I don't know how these clowns get their numbers, anyway. They claim that a n/a S60 with automatic is quicker in the 1/4-mile by .3 secs. Who is shifting? My dead grandmother? And then, the S60 2.4T is only .2 secs quicker (in the 1.4-mile) than the automatic non-turbo? Yeah! And the 2.4T has the same fuel economy as the non-turbo automatic? Yeah! and...and...and...quote:

But the S60 T5 manual is a very quick car. The difference between an automatic and a manual (still in the 2002 S60 T5) is huge...very dramatic. Although a stock 1/4-mile time of 14.0 secs is very respectable, I guess it is possible under the right conditions...who knows?
