audi a1 four
the a1 four is the most ferocious audi a1 you can buy. or should we say could buy as the 333 called (19 of which were earmarked for the uk) have already been sold. still, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to put the model through its paces on british roads. you can tell this a1 has more bite just by looking at it. there’s a set of white whirlwind style 18 inch alloys, aggressive headlamps led daytime running lights with red hued, chunky rear spoilerand wider tailpipes, while a race inspired the four bodykit gives the look of a rally car. shoehorned into the a1′s engine bay is the 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo from the previous generation s3, while that car also do scarpe nike nates its six speed manual box and four all wheel drive. power output is a huge 252bhp that’s 70bhp more than the next best a1, the 182bhp 1.4t four. the power to weight ratio of 182bhp for within is better than the heavier s3, which has characters of 174bhp to within. but the two cars post identical 0 62mph sprint times, at 5.7 seconds. inside, the leather sports steering wheel, textured gearlever and aluminium pedals are well placed, while at low slung driving position adds to the drama. when you fire up this a1, the sports exhausts instantly deliver to warm bubble. at a standstill, it sounds like a rally car. press the throttle and it goes like one, too.there’d gutsy roar backed by a turbo whistle as you surge forwards no wheelspin, no fus scarpe nike s, it just grips and goes. and while there’s a hint of lag at low revs, throttle response is razor sharp once the turbo is spooled up. the car’s poise is impeccable in straight line and through corners, where it’s remarkably flat. shifting gears takes some muscle, but the box is so smooth you’ll be changing up and down for the sake of it. with plenty of feedback from the steering, the car is nimble at high speed and easy to manoeuvre when the peace drops, with strong brakes giving confidence into corners. what lets it down is the price, and that limited production run. if you can find an a1 four, and are able to afford en, it’s one of the best hot hatches we’ve driven. i know stivans, please help me. is the haldex pt / time 4wd to rwd first, then 4wd to the scarpe nike front? as desirable as that would be the doubt its tea houses. that set up would mark audi out surely as unique in the hot hatch segment, with with the exception of the bread van 1 from bavaria. and mr walsh, i’m curious what you’d throw your 41 bags of sand at. i wouldn’t throw any bags at a lhd car, as was the case with this car. which brings me to the article. most of what was said was irrelevant and immaterial. i know, 19, lhd, hot hatches for the uk, the sol. surely its no more than a high priced version of down stream model, just like every car company does. you blackened the car, then went on to sing its praises, almost as though any money would be right for this s scarpe nike pectacular little hot hatch, destined for the hall of fame. um, who’s hall of fame, would that be a btw? you threw your credibility in the air with this contradicting article. they were all pre sold. . then in whopping 19 of the total, the lhd, for the uk. it was to titilation article is only that i had a wrong start and contradictory end.
