Our friends over at Club Audisport Iberica have been kind enough to send us these amazing photos of this Audi A1 – in nature – and we couldn’t be more thrilled with them! Not only is the vehicle itself fantastic, but the back drop is really unbelievable. We are unable to get the A1 in the US at this time, so we’ll have to let these exclusive pictures hold us over until we are able to get the car here – or until we can travel to these other beautiful parts of the world and see them for ourselves.
Be sure to check out Club Audisport Iberica on Facebook – they are doing some great things on the site and share our passion and enthusiasm for the brand in a big way! We hope you enjoy them and the article they wrote below – and if you have any pictures you want to share, please feel free to send them our way; we would love to see them!
“This Audi A1 is painted in Phantom Black with Ice Silver Metallic roof contrast line and has a set of 17″ x 7.5J ’5-arm’ design bi-colour alloy wheels. This A1 is fitted with the 1.6 TDI 105 HP engine with a 5 gear manual transmission. It gets an average of 6 liters / 100 km in the city with the start/stop system, and on the highway driving carefully it’s consumption is only 4,5 liters / 100 km.”
“The Audi dealer Superwagen wanted us to test the car in all situations possible, so we decided to drive 1000 km in two days from ’92 olympic city of Barcelona to Zaragoza and go back. We had a great surprise when we left the highway and drove until Mequinenza (See Map) using secondary roads. In that moment we realized how funny and agile is the A1 with that VERY direct direction and sporty suspension. Despite we were not using the most powerful A1 engine, it was very easy to overtake other cars and leave behind curves and more curves without feeling tired of driving. It makes you forget you’re driving a car designed to the city. Two front seats have nothing to envy to the A3 ones.”
