Look at the 'company it's keeping' though - not disgraced when you look at the times from the hatch drag race (the R ST would have won that race)

I think I have the most up to date info but it's possible it's wrong haha

I guess in real life it's 30 - 70mph which you need torque for... But can you use it on UK roads probably not lol

So the Cupra is the cheapest, 2nd biggest boot, joint lightest, 2nd quickest 0-60, most economical, cheapest to run, cheapest to lease...

Something tells me a drag race all be it he got a rubbish start in the Cupra, he did awesome once he got off then the torque kicked in on the other 2...

One thinks that with the change from buying it over the RS3 you could get a proper map and you'd be well up there then. the ABT map will be about as safe as it can get lol

I know which i'd buy... I'm not a fan of Audi's these days and that G wagon is not even on a wish list lol

Prices are without any extras so for the RS3 they mention you have to get the magnetic suspension or something which pushes it nearer to the 52k mark I think... I imagine the same for the Merc...

Would a stage 2 R-Tech MK3 Leon 280 (2014) beat both of them from the rolling road race... I don't know...

Audi RS3
Price - £45k
0-60 - 4.1 sec
Torque - 480nm
BHP - 400
Engine - 2.5L T
Weight - 1.5T

AMG G63
Price - £48k
0-60 - 5.2 sec
Engine - 5.4L V8
BHP - 563
Torque - 760nm

Cupra
Price - £38k
0-60 - 4.7 sec
Engine - 2.0 T
BHP - 350
Torque - 295nm

It's early so I cannot be held responsible for anything above... blame past me...

The G63 is the new one with the 4.0L V8 - nearer to £148k on the road and 0-62 of 4.5secs

and the R ST was last off the line - launch control or driver, who knows?

I'm pretty impressed anyway

Think the Seat held its own.
Half a second in it,
against huge torque figures of the others.
And let’s face it. If you’re a “Traffic Light Gran Prix Boy”
It’s all down to reactions.
Also you’re going to break your car driving like that, as a friend of mine is finding out.
Probably loose your licence too.
