F6 - acceleration/1/4 Mile times?

I know that its only a demo for now until the 6 speed becomes available but are they going to give the car to any mags for tests? i saw on wheels i think it was that there is a review but after a quick glance, didnt see any times.
By the numbers i would assume a mid to high 13 sec. can only imagine the pull after 100kmh, hell even my el fairmont ghia pulls nicely at 140

Low to mid fives for the sprint to 100 is what Wheels speculates(April 04)- standing 1/4 is anyones guess.

not really. The turbos have a 1600kg towing capacity as opposed to a 2300kg capacity on the rest of the range.

A 13.7 will be the estimated time and then it all depends on the driver ect.But it should be a 13 sec car all day which in fact make it quicker than the series 1 BA GT.

mid 6? They do high 5's. I expect Typhoon to do mid 5's and mid 13 quarters.

And isn't this going to do the GT the world of good, this is why I dispised FPV doing a 6T, a good way to kill of the name "GT" FPV.

Re: F6 - acceleration/1/4 Mile times?

High 13's are about right.
I spoke to a FPV guy at the Adelaide Motor Show yesterday.
About the same as a 300kw HSV. He also said the HSV would have nothing on the F6 in
accelerating capabilities at speed.
I asked whether a 5 speed auto will be available.
He said its been decided, but didn't say yes or no.

Re: F6 - acceleration/1/4 Mile times?

I'd expect a couple of tenths quicker than the GT, they have hobbled it after all. I would also hope that they've got something up their sleeve for the GT too - surprise announcement at the Sydney motor show perhaps?
