I don’t know what it’s like where you are (Southern Californians, shut up, no one wants to hear how nice it is all year for you) but down in Texas right now it’s starting to get hot as hell. Summer here starts in April and goes til about Christmas. Maybe Audi S1 snow drifts will make me feel better.

I know the Audi S1 isn’t sold here because of a stupid little reason called “Nobody would buy it,” but I really wish it was. With 231 horsepower and quattro all-wheel drive, it seems like a fun little luxury performance luxury egg thing.

Does great in the snow, too. Just watch.
