A standard Mk5 Golf GTI which is ~1400kg and 197bhp will do 8sec 60-100mph or even less on VPower.

60-100 Times :: TorqueStats.com in case you were wondering.

For a heavily modified S/C Mini Cooper S, 8sec 60-100 is slow.

Here's my Dad's standard Mk5 Golf GTI doing it from a steady 60mph to 100mph in a smidge under 8 sec. This is a 55 plate car running 95ron fuel. As standard, this car is 197bhp with 207ft lb or torque and weighs ~1400kg



I'd expect a heavily modified S/C Cooper S with what, 240bhp? 200ft lb and ~1100kg to be a little bit quicker....!!!!


As for those stats which you posted... they all look like either in gear times or merely calculated from taking the 0-60 time from the 0-100 time. Neither of which are a true calculation of a real 60-100mph time.

There's no way the following would be slower than a standard Golf Gti:

Subaru Impreza STI 330S 8.3s
Lotus 340R 8.0s
Subaru Impreza P1 8.4s
Nissan Skyline R33 GTR 8.0s
etc
etc
etc.......

Canned_heat.......THE MINI IS GOING 60-130MPH NOT 100MPH!!!

It gets to 100mph in about 4.5secs if you watch!
Your dads Golf does it in 8.5secs in that vid.

Still think the Mini is 'v.slow'?

:p
You sound a little confused.

We're talking about the 'heavily modified S/C Mini here', as mentioned in the original post... The 'test' as mentioned was 60-100mph and the quoted time was 8 sec.

Where on earth did you get 60-130mph from? I only posted the vid of my Dad's car to prove that 8sec (and it is 8 sec if you count properly) from 60-100 was slow.

My apologies, I thought we were talking about the Mini in the youtube video whose 60-130mph time is coincidentally 8 secs! (thats where I got 0-130mph from)

Yes I can count, but I never rely on my brain so I used a stopwatch. Came up with 8.5secs Remember if you're just 'counting' to start with 'zero', rather than 'one' when the speedo hits 60mph....

I agree that 8secs isn't particularly fast for a60-100mph time altho still fairly respectable for a 1600cc hatch thats a bit porky for its size.

honestly all those times u posted.....they must b in 5th gear or something because they is no way, not a chance that some of those cars take that long to do it in optimum gear!!! ive had a look at that site and it just seems....wrong! lol

and yeah roland, if i was plannin on getting my rear brakes changed by you anytime soon, would i be able to use it as a loan car whilst u were swapping them ;)

As much as admire your highly scientific methods to debunk the stats ;),i think they're based on manufacturers figures so, if anything, they're likey to be a bit generous! I'd love to be proven wrong tho if anyone knows different?
