audi A1 comes from HS Motorsport
The HS Motorsport Audi A1 1.4 TSI comes with extra power and a discreet styling update. This means the HS Motorsport Audi A1 1.4 TSI develops 147 hp and 250 Nm of torque.
The HS Motorsport Audi A1 1.4 TSI features a new rear bumper, modified to accommodate the new tailpipes, carbon fiber Recaro bucket seats and an Alpine sound system and satellite navigation unit.
HS Motorsport Audi A1 1.4 TSI sits on new 8.5 x 18 inch ASA GT2 alloy wheels, 215/35R18 tires and a H&R coilover suspension system that lowers the ride height by 55 mm at the front axle and 60 mm at the rear. The HS Motorsport Audi A1 1.4 TSI has also been fitted with Brembo performance brakes
The latest modification package for the A1 comes from HS Motorsport, which has modified the 1.4 TSI (122 hp) version of the car, fitting it with an exterior package, modified interior, upgraded engine, new suspension and beefier brakes.
The vehicle’s turbocharged 1.4 liter four-cylinder engine has received an ECU remap and now comes with a 25 hp & 50 Nm output premium, offering a total of 147 hp and 250 Nm. The front axle baking system has been replaced with a new one that was supplied by Brembo.
HS Motorsport offers customers the possibility to choose between two types of rims: the classic ASA GT1, finished in Black Silk Matte with a Silver accent ring and the edgier ASA GT2. The latter use a seven double-spoke design and can be finished in Black Silk Matte or Anthracite Shine (front-polished). The rims come in a 18-inch size and can use 215/35 tires supplied by Vredestein (Ultrac Sessanta) or Hankook (Ventus V12 evo).
The HS Motorsport Audi A1 is dressed in a special Silver paint and comes with a custom rear fascia that incorporates the new exhaust.
While steering clear of body kits, HS has modified the rear bumper so they can fit the twin central tailpipes inspired by the Golf R32. These stainless steel pipes are made by Fox Sport Exhaust Systems and will give this little car a deep throaty rumble!
Other upgrades contributing to the magnificent style of the car and also its handling are the new coilover suspension from H&R which drop the car by 55 mm at the front and 60 mm at the back, and new set of wheels. HS Motorsport offers a wide range of rims in either matte black or silver and in different designs.
The tuner also provides Recaro Sportster CS lightweight bucket seats plus carbon trimming for the interior, and a light power upgrade package for the 1.4 TSI engine which is good for a total 147 hp and 250 Nm.
