My Linea does 0-100Kmph in about 11.5 Secs now. Definitely the stock car wont take extra 6 longs seconds to reach 100Kmph. I think they do that knowingly as Skoda,VW,Hyundai,Honda pay more money so say there car is better than the Linea and on the other hand Fiat might have said, "we are not gonna pay a single paisa" so! hehe!!
