Question HSV performance (claimed) figures....are bull?

HSV claims that the new 285kw (DIN: 292kw) can do 0-100 in 5.3 seconds. they also claim that the 260kw verson did it in 5.5 seconds. these figures seem a bit optimistic as the best i have read the VY1 to do was 5.7seconds......do you really think that the new can do it in 5.3 or is the claimed figures bull? also the VY1 GTS (300kw) did it in 5.3 aswell. what are your thoughts?
i reckon FPV got some catchin up to do......again...

I think they are being very optimistic with their claim's,I'd much rather believe CSV and their output of 330Kw with 0-100 in 5.3 sec and quarter in 13.5.

Everyone knows their vehicle speed times and vehicle weights have been dodgy for years.Gives the meat heads(usually holden supporting toyota drivers)some false amo to give us sh#t.
