Since many of you have asked me to also do a launch control acceleration test with the all new 2015 Audi S3 Limousine I went ahead and tested it on an evening Autobahn trip. While the car takes around 5.1 sec. to reach 100 without LC this time I managed to get clearly below five seconds. You will also realize that once you have entered the “handling” mode with ESC in Sport that gear shifts of that S-Tronic transmission will be “smoother” since the torque is not reduced during the gear shift to retain max. performance. Surprisingly the 0-200 is not really faster than in a previous test without LC but this must be to different circumstances. Nevertheless this 2.0 TFSI really pulls away like something else giving the impression its more in the 320-330 hp range.
