As the Audi S1 that we had hoped to see at the 2010 Paris Motor Show became the A1 1.
4 TFSI, it has served only to increase speculation of when we will see the S1 appear.
And more to the point, just how much horse power it might have.
AutoBild has revealed that according to them the S1 will have 220 hp and an all-wheel-drive system, but other, more elaborate news is coming from elsewhere.
Other reports from the Netherlands have the Audi S1 at anything up to 270 hp.
This calculation comes from the knowledge that the 1.
4-litre TFSI with no Audi Quattro technology is not quite what one would expect of an Audi ‘S’ model.
In addition, the RS1 project uses a 2.
0-litre TFSI with 270 hp, but the thinking is that it has been cancelled and the S1 will take its place.
For the moment, we’re happy to check out the A1 1.
4-litre model at Paris as we wait for more news.
