Although the Audi S1 Sportback was released a few years ago, it is still as unique and stylish today as it was when it debuted. As one of the first premium competitors for the classic Mini Cooper, it had high expectations to live up to, and it actually did quite well. The car looked fantastic, had a neat little interior packed with gadgetry, and on the road it had ample power connected to lively steering. To give it a bit of a boost so that it can continue to keep up with the standards of the cars on the road today, ABT have produced an upgrade kit which turns the little S1 into a bit of a pocket rocket.
Look at the size of the Audi S1, and then consider the fact that ABT have given it 228kW of power and 440Nm of torque…absolutely staggering! Once again, this performance gain is achieved through ECU tuning, which across the board almost always has substantial effects. In terms of cosmetics, the upgrade package includes a suspension kit which lets you lower the car by 30mm, as well as muscular wheel arches which cover those sexy super sharp styled 18″ wheels. The combined result of all of this is a car which can be expected to reach 100km/h from 0 in around 5 seconds.
