This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Yeah about 13.7 from motor and wheels magazines. I think the EVO Lancer would have to be as fast or faster then the M5. No offence to the M5, I really like it, but It is also a luxury car and a lot heavier than the EVO. The evo in Australia runs about 13.2s 1/4 but British magazines have better figures. The test on the M5 and GTS that I saw in motor or something never had any figures, they just said it was faster, but in an acceleration test in someother mag the M5 was faster.

    Motor did have figures when they tested the M5 against the GTS.
     
  3. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Are we arguing about "fast" or "better"?
    This car was the fastest 4 door in the world when it came out but now its a CSV again...
     
  4. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Top speed or acceleration?
     
  5. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Both, 274km/h and I think 0-100 in 5.1.
     
  6. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    BMW M5????


    wasn't it faster than that??
     
  7. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Nope
     
  8. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Nope, not that I know of.
     
  9. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Go HOLDEN GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
     
  10. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Yeah you're right, sorry, 5.19 for M5
     
  11. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    It's not a CSV anymore, the RS6 beat it for acceleration when that came out, but now it's a mercedes benz. The AMG E55 does 0 - 100km/h in 4.7 seconds, and not sure about top speed figures, but it's taken the title of the world's fastest four-door

    Bugger!

    I say Holden and CAPA join forces and sell all their cars with big ass blowers and intercoolers. :)
     
  13. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    I say Ford and HOlden should make one supercar, send it over to the US and have it beat the pants of avery car that they have.. but that'll probably never appen, better yet one each and have them come first and second every time <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> they'd also have to have lower power than the yank cars, to piss them off even more <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  14. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Why stop at the US? I'd love to see them send it to Europe to cane all their exotics too.
     
  15. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    well US first, but yeah i think it woudl be a good thing... jstu the companies owners would probablt get pissed off, becos they would get beaten by their own offspring, much like english and cricket
     
  16. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Im sorry but an RS6 does 0-100 in 4.7 and that isnt claimed and the Mercs is so the RS6 still holds it, the holden cant do below 13.5 1/4 mile and cant do under 5.5sec 0-100. That qualifies as slow compared to the awesome 330kW RS6
     
  17. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    0-60 for the M5 is faster than then the previous-gen Z06, ,which was like the high 4's

  19. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    the 5.0 0-60 is about right, but i think its a best figure. some magazines say a best of 5.2, but it depends on the individual car and what fat ass is driving it.

    but 12.51? a 4WD skyline with 380hp does 12.66, weighing 1560kg and with ideal 4WD launch.
     
  20. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Its a typo, the best they got from this car was 13.51
     
  21. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

  23. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    and i suppose that was measured using your cousins G-tech?
     
  24. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    the gts still has the highest top speed for a 4 door sedan with 275 kmh. the euro sedans are limited at 250. it is faster to 100kmh than the m5 and the previous e55 but the current one is faster. It is pretty much as fast around winton as the current e55.
    i have seen a gto coupe do a 12second 1/4mile with slicks so one of these could go even faster
     
  25. Re: This Car Does Not Do 12.51s for the 1/4

    Holden Special Vehicles....Worlds Fastest Ever Sedan?

    What the f***...No no no The European kick ur shit ...I live in Australia and i see GTS300's do 13.7 with Slicks at the Race Course
