The acceleration greatly depends on what trim/model you are driving.
The base model doesnt even make 200hp while the highest trim 30r-se makes 320hp and over 300lbs of torque. I have owned the 30r-se sedan and I have no doubt in my mind that the car can run low fourteens. It could run down just about any sedan of its day.

hey i just checked out a website http://www.torquecars.com/tools/quarter-mile-time.php that calculated the diamantes 1/4 mile time to being as low as 14.2 secs, so maybe this guy was telling some truth after all? i\'m suprised as everyone else believe me :S

ok i\'ve had enough of this little debate i know the accurate quarter mile time for the japan diamante since this guy says he owns one, the one i found online that was tested did 14.5 secs, not exactly low 14 seconds but i\'ll admit it is quicker than the 15 secs this site gave it credit for.

hey a 2010 acura tl does 0-60 in 5.6 secs an does 13.9 in quarter mile, that an the diamante do the same times, also the diamante is heck of a lot lighter so this doin a high 13 sec - low 14 sec time isn\'t too far fetched to me....ya\'ll people jus underestimate this car too much

a civic si does 14.9 secs in quarter mile a diamante an i mean the 270hp version not the american 210 weak one, is way quicker than it, so 14.1 isn\'t that hard to believe for me.

I have the same car, with out mivec, and as for pic up time for it with out pushing the car is pretty slow due to the amount of revs and the case to get manuel is next to impossible.

Was your test run on a 100% stock car with the original OEM tires? FL has no idea how valid your claim is without a reputable source.

who said i ws jus claiming numbers? i did a test run and had the run timed, and further more diamante's no longer are in production so how can any car mag test them now.....

stop claiming numbers without any sources backing up your claims. My cars does 5.0s to 100km/h because I tell you ... such claims are pointless. Show a car magazine with better tested numbers and we change the data

it does 0-60 in 5.7 secs and does a quarter mile in 14.1 secs that 15 sec is a lie either that or the joker that did that time can't drive a darn car worth jack
