    Automobile catalog does not do their own testing and a lot of their numbers are either estimates or manufacturer claims.  Please provide a link to an instrumented test.  Thank you

    Indeed, they do their estimates on the vehicle accelerations, so it will be wise to not use them (even though most of the times their 0-60 estimates aren't even that far off to irl)

    As for their manufacturer claims section, I would suggest finding a review from sites such as Car & Driver, Road and Track, etc, and if they're all unavailable (e.g. car not sold in the US), I would go for AC's factory claims section.

    It's just my thoughts, not sure about others

    I just looked into the link Master3194 provided, and it was indeed under the manufacturer claims section.

    And the only review I could find regarding the ELR is the 2014 model reviewed by C&D. Couldn't find 2016 reviews anywhere.
    Their 8.1 second 0-60 result is only 0.1 second off from AC's manufacturer claims.
    Which means they aren't untrustworthy.
    And back to the 2016 model, as I just mentioned, it is listed under manufacturer claims as seen here.
    So honestly I just don't see the problem with using manufacturer claims, sure manufacturer may over or underrate their cars, but it's still something...
