    These data have been published by Audi Driver Magazine, and thought folk might be interested

    I've just pulled out the S3 numbers but the magazine also compares them to previous S3's and the old RS3.

    Pretty nippy ;) and I think the S-Tron would be even quicker

    Also the conditions were cold and damp, so traction was a bit of an issue, even with quattro for their launches they said. They were on Summer tyres, the standard Contisportcontact 5's

    The most impressive figure there is the test mpg above 30!

    Especially if they've just been launching it!!

    S-tronic is about 10 secs so a manual add a second ish.

    Done a 4.7 to 60 two up on a slight incline with a vbox (same as what the magazines use).

    Anyone seen official S-Tronic S3 figures by any magazines? (other than simple 0-60)

    Hi Dave thanks for this but was looking for the equivalent S-Tronic S3 figures rather than the manual...

    I've done a 4.7 with a passenger measured with a vbox (s-tronic).

    Sorry I obviously didn't take enough notice of what you said. Unfortunately I've not seen any tests at all for an S3 s-tronic.
