Top 100 fastest cars and bikes in 1000 meters 2017
The 1 kilometer acceleration benchmark (also known as "1000 meter acceleration" or "standing kilometer") is one of the very fastest and longest standing acceleration benchmarks.
Due to the long distance and high terminal speeds, this benchmark favors very powerful cars and motorcycles. Low downforce and low coefficient of drag is also very beneficial to achieve good "standing kilometer" time.
Therefore, this benchmark is not relevant for high downforce track-focused vehicles, especially those with low weight and smaller engines.
For more heavy cars with large engines, this long distance benchmark is a chance to finally "overtake" some more lightweight competitors that manage to stay ahead after the 1/4 mile or even the 1/2 mark.
