2012 Audi RS1

If you were waiting for a confirmation that Audi was indeed preparing an RS version for their latest A1 small hatchback, well here it is. The RS1 has been caught testing, not just once, but two times. The first session was during testing at the Nurburgring and the second was while it was cruising around on some of Germany’s streets. The RS1 may as well get used to the streets of Europe because, as of right now, there’s no chance it will see American soil.

Like with all the other RS models in Audi’s line-up, the new RS1 will feature a specially designed front bumper, a new rear wing, and wider side sills, as well as two fat exhaust pipes, one on each side. As for the hatchback’s engine, it is rumored that Audi will be using a turbo charged four-cylinder delivering some 250 HP, and not the same 340 HP turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine found in other hot models such as the TT RS and RS3 as we had hoped. This engine will be combined with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive.

The new Audi RS1 will make its official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next March.

Well, they should truly need to boost the engine of this RS1, and I think it will be more impressive if they add some design on its exterior.

I am hoping also that it could offer a great and comfortable interior! Furthermore, as for the engine of it, I must say that it doesn’t really matter if it can’t deliver such a powerful speed for the fact that it is not a sports car.

250 hp is definitely not good enough for this SUV! Well, they should truly need to boost the engine of this RS1, and I think it will be more impressive if they add some design on its exterior.

Yeah! It doesn’t really need to have a powerful engine just like what a sports car had. Anyway, RS1 still looks attractive on its aesthetic design, but I hope that they also include some pictures of its interior.

250 horsepower is quite good enough for it because of the fact that it is not a sports car, so it really doesn’t need to have such a powerful engine output. I just only hope that it could have a nice interior.

I have to agree with you JaysonIdler but despite the fact that Volkswagen is looking more attractive than with this Audi, I still noticed that RS1 is oozing with car appeal, which is great on it.

I don’t think that it looks like a Volkswagen vehicle. Well, for me, Volkswagen is more looks so elegant on their design than on this Audi. Anyway, I hope that they would use already an impressive engine on this RS1.

It is an Audi car and not a Volkswagen vehicle! However, I can’t really blame you guys, if you thought that it is from Volkswagen for it truly looks closer to their vehicle.

Just like what they are hoping, I am hoping also that it could offer a great and comfortable interior! Furthermore, as for the engine of it, I must say that it doesn’t really matter if it can’t deliver such a powerful speed for the fact that it is not a sports car.

I wonder if what will be the interior of this RS1 will look like? Well, I hope that it is impressive as well as on its cool exterior appearance. Anyway, I’m glad that it had a nice engine specification.

It looks so cool on its sleek black body paint, and I love the side rim of it, looks very perfect! smiley Well, I hope that the rumored is absolutely true that they will use a turbo charged engine for it.

In spite of having only a simple design and detailing, I can say that I would still prefer to have this car, for it is so practical to use in an everyday transportation and very reliable on the road.

I can say that, in spite of having only a simple platform and styling, it is still very striking and awesome on its looks, but I hope they also include some pictures of its interior.

Even though the appearance of this Audi RS1 is not really so striking, I still can say that I love the fact that it is very ideal on the road and mere practical to use in my everyday transportation.

This hatchback of Audi was already looking good on its sleek body paint, and it gives the sophisticated and classy appearance on it, but I’m quite wondering on what will be the interior of this one will look like.

Closer to Volkswagen cars, this hatchback car will surely be a hot model in the market. I hope the engines will be really combined with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive.

I noticed that the platform of this Audi RS1 was very common nowadays, but even though it only looks so ordinary I must say that I still find it very appealing and so classy on its sleek body paint.

I’m sure this is Volkswagen car. smiley Voklswagen car is really great style of the car and I think this style is oldest style of all car. But, this is one of the best in the market.
