Thanks for the feedback -- the 0-60 time is listed as 6.5 seconds, which seems about right. The moon roof is an oversight, we'll get that fixed.

The 1/4 mile is listed as 17 seconds, which is our mistake: we were incorrectly attributing the base model's 1/4 mile time to the JCW.  That will be fixed in our next update.

Some of these 'specs' are obviously completely wrong.  A 208-hp car has a 17.0 sec 0-60 time?  Not bloody likely, mate. You can also get a moonroof on this one. 

Really need some editing/moderation on these specs pages.  Dunno where your scraping your info from, but it's wrong in a lot of cases, and this is just one example.
