    Prawn is right, Volcano is the fastest colour. If you google "Volcano A3" it is full of pictures of our cars lol

    That said, if we are talking facts red is the fastest colour due to having the lowest wavelength. Violet is the slowest colour.

    Define fast?

    Anybody can go in a straight line with 800bhp, a Megane RS 225 isn't a "fast" car but it can still lap the ring quicker than an E46 M3, 911 Turbo or that S3.

    There might not be a quicker S3 0 to 60, but there are plenty of faster A3/S3's with a quarter of the power in the real world. The fastest of which happens to be volcano black.;)

    Without opening this up to a huge debate....I think the OP needs to specify what 'fast' he would like from his S3 lol

    He may want a Santa pod 'fast' or a Nurburgring 'fast'

    Agreed that the Megane RS Trophy has a really impressive time around the ring (fastest FWD production car) ...but don't think it's as good as a 911 turbo? Yes it's quicker round there than an E46 BMW, but pretty sure the 911 turbo's are all sub 8 minute ring cars and the Megane is above 8 minutes.

    ^^^ this reply is bang on!

    and as for you, stop being a tit :laugh:

    E46 M3 vs megane R26 yes, fair argument, megane wins, but against a 911 turbo, or an 800bhp 4wd S3, come on chap, lets live in the real world here.

    Why do you assume that the 0-400 S3 has no handling mods at all? it's already proven that a FWD 8L can lap in close to 8 minutes, I'm sure a sorted S3 with similar power could do similar, so given 800bhp to get up the hills it would probably be sub 8 easily enough.

    They should do it then. Until it does, it hasn't.

    The 0 -400 S3 is a drag car, 8 second drag cars do not go round corners. Come on, you've played Forza! lol

    what is it with you and proving things that do not need to be proved?

    Around the bends, if approached at the same speed as a 300bhp S3, it'll corner like a 300bhp S3. having a million horsepower does not mean instantly poor handling, it just means that the straight line speed outweighs it's cornering capability, you're making wild generalisations that cannot be backed up.

    Yeah but you dont say it in a jokey way. Its either my opinion is fact and yours can do one or else attitude. Maybe change it and people wouldnt get pissy and you wouldnt get banned every 5 minutes lol.

    Just wanted to add that Black is the fastest colour without moving, you see black sports cars and instantly think they are fast. :cool:

    Black is also very quick at getting dirty aswell.

    I linked my logic to Forza; how much more blatant do you want it to be that it's a joke? :p

    Banned every 5 minutes, try once in over 4 years.

    I bet Bill won't keep my on the ignore list for long, it's impossible not to get curious and see what the ignored person is posting. You should try it with me Jason, as a bit of an experiment. You won't be confused by my posts and we can see how long you can go without getting curious?

    Or, I can promise to put a :p universal joke symbol at the end of any post not to be taken serious? :p

    -

    Yes Joe! I couldn't agree more, black cars are SUPER fast.
