Performance

  1. Hey are the performance figures on this page right? I was on some other webpage and it said that this car would go 0-60 in 7.8 and had a top speed of 130mph (140 with aftermarket stuff). It also said this car had a turning radius of 30ft. Is this true?
     
  2. Re: Performance

    0-60 more like 9 maybe 10.5 in the auto. And the top speed is around 125mph. Ive got mine up to 118mph (dont tell anyone about that). But I have heard that one guy in Germany got a stock DMC up to 140mph.

    Yes the turning circle is only 30ft but its a fairly short car.
