THIS is why I love Audi—–because (A) they are insane, and (B) their attention to detail. This is a 503hp (!!!!) concept version of their A1 named Clubsport quattro. The engine? Probably the best production engine on the market right now, the 2.5L 5 Cylinder turbo from the TT-RS. Production? NOT likely! That being said, i’m pretty sure we are going to see a rock solid S1 (or maybe with a different name, as crossover with the original ‘S1″ may not work out). RS1? I am not so sure. But the final result is me feeling VERY dissappointed that we will never get the A1 in this country. 503hp…..holy wow.
