2010 Paris Auto Show: Audi A1 1.4 TFSI Live Photos

Follow Nelson

The 2010 Paris Auto Show is winding down, but there's still much to be seen, including Audi's punchiest version of the A1, the 1.4 TFSI.

Packing a supercharger, a turbocharger, and 185 wild horses, the A1 1.4 TFSI is just a quattro all-wheel-drive system short of earning an S1 badge. Despite the lack of the sporty name, the little hatch can get to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds, hit a top speed of 141 mph and pull in 39.8 mpg US. Oh, and we won't be getting it. Hmmph.

Being front-wheel drive, the car's 185 horsepower aren't put to the best use possible, though with the combination of super- and turbo-charged induction, the little car makes heaps of torque from just off idle--1,500 rpm to be precise. It should be a riot to drive.

It's not bad to look at, either, as these live photos from the floor of the 2010 Paris Auto Show demonstrate. Chain the green-eyed monster in the corner and hit the gallery above to see what you'll be missing.

  1. I like the front, looks very nice. The rear, on the other hand, could've spent more time on the design. The taillights are horrible. If they were thinner, I could see it look very nice.
