Cold Air – Does it make your car faster? If so, by how much?

From this video

 

Colder air makes a massive difference to acceleration times. If you are a bracket racer, you know this, for the layman like me, I knew there was a difference, but not how much.

Turn outs a 10C drop in temperature makes the car accelerate 7% faster!

From 115km/h to 140km/h the car accelerated 0.3 seconds/7% faster when the temperature was 9.4 Celcius colder.
