    I once had a 4 cylinder Ranger that was a legitimate 20 second quarter mile vehicle (yes I actually timed it.....) but even that's a rocketship compared to this slug.... yeesh!

    Wow...my Accord can do that in just 12 seconds! I feel like I own a Lamborghini now.
    If we should give Abraham Lincoln credit for uniting America, then we should give Adolf Hitler credit for uniting Europe, as both men used the same methods for the same goals.

    OMG, that is plenty fast enough. Why on earth would anyone want to travel that quickly. The acceleration must suck the breath out of your lungs and turn the brain to raspberry jelly. Slow down young man, there is plenty of time, does it really matter if you don't get there till Tuesday?

    Oh dear! Perhaps someone should just shoot it and put it out of its misery.

    That would be a 2009 with 18,000 miles on the clock in fifteen states.
