Audi has officially pulled the wraps off the brand new S1 and S1 Sportback, ahead of the models’ official debut scheduled for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, next month.
The Audi S1 and S1 Sportback have been already spied these past few weeks and after learning some pretty interesting things about them, time has come to officially meet them, for the very first time. The top of the line versions of the Audi A1 are available in three- and five-door body style versions and they have been fitted with a more aggressive body kit, which is highlighted by the new front and rear bumpers, by the updated side sills, by the rear wing and the quad exhaust system.
Audi says that both vehicles are riding on 17-inch alloy wheels, which have been wrapped in 215/40 tires but, as an option, larger 18-inch rims, with 225/35 tires, can also be ordered. The wheels will be covering the 310 mm front disc brakes, with their red calipers and with the S1 logo on them. The two models are also getting the xenon plus headlights and the LED taillights, to complete the look. The cabin is finished in black and dark grey and it’s getting sport seats or optional S sport seats, brushed stainless steel pedals and others.
