Here is a video of the V2 at Tribeca Film festival that says 0-60 in 4 seconds in one of the titles.

Just watched it. Cool. Jim Taylor sorta hints at 4 second club which could just mean below 5 seconds, but then it screen splashes a pretty hard 0-60 in 4 seconds flat claim. Always figured it would be really close to 4 flat anyhow. Betting some mags will get less than 4 seconds if the claim is actually 4 flat. Would be stupid to claim below 4 at all as they kinda got muddied with the first V and some places having a tough time reaching the claim they made with it.

This sounds familiar....


As a bit of a teaser, I think I can assume that everyone here thinks 4.0 is nice round number, right?

Something's not right in your equation, because the '09 is going to do 0-60 in 4 flat.

This entire forum for the past 4 months with the exception of a few pics has been nothing but rehashing the same BS.

CMON CADDY, GIVE US SOME REAL INFO!!! WE'RE DYING HERE!!!

Will believe it when Joe Average can do it day-in and day-out with data to back it up (G-Tech, timeslip, etc.) and not just Heinrocket under ideal circumstances.

Better version...

Do the math on how much power difference it takes to accelerate 4500 pounds to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and then calculate again for 4.9 seconds.

P.S. Joe Average with a stick and 550 hp can't get there.

I'm waiting. :)

4500 lbs? I thought it was 4200 manual and 4300 automatic?

Boy what a pig!

Oh Lord, I'd bet if you took an old ('03) RS6 and put on a set of drag radials you'd get awfully close to 4 flat.

With the kind of numbers the CTS-V is making, it's all about grip (and, in manual-transmission form, the driver's ability not to waste it.)

Now add gas and driver. Or do you expect an empty car to run to 60mph?

The automatic will handle it. Mash and go, flat 4.0:thumbsup:

Even if Joe Average cant hit 4 sec flat every time it's still Fast as S**T

I remember several of us, quite some time ago, saying we might see 0-60 in "under 4"... Looks like we're pretty close... That's pretty impressive.. I bet someone will get a stock V to 60 in 3.9 at some point or another..

I'm Sure one of the Car Magazines will get it under 4 sec and it will be the headline on the cover.

would of been better to see him start the car with a push button...:hide:...

It's still totally keyless. Turning a knob is much better than a pushbutton though, as far too many people with push button STSs have called us after leaving their car running, double tapping the OFF button and leaving it in Accessory mode all night and killing their battery, etc, etc....

The ease of use and functionality is the same, but the twising of the knob is more intuitive for most.

I agree with this 100%, but it still isn't seen as premium to most for some reason?? Now that Accords and Altima's have the buttun I don't see how it is premium anymore though?

It's a fad, just like the silly automatic seat belts. Remember those monstrosities- the ones that would hit you in the face if you were leaning forward when you inserted the key? :lol:

All I care about is not having to remove my key from my pocket and not having a fob dangling from the column hitting me in the knee while I'm driving. From there, it doesn't matter how I start the car- pushing a button, turning a knob or clapping my hands.

Yep. I actually like the dial on the column with keyless go as it's kinda different. Maybe they can put the dial down by the shifter somewhere, but keep it as a dial.

Who ever said the stick was going to be the quick one? Joe Average can hit the claimed number every day in an automatic.

It's a throwback to the 1930s, really...

What's low-rent? Pedal parking brakes, particularly the push-on, push-off flavor or the traditional Detroit kind that release with a big THUNK! when you pull a handle. Any pedal parking brake is unacceptable with a manual transmission. And the worst of the breed is that thing Nissan's got in some of their cheap models where the pedal is out in the middle of nowhere, supposedly leaving you dead-pedal room on the left. That's as big of a 'I would never buy this' as the motor-mouse belts were.

As for how you start the car, I could care less. I don't even particularly mind keys. Though it's kinda tacky when the number of key combinations is so small, like with Fords, that you find your key opens your friend's car...
