Short of Motortrend's wacked 0-100 everything looks fine :dunno:

Driver skill and track conditions play a huge role and the times really are close enough to be pseudo-consistant.

To qoute a local fellow here:
"I've never even drove a Viper and now you're asking me to race one?"

and then he was in a Viper for the first time going down the 1/4 mile :yikes:

It really was quite funny :D


edit: and yes the new M Roadster is one quick machine even with the castrated exhaust. Don't have the specs with me - but isn't it lighter than the M3?

Re: The wisper numbers

Almost like the wisper numbers before corporate earnings season.

A guys on roadfly said Automobile and C&D got 4.5 for 0-60 for S54 M Roadster.

I know a pretty fanatical (enough to try it)guy with an 01 M Roadster that said he did his own (I was not there so it is heresay) and was around 4.5.
Motortrend's 4.7 is pretty close then.

I'm also willing to bet that the roadfly guys are @ sealevel? I don't know if the others are corrected or not.

Time for you to head out to the 1/4 mile and do your own tests! :thumb:
