While that's a far cry from the 3.2-second runs extracted from the hard-launching secret mode, the abuse to the car means that real-world owners won't often - or ever - see such numbers anyway. The tests of the car's performance without launch control, conducted by Motor Trend, show that the human-only launch time is about 0.7 seconds slower, thanks to the lack of any brutal clutch-dumping antics.
The gentler takeoff is perceptibly slower according to the testers, but it's still quite quick in absolute terms, running the quarter-mile in 12.2 seconds at 119.2mph (192km/h). Zero to 100mph (160km/h) takes just 8.6 seconds without launch control. The 3.9 second 0-60mph time puts it within 0.2 seconds of the Corvette Z06 and Dodge Viper, and 0.1 seconds ahead of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
