Beyond the go, with 18-inch turbine design wheels, huge 12.28-inch disc brakes, tinted rear windows, Quattro badges are everywhere.

There’s also LED ambient lighting, rain-sensing wipers, a Bose 14-speaker sound system, automatic climate control, CD changer, MMI navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity are all included.
Power for the Audi A1 Quattro comes from a 2.0 TFSI 4-cylinder direct-injected gasoline engine making 256-hp at 6,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 258 lb-ft between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm. Audi gives a 0 to 62mph (100km/h) sprint time of 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 152mph (245km/h), along with a combined fuel economy of 33.2mpg UK (equal to 8.5 lt/100km or 27.7 US mpg).
Pricing has been set at £41,020 (equal to US$64,600 or €49,500), which makes it £1,000+ more expensive than 340PS (335bhp) RS3 Sportback. Order books officially open in March and deliveries begin in the second half of 2012, stay tuned at Auto Reviews to get the latest update.
