the classiest. Good looks and a roaring V12 make for a winning combination.

5.) BMW M5/M6 Gran Coupe

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 190 MPH

0-60: 3.7 Seconds

Don't believe the figures on BMW's website — independent testing confirms the M5 and M6 Gran Coupe are actually much faster. It's even more impressive when you realize that they're sending their 560 HP to only the rear wheels.

4.) Audi RS7

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 190 MPH

0-60: 3.4 Seconds

Thanks to Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive, the sexy RS7 rockets to 60 in just 3.4 seconds. Also, when has a sedan ever looked that good?

3.) Porsche Panamera Turbo S

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 192 MPH

0-60: 3.6 Seconds

While the Panamera Turbo S is not blessed with the RS7's good looks, owners won't care because they're car is a whopping 2 MPH faster. Those numbers might be pessimistic, though since Porsche often underrates the speed of their cars.

2.) Bentley Flying Spur W12

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 200 MPH

0-60: 4.3 Seconds

Yes, we live in a world where a 200 MPH Bentley sedan exists. Crazy, right?

1.) BMW M5 (E60)

The Ten Fastest Sedans Ever Made

Top Speed: 204 MPH

0-60: 4.2 Seconds

What? The last generation of the M5 is faster than the new one? Yep. The new one is good for a (still ridiculous) 190 MPH whereas the less powerful E60 is good for 204 MPH with the limiter removed.

Why? The E60 probably has longer gearing, hence the slower 0-60 but higher top speed.
