No way. AWD just means it will do well in snow and icy conditions and on launches.
I don't know if my last post made it up or not, but all I meant to say is that the SVTf is not fast. It's not fast at all actually. It posts good numbers in the slalom and it's superbly agile in the twisties or back country roads, and sure it will beat the doors off an EX honda civic. But fact of the matter is you're still only at 144WHP and most of that doesn't arrive in first gear until you're already at 40 miles per hour, so I'm not surprised at all.
