B3S Test on Auto,Motor and Sport

The first test of the B3S is in latest issue of Auto, Motor & Sport. Two pages, I'll scan them and post tonite.

BTW, 0-100 km/h acceleration is 0.5 secs quicker than the initial information I got from my dealer. It's 5.2 secs (6 speed manual, Limousine)

I can't wait for the scan!!!
I'm pretty sure that it won't have a test on french magazines, so I must read foreign tests.

18.2 sec to 200 ... is this possible?

The numbers on the car is ...

HP = 224KW (305PS) at 6300 RPM
TQ = 362Nm at 4800 RPM

???? Can the magazine be wrong?
