New Audi S3 v Old Audi RS3 - DRAG RACE

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Thanks to Saving Salvage for bringing their RS3 -

It's time for an Audi hot hatch drag race! We've got the new Audi S3 going up against the old Audi RS3!

When you look at the stats on paper, these two mini maestros seem pretty evenly matched! Starting with the new Audi S3, it comes with a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which can deliver 310hp and 400Nm of torque. It's also packing Quattro all-wheel-drive, and it weighs in at 1,575kg.

The old RS3 we've brought in is a 2012 model, and under the bonnet you'll find a 2.5-litre turbocharged 5 cylinder engine which can put down 340hp and 450Nm. As for the weight... It's exactly the same, coming in at 1,575kg!

So what do you think, does the old RS3 still have what it takes? Or will the all-new S3 have enough to bring down its older brother? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    Didn't expected that for sure, but with the new OPF standards, most likely it needs more power to get the same results.

    Buying new cars is bullshit. 2015-2019 models are as “fun” as cars are ever going to be. Everything after that is just worse from a pure driving point of view. Going for a nice petrol engine car and keep it 10 years at least is the strategy. Hoping that until then hydrogen engines will be available!

    If you put the Audi S cars in manual mode while launching you'll get better results than in automatic mode. Tested this with a few cars and they change gears a little bit later than in automatic mode...but both are "automatic" as the car will change up by itself also in manual mode.
