No way does the v6 accord do it below 8 seconds. The 2.4 would just about break the 10 second mark to the ton if it's a manual.

I am sure the Omni will do a 100 and most importantly make getting there from 60 kmph and staying there a lot more exciting than any other car.

These car mag figures

IIRC, one of the recent BSM issues/specials carried a report on the Palio 1.6 Stile with a claimed 9.8s to the ton ! And they have mentioned it in more than one place in the writeup so surely not a typo.

the new 3l is tweaked a bit supposedly. one of the mags quoted 7.9 or so to the ton. im pretty sure the camry figure is right.

The mondeos 0-100 timing is 10.1s cause it needs an extra shift to get there (very short gearing).

the accord 3.0 and 2.4 mt do it in about 9.1s.

Cedia will do it in 10 and half. Tested it personally. Does need third gear though as 2nd can only hit around 96-98. Civic will do it under 10. I have no idea where you got those figures from.
