And then AMG had some fun with it. In the first version of the car, they extracted 360 hp (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) from
The fastest supermini around The Audi S1 is already at the top of the mini hot hatches regarding performance. However, tuners wouldn’t be tuners if they were content with the status quo so that the S1 can be improved in several ways.
