Audi A1 Quattro price

Since posting the story about 256hp limited-edition A1 Quattro yesterday a source close to Audi has given us both good news and bad news. The good is that the two-litre four-wheel drive supermini will come to the UK, albeit in left-hand drive only. And here's the bad: it'll cost £34,000. If you add all the extras, that'll climb to a whopping £48,000!

Audi had given us the impression that the four-wheel drive hot hatch would come fully loaded, as this line in the press release suggests: "The A1 quattro will be suitably lavishly equipped with many features taken directly from the luxury class."

However our source, who asked to remain anonymous, said that extras like the Silk Nappa leather (£1,100), Super Sports Seats (£600) and hard-drive navigation (£1,375) will bump up the price.

Whether that quoted 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds was achieved with the car fully-loaded with extras, we weren't told, but passing on the options must yield a more welcome weight saving from the car rather than your wallet.

    Slow news day?
    I'm sure everyone expected this to be expensive. Not for me, but there's obviously a market for it.

    Some fool will buy it I suppose. I can think of a hundred more appealing products for that money coffee

    The alloys look great but the car is an abomination style wise. When I see them in the flesh the high roof and massive front end are almost comical. Immediate loss of respect for any owner/driver imo.

    Audi A3 is a far better looking car in every way. The S3 would get the nod for me.

    Not for me. I'd be needing Super Super Sports Seats at a minimum.

    Super Sports Seats, so common.
