New Audi S1 and S1 Sportback Photos

Audi S1 and S1 Sportback are finally revealed to public. It is the lunatic version of the tiny Audi, A1. I want to start from the most fundamental improvement, the rear suspension. Audi A1 features an old school, torsion beam suspension to reduce cost, save space and weight. However, Audi S1 is aimed for ultimate handling and experience, Audi features a four-link suspension for the rear wheels. This means, way better handling and comfort. 
Audi S1 is powered by a 2-lt TFSI with 231 HP and 370 NM of torque. S1 is coupled with unfortunate six-speed manual but you can order with state-of-art 7-speed S-Tronic double clutch gearbox with all-wheel drive Quattro. And go for the automatic, manual is out-dated technology. S1 needs only 5.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the top speed is 250 km/h.
Worth to buy? Definitely Yes! Audi S1 is a new taste and experience. If you are bored with Mini Cooper S, Audi S1 is the best choice.

Audi RS5 Cabriolet from Audi London

Audi RS5 convertible or cabriolet, whichever you call it. I saw Audi RS5 at Audi’s techno showroom in London. You might be saying that, RS5 is at the end of its product life cycle, nothing looks really special and I would agree on that if this post was for A5.
However, this is RS5 and this means one thing, it has a lunatic engine! It is one of the most powerful convertible cars on market with Audi precision interior with the same stiffness at each button and seamless gap between the parts. And also, the interior of the Audi RS5 does not look that out-dated like its interior.
The main thing I liked with the Audi RS5 is the combination of the performance embedded with the invisibility. Unlike BMW M3 or Mercedes C63 AMG, no one will realise the RS5 and you won’t be noticed on everywhere. And I can imagine that, the steering wheel is not well connected like BMW and has the tendency to understeer but still a very good car.
Audi RS5 cabriolet is powered by a 4.2-lt V8 FSI engine with 450 HP and 430 Nm of torque. RS5 only needs 4.9 seconds to 100 km/h and limited to 250 km/h top speed.


Audi S6 Avant from London

Audi S6 Avant. Avant means estate and estate means boring, thus Audi S6 is boring according to this assumption. But this is a theoretical assumption that does not represent the real world condition. Audi S6 Avant is not boring and it is an estate. This is a real contradiction when we talk about the super fast cars and their boot capacity.

Last week, I had chance to see the Audi S6 Avant at Audi’s newest London dealer. S6 Avant does not look boring or designed only for families. It does have a different type of charm despite its enormous boots space. If I had chance, I would definitely bought this S6 Avant right away.

The dynamic design of the Audi S6 hinders the dullness of the estate car. And you just ignore that ugly huge boot space. Also the interior quality of the S6 is class leading. Thanks to know-how transfer from Bentley for craftsmanship, Audi S6 offers the most precise interior on its segment. The materials, the stiffness of the knobs while turning and the sounds of the button clicks are the signals of the quality. These things do not change your driving experience but improves your experience inside the vehicle and represent the production quality.

Also, I cannot ignore the Google Maps navigation! It is Google Maps, we all know that it is the best navigation software on the market. And also the user interface is very easy to use and you don’t get lost. However, the pixel density of the navigation screen is not close enough to Apple’s Retina Display technology. I hope they will improve this.

Audi S6 Avant is powered by 4-lt TFSI petrol engine with 420 HP and 550 Nm of torque. Engine is coupled with 7-speed S-Tronic automatic gearbox. S6 Avant only needs 4.7 seconds to reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 250 km/h.
