Can you confirm that the 146mph top speed is electronically governed and not drag limited at its top speed. I wonder what the drag co efficiency of the CL-s is.Originally posted by croddy:
One thing I was surprized at was that the top speed was 146. I realized that with 260hp that it would probably be quicker than the IS, but did not think they would set the govenor so high.
We "Acura Guys" have already known this for months. It is a LUXURY sport coupe that is fairly quick in a straight line. I say fairly quick because after close to seven months of driving it, I'd like my next car to be at least a second faster 0-60. Can you say M3? Make some suspension mods, and it completely changes the character of the car.Originally posted by croddy:
Now I am really surprized because the Acura guys are quiet. Do you think they went to the store to get a copy of the magazine?

I guess it depends on what magazine you read. I have not read this article yet, but I will soon.
If I recall Road & Track compared the CL-S and the 328i back in June. The scale was tipped in favor of the CL-S. Again I thought this was an unfair comparison. Two different cars in two different classes.
