Audi have confirmed the A1 Quattro will go on sale in the Uk, albeit in very limited numbers (20 to be precise) with only 333 units being made in total, and only in left hand drive. 
The Audi A1 Quattro will pack a hefty punch from its 2 litre turbo, the same engine used in the S3. The A1 completes the 0-62mph sprint with a time of 5.7sec and can reach a top speed of 152mph. The hardcore A1 not only aims to land a knockout blow on the likes of the Renault Clio Cup and Ford Fiesta ST, but it will also eclipse hot hatches such as the Renault Mégane 250 and Ford Focus ST. The price for the UK market is still to be confirmed though.
