AV6 Coupe 6MT on motorweek!

I hope this isn't a repost.

I saw the new motorweek this sunday with the new 8th gen coupe on there. The new TL is on this next sunday!

Motorweek ran a [email protected] 0-60 in 5.8 seconds!

i graduated from a 0-60 in 12 seconds car to a v6 coupe and its plenty fast fer me!!!

mags are paid to write and i've heard that it makes better business sense for auto companies to 'under-claim' the perfomance/mileage etc figures rather than be pompous (and release unachievable numbers) and face a god-knows-what class action lawsuit!

dunno how true this is though.
