2011 Audi S1 Preview

Sorry, no pics yet!  Just some rumored specs.  If you were hoping for a micro Audi with quattro AWD, it looks like you’ll be disappointed.  The 2011 S1 will be FWD only, just like Polo GTI that it’s based on.  Under the hood will be a turbocharged 1.4 liter direct injection 4 banger, good for 180 HP and 184 lb-ft of torque.

That’s a very healthy amount of power for such a small vehicle.  Remember, the S1 will be competing with the Mini Cooper S – the most famous micro car on the road.

Pricing is unknown yet.  Surely it won’t be cheap, as it’s wearing the 4 rings of Audi… but at the same time it can’t be too pricey, given it’s size, and target market.
