But no faster than yer Mercedes with normal tyres fitted a extra 20 NM of torque over the FL wouldnt make that much time difference...its called bending the truth a good bit real "slick" by Audi's PR groupPub bragging rights isn’t it.
It doesn’t really bother me one ioter but it’s good to know the car is rapid lol
Likewise, I’ve got a Golf R at present, but touchscreen and software issues associated with it make me feel RS3 could be the one for me (yes I know there are still issues with A3 software, but you get buttons for climate control)Dont forget that a £20K cheaper Golf 8R did it in 7.51
After a few other cars (inc current Golf 7.5R) i'm looking for a new car, VW is having all kinds of software issues with latest 8R so i'm waiting to see how Audi do the 'packages' in the UK, looking at the de site it's not looking good, If you want the DCC it's part of a 7500 euro package inc cermaic discs etc
(not that I would spec said tyres)
Not holding it against Audi. Just pointing out that it’s not comparing apples with apples when some semi slick racing tyres are being used.Audi owners on an audi forum slate audi for promoting the latest audi - lol
If the car can be purchased with said semi slick tyres how can this be held against it?
**** this am aff te the Ring with a set of Trofeo R's.....lol
The Trofeo R tyres aint even manufactured in the standard 8Y RS3 siz...... edit yes they are around £400 a cornerI searched to see if any more comments on the Trofeo tyres
I assume, as the spec is limited, though a massive claim by audi to be fastest in it's class - I guess they either used super fine print somewhere that said "Except if you buy the car in the UK" or just said sod it, these are not available to UK customers unless they buy them 3rd party elsewhere, because I couldn't find anything about choosing this tyre. Not on any spec level.
exactly and some strip out the car, like Honda did with the Civic type r...it had no MMI, etc which saved 40kg....and i wonder what else they didnt tell us about
Yup there’s a limited edition Type R just been released with no radio etc to save weight.
