The Audi A1 is pretty cool hatch that we’d love to have hear in the United States as an affordable entry-level luxury compact. However, some people think its worth a lot more than just that… even if it’s colored in pink.
An Audi A1 put together by British artist Damien Hirst was sold at Elton John’s White Tie & Tiara Ball last week, fetching a staggering £350,000 ($528,142 USD) during the auction.
The proceeds from the auction will support his largest annual fundraiser for his AIDS Foundation.
Refresher: The 2011 Audi A1 will go on sale in Europe later this year with prices starting around 16,000 euros ($22,062 USD). Power will come from a lineup of 4-cylinder engines, which consists of two TDI diesels and two TFSI gasoline units with output ranging from 84-hp to 122-hp. Mated to a 7-speed S tronic transmission, fuel-economy will range from 44 mpg and 62 mpg.
