    Just received my new issue of EVO this morning and there's a tuned hot hatch section on page 77 to 81.

    There is:

    Focus ST - 327 bhp
    Golf GTi - 407 bhp
    Astra VXR - 420bhp
    S3 - 400bhp

    Some of you may find it interesting as it compares performance figures with acceleration times and in gear times.

    That'll be Veilside tunings car - it's a similar spec as JonnyC's old S3 ;)

    Cool.
    This the stuff we want to know about.
    Not what the new 4 seater Maserati feels like on a track, in some exotic location....."

    420bhp VXR! Can Burberry Caps go that fast?:)

    Yeah - thought I'd guess he didn't have it on for these tests..... I may be wrong though

    The S3, VXR and GTi are joint efforts by Regal Autosport, Veil Tuning and Autograph Cars. The ST is by Morego http://www.morego.co.uk/product_details.php?id=8041.

    The ST has some pretty impressive in gear times despite it being the 'lowest' powered there.

    The article also says the nitrous wasn't connected for the tests.
