Audi S1

Autocar - - USED CARS -

Price £13,950

It’s a won­der the S1 ever got past Audi’s ac­coun­tants. True, it shared its 2.0-litre turbo engine with other Volk­swa­gen Group cars, but the four-wheel drive sys­tem needed to han­dle 228bhp ne­ces­si­tated an en­tirely dif­fer­ent multi-link rear sus­pen­sion set-up and a new rear floor­pan. This meant some ver­sions pushed £30,000, which is no doubt why the S1 is far rarer than the Volk­swa­gen Golf GTI. How­ever, this should count in this diminu­tive rocket’s favour in fu­ture.
