Look at the torque numbers....

If you look carefully, the displacement hasn't changed between the two.

Additionally, traction becomes an issue once you’re below 5 sec. on a rear wheel drive car. Driver skill becomes exponentially more important in extracting good numbers. Like Rodo said above, 4 sec numbers are possible, but only with a highly experienced driver behind the wheel.
