Wink 2013 Mustang GT AUTOMATIC 0 to 60

Hi guys, I did a test drive on GT/CS AUTO 3.15 Gears. I am thinking of buying this car.

Factors :- There were two of us in the car, ESC was 'ON', its a bent uneven road, air condition was 'ON' and 87 Octane. It took 7 secs for a 60.


There is a lot of reviews showing a 60 can be made in 4.5 secs. I totally understand factors i mentioned above hinder the performance(0-60 times). Now here is my question, i will give it a 91 Octane, turn off ESC/Air condition and hop on a straight/less windy road, can i a make a 60 in 4.5 secs. I am not confident about it. I think most reviewers did it using a manual and 3.73 Gears. I don't care about how manual transmissions perform because i am not getting it anyway.


Added to my disappointment i did test drive a Camaro 2SS(Automatic with 3.27 Gears) and felt a little quicker. I didn't count the time though. It could just be my feeling and i could be wrong.

I am in the brink and was about to buy the car but after what i saw i am disappointed. Help me with your suggestions/experiences guys. Modding is always an option but i want to see what stock is really capable of.

Yes the autos are slower, but that's mostly because of the gearing. If that's a factor, then you can always swap that out later. But I would definitely do more scientific testing (with a stopwatch for example, or use the track package apps) if you think that any small fraction of time is going to give you buyers remorse.
