Aurions are not that fast.. my murder in law has one.. its auto.. blah blah blah.. anyway, ran my father in law from the lights, pulled pretty much even, it was the ZR6 model as well.. problem is there is too much ECU control on everything. plus they handle like a bucket of crap.. understeer, pick up rear wheels and stuff, chassis feels ok but really only gives feedback when its too late, to hard sprung. too many gay lights inside and buttons too.

But its a company car. thrash it and hand it back..

Just my opinion.

Well f**k you. 8-) No one here thought you could time 0-100 accurately with a video, and if you thought that you're the 'dumnb C***'. 8-)

You can get a pretty general idea though, and if you want to accurately time a video you don't need a stopwatch - but I guess you don't know about frames.

Toyota aurions are quick i would say a flat 7 to 100kmh and would do a quarter in low 15s. im not quite sure about this video maybe real but possibly edited ask the owner on you tube.

The motor, nor the voices sound sped up at all. The way the revs climb sounds right and the shaking of the camera doesn't mean bugger all, considering if they did speed it up it would barely be noticable by cutting a second or 2 out. if they multipied it by 2 then you'd get that effect.

My vote goes to not tampered with

Doubt they even tried till they saw you take off fast and then flattend it from behind you. I dont care what anyone says aurions are quick and ive seen a them in action and been on the recieving end of one and it would easily beat any EF XR6 Manual even if aurion is auto. Unless the ford has been modified.

You say you also beat an r33. It must of been a non turbo and probably an auto otherwise it would of flogged your backside. There must of been something wrong with your mates aurion. Take one for a test drive and then hop back into you car thats the best way to feel the difference. Nice looking XR mate.

stock r33 manual gts-t's (hard to find that are actually un-modified)are nothing to write home about, but they respond well to mods and a good tune.
