Just when I thought 3.5secs to 60mph was fast, I stumbled upon these timings.
Take a look.

These are really some amazing timings. Surprisingly only one Ferrari features in the table that too a Koenigg tuned F50. Simply mind blowing. Infact there is a lot of information on this site thats worth reading Check it out

Cheers

I think whats even more amazing is that fact that the last half of that list of cars takes 3 seconds to get to the 60. Butttttttttttttt imagine the g forces when you are being pushed to 100km/h (okay 98) in 1.2 seconds! Thats quicker than Schumy's F2003 G.A. Formula One racer.

All I can say is......WOW

I was watching this Top Gear F50 video and at the end of it they mentioned the specs of the car and u won't believe what was written under 0 - 100mph..........TG says it does it in 4.8 secs!!!!!!!

Now we all the Mclaren F1 takes around 7 secs to do the same. Heck, even a Hayabusa takes 5-6 secs.

What in the name of god were they thinking???

Even the ARIEL ATOM does it in less than 3 seconds as far as i know. And What about the Caparo T1. That i think is the fastest to 60.
