Several mysterious images of an Audi A1 taken from the European trademark office database have surfaced as the Audi RS1 according to JokeForBlog.
Upon initial inspection, the car appears to be an A1 Quattro but it features a monotone appearance and RS style five-spoke alloy wheels. This could imply photos are slightly misleading or the car is a completely different model - possibly the RS1.
We're still on the fence, but the hatchback has an aggressive body kit with new bumpers, revised side skirts and a prominent rear wing.
The A1 Quattro was powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that developed 256 HP (188 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. The RS1, on the other hand, is expected use a detuned version of the TT-RS' 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.
