Audi RS1: Is this it?

Audi RS1

We found brand new spy shots of what is supposed to be the Audi RS1. Is this it?

Judging by the red LED headlights and the black roof, we are looking at a production mule of the A1 ClubSport Quattro Concept which will probably be sold as the RS1. Most definitely it won’t be as powerful as the concept since that vehicle had a modified 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine with no less than 496 hp (370 kW) and 486 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque. The RS1 will have less oomph than the TT-RS and RS3 models which are powered by the same engine with 335 hp (250 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm).
