Our friends at Audi tuner MTM have dropped us their 2010 e-card, sharing just how snow-covered their headquarters just outside of Ingolstadt is. Alas, while quattro is in the cards for the Audi A1 we doubt their car has it. We're betting it could use all-wheel drive right about now.

MTM has released a few more photos of their treatment for the Audi A1. MTM's focus tends to be engine tuning, suspension and wheels so this car is free of any body kits though certainly has it's share of vinyl. More important is what's in store for the A1. For now MTM's website lists their popular BiMoto wheels
It was more than rumor that an S1 would display at last September's Paris Motor Show. Even the official website for the industry event listed an S-car version of Audi's hot-selling A1 3-door. In the end sources at Audi told us the car was pulled from the Paris lineup.

We're not certain but we suspect the spy photographers who nabbed this Ingolstadt plated A1 running big wheels may be correct that it is an S1 test mule.

Will it have quattro? If it doesn't it'll be the first S-car
As you may already know, Fourtitude was in Germany earlier this week for the unveiling of the Audi A7 at the the Pinakothek der Moderne museum in Munich . Flying out of the Munich airport on our way back to the States we popped in to the Audi Forum at the Munich Airport and were pleased to encounter the Audi A7 a second time. The car is currently on display in a
During a quick visit to the Theophilus Chin blog today we ran across one of his latest photoshopped works, the render of an Audi A1 coupe. Based on the image of an A1 S-line, Chin changed the roofline to something a little more TT-inspired though we're not exactly sure it works with the A1's decidedly taller proportions.
Will Audi build an A1 coupe? Not likely. We've heard of 5-door and Cabriolet
Car & Driver European contributor Jens Meiners has published a driving review of the A1 following its launch with the European press last week. We're always impressed with Meiners' grasp of the Audi brand and accuracy in Audi intel on future product so we read the piece with interest.
Our buddies over at GermanCarBlog have translated and summarized the latest Audi intel to be published by German car magazine Auto Motor und Sport. A M und S is usually pretty accurate so we read it with interest. Here's a quick rundown.

- Coupe and Roadster
- Positioned BELOW TT
- Engines Include 1.4 TFSI

Given this first-gen car won't be sold Stateside we'll have to live vicariously through the Brits for now but we can do so with a plethora of reports. Check them out via the links below.
