Audi A1 Ducati

At the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale has appeared one of the first clear signs of the recent acquisition of the legendary Italian motorcycle manufacturer by German carmaker Audi (and therefore, by extension, the Volkswagen Group). What we are talking about here is a special version of the Audi A1, renamed Audi A1 Ducati, dedicated to the popular Italian brand .

This particular version of the German hatchback - here in its 5-door ‘Sportback‘ configuration - is characterized by a color scheme heavily inspired by the liveries of the current Ducati range, with the classic ‘Red Ducati’ combined with white, the ‘Tricolore’ pattern on the sides, the Ducati shield logo prominently placed on the bonnet, color-matching alloy wheels with a pretty particular design and, on the doors, the shaded profile of the 1199 Panigale, Ducati’s flagship sportsbike.

At the moment there is basically ni information available about this car, meaning that we do not know if it will eventually be offered as some sort of limited edition version on the market or is it just a show car designed exclusively for promotional purposes, but we will surely keep our ears open for any news on topic.

published by Elxwave

Audi A1 Sportback - Audi A6 Avant

German carmaker Audi announced the new engines that will be available on future models of Audi A1 Sportback, Audi A6 and Audi A6 Avant. Audi will place a particularly interesting new unit on the compact A1, the 2.0-litre TDI with 143 hp mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It is a powerful turbocharged diesel engine able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 217 km/h.

The new addition to the engine range of Audi A1 Sportback is also efficient, with claimed fuel consumption of 4.1 litres per 100 km. The car is only available in the equipment line Ambition, priced at £ 16,880 with the new 2.0 TDI.

The Audi A6 and A6 Avant model will benefit of the new 3.0-litre TFSI engine with 310 hp, coupled to a seven-speed S-Tronic automatic transmission with quattro AWD. This unit will replace the previous 3.0-litre TFSI with 300 hp that comes out of the range.

A more powerful 141 hp 2.0-litre diesel unit will also join the fold at a later time.

Audi A1 Sportback

Audi released details and a large photo gallery of the upcoming Audi A1 Sportback, its new 5-door hatchback that will be officially unveiled in December at the Tokyo Motor Show. Following a number of concept versions, the definitive model will enter the global market in early 2012.

The A1 Sportback will use the same engine range as its 3-door counterpart: the 1.2 TFSI (in power steps of 86 and 122 hp) and 1.4 TFSI (185 hp) turbocharged petrol engines and the 1.6-liter TDI diesel (90 and 105 hp), all of which will be offered in various configurations. A more powerful 141 hp 2.0-litre diesel engine will be added to the A1 line-up in the middle of next year, allowing the diesel A1 to hit the 100 km/h mark in 8.5 seconds whereas the 1.4 TFSI will push the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.0 seconds topping out at 227 km/h.

The dimensions of the Sportback remain almost the same as in the three-door model: 3.95 m long, 1.42 m tall and 1.75 m wide with a wheelbase of 2.47 m. The bodywork will be available in 12 different colors in contrast with the roof line – the roof arch, the roof and the roof spoiler – which will come in 3 different colors. Standard equipment will feature air conditioning, split rear seat, remote-controlled central locking system, power-adjustable side mirrors, power windows, chorus radio and a driver’s seat adjustable in height.
