Thats good marketing.
Is that really the point?? Look I'm a bot disappointed as well, but only one run in the car so far, versus many for the Turbo and times have varied significantly for the Turbo (best I have seen reported so far is just under 6secs)
As people have more time in the 8, the times will get faster and 6.16 is a good start I guess.
As for the $8000 difference in price.......Better Gearbox, arguably better sound from the engine, that magnificent bonnet!! Is it worth it?? For the V8 sound alone, I'd probably pay the difference!! But it's all personal preference.
