XT 4.0 5 speed is possible for a 15.0 second quarter stock and should be good for a 237kmph top speed if delimited
XR6 auto is slower than a XT 4.0 even with the diff ratio
Xr6 Turbo 5 speed is very fast.. 14 for the quarter flat, sub 6 or the 100, top speed is autobahn capable if delimited.
XR8 5 speed is just a nudge faster than the turbo. in a line the XR8 will dip into the high 13s for the quarter and mid 5's for the 100.. But the diffrence between the XR8 and XR6 turbo is not a great deal. On the big race track they are seperated by ~6 seconds on a 9 minute lap. (ie bugger all!). Tight twistier laps might get the XR6 in front, longersweeper might get the XR8 in front.
GT will be a mid to low 13's for the quarter (13.6?). Conciderbly faster than the XR8 and XR6.
Auto to auto, the XR8 will pull a full car length on the turbo from the start. The Turbo will then keep that distance steady for the rest of 400 meters. This car length is enough to make XR6T owners regretting not buying the bulge in the first place!
The race track time is relevant only if they are running the same suspension set-up - which they are not. An AUIII XR8, with an appropriate exhaust and no speed limiter, will out-run an XR6T on a tight racetrack due to the superior handling and similar straight line speed. I haven't seen one yet keep up with me in corners - and a few have tried. From all accounts the BA XR8 will shit on the XR6T - particularly on a 9 minute lap.
I hope to find out on Friday how good it is. My car is having a service and the dealer is trying to get me a drive of the new one they have just received.

Yeap, that's what I've been told.
