    Question 0-60 in 5.1 seconds with hot tires and a launch. Really?!

    What happened to 0-60 in 4.4 seconds? At one point, the driver states, "...definitely within the realm of possibility that this car is a 4.9 second stock vehicle". So this guy who practically does track runs for part of his living can, perhaps, hit 60 in 4.9 seconds after a long burnout and aggressive launch - which would probably void the warranty. It sounds to me like the average driver (99.999% of everyone here) is going to have a hard time making this car move faster than an Infiniti G37 to 60...

    I think Edmunds tested it at 5.1 also. They apparently do the 0=60 run from a dead stop, where most of the mags do a 1 foot roll out which lowers the time by about 3/10 of a second. You also have to take into account the air temperature road surface and altitude. The Motor Trend G37 reference probably included the 1 foot roll out. They tested the CTS at 4.4 so that is the comparison you should use to the G37.

    Driving mine feels a lot like my 2007 vette and it was supposed to be a 4.5 second car.

    I don't know what mode the car was in but he said traction control was off, and he let the car shift itself he probably would have gotten closer to 4.4 if he had car in race mode T/C in competitive mode and transmission in manual mode that way the suspension would be in the best mode the shift mapping would be in its quickest most aggressive (.3 second shifts) and he wouldnt lose time shifting past the optimal rpm and he needed to do a brake torque launch to spool up the turbos

    Doing a burnout on street tires actually doesn't help.
