    Astra OPC (VXR) - 0-60 = 7.3secs?


    Click here if you cannot see the above video...

    Dry road too.




    Golf mk5 R32 managed 6.5secs & the BMW 130i managed 6.3secs.


    Yes it's in German but it's written on the screen at these times:

    4:07
    5:00
    5:55


    Bad driver? Yet managed the correct times in the other cars .... crap equipment? but seemed pretty well timed, not a stop watch & reactions lol.

    Opinions?

    the point is?

    R32 4 wheel drive
    BMW Rear wheel drive

    Both cars not placed or marketed in the same sector to the astra OPC.

    The 'point' is something you have completely missed. Official 0-60 of the OPC/VXR is 6.2secs IIRC, therefore making this test 1.1secs slower than what VXL/Opel state yet the other two cars are pretty much on the money. PS: I did not make this video, my ability to speak German isn't quite as good as the bloke in the video and therefore I did not pit these 4wd/rwd/fwd cars against each other, but that is not the point of this thread at all... I thought that was clear in my first post, obviously not.

    not the first to be economical with the truth nor will they be the last. There are various ways around official published times and figures.

    Ultimately the car is only as good as the driver and many other variables anyhow, so does it really matter?

    It's a forum for questions isn't it? Why are you being so defensive?

    Using the stopwatch in both mine and Gaztd's weve both managed 60 in 6 and a bit seconds.

    So maybe a bad day, bad change. So many different factors that could account for the extra second.
