It should be noted that while Aston DOES claim a 3.4 sprint to 100, that's not its actual acceleration time. It doesn't even do that with a rollout.
The problem is that Aston Martin has a reputation of using prepped dragstrips as a way of taking advantage of rear-wheel-drive owners (not as optimistic as Dodge, but still pretty liberal with its claims). Excluding the rollout, the Astons are always slower than claimed.
By the way, I'd like to point out— that 136mph trap speed is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT. No way in ****ing hell is a bone-stock DBS going to trap that high in the ¼mile.
I don't trust those tests where the press/ringer car is the one being tested.
Car & Driver had a 911 Turbo S at 137mph, Huracan EVO AWD at 136mph, Shelby GT500 at 132mph, and a Hellcat Redeye Challenger (3.09 gear) at 128mph. The Aston, too, trapped 128— it was literally no faster in the quartermile department than the Redeye.
Motor Trend, I believe, had the 911TS at 135mph, the Huracan EVO AWD and the GT500 both at 133mph, and the Redeye also at 128mph. The Aston was barely faster at 129mph.
I mentioned those four cars because they are potential competitors to this car. If it was, indeed, trapping 136mph, then it would almost be on par with an 812 which traps 138-140 daily and actually reproduces those numbers. Even a 488 or a (Ford) GT can barely trap 135.
