A couple of weeks ago, we caught sight of a nice upgrade Pogea Racing did for the Audi A7 Sportback, which they so affectionately dubbed, ’Seven Sins’. Well from the looks of things, it’s beginning to look like Pogea Racing is trying to run through the whole gamut of Audi models after the tuning firm launched a separate upgrade program for the Audi A1. The name for this program? The ’A Force One’. Catchy.

Aesthetic and aerodynamic upgrades done on the A1 were left at the minimum with Pogea opting to add few items, including a set of ultralight OZ Racing Alleggerita HTL alloy wheels that are wrapped in ET35 Sport Contact 3 Continental tires. Apart from that, Pogea also added a new exhaust system that comes with some fancy 76mm laser engraved tailpipes.

In terms of performance, this is where the tuning company did the brunt of their work. Pogea Racing’s tuning program for the Audi A1 comes in two stages with the first stage increasing the car’s output from the stock 122 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque to an angrier 156 horsepower and 266 Nm of torque. The first stage engine upgrade also bumps the top speed to 152 mph. Meanwhile, the Stage 2 upgrade doesn’t get get any performance enhancements. Instead, Pogew Racing adds additional air cooling and adapted electronics, together with a new coil-over suspension from KW and a set of Brembo brakes with perforated discs.

All told, the ’A Force One’ upgrade on the A1 looks refreshingly off-the-chains. Extra props for the sick rims, too.

I think they should use a more appropriate body paint for this Audi A1. Well, I just find out that it didn’t really look great neither good with its current color. I’m also too disappointed on its engine output.

At least they provide adds-on. Some other cars out there are just changing the appearance of the car, but it is still the same car. For me, it is a good idea for Audi, since we all know that A1 was already good in terms of performance.

So does it mean that they haven’t made any modification in the engine of the car but rather putting add ons such as air cooling and new suspension for this car. Totally useless!

hmm. 34 hp boost power on this car is not that impressive. Although compact cars are fuel efficient. I will less to consider this car for I think its there are a lot of better option in the market.

Well, I am not really into the looks for this one, as I am more interested in the car’s power. And the number are very good as far as I am concerned.

Looks a bit too plain to me. But then again I am not complaining. The way they worked on the engine is certainly more than enough to satisfy my taste.

Agreed with you on that one. If you look at it, this car is actually rather simple in styling, but the all black ensemble really makes it stand out. And of course, there’s the powerful engine.

There is really something with all black that makes it look cool, whatever car you put it on. And with this being an Audi A1, it really made it look even cooler.
