The STR had a sluggish automatic and shitty drag area, that's why it's slower. But it's a classic

those times seem a bit off, as the 0 to 100 MPH as 200 KPH is ~ 124 MPH times are significantly lower .. I cant imagine either car taking that long (5 seconds) to pickup ~ 30 KPH .. it just doesnt wash

30 kph above 100 mph (160 kph) can take long time because there is already high wind resistance.
