INGOLSTADT, Germany — Audi AG in Europe has released a new Competition Kit for its A1 compact, inspired by the Audi R18 E-tron Quattro racecar.
Essentially a cosmetic package, the Competition Kit is one of several customization kits offered on the A1 hatchback to European customers. The A1 is not for sale in the U.S.
Available in R18 Gray and R18 Red, the kit includes matte exterior film with Ice Silver and Misano Red accents, as well as front and rear spoilers, side skirts and unique wheels.
The A1 Competition Kit R18 was displayed at this week's Worthersee Tour in Austria and is available through Audi's European dealer network.
Edmunds says: What does the A1 have in common with the Le Mans-winning R18? Not much.
