I assume it means you have a car that can run a quarter mile that fast. Would be a damn fast street car.

You're asking this in a Honda question section? If you want a 9 second car you may wanna forget the ricers and move onto a real car.

It varies on where you live, but the general idea is that the car can accelerate from 0km/hr to 100km/hr in 9 seconds. It can also be measued in miles/hr of course. Sometimes, it is also how fast a car can cover a 1/4 mile track starting at 0km/hr.

Typically in street racing terms, that means that the car can travel 1/4 mile in 9 seconds. Granted, unless the car is a modified muscle car or a fully race converted import (meaning it's no longer street legal), that's highly unlikely.

Means you can take your car to the drag strip and run 9.00-9.99 seconds on the quarter mile.It's definitely not something easily achieved. Most cars run about 14-18 seconds and even good stock sports cars only run about 12-14 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron, the disputed fastest stock car in the world runs 10 seconds.
