Real World Performance

The following are estimated 0-100km/h times of various vehicles to give you an idea how the engine will perform in the real world. All estimated times for the WPVW engines in this list are for the base variant of that engine.

Note: Real world 0-100km/h times depend on many factors including vehicle weight, available traction, transmission type, gear ratios, car setup, driver skill, air density and more. We do not guarantee that the time listed below will be 100% accurate for your particular vehicle.
