The top 5 fastest Aussie cars to 100km/h

These are the quickest home-grown cars to hit the tonne

2017  Walkinshaw W557

If you want to buy one of the fastest Aussie cars MOTOR has ever tested, you’re in luck. Two of them are on sale now.

But if you’ve got yourself an FG-based FPV, we know a few folks who can help you out with that.

MOTOR recently tested the fastest Aussie car it’s ever had the honour of fanging, and it made us wonder how the ‘top 5 to 100km/h’ list actually looks.

So, quick as we can…

1. 2017 Walkinshaw W557 GTS – 3.81s

2017-Walkinshaw-W557-driving.jpgWith 557kW (duh) and 930Nm at its disposal, it’s not a huge surprise that the Walkinshaw W557 is the fastest Aussie car MOTOR has ever tested to 100km/h.

In just 3.81 seconds, the Walky will hit highway speeds, which is quick enough to embarrass a $295K BMW M4 GTS. Ouch.

That said, the Walky only holds the 100km/h sprint record, the quarter-mile winner wears a different badge…

2. KPM Motorsport’s Streetfighter FPV GT-E – 3.83s

Trap speeds sadly weren't published that year, but it would have had to be in the 205km/h region – serious speed.

3. KPM Motorsport’s Streetfighter VE GTS – 3.91s

4. HSV Maloo GTSR – 4.14s

5. Herrod Falcon G6E Turbo – 4.31s
