Audi S1 to be Unveiled at Geneva Motor Show

Audio will also unveil new TT at the show

Audi has announced that it will unveil the S1 hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The car will use a 230hp turbo 2.0L engine that is used in the Audi S3 and will have AWD standard. The picture here is from Autoexpress and is said to be the actual car. It looks nice, but it is hard to tell how large the car is. It almost looks like it’s Fiat 500 in size.

The car will have a dual-clutch S Tronic transmission offered with a 6-speed manual available. Most of the details on the car are unknown at this time since it hasn’t been officially unveiled.

Audi will also be launching a new TT at the show. The new S1 will hit dealerships in the UK in May. Pricing is unannounced, but it is expected to start at around £27,000. That would put it close in price to the VW Golf GTI.

In a recent interview with the UK's Autocar, Audi technical boss Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg let the big news slip. "The new Q7 will be available in the market next year but the electric turbo ...

BMW International Open - Day Four
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, BMW, Diesel, Luxury There was a time when diesel meant one of two things: This vehicle's owner either wants to save some money at the pump or needs to haul massive loads. It definitely did not mean that the owner of said machine wanted to drive fast, but that perception has slowly but surely been changing over the last several years, with automakers from Volkswagen and Ford to Audi and BMW offering spiced-up versions of their hig ...

The Worst Car I've Ever Driven: Maserati Ghibli V6 S

Jul 25 2014 6:24pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

BMW International Open - Day Four
The Maserati Ghibli is Maserati's answer to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and the Jaguar XF. Maserati's goal with the Ghibli is for it to be the firm's best seller in order to have made 50,000 sales by 2015. Considering Maserati's 100 year heritage, the Ghibli should be solar systems away when it comes to handling and performance. Maserati have based the Ghibli on a shortened version of the Maserati Quattroporte's platfor ...

GM Issues Recalls For Six New Vehicle Recalls
This probably won’t surprise anyone, but we have a number of racers, track-day junkies, and vintage-car owners on staff, so tow vehicles are highly prized around our office. While there are many fine trucks suited to such tasks, Chevrolet’s Silverado won our most recent pickup truck comparison test, making it our top choice in the segment. But we’re slightly vain, so naturally we settled upon that rig’s bett ...
