Important stat for me is 0-30. I want to leave you behind at the lights. I think our car’s launch is amazing. Only very rarely get the smallest amount of wheel spin. It was a real stand out when I first got my car.

Can confirm - a couple of days ago an RS3 and a GT-R were, let’s just say, not being driven with fuel economy in mind, launching off the roundabouts and traffic lights around here.

I was returning from a Costco run fully loaded and had no problem keeping up with them, while making considerably less noise.

Waiting at a traffic light next to the S3 I noticed the driver trying to read the sticker.

In the Polestar I have no worries stepping up to ANY car at lights & giving the driver a 'wanna try it?' look.
I may have bitten off more than I could chew last week when I drew alongside a young girl in a cap driving a Lotus Exige Cup 430. We'll never find out- she wasn't interested. Probably used to dickheads like me.
But especially in the wet, when other cars struggle for grip, I give us every chance.
