The Audi A1 is set to get a proper performance version with the introduction of the Audi RS1, pictured here testing at the Nurburgring.
Little is known about the light hot hatch but going by the size of the rear wing, it looks like it’s designed to go pretty fast.
The RS1 prototype’s front bumper has the typical RS design while wider side sills in addition to the two fat exhaust pipes hint at what may be under the bonnet.
We suspect that power will come from a turbocharged four-cylinder delivering about 180kW and that it will be distributed to all four wheels via Audi’s quattro system.
Audi is set to expand its RS5 lineup in the near future with an RS7, RS5 Cabrio and now the RS1.
