0-60 with a trailer is quite important. You want the car to be comfortable towing, not screaming at the limit and lurching its way to highway speeds.

More importantly I would like to see a 30-60 towing test to simulate on ramp acceleration and 60-70 towing test to simulate overtaking.

thankfully it has a V8.
seeing a torque curve would be great but i bet it has some really good torque output at the low RPM range, great for towing.

the Ferrari 458 italia has a v8, how many people tow with one of those? torque curves will tell you where your peak values are but i want tangible times.
