A1 Quattro or RS1?

Several mysterious images of an Audi A1 taken from the European trademark office database have surfaced as the Audi RS1 according to JokeForBlog.

Upon initial inspection, the car appears to be an A1 Quattro but it features a monotone appearance and RS style five-spoke alloy wheels. This could imply photos are slightly misleading or the car is a completely different model - possibly the RS1.

We're still on the fence, but the hatchback has an aggressive body kit with new bumpers, revised side skirts and a prominent rear wing.

The A1 Quattro was powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that developed 256 HP (188 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The RS1, on the other hand, is expected use a detuned version of the TT-RS' 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

The truck grill front is ugly, this is just a polo for badge whores. Other manufactures offer much better driving cars for the price, which is exposing the A1 and overpriced car with poor driving dynamics.

A1 is already not a good looking car, and this TTRS front bumper makes it even worse if it comes with this design!

While the 5cyl has a much better engine note, it will be quite heavy for a car of this size.

Screw a detuned 2.5l, throw in the S3's 2.0l four pot; one less cylinder and probably the same power expected from the detuned 2.5
