True 0 to 60 time???

Hi Gang,

I got my red beautiful GTS this week. I just LOVE it.

I get lots of questions about it from people.
One is the 0 to 60 time.

I look on line and I see everything this from 3.0 sec to 3.7 sec.
Does anyone have an official time for it???

Don't let the car fool you...

I don't think there is one definite time out there. I managed to find 3.5 and 3.6 seconds.

You can get 3.4 under the right conditions. I had it up to 312 on the long stretch of the connector from Merrit to Kelowna but that was on the downward straight.

Sonic...you're nuts! That is some crazy speed!

I would love to push mine that fast. Just afraid to get it impounded.

I use a Passport Escort Max 2 radar detector and I only peak out on clear stretch with empty road ahead! I hit 328 in my 599 a couple of years ago. I think the GTS would have done that as well but I eased off at the base of the run. Of course I'm nuts! The car is nuts too. Max 2 will never let you down!

Ever had cops pull you over for having a radar detector? I think some have a radar detector detector.

They are still allowed in BC and Alberta. Not sure about rest of country. Pretty sure illegal in Manitoba.

Run mine on an airstrip with vbox recorder. Engines still tight as it's just north of at housed miles.

0-60 3.5s
0-100 7.3

1.5miles hit 184mph.
