0-60 in 3.92?

Discussion in '2000 Ferrari 360 Modena' started by WorshipTheMclaren, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. In Motortrend's High speed shootout they tested this car to 60 in 3.92 seconds, faster than a 911 turbo. Any idea how the hell this happened?<!-- Signature -->

    The '01 911 Turbo consistently runs times of 3.90sec. as well. It depends, though, on what day the cars are tested, the elevation, wind, etc. Both cars are great, and I wouldn't mind owning either of them, but I think I would mind owning the 911 Turbo just a little less than the Ferrari.

    Simple. Different cars react differently to different track conditions, weather conditions, etc. BTW, MT is the ONLY place I've seen a 360 Modena doing it in less than 4.0 seconds. The 996 Turbo was also under 4.0 (only .06 seconds behind at 3.98 seconds), and also sub-4.0 in AutoWeek's test.
    At 100 mph, though, it's a different story. The 996 Turbo erases its .06-sec deficit and gains another .06 seconds to beat the 360 Modena to 100 mph (9.68 vs 9.74 for the Modena). By the quarter mile mark, the Modena has dropped from its 1st place position in the 0-60 sprint to 4th place (12.25 vs 11.92 for the 996TT).

    Must have been the wind, haha.

    But the 911 turbo is ususally pretty faster the the 360 Modena, check their Nurburgring times.<!-- Signature -->

    Pretty damn imperssiev if you ask me, considering the TT has awd and 100+ more lb-ft of torque. How did they manage that you ask? SImple, Ferrari makes kick ass cars.<!-- Signature -->

    Mm, the Turbo is usually faster.
