    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'd rather have a Nissan Pulsar than a supercar.
