Audi RS1 will go to work

Audi will unveil RS1 version for its smallest hatchback as a competitor for the MINI Cooper, and the audi RS1 will be unveiled in 2012.

We can expect the new car to come in a two-door variant at first, with exterior features such as redesigned body kit, new exhaust tips and big wheels. Just like the other hot Audis, the RS1 will have a wide body kit and will feature small changes to the grill or mirrors. The 17-inch wheels, LED day lights and black headliner from the S-line A1 will most likely find their way into the RS1.

The Audi RS1 will lose the front-wheel-drive system of the Audi  A1 in favor of the company’s quattro all-wheel-drive system. This of course will add to the total weight of the Audi RS1, but don’t worry, it will have enough power to mach the extra kg.

The Audi RS1 model will likely feature  a 1.4TFSI with 186 HP and S tronic, the future RS1 will be powered by a new 1.6 TFSI engine that will deliver no less than 245 HP. The engine tuned to around 220 PS (162 kW) – in order to outdo the 211 PS (155 kW) of the Mini Cooper JCW which Audi sees as the RS1’s main competitor. If we compare it to the GTI, the RS1 might get from 0 to 100 km/h in around 6 seconds and up to a top speed of 250 km/h.
