Zero to 60 mph: 4.5 sec
Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 5.1 sec
Does that make sense?

It's inline with the Q50RS RWD (5.0 5-60).

What doesn't make sense is the 13.3 quarter-mile @ 109mph. C&D got the same trap with the Q50RS RWD (13.0 secs) and the Q60 AWD @ 12.9 secs(in April's print edition).

Actually, C&D did 13.0 sec @ 112mph for the Q50RS RWD; Motortrend did 13.0 sec @ 109mph.

However, C&D did 10.5 sec 0-100 for the Q50 and 10.3 for the Q60. Something is not lining up with the 60's 1/4 mile time.

Well the Q60 is heavier, so all things being equal I wouldn't expect it to be quicker than the Q50

Maybe the standing start was quicker because you can stand on the brake to build boost as compared to a rolling start where you just stomp on it?
5-60 times are always slower than the 0-60 times, in most cars. Think it has to do with the gear ratio, not being able to access all the power in the car's power band.

I always assumed the time would be shorter with a rolling start as the car is already in motion. Didn't think the gears would have a harder time compared to a dead stop.
