can this be for real?

it all makes sense to me except the part where it says the car only does the quarter in 12.99 seconds. i'd think that something with 508 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque could go a little faster. vipers are about that fast, but they have less power and are a million pounds heavier. does this make sense to anybody?

manufacturer 1/4 miles are usually a lot slower than what people post on the track. Corvette ZO6's are in the 13's, Vipers are in the high 12's, etc.
The biturbo has very little lag, and the 0-60 in 4.2 is dog slow considering how much power it has and it's AWD system. Most likely will do better with decent tires and driver.
