I always get excited when I hear about a new RS model from Audi
. Even though the A1 isn't coming to the US, I was still excited to hear that there would be an RS model for 2012. The RS1 is meant to compete with the Mini Cooper JCW, and will be able to offer up (slightly) more power coming from Audi's excellent 2.0 TFSI engine. That horsepower number will be 211, compared to the Cooper's 208. Not a big difference.
