Recreation of the Audi RS1 by RM Design
The Audi RS1 is a vehicle that has always been in the minds of many fans. Since we tested the sporty Audi S1 we wonder if the brand of the four rings would dare to do something more radical. The answer seems to be Yes, since some sources are running that the small sports will be the coming year. The date chosen would be the month of March, as it would be presented at the Salon de Geneva 2017.
Have past already three years since Audi excluded the RS1, but this time seems to have them made change of opinion. The truth is that in today’s market increasingly see more sporting versions of these utilities and thus would have been hollow for this model. It could be based directly on the Audi A1 Quattro, that limited-edition made it clear the potential of the small range could be achieved.

But still there is nothing confirmed, Audi RS1 may be surprised by your engine. Would take borrowed the mechanical of his brother greater, the Audi S3 or of the Audi TTS Roadster that test makes little. In this way would mount the 2.0 TFSI with 310 HP power. A number of really impressive bearing in mind that the current S1 is in 231 HP. Not missing the quattro all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox.
With these data, the Audi RS1 is postulated as a vehicle of reduced dimensions but with a chilling power. You will have to see it, but it would result in a model capable of beating with larger opponents. It is not surprising that you got an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds. The price will also be quite high, they are spoken about 42,000 euros starting, about 6,000 euros more than the current S1.
