Default Evo is in the Top 10 fastest cars!!!!

This is a test from 0-60 so its pretty understandable but there is a whole bunch of other cars that they could have tested.

I just happened to now look at the slide show at the bottom of the article and its stating that the Evo does 0-60 in 4.3 seconds.

Default I don't think so...

"Model: Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG
Zero to 60 mph: 3.8 seconds
Price: $179,100

The CL65 AMG from Mercedes Benz is electronically limited to a top speed of 250 mph. That means that the 612-hp, 6-liter V-12 engine could actually propel the car faster, but its control computer won’t let it. Two large turbochargers augment the engine’s muscle. This most powerful Mercedes AMG ever built offers more than just brute strength. It carries four in luxurious comfort, with features such as heated seats upholstered in “Napa” leather in a choice of three colors. Its five-speed automatic transmission responds to shift controls on the steering wheel. While it doesn’t disguise its power, the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG looks more like a street car than some of its speedy competitors. "

Someone is kidding someone. >250 mph? I don't think so.

Ok, my bicycle is electronically limited to 300 mph. And I paid extra for it, too!

Yea I'm not buying the 250MPH thing.
However if an Evo does 0-60 in 4.3 that's really impressive for a car with a sticker price of $29,000

If they tested an fq model I would believe it. I did read an article in speed mag. that claimed the new mr could sprint to 60 in just 4.4 sec.

Took off down the hwy the other day against some kind of motobike. I floored it, he twisted it, he looked like a dot fading fast in the distance. Pulled up next to him at the next exit. Asked how fast is that thing? He said, never topped it out but I hit 175 on that run. Still falls over though. Hwy 61

I'm not positive about the true cost, but when I was checking out the RS it was around $26,900 I thought. However, if you talk to a Mitsu dealer, he'll tell you that it's worth $35k minimum.

what about the new Vette, isnt it 0-60 in like 3.8sec or something?
Anyways, the SRT-4 can do it in half the time. It must not have met the minimum requirement to be published...
no.. wait. That's right. The SRT-4 is so fast, they couldnt time it's 0-60 time, and it was not allowed to participate.
