Audi will launch the hot version of its A1 supermini, the S1, at the Paris motor show according to details revealed on the organisers' website.

The S1 is listed alongside the A7 as a model to be revealed in France, but unlike many other manufacturers, Audi has yet to reveal any information about its new car.

An Audi spokesman was coy on the matter, saying only that there would be a 'new A1 variation' on the stand at Paris.

Styling is expected to be a development of the S-line model pictured above.
