Audi S1 from London Mayfair Digital Showroom

Today I continue with Audi family, S1, I was really curious to see this tiny car. And hopefully, I managed to spot one at Audi’s Digital Showroom at Mayfair, London. Audi S1 is a really tiny and charming car. It is powered by a 2-lt TFSI 230 HP and 370 nm of torque.

The exciting part is the Quattro all-wheel drive system! And unfortunately, it is coupled with a six-speed manual. It should have been a S-Tronic double clutch! However, the rear suspension is a proper multi-link suspension and provide better grip.

I really like the Audi S1 despite the pre-histroic manual transmission. I guess, if you are looking for a small, fast and invisible car the S1 will be the perfect choice. It really well built inside as well. And it does not show off like its competitors.

Actually, I really like the S1 and three-door version looks cool as well!


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.
