These are the very first nearly uncamouflaged spyshots of the RS families baby RS1.

But what the prototype is sporting under the hood is the big question.

After the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro which had the 2.5 liter along with 496bhp and a whopping 660 NM of torque, We expect this varient to house the 2.0l TFSI with expected power output of around 280bhp.

The reason why we dont think the car is equipped with the 2.5 liter is the size of the brakes and the supporting disk rotors.

The Audi RS1 will launch in 2012.

One thought on “Audi RS1 Production Prototype Spyshots”

  1. Tony!

    Awesome shots!

    The standard A1 is only 1045 kilos. Add bigger engine, remove some weight here and there, if they can keep this under 1100 kilos, it is going to be a nice little kart, me thinks 🙂

    All depends on which engine they will hang in there of course!
