    • Video of 741 horsepower Audi RS3 hitting 234 miles per hour - Legit?

      The video below of a 741 horsepower Audi RS3 in action shows absolutely bonkers acceleration all the way up to a very impressive 234 mile per hour top speed. That begs the question though of if the video is legitimate or staged. There are multiple camera angles showing the driver as well as the speedometer and tachometer but there is no external view. Due to the lack of a view showing the car actually doing the run some people are questioning the legitimacy.


      The AudiBoost take is that the video is legitimate as one can see the outside through the drivers side window. The scenery sure moves by in a hurry and it looks like this guy is doing this in freezing conditions as well (due to the snow shown as well as temperature readout) making for quite a ballsy run.

      Hopefully more media is posted about this car as it simply flies.

        ^^^^Yeah! What about the fact he's not even really holding the steering wheel. The mileage counter didn't seem to be moving fast enough when he was flying either. I'm calling BS!!!

        I don't know what to think but I have to lean toward BS with you guys. I don't know, just feels weird doesn't it?

        I feel you bro. His mileage starts at 11.5 and ends around 16. Going those speeds, I would want a long staight, but 4.5 miles long is hard to come by these days.

        22.16 in the tach probably refers to the clock time... look outside

        There is a lot of those kind of straights on the autobahn if you don't count the slight curves it has. Plus did you notice the camera moving slightly towards the back of the car, there has to be a kind of force to have that happen. I'm still kinda ify about but it is plausible

        I call complete BS. Have a look at his other videos, especially this one:

        You're right, it's BS. Guy just likes to do edited acceleration vids I guess.

        I can understand him liking to do it, but he should really mention that in his video descriptions, instead of trying to get people to believe his videos.

        omg ofc this is fake as hell .. the guy is just good at editing, he's "driving" 370+ km/h while holding the steering wheel as if he was drinking a beer while watching football wtf xD so fake..

        Also, I've done 347km/h in my Alpina B5S - german autobahn.. If it was as shaky in the GT-R video it would end up in the moon.



        Here we go like 330+ for over 1 minute, smooth as hell Click here to enlarge
