Actually Motor Trend has gotten a 4.5 for the S5, and this has been matched by quite a few owners using a vbox

S4 ran 0-60 in 4.5 and 1/4 in 12.9 in this months road and track. WOW!!! Never seen any S5 numbers like that. S4 hands down winner, and it whoops the S5 around the track

Mr Sakimano, 0-60mph, is 0-97kmh, so theres a .2s difference, but that also depends on the car and shift.
