A1 quattro is a super special and limited version of Audi A1 of which Audi only makes 333 units. The car started life as a concept, but in response to the positive feedback shown to it, Audi decided to make it. Now Audi tuner ABT decided they can do better and announced an upgrade program for the car.

The standard A1 quattro has a two-liter, turbocharged engine which produces 256 hp and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Delivered to all four wheels, that power enables the car to sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 245 km/h (152.24 mph).

ABT’s version meanwhile has 307 hp and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), which is a lot. But it doesn’t have that big of a impact on the car’s performance. It only shaves 0.3 of a second off the 0 to 100 time. Big deal.

They haven’t done anything to the exterior either, which begs the question why did they even bother touching the car in the first place?
