I don't want to sound unimpressed but I thought it would be a little quicker than that.
I wouldn't worry too much - Wheels record their times with two people in the car, a full tank of petrol and about half a tonne of bricks in the boot.
For example, the Clubsport R8 M6:
Wheels: 0-100 = 6.5, 400m = 14.7
Motor: 0-100 = 5.89, 400m = 13.99 (Avalon)
WRX STi M6:
Wheels: 0-100 = 6.1, 400m = 14.2
Motor: 0-100 = 5.53, 400m = 13.79 (Secret)
The past Ford tests seem to be more on par though:
Ford XR8 M5:
Wheels: 0-100 = 6.6, 400m = 14.8
Motor: 0-100 = 6.35, 400m = 14.68 (Avalon)
Ford TE50 M5:
Wheels: 0-100 = 6.0, 400m = 14.1
Motor: 0-100 = 5.97, 400m = 14.01 (Avalon)
In any case, we will have to wait for the next MOTOR before we get any decent performance figures.
