Fastest cars in India under 20 lakhs

Team CARS24

Adrenaline is one of the most addictive things. Clocking triple-digit speed on a vehicle is the closest one can be towards breaking free out of the monotony of reality. Scenic adventure passing through the windows in the opposite direction, resembling how far you’ve come, could be one of the most surreal revelations of human life. This desire of us to test the limits of the theory of relativity makes us push the pedals and zoom past the highway while humming our favourite Jim Morrison track, tapping on the beats all along. The common notion is that a car that can ‘fly’ will cost a fortune to us, but to answer this, we have listed down the five fastest cars in India under 20 Lakhs which can clock 0-100 kmph in less than 15 seconds.
