    not really, remember it weights heaps and just because it has tonns of powe dont mean i will go faster,

    and evo 7 has "206"Kws and it does 6.5 secs to 100 this thing has more then 3 times that and probably will do 3 secs. <!-- Signature -->

    i think 3.0 seconds is #$%#ing fast i mean this car is probably geared for top speed so the 3.0 seconds is good! and by good i mean #$%#ing awesome

    Lacks low end torque. Not really but in comparison to other supercars.<!-- Signature -->

    LAcks low-end torque? Are you blind my friend? Look at the stats. The full 1250nm torque is available from 2200rpm! Name another production car that developes over 1200nm torque at 2200rpm. I cant think of one. If had to gues as to why the 0-60mph is so "Slow" it would be a traction issue. Putting all that power to the ground to send the car from a standing start to 100kmh (60mph) is going to put strain on any driveline and tyres. That would be my guess. But it's just a guess. I stand by the earlier remark of 0-60mph of est. 3.0 seconds being seriously quick, awesomly quick.

    The weigh of the car is an issue, but bear in mind that 3.0 seconds is lower than that of the McLaren F1 and Ferrari Enzo. The 7-speed gearbox allows for short low gears for acceleration as well as tall upper gears for that increbile speed.
