2014 Audi S1 facelift crashes into snowbank

Last week we brought you the latest and first winter testing spy shots of the new Audi A1/S1 facelift from the snowy Sweden.

Yesterday the same prototype with a local Swedish woman test driver crashed into a snowbank and here we have the pictures.

According to the photographer, when he saw the new S1 again, the test team started to slow him down with two support cars, while the prototype of the Audi S1 facelift started speeding and was far in front of everyone.

Obviously their plan didn’t work, because the lady was waiting at the next junction in front of a stop sign stuck with S1’s front in a snowbank.

Even though the S1 has quattro all-wheel drive, it looks like the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo with around 220bhp was a bit too much for her on these snowy roads.

Only the extra front light was twisted, but nothing else got broken thanks to a soft snow. The driver was also fine, but probably got a little hit on her ego.

While she was trying to get out, all four wheels were spinning (as you can see from some of the pictures looking at the snow under rear tyres), proving the car is a four-wheel-drive model.
