Audi A1 Quattro


A high-performance version of the German Automaker’s subcompact hatch, the Limited Edition 252-hp A1 Quattro was announced by Audi to be introduced quite soon.


“the A1 Quattro comes equipped with the automaker’s legendary all-wheel-drive system, with power provided by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder used in the S3. The reworked mill puts out 252 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm – a boost of more than 70 hp and 74 lb-ft over the standard 1.4-liter A1.”


As far as the wheel wells are regarded, they are filled with a modified MacPherson strut suspension in the front and at the rear, a multi-link setup. Improvements have been brought to the braking system with larger discs at all four corners with black painted calipers. A 14.8:1 ratio seems to characterise the electromechanical steering and the ESP has been modified for high-performance duty.


The S and RS lines are the models that were used as inspiration for this Audi model’s interior.


The A1 is expected to go on sale next year with only 333 units available.
