There's only one thing for it and it involves an athlete's stopwatch and some furtive scanning of the local dragstrips, sorry, B-roads.

Cerbera 4.5 (0.60,3.9 and 0-100,8.3)
therefore 60-100 would be 4.4sec.

996TT (0-60,4.2 and 0-100,9.2)
therefore 60-100 would be 5sec

Macca (0-60,3.2 and 0-100,6.3)
therefore 60-100 would be 2 sec!

Will have to grab my copy of Autocar at home to compile some more.

I have to confess to measuring my Civic's 60-100 mph time on the public road, in rush hour (not going with the flow of traffic, I hasten to add) - slightly uphill on a curving motorway sliproad, using the speedometer and a Casio watch strapped round the steering wheel, it managed 9.88s (hey, the accuracy's important when you've got up to 10mph over-reading on the speedo and a reaction time to take into account too...)

I want a GPS speedo thing, I suppose, but it would just encourage me to do it again...

I make it 3.1 not 2.0

What the heck is a Macca? I have read one of the Ultima GTR articles and it mentioned Mike Tyson own a Macca that is incredibly fast, equal to the Mclaren F1.

Errrr, Macca = McLaren F1. 'Macca' is to McLaren as 'Tiv' is to TVR and 'Maser' is to Maserati.

A.K.A. 'Big Mac'

So its hardly surprising that the 'Macca' is as fast as the McLaren F1 really.

"Having been a bit of a car nut in his heyday, my usually reserved and chilled dad shouted over the engine "fcuking hell, I had no idea cars could do that!".

A few confirmation blats up and down various motorway slip roads and I returned home having slapped a permanent hazy grin on his face - much to the amusement of my mum."

Some seriously fast metal.

The Four posts a very quick 0-60 time (benefits of 4wd). I suspect 30-70 is in the 5-6 second region once on boost.

60-100 is probably around 8 seconds. Power loss due to the complex drivetrain slows the car by this point. The 4wd becomes a parasitic loss and additional mass by this point.

Time for more boost then.



Oh, and I've done something similar to my old mum. Rolled out of town, long straight road, clearway sign. 25mph in second, went WOT. Lifted at 100 leptons. She screamed all the way there.

I'm sure it's quick but It can't do that and didn't do it, pleased that the thread was resurrected though smile
