@Huh?
we put together numbers from different tests... 0-160km/h most likely is from a europen test driven on normal tarmac and the 1/4mile time is most likely driven by a US magazine on a drag strip with much better traction resulting in a better time...

If the MkVI does the 1/4 mile in 14.5 @ 100mph, how can the 0-160km/h time be 15.0 sec? Makes no sense.
