    S3 Versus 3.2 V6 Rolling Road Shoot out !!

    This was held at Clives this morning.

    A Shoot out to see the difference of two massively different Engines.

    The A3 3.2 V6
    The S3 1.8 Turbo with REVO

    Bottom Line BHP


    A3 3.2 V6 = 261.6 BHP
    S3 1.8 Turbo = 267.7 BHP (with REVO)

    So on paper nearly the Same, a soon as i have the graphs you will see some Massive Differences.

    Just waiting For Matt to E mail me the Graphs so you can see. I also took a short video of the event (which ill post up when i finish it)












    Hats off to Clive for Putting in the Time with Both Cars. At his Special
    Ł30.00 per Car Rolling Road Session (before Christmas) Deal [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Nice...

    Good power from the V6.

    The S3's torque shows though...although the V6 is a much nicer engine to drive with...

    Interesting results though...thanks for posting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    First up was My 3.2 and due to the smoother power delivery, it was fine.
    When Matts S3 started to weave side by side (the first time) we took a few paces back !

    Impressive figures for the 3.2, is it standard? If so you must be well chuffed.

    S3 is also inpressive. Just look at the torque! Wow. Also notice that the S3 is putting more to the wheels, than the 3.2.

    Surely this A3 3.2 isn't standard? Its BHP seems high to me.

    It looked a whole load more scary in the flesh. Myself and Brian both took a step back but Clive assured me my pride and joy was in safe hands [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bravo.gif[/img]

    interesting, compared my S3 Revo'd with my mates 3.2. Flat out from 40ish to 120 the performance is identical which shocked me. Thought my s3 would be faster with a 100kg weight advantage. However, at low in gear speeds my is alot quicker. We swapped cars and mine flet much faster even though it didn't appear to be on the sprint up the slip road onto the M1.

    The biggest difference was the S3 is much more of a driver car than the 3.2. The 3.2 felt incredibly soggy by comparison, the brakes are very over servo'd and the throttle is very sensitive at low speed making it a difficult car to drive smoothly.
