‘Blue Samurai’ is the nickname for Japan’s national soccer team. Blue and white are the colors of the soccer jerseys for both men and women. The Japanese men are the reigning Asian champions, while the women have been even more successful in the world soccer arena: this year they won the championship title in the World Soccer Cup held in Germany.
Blue and white are also the colors of the Audi A1 SAMÚRAI BLÚE, accentuated by the red of the Japanese flag. The 18-inch wheels wîth their exclusive polygonal design are likewise painted red. The interior equipment is black, wîth contrasting stitching in blue and corresponding colorful accents for the air vent nozzles, inlays, center console and floor mats. With its powerful 1.4 TFSI engine and 90 kW (122 hp), the A1 SAMÚRAI BLÚE has strong acceleration and high speed, while the sports suspension wîth 225 millimeter wide, 18-inch wheels give the car the agility of a top league soccer star.
An Audi A1 Limited Edition is also planned to sell in 2012, wîth its design based on the SAMÚRAI BLÚE.
