Anyone know what the stock VN SS does? The Aug '91 edition of wheels did a comparison test between the XR8 and the VN SS. According to wheels road test, the manual SS ran the 1/4 mile in 15.9 seconds. I expected it to be much faster.

And a McLaren F1 is quicker then all of them, but its not a local sedan that was released in 1992 either.


And then that Bugati thing made by VW is even faster again...
