However, for a TL Type-*, I've seen low to mid sixes in the 60mph sprint, so I'd be careful if you're running a bone-stock SSEi
You may be right.
Road & Track..... 0-60 in 6.5 and the 1/4 in 14.9 @ 96 mph.
Car & Driver....0-60 in 7.6 and 1/4 in 16 sec. - maybe it was at a higher elevation.
Well, at least it would be better competition to race a */C version of the Bonne instead of the N/A model.
I killed one in the early summer from a stoplight up to about 40 mph. Got far enough in front of him to see him in the rear view mirror, then I had to turn.
