Audi S1 canned, as suspected S badge removed due to lack of Quattro

8 posts in this topic

When I took on the role for the TT Owners Club liasing with Audi, I saw stories like this from the other side. It bugs the sh1t out of me that quotes such as "Audi has back-tracked on plans to call the hottest version of its new A1 the S1" normally actually mean "we got it wrong but won't admit it".

Car mags are so full of sh1t.

I concur. Audi are just releasing the 185hp A1 in Paris, they will see how that sells then bring out an S1 at a later date to increase sales - just like they do in every model range.

AUDI S1 ON ITS WAY - WITH QUATTRO 4x4 platform-share plan to deliver hot Audi and VW Polo R

Not being funny, but why the hell would they bring out a 4WD A1 or Polo?

And this is utter shite as well:

VW is understood to have taken development of the Polo R to an advanced stage, but, like Audi with the S1, made the decision against putting into production due to the issue over all-wheel drive.

Erm, Scirocco R...
