    The number is just an average.
    On optimal conditions and with a good driver, high 4's or low 5's are possible.
    Forgot to mention though, this car weighs around 1800Kg which is HEAVY.

    It's the same type of car the CTS-V is.

    I'd love to have one. :boink:

    Faster with a good driver, they're as fast as a CTS-V (5 - 5.1 seconds or so).

    Kind of like how the Impala and Taurus look similar, or the Camry or Accord. It's the tuned version of Australia's number two selling family car.
