@Veyron

For this website, I think the ZR1 should have the quickest magazine time posted on the page (11.2). I've said it before as well.

That being said, Ranger's times were well documented as stock, but they should still be excluded.

Reputable sources only, regardless of the car in question.

LMFAO! Maybe you should head over to the ZR1 page and tell them that. No reputable source has ever gotten better than 11.2 1/4 mile and that was only once and no magazine or reputable sournce since has even been able to duplicated the 11.2 1/4 mile.
The ZR1 webpage has 10.7 1/4 mile on there are you don't want 13.662 1/4 mile for the R36. LMFAO.
Talk about being hypocrites!

Still waiting for a reputable source.

Independent driver, privately owned car, drag strip video does not a reputable source make...

Are allowed to have performance figures based off dragstrip times? We shouldnt, it's not representing the car's actual performance and is unfair to cars that haven't been to the strip.

Do you have a reputable source that shows this car running mid 13's?

The only link related to this car that you posted was from a year ago and it shows a flat 14 second 1/4 mile.

The Passat R36 does 0-60 in about 5.4 seconds, 1/4 mile in 13.662@ >100mph, and 0-200km/h in 22.7 seconds. The stats on this page REALLY NEED TO BE UPDATED.
0-100 mph in 14 seonds is LAUGHABLE for the R36, it's more like 13.5 seconds.
BTW, the US Passat B6 VR6 does 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 14.3 @101 mph.

Sorry, but the Passat 3.6 VR6 is NOT faster than the R36, at least the US version of the B6 Passat 3.6 VR6.
The US 2006-2010 Passat VR6 did 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 14.3 seconds @ 101 mph. I think the info on the R36 is TOTALLY wrong here. 1/4 mile is 13.66@ @ >100 mph, and 0-200km/h is 22.7.
This PERFORMANCE SPECS on this page REALLY NEED TO BE UPDATED.
0-100 is 14 seconds is LAUGHABLE for the R36. it's more like 13.5 seoncs for 0-100 mph.
Here's the info about the Passat VR6.

The Passat CC 3,6 V6 is actuallu faster than this because of the lighter body.

Any numbers on the Passat CC 3,6?


User avatar

VW Veyron SS  10y ago

A lot of the info for the R36 is wrong. The 0-160 km time is 13.5 seconds, and the 0-200km/h time is 22.7 seconds.
The 1/4 mile time was 13.66@ over 100mph so a 0-160km(0-99mph) time of 14.0 doesn\'t make any sense.
Here are the results courtesy of Autobild Magazine.

@sammyrs6

sources for your claimed numbers?

we have 2492 cars online and we can´t check every comment made specially if they get lost in the message flame wars like the CTS-V fanboys vs all other war or the SCC fanboys vs Veyron record war..

sammyrs6  10y ago

do the mods really look for updating stuff

this car is so understated on this page

the car does 0-100 in 5.4 seconds and 200 in 22.5 seconds and top speed is limited to 280 km

the gear box is a 6 speed auto DSG

Jehad Karaneeb  11y ago
