Audi A1 quattro supermini release

According to Audi, the goal was to create "the most powerful and fastest accelerating car of its kind ever created", and the A1 quattro appears to be just that.
However, don't expect to be seeing any audi spare parts for the new A1 in the UK just yet. It would be awhile before any spare will be available.

Audi has said that it is to build just 333 of the limited edition models, all of which will be in left-hand drive and sold on mainland Europe.

A final decision on whether or not Audi UK will import the car will be based in part on customer reaction, added the manufacturer. What do you think? Would you like a fast supermini? Share your thoughts with us.
