I just don't get it. I was hoping this would be the video to settle but alas, no. These car companies are either using roll outs or some strange launch control instead of just giving the consumer actual 0-60 times. Its as if they're trying to get the most controversial number, not the most accurate.
Yea, from a dead stop if you just mashed the throttle it would probably be 5.0-5.2 my guess. Buts its all relative. Its actually the mags using these techniques. BMW rates there cars fairly conservatively(335 is 5.4s).
