We were lucky enough to have a play on a little airfield which allowed us to have a drag race between the Audi S3 and Subaru Impreza WRX. The 2010 Audi S3 is completely standard while the Subaru Impreza WRX has the PPP ECU which puts both cars at approximately 265bhp.
The Audi S3 was using the standard launch control that comes with the s-tronic gearbox which gave a slight advantage from the line. This was countered by a slight jump start from the Subaru Impreza WRX on the first attempt but the Audi S3 still managed to claim the ground back.
Nothing beats being able to take a car for a free run down a runway and both cars were great fun to drive. I was very impressed with the Audi S3 launch control in it’s standard form and look forward to a few modifications in the new year.
We didn’t perform any timing on these runs but the Audi S3 0-60 time with the launch control did seem to just pip the Subaru Impreza WRX 0-60 time.
