Faster than any other land animal, the cheetah is a large feline inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East.
How fast is it? In short bursts, the cheetah can run as fast as 112 to 120 km/h (70 to 75 mph).
From a standing start, it has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 72.4 km/h (45 mph) in 2 seconds and some suggest to over 100 km/h (62 mph) in three seconds. Most race cars do not achieve these rates of acceleration!
