Take it easy - it's not like any of these results are 100% accurate.
Speedos are not syncronized, weather (wind), road conditions (uphill, downhill)

Please share your're own result instead of all this.

But for your satfisaction, maybe I should do a new run from 60-100 km/h (and not 57 km/h - big deal..!)
Flooring it at 60 km/h (and not 62 km/h) - and using correct timer..

I can measure again and put a right time watch. I never though that time watch from Adobe premiere isn't right.

And I can put one frame behind to put it in 60. Other think it's to measure with a gps.

One thing I know is the road is completely flat

@InCoGn1t0

Your test is all good to me :)
It gives a fine indication of you cars performance.
Just wanted to point out that stopwatch is "strange" - no big deal :)

No need to get so defensive, I'm merely stating if you want to do a fair comparison things should be measured consistently. Obviously there is room for error with a number of environmental factors which can affect performance.

I can do mine no problem, however mine is completely standard so it certainly won't be on par with your results.

Would be great to see result from a stock TBi.
Who knows, maybe not that different as we would imagine.

Nice :)

Stil using wrong stopwatch though.
It's counting the 1/10 of seconds from 00:00:00 to 00:00:30 where it correctly should be counting 00:00:00 to 00:00:99

00:04:23 = 00:04:69

Mine was 00:04:60

Real fun :)
5 gear 80-120 km/h in 4 sec?
Thats faster than a 510 hp manual Giulia QV... (4.5 - 4.7 sec)
And faster than your own car 80-120 in 4 gear (4.33 sec)

You really should use an accurate timer. I timed your 80-120 video to 6.6 - 6.8 sec.

My car does it easy in 6.2 - 6.5 sec on level road. And that’s with a +100 kg viking in drivers seat.
Surprised how effective the Novitec Powerjet 3 is compared to a 260 hp (dyno measured) remap.

In my world, road power beats dyno power..

This were my nunbers with real timer counter:

60-100 3 - 3.99s
60-100 4 - 4.89s
80-120 3 - 3.42s
80-120 4 - 4.56s
80-120 5 - 6.27s

Like i said before this were achieved reaching the speed and floor the throtle.

The 80-120 in 5 was made with A/C on.

Can you mesure the time from 100 to 200?

I posts mime here: 17.35s

Unfortunately it's not possible to do a 100-200 km/h test in Denmark. That would put my drivers license at risk.
Max speed here is 130 km/h.

Yesterday I had 3 good dragraces vs. a stock leased 2018 BMW 120i.
(I didn't know all that until later when I looked up the plate)

I was holding for red at a 2 lane open road stretch when this young fellow in his white BMW 120i stopped in the second lane and gave me a "nod"

The 2018 BMW 120i is a 2 litre 184HP/ 270Nm, 8 speed automatic, rearwheel drive and is rated at 7.1 sec 0-100 km/h.

Road was completely dry, but I was still on my 225/50 R17 winter tyres :(

As always I struggle to launch the 159 in good fashion, but boy have the Quaife ATB helped to prevent the "one wheel" wheelspin.
However, in the heat I forgot to disable "ASR" - but really don't know what the effect of that would've had.

Green lights:
Me doing "not a great" launch with slight wheelspin due lack of grip (winter tyres).
We were neck to neck in my first and second gear.
When I shifted to third gear where my TBi starts to pull like a train, he was chanceless. But soon we had to back off due speed and next lights.
In all three atempts, it was the same picture. Neck to neck up to some 90 km/h then me pulling away.

He clearly had the advantage of rearwheel drive, automatic and launch contol for the start.
It's simply so much more consistent.

I had the power and torque later :)
With 235/40R19 summertires, ASR disabled and a better start I could have been quicker of the line.
Now I can't wait to get the K04 Turbo installed and a proper ECU map :)

60-100 km/h 4th:
80-120 km/h 3rd: 3.31 secs
80-120 km/h 4th: 4.38 secs

Actually like these kind of times better.
50-130 km/h: 6.66 sec

hello,

I have changed the wheels of my alfa, in this case fitted a Sparco Assetto Gara, it's a light wheel compared with the 7 spoke horseshore. This ones weights 9.12kg and the alfa 13.16kg each.

Because lightweight wheels make diference in acceleration i decided to make the exact same tests and show here.

Here is the videos of the results:






100 - 200:
