2011 Audi S1: first details revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

A 2011 model Audi A1 compact hatchback will be introduced to the market next year and it won't be as affordable as either the Toyota iQ or the Vw Up! but it will be a high rated vehicle created to compete with the likes of the Mini Cooper and it will also have its own S1 sports version. The S1 will arrive several months subsequent to the introduction of the A1.

Leading the A1 series will be the Audi S1 which is equipped with 200 hp (147kW) and quattro all-wheel-drive. The S1 will be propelled by a 1.4-liter TFSI supercharged and turbocharged powerplant with a maximum torque of 221lb-ft (200 Nm) that comes with a 7-speed S-tronic double-clutch gear.

The S1 can accelerate from standstill to 60mph in under six seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph.

Special features of the S1 consist of the following: stiffened suspension configured with magnetic dampers, a front to rear torque distribution of 40:60, a gearbox that can be programmed for various drive choices such as for comfort or competition.

Distinction from the A1 is achieved by flared wheel curves courtesy of its athletic bodykit, 19 inches alloy rims, a spoiler mounted on the roof, and chrome accents.

A steering wheel with a flat bottom, pedals made of aluminum, and athletic bucket seats round out the inside characteristics.
