Audi A1 Quattro is a Little Bit Mad

Audi Sport

Just 333 units of the Audi A1 Quattro were built, but is this showcase of all-wheel drive and horsepower a little bit much? Not at all.

It has a 2.0-liter turbo four sourced from the Audi TTS, a six-speed manual, big brakes and all-wheel drive. Yes, the Audi A1 Quattro hot hatch is unlike nearly anything else in its segment or on the market in general. And it’s rare - just 333 units were made worldwide and all have been sold. With some inspiration taken from the original Audi Quattro, today’s A1 Quattro doesn’t come cheap ($55,000), but it produces a total of 256 horsepower, goes from 0-62 mph in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 152 mph.

Those are some serious numbers and this little hatch is all but guaranteed to become a collectible classic. But is it perhaps a little too mad considering how much power and technology is packed into such a tiny vehicle? The guys over at XCar hope to find out as they take one for a spin.
