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?

Re: can this be for real? (pman81)

depends on gearing and when the power comes on in the powerband... since this is a twin turbo vr6 and not a naturally aspirated 8.0L v10... well... we can say that the power comes on a lot later after turbo lag...
edit: oh also, i don't think the viper is all that much heavier... the 4 mo sucks up power and adds weight...
