Exclamation Time for 0-100 km/h?

Anyone knows what is the exact time of 0-60 miles (0-100 km/h) for the EVO 8 (no mods)? Cause the 6.1 sec does not convince me..

This is the time for the standard EVO 8 (265 ps?) Are you sure ? Cause it weights 1470 kilos...My previous car (subaru imprezza gt) had 218 ps with 1250 kilos of weight and had 5.9 sec. So i find 4.8 a little bit.. extravagant!!

My apologies for being picky, but 0-100km/h is about 0-62mph, you should probably tack on an extra 0.1 seconds to that number

No, you are right Antioch. But i still think that 5.0 sec for 0-100 km/h is an utopia..

I'd love to see someone film a stock Evo doing 4.8 0-60mph.
And standard Euro version even has few horses less and weight is around the same if not more due to the stricter regulations.

i always thought it was 4.8 s but today i went to the mitsu dealership to check out the 04 evo and they told me that it was 4.5???? I asked if he 04 models are faster ( knowing that nothing in the engine has changed ) and they said no and that the 03 models are 4.5 too????????????????? is that a load of bs or what?

there was actually an article in Motor Trend magazine that clocked the evo doind 0-60mph in 4.59 sec. It was in a 10-car test with Mosler Photon, Viper, 575M, Murcielago and some other HIGH end cars. I guess with the right driver, anything's possible. BTW in the same test, evo ran a 13.08 @ 105.12 in the 1320.

I have a dead stock Evo and without revving over 3000 at launch clocked a 5.22 UPHILL. I have no doubt with an aggresive launch a stock Evo can do 4.6.

I think around 5.2 for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km) is probably pretty accurate. Most of the US mags have clocked the Evo in the 4.8-4.9 range to 60 mph...

The Evo VIII MR FQ-340 (there's a mouthful) - 0-60 mph in 4.2!!! Nice...
