If I remember right, high 1.5xxs. On grippy concrete. In the dry. Slower in wet.

The most impressive thing about the 3 is how it puts so much power down so effectively in all conditions. Itís not the power. Itís the brilliance in the traction control programming.

They don't do 1.3s. They do 1.7s pretty consistently, dipping into the 1.6s at events where they don't measure the 60' beams accurately.

The fastest AWD cars with engines run in the mid 1.5s.
