0-60 mph: 4.7s

Skidpad: 0.99g

Suffice it to say, this car is a beast. Enjoy the article.

now those are some speculated numbers compared to edmunds tests...i'm curious to see who's actually accurate???

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drive...;mktid=cj260233


0-60 = 5.1 seconds (4.9 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip)

1/4 mile = 13.4 seconds at 104.8 mph

G's on skidpad = 0.97g

BUT this is impressive... 60-0 = 101 ft!




we all know that this shows what a good/above average driver can do compared to a Race car/experienced driver so i'd be safe to say that the for average numbers for everyone who will buy this will be in this range:

0-60 = 4.9
1/4 mile = 13.4
skidpad G's = .98

It would be cool if they do road course track tests kinda like Top Gear to give a more visual perspective of how the acceleration, braking, and cornering ability go hand-in-hand. Hell, if they lend me one, I'll do it for them.

I'd like to see a good 15 minute video and the Z34's capabilities.

I'm interested in the "SynchroRev Match" gizmo for the manual, it does the heel n toe for you??? I would like to see it in action. Thou this car is awesome on the stats, I'm not sold on the looks yet until I see it in person. But I wasn't sold on the z33 either till I saw it in person and drove it.

Also that blue on the MT article reminds me of bmw m3 Laguna Seca blue. I wish I had that color for my z but oh well.

Looks like both Car and Driver and Motor Trend are quoting the 370 as being slightly heavier than the last Zs they tested. Not by much, though.
