    Just as a comparison, the HGP Bi-Turbo R32 at GTI-i this year reached and well exceeded 60mph by 60ft! But with a 2.8s 0-60 its not surprising!

    I doubt it rich. it would have cut a 1.8s ish 60ft. Took 2.8-60. I'd guess 120 feet would be nearer the mark. On the basis an s3 passes the 1/th mile post at 65-68mph, it's going to take about a 1/12 mile to get to 60mph, give or take, so say 150m ish

    thats based on constant acceleration though which you wont get in a car, due to torque 'curve' and gear changes.
