There's some huge discrepancy re: Rockingham time. Here's the video of the M600 recorded time: http://youtu.be/v54CEAVEFWU

You can see the rest of Car magazine TT (for its 2009 Performance car of the year) here: http://www.youtube.com/user/tigrettin#g/u

The faster times (with the various cars driven for Autocar test) must've used a different configuration of the track. Rockingham UK (not the one in South Carolina, USA) is an oval track with an infield road course with various configurations: http://www.visordown.com/news/images/rockingham_track_layout.jpg

i understand that but i think it would make more sense if you erase the higher time!
same goes with the GTR...no way 96-100kph takes 0.2 seconds!
there are MANY cars with this same problem

The 0-60mph is from a different test than the 0-100kph. Whoever tested 0-100kph didn't record a 0-60mph time so there is no data of 0-60 from that test.

Obviously on the day the 0-100kph was recorded, 0-60 mph was quicker but if they didn't put it in the stats, it won't show up here.

this is so wrong!
how can the 0-60bph be more than o-100 kph?!
and the cars is said to be under 3 through 60! i know that autocar says 3.5 but MAYBE they couldn't put 650bhp on the road properly! just sayin!
