Talk about exclusive. Only nineteen examples of the Audi A1 Quattro Limited Edition are

produces 265PS at 6000rpm - for starters - and 350Nm of torque between 2,500rpm and
4,500rpm. And the result? This tarmac melter roars to 62mph in 5.7 seconds and charges
to a feisty 152mph. As such, it is remarkable that this four-wheel-drive averages 33.2mpg.
The Audi A1 Quattro Limited Edition has other rare features that demand attention.
For starters, every example is finished with striking Glacier White paintwork and has a
high-gloss black roof.

painted 'wings' in the headlights. These complement the two-colour rear spoiler, twin
exhaust pipes, and exclusive bumpers. This six-speed manual also has an aggressive
