audi_a1_2MARKING the appearance of the new Audi A1 to UK roads, celebrities have paraded the A1 around London.

Stars from the silver screen including Dominic Cooper, Gemma Arterton, Naomie Harris, Toby Kebbell, Keeley Hawes, Nat Parker and Colin Salmon, joined Matt Dawson, Lemar and others to drive the A1s from London’s Battersea Power Station.

The UK is expected to be a strong market for the new car, which boasts a model range that is exempt from road tax in the first year, and a diesel variant that can deliver a top fuel economy of 70.6mpg.


Prices start from £13,420 (including the new VAT rate of 20 per cent).
