While the TT ultra quattro concept will no doubt be the star at Audi’s stand at the 2013 Wörthersee meeting, the company is also coming with a few other models that also made quite a sensation.

One of them is the Audi A1 updated with a competition kit inspired by the look of the successful Audi R18 e-tron quattro racecar. Of course, do not expect the A1 to look as extreme as the R18, but still, its look has been reinterpreted for the Audi A1, and the competition kit R18 can be ordered in either gray or red.

The new competition kit includes red plus (or optional gray) decals for the body, new front lip and side skirts, a stylish roof spoiler at the rear and a silver sticker. The car sits on special wheels, while the center console also received a matching color trim.
