I did that in 100 degrees weather so I know its a 5 second car in a more reasonable temperature. also I'm expecting to get closer to 4.5 once I instal my tune and spark plugs.
    Depends on the driver, road conditions, temp and altitude.

    0-60 times can vary widely from publication to publication; hence, look more at how various competitors fare against each other.

    MT got a 5.4s time w/ the 3.3TT G90 w/ H-Trac, so 5.3s for the G80 Sport seems very doable.

    MT got a 5.4s time w/ the GS F-Sport, 5.5s w/ the 535i, 5.8s w/ the E350 4Matic and 4.4s w/ the CTS V-Sport.

    MT got 4.7s w/ the A6 3.0T (C&D got a 4.6s time) so Alex's time for that seems a bit slow.

    CarandDriver got a 5.3 0-60 w/ a G90 3.3 AWD, curb weight 4824. I don't think some people posting here realize how much weather conditions and track conditions make in acceleration times. It's very important when comparing times. Also, since the 3.3 TT can use regular or premium fuels, which tests were using what fuel? A mix of both? Genesis says the 365 HP/ 376 TQ is made on premium, even premium fuels can vary significantly from craptastic cali 91 to quality 93 in other states. Fuel quality has a big impact on turbo engine performance. Now throw in the variability's of mass producing cars . Point is, acceleration times can and do vary significantly depending on conditions. I believe a 5.0 second 0-60 is entirely possible for a G80 Sport.

    Go to 0-60 Times web site and get all the times of all the cars made plus much more information.

    Won't be in 0-60 times site probably until C&D or R&T does an instrumented test. The big G90 shows a best of 5.2 which is impressive IMO.

    My reason was to show what the other cars do in their 0- to times. Look at the 5.0 R spec's for example. Can compare much more than 0-60 with a single organization publishing lists of cars/companies over the years. Very good source.

    It would be very nice if someone will actually dyno the car. Based on my personal feeling I think 3.3T is underrated.
