For the record, I jumped in the car really quick with Chris Paukert from Autoblog. That's him driving; he's probably doing 8/10 to 9/10 for most of the shot. I didn't have a chance to set up the camera rig for a more steady shoot, unfortunately. I just used the video mode in my Nikon D5000, which isn't exactly a hi-def setup. Sorry the video quality wasn't higher.

As for the 0-60 times, the track was damp (as you can see in the video) and temps were around 50-55 degrees, so getting a good hookup was a challenge. I have no doubt a 4.7 is possible under the right conditions.
