For our preview drive, Porsche planted us in the tranquil village of Hohenstein-Ödenwaldstetten. Here in the Swabian Alps southeast of Stuttgart, the deserted roads would be the epitome of peace and quiet if not for the distant shriek of flat-sixes being wrung out. The 3.8 is not exactly a tractor engine, but the 4.0 is a notable improvement. Its wonderfully linear power curve peaks at 8250 rpm, and torque does so at 5750. "A racing engine like this needs to explode at the top," says Andreas Preuninger, project leader for special vehicles at Porsche. Explode it does, but despite its 8500-rpm redline, the 4.0 accelerates smoothly and without any hiccups from just above idle. There is so much punch across the rev band that we often found ourselves a gear higher than we’d be in with the 3.8. The figures speak for themselves: Porsche claims 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds, 0 to 120 in fewer than 12, and a redline-limited top speed of 193 mph. Of course, the company claimed the regular GT3 would do 60 in 4.0 seconds, and we recorded 3.6 for that car. Figure on the 4.0 managing the deed in about 3.4 seconds, with the quarter-mile taking about 11.6.
畫底線的句子中是不是省略了什麼，為什麼是managing? 主詞是什麼? figure on the 4.0是副詞片語嗎?

例如Porsche claims 0 to 60英里 in 3.8 seconds, 0 to 120英里 in fewer than 12秒, and a redline-limited top speed of 193 英里時速mph. Of course, the company claimed the regular GT3 would do 60 英里in 4秒Source(s): 技術文件翻譯經驗

這篇應該是雜誌撰稿人應 Porsche 邀請
最後一句的 Figure 指 數值
但先前曾有 未認出片語而誤讀 的經驗
發現 figure on 可作 phrasal verb 使用
informal, count or rely on something happening or being the case in the future : anyone thinking of salmon fishing should figure on paying $200 a day.

“信賴, 指望, 計劃, 打算”
且前一句提到官方宣稱的 regular GT3 性能與實測間的差異
作者在最後一句確實在 料想（推論）4.0 的性能
