Is this the Audi RS1 ?

Judging by the red LED headlights and the black roof, we are looking at a production mule of the A1 ClubSport Quattro Concept which will probably be sold as the RS1. Most definitely it won’t be as powerful as the concept since that vehicle had a modified 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine with no less than 496 hp (370 kW) and 486 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque. The RS1 will have less oomph than the TT-RS and RS3 models which are powered by the same engine with 335 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm).

Of course, the Ingolstadt-based automaker could be working on an actual production version of the concept shown last year at the Wörthersee Tour. If there will be such a car, expect an extremely steep price tag and a production limited to just a few units.

Thanks to Shrawan for the tip!
