Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / mid 11-second quarter-mile times
English term or phrase: mid 11-second quarter-mile times
The feat was accomplished by switching to an all-aluminum 5.8-liter V8, still with 32 valves, and upgrading to a higher capacity Twin Vortices Series supercharger that increased boost to 14 psi.
Remarkably, the xxx was capable of mid 11-second quarter-mile times and a 202 miles-per-hour top speed, as reported by xxx drivers at Italy’s high-speed Nardo test facility.

MUCHAS GRACIAS. No me queda claro como armar esa unidad.

neutral  Neil Ashby: Hi Pablo, I don't get "acelerando hasta el 1/4 de milla", you can't accelerate to a distance, only to a speed. "accelerating up to 90 mph". Does it mean "from a standing start"? / Okay, "hasta recorrer", that was my question as it's not my native language

  -> mid-70s - mediados de los años 70. "mid" has lots of translations, not just "medio" (which is more in the sense of half or medium/mean)
