Additional Info: The automatic geartronic transmission version gets to 60 in just over 7 secs. Auto’s from 2006 are much stronger and allow full use of all that torque while the earlier 5 speed auto’s were limited to around 260lb-ft of torque. The R has many upgrades over the T5, not all of it to do with increasing the cars performance. Some sources have the 0-60 time closer to 5.5 secs.
