ABT has presented their tuned version of the new Audi A1 Sportback. The name of the project is AS1 Sportback.

The styling package includes arbon fibre vents to the wings just behind the wheels, and carbon fibre side skirt additions. There is also a carbon diffuser with a centrally mounted twin exit exhaust system. The car rolls a set of 18-inch ABT split-rim alloy wheels which are considerably lighter than the stock ones.

There’s been a fair bit of work under the bonnet too, with the 1.4 litre TFSi engine in both states of tune a boost. The 122 hp model jumps to 160 hp, while 185 hp variant now has 210 hp, enough for a decent performance increase. There are also smaller increases available for the 1.2 litre petrol and 1.6 litre TDi engines.
