With the new Audi makes serious and shows how sports can be a small car Audi A1 Quattro is the Ingolstadt set a new benchmark for this vehicle class where large numbers of small are with the big heart but not built. It is a strictly limited 333 copies limited edition model , which is also related to the anticipated purchase price.


But first on technique: In the short hood of the A1 Quattro operates a strongly pumped up 2.0 TFSI, which sends whopping 256 horsepower to all four wheels. The maximum torque of 350 Newton meters at 2500-4500 rpm and sufficient to the most powerful series-A1 in 5.7 seconds at highway speed and to get to 245 km / h – as does a Mini John Cooper Works with 211 hp and Front-wheel drive only the rear lights hurry away.

Is the power-A1 only with manual transmission and permanent all-wheel drive Quattro, which provides electronically controlled and hydraulically actuated through multi-plate clutch for maximum traction. Normally, a large part of the engine power will land on the front wheels, with decreasing traction on this axis, the force can be managed smoothly and within a few milliseconds to the rear wheels.

The chassis of the Audi A1 Quattro is much tighter than in the weaker models tuned. The special model is available to 18-inch light alloy wheels in an exclusive turbine design that already from the Wörthersee study A1 Clubsport Quattro is known. All around, mounted 225 mm wide tires to transfer all forces. Also, the brake has been adjusted to the new conditions, to take the front black brake calipers with discs 312 millimeters diameter in the chuck.

Also from the study Clubsport Quattro with 503 horsepower of the A1 inherits the only color combination for election: The roof dome is painted glossy black, the rest of the car shines in Glacier White. Even the huge air intakes in the front skirt, red “Wings” in the spotlight, partly black painted tailgate and the large rear wing reminiscent of the study.

Inside, the special model scores points with complete amenities and many sporting full details. Sports seats with pronounced cheeks and red stitching, which give the flat-bottomed sports steering wheel, tachometer red-colored and the white pointer sports car-like atmosphere. Unfortunately, this is likely to continue within the price, because this will be in the range of 45,000 € and should provide another new benchmark for sporty small car.
