Superchips Remaps the Audi A1 1.4 TFSI Sport

The latest upgrade program coming from the aftermarket specialists at Superchips is an ECU remap for the Audi A1 1.4 TFSI Sport, which boosts the power already available under the hood by 26 bhp and 28 Nm of torque. This means it is now developing 146 bhp as compared to the standard version.

“Thoroughly tested in both real world driving conditions and on Superchips’ own in-house chassis dynomometer, the Audi A1 1.4 TFSI Sport ECU remap produces impressive gains. Power is boosted by a maximum of 26 bhp at 6168 rpm, with increases from as low as 2000 rpm right throughout the operating range, up to the rev limiter at 6500 rpm,”
the company explains.

Naturally, Superchips put the car to the test after all this power increase, and found out that it shaves a massive 1.1 seconds from the Audi A1’s quoted 8.9 seconds 0-60 mph time, clocking the sprint in just 7.8 seconds. “Testing has proved that the Superchipped Audi sips fuel with an average consumption of 45 mpg being recorded,” they add.

In-gear acceleration is also transformed, with testing proving that the Superchips remapped Audi A1 covers the 50-70 mph 5th gear increment 1.1 seconds faster than the standard car. Top speed remains untested, but should exceed the factory A1’s 126 mph maximum, where conditions allow.

The remap is available for both six speed manual and seven speed semi-automatic S-Tronic variants of the 120 bhp (122 PS) Audi A1 1.4 TFSI produced from May 2011 onwards, and is priced at £455.
