The Audi S1 is a seriously cool little car. Using the same 2.0-litre turbo engine found in the Mk7 Golf GTI – albeit in a smaller, lighter chassis with 4WD – the new Audi S1 has serious performance from the factory, not to mention huge tuning potential with the right choice of upgrades! One of the fastest ways to increase power is with a software upgrade, something Revo Performance (based in Daventry, UK) specialise in.
By simply plugging in to the vehicle’s diagnostic port and installing the high-performance file, Revo can take the S1’s power up to 310bhp & 320lb-ft with no other modifications necessary – a gain of over 80bhp compared to stock. With those sort of gains available from the stock engine, it’s safe to say the S1 can benefit greatly from chassis upgrades too – something Revo has already got covered.
Utilising our Variant 3 coilover system, the Revo Audi S1 now benefits from adjustable height, rebound and compression damping to suit all driving needs and conditions. The end result is hugely improved driving dynamics and stance without compromising the daily drivability – truly the best of both worlds! In addition to the KW coilovers, Revo have also upgraded the wheels to motorsport-style 18in Rotiform VCEs and a Scorpion turbo-back exhaust system. Now that’s what you call a proper pocket rocket!
