That's an incredibly enthusiastic report of the S350!

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked him to forgive me."

That's an incredibly enthusiastic report of the S350!

Apparently the first Autocar test was 0-60 in 4.7s and 0-100 in 10.7 but this was done on a streaming wet track.

Autocar then tested an S350 again and recorded 0-60 in 3.9s and 0-100 in 9.8s this time on a dry track.

Remember these are not manufacturer's figures but independent actual measured figures.

I cannot verify the authenticity of the figures but they are quoted in Jeremy Walton's book and presumably he has done the research.

Everyone be calm and step back from the book shelf!!

A car is only as fast as the man is good (mechanically unsympathetic) who is driving it.

Chances of a achieving a perfect launch without launch control or being a pro are hit and miss at best (more miss in my case)

Basically both the sport 350 and the diablo are fantastic cars and this was a congrats on your new car thread not a howfasthowbighownoisyhowhandlyhowmuch thread.

Now I'm takin mi ball and I'm going home!

A guy with a Lambo once told me, "You know the best thing about this car, doors go up, panties come down" :baby:

Went for a mosey through teh blackwall tunnel to make as much noise as humanly possible!

It has an awesomely brutal sports exhaust.

Diablo and an Esprit - Thats a mighty fine looking garage Robin!

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Nice car Fishy! Congratulations!

Have you found anyone to service it yet locally? Are you going to be using main dealer or independant? Iam curious as it's something I've been looking at for the future.

I thought the 3.9 0-60 time is for the 6.0 version?
