Generally favorable results. They like it a lot. Car weighs WAY more than advertised -nearly 4000 lbs with all fluids. Somewhat disappointing track and acceleration results - compared it to a Mercedes SL 500, and the Jag barely beat it. 0-60 4 seconds (pretty good), ¼ mile 12.3 at 116mph. (I was hoping for 12.0 at 120).
On the other hand, they also observed that the car “feels” stronger/faster than it is, which is a good thing.
Need to wait for the Americans to test it and see if they can do any better.
September issue of Car and Driver puts the V8 at 0-60 at 3.6 sec and the 1/4 mile at [email protected] mph. I will take my V8 to the drag strip next month. If I remember will post my times. I'm kind of heavy so that may slow it down a few ticks.
I think 4 seconds will be quick enough for a lot of people that will be buying the 4C, I feel that the 4C isn't just a track king but something someone who doesn't care about racing and just want a nice vehicle for the city can have.
