0-60 runs in the G70

Has anyone tried doing 0-60 runs in their G70 as yet?

Mid 4-second range seems to be what most sources are suggesting. I imagine real world testing will reveal more precise numbers and on board like this get interesting as more nuanced information gets shared with the numbers.

I find it interesting that the G70 has a better claimed 0-60mph time than the Stinger, even though the share the same powerplant. I know they are both just estimated, but Kia is saying 4.9 seconds.

I bet upgrading from the factory Pilot Sport to Super Sport tires will help and contribute to improvements in other areas.

I believe that the Stinger is heavier and larger than the G70, so that's going to have an impact on performance. Its for those exact reasons in head to head tests that the Genesis has been found to be a better planted and more manageable car in an out of corners.

Proves that aerodynamics play a big role in performance times. I have already seen some aftermarket tuning kits for the Stinger, so hopefully since its the same powertrain we see those offered on the G70 too.

Fortunately modern designs are proving that to be aerodynamically sound you don't have to sacrifice a lot. Sometimes the only time you sacrifice on design is to meet safety regulations.

Its only a matte of time before we see some performance chip modules for the G70 and I would imagine they will yield some decent gains. The Stage 1 chips on the Stinger are suggested a 35+hp bump as well as a 30% increase in torque. Best part is they are just plug and play so there is no fiddling with engine remaps or the ECU.

I'm interested in seeing how well these engines are built.
Toyota is known for building incredibly strong bottom ends and engines that just take whatever you throw at them, tuned or not.
Genesis on the other hand can benefit from a similar approach if they want to attract a rich tuning culture and vehicles that last.

Do we know what the implications are in regards to the factory warranty with those kinds of chip tunes? If you were to unplug/remove it prior to warranty work would Genesis be able to identify that its been used? And since this is specifically for the 3.3 V6, do you really need more than 365hp in a sedan?
