A stock TT should be 5s to 6s (depending on driver) with average of 5.4s

A stock NA should be 6s to 7s

9s is shockingly slow even for an NA Z.

9 seconds would be bad for a manual NA, autos are somewhat slower in NA form, it's still not a great figure for an auto though.

can NA's even reach 100? didnt think they had enough time or room to hit that speed.

N/A is better, TT has the disadvantage of weight cause turbos are heavy.

Don't forget manuals have the weight disadvantage as well, cause the auto's don't have a clutch pedal = less weight

In the end though a lot of newer 6's will beat an NA. Aurions do low 14's standard i'm pretty sure and from a rolling start my mates 170rwkw FG XR6 manages to pip my NA.

so true. buy 2+2 aswell as it has way more better wind resistance because its 14 meters longer than the 2+0

My NA (2+0 and Manual) with Majority bolt on mods (see garage for full list) is 6.7 (or 6.6 can't remember exactly) seconds going by ECUtalk (computer that gives engine readings) but that reads 0-100 times in 0.3second increments (I think it was, not 100% sure though) so that means it got right on 6.7 or just below to get that reading of 6.7

something to remember also is that these cars are 20+ years old, so if your on the original motor which a lot still are, then performance will have deteriorated as compression comes down, clutches and auto boxs wear, suspension components not 100% etc. all this can and will affect a cars acceleration.

the figures quoted for a new car are not truly relevant to a car showing wear and tear, or for a car with modifications.

Absolutely!

Hence when I posted times - my comment

"If your car is stock, it'll be a bit slower due to age.
Not stock could be same or faster depending on mods."

In the clip - that N/A changed gears too early. Either wasn't "foot to the floor", or whatever holds gear on the auto isn't working very well. You may be quicker holding gear manually and changing around 6.5-7k RPM if you're going for best times. Change before rev limiter kicks in though (around 7.2k RPM?)

As above, if you want a quicker 0-100 time wind out 2nd gear all the way to redline because if you don't you'll lose time with the change into 3rd gear. Low-mid 7s is about what a mild NA will do, few more mods, good tyres and a good clutch then you can get into the 6s range.

S5 4.2?
My new NA only manages 0-100 in 7.3 (but it seats 7 and weighs over 2 ton)

I'd say stock NA in fair condition between 7 - 7.5 for a manual

9 seconds would be considered slow
