Can somebody please delete this car because there's a duplicate of this car. The reason is that since this is listed as a "Volkswagen Passat", it doesn't show up in the search for "VW" and it also makes it impossible to add performace specs or lap times for this car.

Can anyone EDIT the performace specs and year of introduction for the car on the figures?

Letters "SEL" remind me only one thing - old Mercedes S class. :D

0-60 is 5.7 seconds, 1/4 mile is 14.2@ 100.9 mph. 60-0 is 119 feet.
I think the European version would be way faster because of 20 extra bhp and launch control. I'd estimate 13.4 1/4 mile @104mph. 5.0 0-60, 155 mph restricted top speed for the Euro Version.
