Help Me!

    A possible reason for the discrepancy is that they could have done the speed and distance timing on different runs. A 1/4 mile of 14.1 is far slower than you would expect from the other acceleration data.

    Check Car & Driver they had a cover
    with the GTO and the Testarossa.
    They had a road test of both cars.

  13. Re: Help Me!

    Why does Road and Track have nearly identicle time as Car and Driver for 0-120 mph, but Car and Driver have 1 whole second difference in the 1/4 mile? Very Strange!! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
