It does 6.5 to 62mph, so let's say 6.3 to 60mph, but those are VW's #'s and they are usually high, so a 6-speed manual might make it in 6.0, 5.9. Does that help at all? Romour is it will only come in Tiptronic to the US so that would add about a sec. to the times.
how fast does an auto S4 go to 60 ? does this car weigh more than the S4? it has more hp and more torque ,
I think it will probably either faster/quicker than an S4 or be somewhere between an S4 and the S6.
the current curb weight is 3644 for a sedan 4motion, but i don't know how much more the engine, bigger brakes, and 17" wheels will add. i know the W8 is rated as one of the lightest 8 cylinders in the world, but it'll have to be heavier than the v6. what rumor about a revised gearing change have you heard, there's been nothing listed of that as far as i know of. the car is not coming as a 6spd as Americans have bought an incredibly few stickshift V6 passats to date. the S4 is rated at 5.9 and i doubt the W8 will match it due to the auto shifter. but i bet it'll eat it and many like it alive on the freeway. 275hp/271tq is going to really fun on the freeway, especially 275 N/A hp.
