    Talking S3 8L used as top gear camera car!

    Just been watching the Lancia Stratos episode of TG on Dave. And noticed a Matt black S3 with camera mounts on parked up off track!!!

    It was lowered, bigger than std wheels and I assume it may well have been mapped to keep pace with the usual £100k+ cars they test.

    Love it

    It was probably an A3 with S3 bumpers to keep up with the Ferrari's and Porsches.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
