Anything under five seconds should definitely be considered fast, but in fairness, much of the competition will eat this thing's crumpets in a drag race.

Again for comparison, the 760Li can perform the same lap in 25.5-seconds at .75 g, the Ghost did it in 26.3-seconds at .72 g and the Panamera again amazes at 24.4-seconds at .81 g. Clearly, the Rolls and Bentley are similar in their mission of providing more comfort than performance, while the BMW and Porsche are far more concerned with being driver's cars.
