Audi recently held the launch of its limited-edition Audi A1 quattro in the frigid lands of Northern Sweden. With 2.0 TFSI, quattro all-wheel and some interestingly unique trim, Audi should have no problems selling out all 333 examples it plans to build. We suspect the A1 quattro may evolve into an "S1" at some point given we've already seen mules around Ingolstadt with S1-badged instrument clusters but for now this limited edition model will be the prototypical performance A1.
Some of the shots in the set (full gallery linked below) are a great contrast in new versus old. We featured a photo gallery yesterday of the Sport quattro S1 rally car in the snow also shot on location at the same time and today's set linked below by the galleries button depicts the same S1 in several shots of the A1. There are also shots of the car with the facelifted Audi RS 5 as well.
