2011 Tokyo: Audi A1 Samurai Blue pays tribute to Japanese soccer team

2011 Audi A1 Sportback Samurai Blue

Joining the new Audi A1 Sportback at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is a special edition A1 3-door hatch with the colors of the Japanese national soccer team. Known as the Audi A1 Samurai Blue, the model shows Audi’s respect for Japan’s soccer (known as football everywhere else in the world) team – the model will go on sale as a one-off model with the proceeds going to charity.

The special one-off model gets 18-inch wheels with an exclusive polygonal design, a black interior with contrasting stitching in blue and corresponding colorful accents for the air vent nozzles, inlays, center console and floor mats.

Power comes from a 1.4 liter TFSI making 122-hp.

Audi says it plans to sell a limited edition model next year based on the Samurai Blue model.
