If the Audi A1 1.4 TFSI didn't win you over, perhaps you'll be interested in the 2012 S1.

Spied near the Nürburgring, the prototype features an aggressive body kit, aluminum accents and a dual exhaust system. Other goodies include a sport-tuned suspension, a high performance braking system and massive alloy wheels.

Power will reportedly be provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that produces 220 PS (162 kW / 217 hp). It will be paired to a new quattro all-wheel drive system that has "an electronically controlled, hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch located in front of the rear axle for an optimized distribution of weight."

No word on when the car will be unveiled, but stay tuned for additional information.
