Audi A1 gets "S" treatment

Audi has listed the S1 as one of the cars it will reveal at this month's Paris Motor Show.

While Ingolstadt has not yet confirmed any technical details on the hottest version of the A1 premium supermini, sources state that it will be powered by the same 1.4-liter TSI twincharged engine found under the hood of the Polo GTi. It is possible that Audi may tweak the four-cylinder unit to produce a few ponies than the 180HP it returns on the VW model.

The S1 will also get the usual performance parts such as taller and wider tires, upgraded suspension and brake system as well as a styling package similar to the S-Line trim.

The new hot hatch from Audi should go on sale in Europe sometime next year. For Singapore, the non-“S” version should make its debut in Q1 2011.

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.
