Did seem like it for some reason. I thought so as well. Thought it would have gotten there a bit faster. None the less a very fast car. My M3 can get up to 160 very fast. From 160-180 it is not that fast but will pull its way up there.

In our M3 we need about 5 seconds to get from 100-120 where in 5 seconds he gets from 100-130 which is pretty good.

It's a 7spd but reaches top speed in 5th gear. Pretty common for the corvettes as the last 2 gears are really LONG and not for acceleration.
