    Cool A1 Quattro 2.0T 252PS Limited Edition

    Source: Autocar

    Audi is poised to take the supermini class by storm with a limited-production, 252bhp, four-wheel-drive A1.
    The A1 quattro not only aims to land a knockout blow on the likes of the Renault Clio Cup and Ford Fiesta ST, but it will also eclipse hot hatches such as the Renault Mégane 250 and Ford Focus ST. It will even have the straight-line performance to match Audi’s own S3.



    Audi has no plans to produce any of the initial 333 A1 quattros in right-hand drive, but insiders have hinted that this decision is fluid and could change, given the A1’s popularity in the UK. Audi UK will decide next month whether to import left-hand-drive examples of the car.



    Power comes from the same turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine used in the S3. Shoehorned transversely into the engine bay, it produces 252bhp at 6000rpm and 258lb ft from 2500-4500rpm.
    The heady reserves are channelled through a six-speed manual gearbox and a Haldex-style four-wheel drive system that Audi has engineered for the A1’s PQ25 platform.



    Audi has yet to divulge a weight figure but claims the A1 quattro matches the S3 in the 0-62mph sprint with a time of 5.7sec and can reach a top speed of 152mph, making it some 1.2sec and 11mph faster than the front-wheel-drive A1 1.4 TFSI. Combined economy is provisionally rated at 33.2mpg.

    The latest reports suggest the A1 quattro will cost around £40,000 and will be available from the middle of 2012. The S1, with around 220bhp, will follow in the middle of 2013

    I saw number 1 of 333 on Wednesday 12.9.12 at Boston Audi!

    Very nice but as it was priced £41,020 I will have to give it a miss!

    Oh, btw it was left hand drive, as all 333 cars are!

    I understand that only 19 are coming to the UK.

    There is one at Newbury Audi for the same money. They've had a few interested punters but LHD has been putting them off. I took some pics of it, I'll put them up tomorrow.

    There's probably some sort of plaque on the dash representing the build number

    So this is a little cheat by the dealer. The 'owner' was actually from Audi UK who would have placed this on the internal auction website and then the dealer in question will now have it up for sale.

    Why? Well because I sat in this very car at the moving motorshow this year on the day before Goodwood runs, where Audi have a utterly massive stand as part of Goodwood and the motorshow...

    And? Well my current A1 was sourced from an Audi dealer through the same method, except mine was used in their dealer training centre so had been out on a few simulated 'test drives'. I personally think the granny drove it (the instructor) as it was stupidly stiff at (a-hem) over 70 (officer) with over 4 K on the clock after 4 months. I can happily report it's not as stiff these days!

    BTW those super sports seats were awesome to sit in...

    There all number 1, unlike the R8 GT which is number 1 OF 333 the A1's are just 1 of 333 (not actually number 1)

    Bit naughty on Audi's part really, to miss leading
