Audi Trademarks the Potential Audi RS1

Posted on by

Though it looks like a 3-D representation of the sold-out A1 Quattro , rumor has it that this hot-looking hatchback will be called the Audi RS1 .

With an aggressive looking body kit and a powerful turbocharged engine, this car definitely ticks the boxes for slapping an RS badge. We think…

The Audi A1 Quattro was powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that developed 256 horsepower. This engine is in the cards for this RS1, but rumor has it that engineers are also considering a de-tuned version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine from the TT-RS . Rest assured, both engines will bring plenty of driving pleasure, so we don’t mind which engine powers this mini beast.

If produced, the Audi RS1 will enter the competitive segment of mini hot hatches that include the likes of Fiat 500 Abarth , MINI Cooper JCW and the newly announced Fiesta ST .

That all the speculation we have in store for now, but we’ll get you more information ASAP.
