I didn't know it was so freaking fast.
isnt the equivilent twin turbo diesel only .5 second slower?
whats the output of this car again?
0-60 i overrated, 0-120 is the only inresting
the 335d goes from 0 to 60 in 6,1 sec
C&D, RT = BS.
The 3.9s run is peculiarly fast, especially for R&T. But what are they going to do, lie about it?
The Euro mags have recorded 4.7s for both 997's (S and non-S). And considering they do their tests 2-up, the other figures are reasonable within variables of atmospheric and track conditions.
Automobile has tested 2 of them on the dyno. They got (in rwhp):
1st car - 276, 280, 280, 283
2nd car - 282, 285, 287
edmunds tested a press car as well as a customer's car, both on the same day.
Customer car- 272
Press - 279
Using the lowest figure (the customer's car) and a reasonable 15% drivetrain loss, that's about 320 crank hp.
Only Ferraris are ringers, STFU
That's well within the +/-5% tolerance used by many manufacturers.
EDIT: And I mean within the tolerances of that press car.
No, but I think Ferrari is among the few companies that go so far as to discourage owners from submitting their cars for testing, however.
You'd better believe it.
With a little bit of tuning by Vishnu Performance some of the customer cars are seeing 348 RWHP and 373 RWTQ. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38686
thats still pretty quick!
More important is the quarter-mile time. It's basically exactly the same (time and trap) as the E46. The new M3 will probably get a 12.8 s quarter with 112 mph trap speed.
they should give the new M3 the McF1 engine, that'll distance it from this
