Official 0-60 time for AWD RS?

Does anyone know the official 0-60 time for the AWD 400 RS? Not sure if anyone has tested it but what this article is stating doesn't seem to be right:

"The AWD model is reputedly capable of 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprints in just five seconds"

First Drive: 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 ? it may not be Godzilla, but we?ll take it

I understand its a heavy car but I would imagine the 0-60 time would be below 4.5.

Thoughts? And apologies if this has been discussed before.

Depends on ambient air temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, elevation, road/track surface, and weight of driver.

Motor Trend tested a 2016 Q50 Red Sport RWD and did 0-60 in 4.5. They assumed the heavier Q60 would do about the same.

I believe Road and Track had it at 4.4 sec. Not sure if that was tested or just manufacture stated.

The time you quoted is 0-62 if that makes a difference. I've seen 0-60 at 4.5 sec

Majestic White Q60 Red Sport. White interior. Illuminated kick plates. 20% tint all the way around. Valentine one radar detector and dash cam hardwired into rear view mirror using invisicord.

I have read on a few tests that the AWD RS does 0-60 in 4.4 to 4.5.

Personally I think there all copying each other and no one is scientifically measuring anything. Here is one of many sites that are focused on zero to 60 and the 1/4 mile speeds but I just don't buy that they are actually doing real tests.

Depends on which version they test and if they pre-rev or not, I think a pre-reved AWD is in the 4.5 range while a non-pre-reved RWD is mid 5's. AWD seems to have a ~0.5 advantage in the 0-60

So if a RWD did it in 4.5, I would expect the AWD time to be a bit better (especially with some wider tires). Curious to see an actual test with a v-box or something of that nature.
