    Well a Focus RS which is 300bhp with a LSD does 0-60 in 5.7secs so maybe around that time?

    However if an Astra VXR (240bhp) does it in 6.2secs ... then IMO either the Focus RS time is conservative or the VXR time is exaggerated.

    So perhaps a high 5sec time for your Astra?

    To get 5.7secs you'll need an LSD though remember the Focus RS has that revised suspension setup to reduce torque steer and help maintain grip etc.

    So with 300bhp & no LSD you might get 6.0secs but IMO that doesn't seem right considering a VXR with 60bhp is only 0.2secs slower.

    So either the Focus RS time is wrong or the VXR is wrong.

    IMO


    PS: Yes the new Focus RS is 5.7secs to 60.

    I had a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds at trax on the proper timing gear with 260bhp and no LSD about 4 years ago , i rekon at the same place now with 300bhp and the LSD low 5s would be possible.
