Audi S1 Quattro Leaked Ahead of Official Debut
Photos of the Audi S1 quattro have leaked ahead of the vehicle’s official debut.
The aggressively designed hatchback features a sporty front bumper, mesh grille inserts and LED headlights with red accents. Further separating it apart from the standard A1, the S1 also has extended side skirts, unique wheels and a rear tailgate spoiler.
In addition, the S3’s mirrors are seen in a dark metallic finish while the sports car is expected to be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with around 230 hp mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
Expect more details tomorrow when the Audi S1 is officially unveiled ahead of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
