0-60 in 3.3 seconds

1/4 mile in 11.6 @ 120.9 mph

Impressive numbers for sure!  This apparently is a Japanese spec car with 1500 km on the odo.

I still want to see 0-100 + 0-150 times, lap times, as well as same day testing against other vehicles they compare it to.  They do use clever wording calling it the quickest vehicle they have tested, when the Viper smashes it's 1/4 mile mph number.  Also, the Z06 performance numbers they reference are off, the car is capable of significantly faster times than they achieved.

Still, this is a great performing car, especially in low end acceleration!

Sequential manual tranny as well. Most people out there think it's an auto with manual shifting but it isn't. This leaves the door open for a true manual down the line.

I can't believe there aren't more people commenting on this especially after the few threads we have had doing hypothetical comparisons to other production vehicles..........

The Jap and US spec vehicles should be pretty much the same, but ya never know. I have heard that Japan may get a v-spec version pumping out more hp.
