Video: how we made the Audi S1

Check out TopGear's favourite Photoshop artist creating our superhot little Audi. Mesmerising

In the new issue of TopGear magazine - in the shops right now, hurry hurry and pick up some milk while you're there - we feature the new Audi S1.

But here's the cunning and devious thing. There is no new Audi S1. Well, not yet, anyhow. Audi sources have assured us that it's on the way, but we are impatient, so we created our own one.

Actually, we didn't create it. Dougie Wood - official Friend of Top Gear and insanely talented Photoshop-type - created it. Below is a speeded-upped YouTube video detailing exactly how he brought the hot little Audi to life.

It's well worth a few minutes of your life. The boy has skills. Possibly even skillz. If you're in need of those skillz, you can get it touch with Dougie at

Assuming - as we are, perhaps blithely - that the upcoming S1 looks something like this and will be powered by a 1.4-litre turbo- and supercharged four-pot putting out, ooh, 220bhp or so, are you excited about it? We think you should be.

Now share it...
