0-60 time only tells half the story,the gearing and power delivery mean much more in the real world.

I wouldn't say the Saff isn't particularly a quick car though,and you don't know how hard the other drivers around you are trying.The official 0-60 time of a car is set by nailing the car and getting the perfect traction,which not everyone is going to do every time.

Apparently my Delta is rated as 7.5 seconds 0-60,but it feels a hell of a lot faster than that,but then your holding on to the steering wheel with grim death trying to control the torque steer.

I would say anything under 7 seconds is a true 'quick car',but as I said it depends on the characteristics of the engine,gearbox and driver.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
