Great time for a car that hasn’t been stripped out unlike the other race tuned hatches…

Standard Dunlop’s. Interesting to see what it could do on PS Cups

But non of the other hatches can touch this monster in straight line acceleration. 380 ps from 2.0 liter - simply amazing.

The fuel economy, however, is less amazing, and what you would expect from nearly 400 ps car (12+ liters per 100 km)

Regarding the fuel economy: my average of driving the A45 for 1.5 years without any regard for fuel consumption was 10.1 l/100 km.
If I nursed it in Comfort mode below boost at high gear I could easily get 7.5 l / 100 km. I never saw below 7.0 as officially cited, though.

I wonder what kind of tires it was on. The other hatches that have been chasing records are on serious rubber
