An explanation as to why relying on 0-60 mph figures from Motor mags as gospel is laughable. Firstly the most accurate timing equipment to gauge acceleration over the 1/4 is used by NHRA,IHRA and FIA EURO. The GPS used by most Motor mags is pretty good but not quite as accurate.
Let's compare a Tesla P100D Raven model to the fastest stock Huracan that i have available data to prove my point. The 0-60 feet and 0-330 feet timers on the dragstrip are valuable indicators to determine the potential elapsed time over the 1/4 mile and highlight how quickly they can accelerate from 0-60 mph. The Tesla has instant torque off the line and a superb launch control so it achieves a 0-60 feet time averaging 1.56 sec. The quickest i've seen is 1.51 sec. The Huracan by comparison generally averages 1.60 secs for 0-60 feet and the best i've seen up until now is 1.58 sec. What this means is that the Tesla always gets the jump on the Huracan and when one looks at the elapsed time from 60-330ft for both the Tesla is still fractionally faster, generally by 5/100 sec over the Huracan. BTW for those who say that a 918 Spyder is quicker from 0-60 mph than a P100D you're wrong. The best 0-60 feet time i've seen for the 918 is 1.59 sec and it's playing catch up until it passes the P100D at approx 80 mph
So what does this all mean you ask? Simple, the Tesla out accelerates the Huracan from the dig every time on a prepped dragstrip(optimum traction). At the 60ft mark the Tesla is doing 46 mph whereas the Huracan is doing 41 mph. At 330 ft the Tesla has reached 85 mph whereas the Huracan is doing 82 mph and reeling in the P100D. Testing the Tesla and the Huracan on a highway or racetrack will result in a similar comparison although the acceleration figures will be slower due to inferior traction resulting in more wheelspin.
So the bottom line is that the 0-60 mph figures posted in this column(for the Lambos and numerous others from what i can see) are inaccurate. I could list more realistic and accurate figures but we wouldn't want to bruise the egos of those who've swallowed some of the bullshit posted in mags would we now? lol
