Out at the annual Nardo Highspeed Test, many machines like 9FF’s Porsche 911 GT3 or G-Power’s BMW M3 came to show off their top speed. German VW/Audi tuner MTM was also on hand, with a shockingly fast car. No, it wasn’t an RS5 or some other brutish monter, but the cute and trendy Audi A1. Motivated by a 500-hp engine the little rocket hit an incredible top speed of 201-mph.

Available to consumers as the A1 Nardo Edition, the car also comes with an aesthetics package, spicing up the A1’s already good looks with a set of 18-inch MTM bimoto wheels, upgraded brakes and lowered suspension.
