Hey Mason, thanks for commenting. We've heard "under 3 seconds", too, we're waiting for someone official (or even unofficial!) to give a precise number before we put something other than 3 seconds.
This is not accurate. The La Ferrari 0-60 is under 3.0 seconds, and it has more agility than the Aventador.
