The ultimate Audi A1

If you think that the 185bhp twincharged Audi A1 is the fastest production version, you have not heard of the A1 Quattro. As its name would imply, the A1 Quattro comes equipped with the automaker's legendary all-wheel-drive system. The A1 Quattro will be a limited production model which will only find 333 owners.

The latest A1 is powered by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged direct-injected four cylinder power plant used in the S3. It puts out 252bhp at 6000 rpm and 258lb-ft of torque from 2500 to 4500 rpm. Audi claims that AWD A1 will match the S3ís 0-60 mph sprint time of 5.7 Secs with a top speed of 152 mph. The power is transferred to the four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

In terms of safety, the A1 wears grippy 225/35 R18 tires with larger discs at all the four corners. The ESP has been modified for high-performance duty and a new electronically controlled differential lock will keep wheelspin at bay. The A1 is fitted with a modified MacPherson strut suspension at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. Due to the AWD setup, the truck space has shrunk by 2.1 cubic feet as compared to the standard model.

The interior differentiates itself from the regular A1 with a new instrument panel, aluminum pedals, heavily bolstered buckets and black leather with red stitching.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
