0-60: 3.3
0-100: 8.0
1/4: 11.6
trap: 119
top: 202
The Edmunds numbers were done in an environment that seems to closely approximate the old SAE (gross) Standard Day conditions (abandoned in 1971), while everybody uses the SAE (net) Standard Day numbers for ratings today. The difference is almost exactly 5% in terms of power.

What're the odds?


PS - Merry Christmas, everybody!
