If you’ve spent any time looking around The Richest you will have noticed that most articles concerning vehicles are about the most expensive, the most luxurious or the fastest. We are obsessed with what expensive cars celebrities drive and which car maker has the largest engines and the fastest creations. We drool over the most expensive cars, vehicles which can cost more than the houses we live in. All of this time staring at the biggest, best and most expensive has left little to room for considering the ‘lesser’ cars of the automotive world. What about the cheapest, the least reliable and the most gutless? More people drive those cars than the super cars we read about so maybe it’s time to give them a little space.

The following looks at one car category which is often brushed aside by the Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Aston Martins and McLarens. If there are the fastest cars from 0-60 mph then there must be a group of cars which are the slowest to accelerate to 60 mph. Sure, having the slowest accelerating car isn’t sexy or exciting but it’s a reality. Slow acceleration times don’t mean the car is garbage – as you’ll see – it just means that potential racers and those of you looking to burn that annoying car next to you from a stop won’t consider these as potential purchases. Looking through the following list there are some pretty nice and expensive vehicles listed. In all likelihood there is more than one car listed ahead which you wouldn’t mind having in your garage or driveway if the opportunity presented itself.

At top spot (depending on how you look at it) is this full-size van from Ford. For over 60 years Ford had relied on the E-series vans to fill the people/cargo hauling jobs. With the end of the E-series, Ford is looking to this vehicle to fill the void. Compared to its predecessor, the Transit is lighter, more aerodynamic and ergonomic. To be honest, unless it’s the A-Team van you likely aren’t going to break any 0-60 records. In fact, if you are a Transit 350HD owner the race will likely be over before you even arrive at the event. That’s because even though this van is powered by a 3.2L turbo diesel engine, the motor is not tuned for ‘high performance’ in the racing sense of the word. Nevertheless, with a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs, it will get your race car to the track without any problems.
