0-60 in a 2001 Chevy Malibu
Actually, when I looked at the movie later on, it turned out to be more of a 0-70 run! The accelerator has to be feathered off the line due to the cold pavement and narrow snow tires. It is set up to shift about 300 RPM before red line under full throttle, as close as one would want to get with a car they have to use for their daily bread transportation, it helps with longevity. Kilometers are 213,000 or 132,000 miles. The car was in 3, not overdrive, thus the sharp eyed would notice the tachometer at 3000 RPM at 70. In overdrive, the RPM at this speed is just over 2000 RPM, giving nice, quiet and long-legged cruising.
