Be first to see the new Audi A1

You've already voted Audi's new A1 the most exciting new car of 2010, and now we're offering you the chance to come and see the new supermini in an exclusive, private What Car? preview.

The upmarket supermini hits UK roads in October and is ready to rattle the cages of more established players at this end of the market. It might be based around the Volkswagen Polo, but the Audi A1 is a very different beast and is a stylish car that will have Mini looking nervously over its shoulder.

Even the 13,145 entry-level model is well equipped, too, so don't think you're just paying for the badge. Every car gets a minimum of alloy wheels, remote central locking, air-conditioning, electric front windows and mirrors, and a six-speaker CD stereo that you can connect to your MP3-player.

All A1s are also models of efficiency: the 1.6-litre diesel returns an average of 70.6mpg, and emits just 105g/km of Co2.

How to get involved
We're expecting a high demand for this event, which is taking place from 4-6pm on Tuesday, June 1 at our studios in West London so act now to get your name on the guest list.

There will be representatives from Audi on hand to guide you around the car and answer your questions. Light refreshments will also be provided.

If you'd like to take part, email []( A1 preview) by midnight, Sunday, May 30, including the following info:
• Where you'll be travelling from on the day
• Your mobile number
• What car you currently drive
• A few lines telling us why you're interested in seeing the Audi A1

We'll be asking you for your views on the design, ergonomics and specification of the car your comments will be published in What Car? magazine, along with photos we'll take of you with the car.

You'll also be asked to speak briefly on camera for footage to be used on

We'll be in touch by the close of play on Monday, May 31 if your application has been successful.

(Please note that this is a static viewing of the car you won't be able to drive it at this event.)
