Any hardcore enthusiast should know this by now. If you want to become one like me, start paying attention or start listening to your car. Your car is always telling you something while behind the wheel. That's how you learn.

No need to lie needlessly. On any car whether MT ot auto, once you are closing in on a redline it’s throttle opens up hence the rev build up and also that redline shows the car was on WOT.

Keep masturbating on your needless ego it’s not my business but don’t come here to lie thinking people will swallow your lies hook line and sinker.

Well to each his own!

All V6 Stick-Shift Lions.

Different characters, different performances, different fun behind the wheels on fun drives, different V6 engine songs, different Stick-Shift box screaming sounds and different intoxicating joy when geared into actions.

Thanks to Peugeot for making earth a heaven for me

Gear 1-2 transition time is slow in that car. Notice despite the redlining of that engine it took quite a number of time to get to speeds. That car is like an 8-9seconds 0-100km/h car.
It actually took 12 seconds to do zero to 100.
What?

Nice conversion by the way to OP.

The video wasn't made for 0-60 of the car (how quick the car can be), but specifically for the engine note on the 2 gears demonstrated on the video up to redline, as described on the video title. Borrow a knowledgeable/technical eye from one who has and watch the video, focusing on how rpm started the increase Vs one intended for 0-60 acceleration (WOT from 0km/h).

In the video, On gear 1, the throttle pedal was slowly depressed and stopped halfway before the floor before it hit redline. There was long gap or delay before I started gradually accelerating again after i upshifted to gear 2 from 1 (because i wasn't targeting seconds), which made the rpm to drastically dropped. The gear 2 took over at lower rpm for 0-60 purpose and the depress on the throttle pedal was much slower this time than earlier with gear 1 (watch both tachometer and speedometer on gear 1 & 2 and observe the pace of acceleration/rpm increase were different when I upshifted from 1 to 2, including the speedometer/vehicle speed). At no point did I depress the throttle pedal beyond halfway to the floor while on both gears during this test.

If you have zero skill, basic knowledge or basic skills on Stick-Shift (which is obvious on this thread from comments) and want to improve your skills, know that Stick-Shift doesn't require instant WOT or pedal to floor to hit redline (especially ones with powerful Engines), as long as the engine is sound. A small acceleration can take the revs up there, depending on right gear and right skill, unless you are racing where every second matters or doing 0-60. Immediate WOT is very unnecessary on Stick-Shifts for redline while in motion, unless on the automatic transmission that basically requires throttle pedal to be pushed and hold to the floor to achieve redline while car is in motion.

Ikenna, I no believe this one oo.

Redline without pedal to the metal?

Abeg oo. I have never seen a car do that Biko (unless you drop to a lower gear from high speed or going down a very steep slope in a low gear).

The rpm rose quickly, too quickly for that to be a gradual acceleration.

I no gree.

Next second their stupid criticisms affected you so much that you had to come up with another video to address their valid points.

The 2nd video was to prove your stupidity & unintelligence for ignorantly refusing to learn what is obvious to a sound technical mind that you can gradually accelerate to redline with Stick-Shift without pushing pedal to the floor. If you and your likes in this thread want to learn, watch both videos again to learn why there were differences on both tachometer and speedometer on both videos.

If I cared about your opinion and that of the rest of you, I wouldn't be driving a Peugeot, preaching positives of Peugeot to millions of people, let alone owned 5 V6 Stick-Shift lions, ever since your likes have been dying with hate on Nairaland, ever since I announced my Stick-Shift 505 v6 in 2011.

What a buffoon!

The stock 0-60 acceleration from new is about same 8 - 9 seconds. As I pointed out in my first post in this thread, this is a heavy coupé (weigh about 1,740 kg). Not as quick as the predecessor with same engine (my D9 V6 Stick-Shift), which I also earlier pointed out. But definitely not a slow car, even with the heavier weight, compared to predecessor.

Lol, this is all self consolation.

Mister, you have spent most of your adult life miserable and dealing with imaginary foes out to get you and your worthless vehicles, but I see right through you, I know how narcissistic individuals like you operate.

People like you thrive on this imaginary conflict with your made up "enemies", so while you claim to be above them, you simply are unable to function without them.

Your existence must be exhausting, I wonder how you do it. Perhaps it's why you seem to slowly be losing touch with reality.

That RPM was at red line which means he was at WOT, so his defense on weak acceleration is wrong.
It's either he's got it wrong with his clutch during the conversation or there's something else wrong with the conversation.
