Remember way back when I posted that the 0-60 time would be 4 flat, and there were a few people who said it was impossible? I think they also said that I have no advanced information and am "just a typical Salesman".
Where are you now, non-believers?
All I remeber was my post to you when you said the info was coming out "soon". I think that was 3 months ago. As for the 4 flat or around there, I don't know who would have seriously doubted that besides someone with no grip on physics. So when will your advanced info have a price for us since it did not have all of this info? Curious to see how well that crystal ball works.
Might be limited by the heat that automatics tend to generate. The one prototype at summit was running a trans cooler with it's auto. Might be the new Achilles heel for the V. I see the aftermarket now!

Yes I would love to see the pricing crystal ball, mostly because I have seen no legit predictions just speculation. If somebody nails loaded MSRP within 3-4k I will call that a crystal ball as of today.

If I'm not getting my information jumbled in my head, I think I read a while back that the AT gearing would be shorter (final drive maybe?) in order to keep it's accel. on par with the manual. That would result in a slower top speed.
