In the calculations it shows all 3 cars with a lower 5-60 than their respective 0-60. Mid 3's 5-60 is not going to happen.
Not a guess as the the curve an exact torque curve vs rpm is used in the simulation and I posted it. It is shaped just like the F10 M5 curve but has the rumored 395 ft lb torque and my assumed redline of 7600. Indeed those are assumptions. Again, please recall that the current car has been clocked by a magazine 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. You can extrapolate with more power, less weight, wider and perhaps better tire, stiffer chassis, etc. what result is or is not reasonable.
