"Turn 0-60 Heads in 1.3 Seconds"

For some reason my original post wasn't posted. I prolly did something stupid.

I was in my local saturn dealership Tuesday, and I was hoping they might have an ION Redline in. I go in and the receptionist calls for a sales clerk. I see a poster on the wall featuring the two Redline series vehicles with the slogan "Turn 0-60 heads in 1.6 seconds." When the sales agent (or whatever they're called) came out, I asked about the ION Redline. She said they didn't have them on the lot yet, but they did have two VUE Redlines in already. I didn't ask to see them since I didn't want to cause them any trouble what with me not buying one for likely a year or more. :( But that brings hope, the VUE Redline is in. She mentioned that some people thought that the Manchester, NH had one, but apparently it was a hand modified one. I think I remember seeing something on some website about some car being there. I don't know much about it. Just posting what I found out.

"prolly" isn't a word, not even spelled phonetically...

Now for the game of "I heard"

Someone with access to the plant build schedules let me know that 03/15 is the launch date for the Redline ION... I hope that's true...

Ok, the current build date is in March, and I have heard they will hit stores early April.

Oh, and in most stores we're called "sales consultants".

What is going on here?!?

You never explain what the title means, and it has no relevance to your post except you saw it on a poster :confused:

What does it mean anyways? (anyone???)
...are they giving the number of seconds that one needs to take off the 0-60 to make this car somewhat cool?

i posted this because i saw the poster. if i had any idea what 1.6 seconds was, then i'd tell you. i was actually hoping someone here could tell me.


maybe it's the 0-60 speed of the unloaded engine with an imaginary transmission that will go to 65mph in first.

i'm aware of that, that's why the topic is named that. i'm just trying to figure out what the hell the 1.6 seconds came from.


why not 2.0 seconds. then it would at least be 2.0L and have some significance,

I dunno. Why not .5 seconds? Now that would be impressive. :D

that would be dangerous. they'd get sued by retards trying to rotate their heads that fast and getting whiplash. you know the retards are out there... you know they'd do it.


on a side note: OMGWTF SOMEONE REPLIED TO A POST IN UNDER A DAY. that hasn't happened since, like... the forums were new. maybe now that it's out we can attract people here. since saturnfans doesn't have a redline section that i can specifically see. I think we might need a section for like upgrades and stuff. performance, visual, etc.
