From there, the tests moved to unlimited sections of the German Autobahn for rolling runs from 100 km / h to 200 km / h. There was no official automaker benchmark for comparison, but after a few test sprints the S3 returned a time of 11.8 seconds. The video indicates that it was a bit faster than the previous generation VW Golf R that they tested, despite having a small power advantage. The driver couldn’t resist the pursuit of traction to graze the S3’s factory limited top speed of 250 km / h, and with the speedo still climbing enthusiastically at this point, we believe that ‘ it could go a little higher with the limiter removed.
While the S3 sedan won’t arrive on American shores, there is good news for Americans looking for a new S3 experience. Audi recently confirmed that the S3 sedan will enter the market as a 2022 model. It packs the same powertrain and grip as the Sportback, but unfortunately there will be a wait before the car arrives. As a 2022 model, it is expected to reach dealerships by the end of 2021.
