No offense but until you have a precise race-track timed 0-60 measurement, documented with a proper statistical sigma calculation, no sane person is buying the mobile-phone-on-the-fly-tacho measured 4.3 seconds. Keep in mind 60 mph on your tacho is around 55 real speed, too.

The latest Audi S8 which weighs 450lbs less, has more torque and hp and an awesome 8 speed tranny, and, well, overall a faster car by miles, does 4.2s. The new m5 which weighs substantialy less and is, duh, an m5, goes 4.4s. Your f01 can't be on the same level, period. I'm guessing realistically you have around 4.7 not less. By the way, stock f01 is stated as 5.1 and *not* 5, this is yet another wrong statement from you.

The results seen from Richards car seem actually very realistic and they are also correctly measured and can be trusted.

You don't get a linear increase of speed after a certain point, this is physics and not primitive math.
