    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.

    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.
