No but you'd be a little ticked off in your supercar to have this damn Saab Aero, not *that* far behind looking at any of the numbers. 0-60, 5.6 vs 6.7, on the road that's not that much, after 6 to 7 seconds to only have one second difference or thereabouts. At that speed we are nagged to leave a two second gap. Then on the 1/4 mile, it's not that obscene either. On numbers alone, the Countach might have more HP but the torque isn't that high for the lower speed stuff, handy for the top speed but seriously, where can you sustain such a high top speed safely apart from the usual quoted places. It would be a fun comparison to do, sure the Saab will lose but fun to see by how much/little depending on your point of view. :) David.
