Default Audi S1 on its way, Audi RS1 probably not

Autoblog: http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/14/a...-probably-not/



Quote:
The Audiphiles at Fourtitude have spoken to one of their sources at Audi AG and apparently found out about future iterations of the A1. Seven months ago our spy photographers caught something that had us wondering about an S1, now Fourtitude reports that such a halo model is coming for the 2014 model year.

Not only is it coming, but it will reportedly be called the S1, which means it would partly share a moniker with that of the original World Rally Championship Sport Quattro S1 from 1984 (although S1 in that case meant "Series 1"; the "S" label wasn't used on production cars until 1990). It's thought that the S1 would appear when the facelifted A1 arrives, but what's under the hood is still a secret.

As for something above that, we're not sure anyone was really expecting an RS1, but some big-engined versions of the A1 like the A1 Quattro have been convincing arguments for more power in the little hatch. On top of that, an A1 decked out like an RS1 with the front scoops, wheels and a large rear wing was spotted by at least one spy photographer. Fourtitude's source puts that idea in Park, though, saying, "It is a very price sensitive market and (an RS 1) might get too expensive."

The upper portion reminds me of the Fiat 500.

I'd go with some sort of testing equipment.. possibly a ring of accelerometers to measure the shock/tire/tire pressure combo over various test surfaces.

-Completely talking out my ass here, though.

Those are wheel force sensors. The wheels look funky because there are load sensors between the hub and the actual wheel.

The Audi grille is too massive for such a small car. Looks like Dark Helmet from Spaceballs.

I rank this behind the Cooper and 500 in terms of attractiveness.

Maybe behind the cooper, but nothing is uglier than the 500
