Very nice car! I'm just a little disappointed in how fast it is 0-60. It should be closer to 4 in my mind. It's only .2 seconds quicker than the last model

Law of diminishing returns, and traction. Getting a RWD car with street tires to get much quicker is very hard.

I agree.. don't like either styling. Maybe it needs getting used to, still love the "current" E55.

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.

To tell ya he truth i dont see how is it possible to hit low 4s with launch control, i mean it always revs up to certain rpms and then i dump the clutch... so it should be pretty much same numbers all the time isnt it? 4.5 to 4.7 as they claim...

Btw as i break in the car i wanna see how it would do against ur z06 beast! On the drag strip too!!

you can always use a little brake to help you hold the car a bit and release when the engine is revving at its sweet spot. that should probably knock few tenth off the acceleration time.

i was referring to your comment on M5's launch control.

but that works for all cars in general.


and it's how some magazines get some blazingly fast time. although it wouldn't neccessarily be practical since i doubt anyone with brain bigger than their balls will want to do it on their cars anyway.
