0-60 times for the CSR 260 typically vary by 0.5 seconds because the 1st to 2nd gear change occurs near 60. Variation is affected by tire wear and the setting of the rev limiter at or slightly under the 8,000 RPM red line. There is less variation in the quarter mile time of around 12 something seconds. 1st gear goes takes you to 60. 2nd to 80. 3rd to 100. The quarter mile is complete before 4th gear runs out at 120. 5th is good for 140 and 6th is drag limited around 155.

^^ It also depends on the source. For example suppose an American magazine tests a car 0-60mph and on that day, on that surface, etc. it turns a 3.1 sec time. Then another magazine tests the exact same car at a different surface and records a 3.8 for 0-100kph.

It happens.

Depends if a gear change happens between 60 and 62mph.... that can easily add half a second.

0-60 is 3.1s it wouldnt take 0.6s to gain 2mph either

Maybe because the link above says 0-60 in 3.8 and the times listed here are actually 0-62mph

Anonymous  10y ago

he's right - the 260 refers to 260 bhp - and 200 refers to 200 bhp - how on earth cud the same car with 60 less bhp be 0.2second quicker to 60 than the csr260 - check your facts before posting

Not sure on a couple of things on this one..... the CSR 260 is a current model not from 1957?

EVO have the 0-60mph time as 3.9 rather than 3.1 quoted here.

The Bedford Autodrome laptime from EVO is actually the CSR260 Superlight version.
