The Audi A1 Quattro is a pint-sized predator. This menacing machine may only be the size of a matchbox, but its 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 265PS at 6000rpm – and 350Nm of torque between 2,500rpm and 4,500rpm. And the result? This beast rockets to 62mph in 5.7 seconds and charges to an attention grabbing 152mph. Not bad for a four-wheel-drive that averages 33.2mpg. However, most mere mortals will never see this mighty machine unleash its monstrous power. Only 333 will be produced, many of which are destined for mainland Europe. Some may prowl the British roads in due course, depending on demand.

The Audi A1 Quattro has a few more toys to terrify the population. Every example, for starters, is finished in striking Glacier White and has a high-gloss black roof. Its huge wheels are white too, and this road legal rocket has red painted 'wings' in the headlights. These complement the two-colour rear spoiler, twin exhaust pipes, and exclusive bumpers. This six-speed manual also has an aggressive interior. Check-out the: hard-disk satellite navigation, the booming fourteen speaker sound system, and the LED lighting package. Clearly, this is not a car to mess with. It makes me want to hide next to a cuddly little Fiat.
