Alan doing the 0-60 in the ~340hp, road-spec demo Murtaya...in 3.5 seconds.
Just to recap, the Murtaya was 2nd-fastest in the 0-60.
The Murtaya beat other exotica, including Gumball 300 Club cars: Lamborghini Gallardo, Porsche GT3 and Carrera GT, and Ferrari 355/360s.
The only car faster that day was a very special 550hp Lancia Delta Integrale with launch control, flat shift, anti-lag, and sticky race rubber. A target for the upcoming race-spec demo Murtaya...?
Remember, the demo Murtaya was full road spec, including hardtop, power windows, Toyo Proxes T1 tires, and 340hp 2.5L flat-4. The gearbox, rear differential, and all mechanical parts were standard road car equipment sourced from a 1996 donor vehicle requiring a shift to 3rd gear before 60 mph.

same power/torque (at the crank) that propelled the demo to a 3.5 sec 0-60 and a 7.6 sec 1/8 mile (the latter of which was on a rainy day).
