Tokyo Live: Audi A1 Samurai Blue and A1 Sportback image

At the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, VW’s owned premium carmaker Audi has unveiled its A1 Samurai Blue edition. In addition, the German automaker launched the A1 Sportback.

The A1 Samurai Blue transforms Audi’s small, three-door hatchback into a soccer homage, a model that will be auctioned with all profits donated to charity.

The 18-inch wheels with their exclusive polygonal design are likewise painted red. The interior equipment is black, with contrasting stitching in blue and corresponding colorful accents for the air vent nozzles, inlays, center console and floor mats.

The car is powered by the A1’s 122-hp 1.4-liter TFSI engine.
In addition, the Germans unveiled the Audi A1 Sportback. A1 Sportback has slightly different dimensions compared to the three-door A1, being 6mm wider and taller.

Audi says that the A1 Sportback will come with a choice of 12 colors, including the Samoa Orange seen in the photos below, being exclusive for the small model.
It is expected to go on sale in early 2012 in Europe, for a starting price of 16.950 EUR for the 1.2 TFSI engine, while the 1.6 with 89 HP will cost 19.050 EUR.
