I didn't have a stopwatch, but the ride I took in a certain member's supercharged S54 made me believe that he did 0-60 is right around 0 seconds. 60-0 seemed to take around the same time. I may have left some organs in that passenger seat.

For me it isn't the 0-60 lurch that leaves the greatest impression. Its the 40-80 move that seems to take only about 2 seconds in my car as I jump on a high from a crowded on ramp and around the slower cars merging as well as some of the cars already in traffic.

LOL! When I built Zoran's T/S (now Jen's) it felt like it did 0-60 in about two (2) seconds.

In any case, you could've melted and blown the tread off the rear tires in about one (1) minute, if you just held in a gear and smoked them.

The BMW Buyer's Guide by Fred Larimer quotes a factory time of 5.1s for the coupe, 5.2 for the roadster. These are famously conservative, usually by .2s or so.
