Our spies have managed to snap the first pictures of the 2014 Audi S1 Sportback.

Caught undergoing testing in northern Scandinavia, the prototype has a low-key appearance as the only visible modification is a four-tailpipe exhaust system. However we can expect the production model will have modified bumpers, revised side skirts and the usual S styling tweaks.

Specifications remain a mystery, but rumors have suggested the car will be equipped with quattro all-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 220 HP (162 kW). Regardless of the final numbers, our spy told us the prototype was "very fast."
