    You are missing the point entirely. The i8 is not a race car, and a straight line accel test is useless in proving otherwise.

    Maybe it'll help if I frame this differently.

    AC Schnitzer (i.e. modified and faster than stock) i8 lapped nurburgring in 8:19.8
    Stock M4 (back in 2014) lapped nurburgring in 7:52 - this is an eternity faster than the modified i8
    M4 GTS (so still factory, but highest spec) lapped nurburgring in 7:27.9 - this is two eternities faster than the i8
    Civic Type R (another car kinda designed to be a race car) lapped in 7:43.8

    To go full circle here, the whole reason we're talking about this is because you made a comment about the i8 supposedly being a race car, and I'm attempting to prove that it is definitely not designed to be a race car (whereas the M4 is more or less... and just for fun the CTR as well), and it's painfully obvious when you look at lap times which are objectively a better measure of performance, or race-car-i-ness, than a drag race.
    The CTR has a pretty hilarious 'ring time IMO - it's faster than some very impressive and very expensive cars. Tires seem to be the thing that makes ring times (somewhat) ambiguous though as there seems to be a big variance in what different manufacturers are using.

    I think it's probably really low because it only has to start a 3-cyl engine.
    The car can tow 14,500 kg though, so you can load your 5-ton rental for moving and pull it with an i8 to save gas.
