That is a really good question.

The various web/tv/magazine road tests have 0-60 times between 6.4s and 7.8s. On paper a 200hp 2,800lb car should be able to do 0-60 in the low 6s range.

My experience is like a lot of others, in that 0-60 times aren't as fast as I expected. I think I get around low 7s with a MT if I push it pretty hard. The MT can make the VT kinda tricky to launch fast because it wants to spin, or hop, the front tires and you run out of 1st gear fast and you have to hit 2nd pretty hard too.

The current thinking is that if you turn off the ECT it is faster 0-60. My limited experience agrees with this. But it also lead to my first encounter with the rev limiter.
