I think so, too. Caddie Southstar-equipped boats often go 0-60 in aroun 
6.5 to 7.5 seconds depending on which boat it was installed to. If it 
didn't do neck to neck with the S4, it should be very close behind you in 
acceleration if the dud truely nailed the gas through the fire wall.

I met one dud who truely nails it to the floor. He was driving one of 
those "S" class MBs. It's quite facinating to see the humungo car 
accelerat that quickly.

Of course, throw in a curve or two, than it's another story.
