0-60 in......

Can somebody with significantly more car knowledge than me explain what the purpose of the "0-60mph" measuring standard is all about? I've always been curious about why that's the "Gold Standard" for vehicle performance.

Mostly so you can smoke those suckers when the light turns green.

The main reason they talk about 0 to 60 is this is what you do when you merge into freeway traffic. The faster to 60 miles per hour, the smaller a space you need to merge into.
