Prices for the upgrades start from 1990 euro (£1600) and rise to 6990 euro (£5625)
18 June 2012

Audi has introduced the ‘A1 amplified red’ and ‘A1 amplified white’ editions to its Audi A1 and A1 Sportback models. They are restricted to the German market only.

Based on Audi A1 ‘Ambition line’ models and available in three tiers - amplified, amplified plus and amplified advanced – cars are finished with the choice of either Misano Red pearl effect or Glacier White metallic paint. 

Cars featuring the entry-level amplified spec get an S-line roof spoiler, 17-inch alloys, a transparent film on the car’s bonnet and sport seats with complimentary red or gray stitching inside. 

An upgrade to amplified plus adds Audi’s aero competition kit as well as LED taillights and stainless steel covers for the car’s pedals. A gloss black diffuser insert that houses the car’s matte black exhaust tips is also included.

The final equipment level is limited to A1 models with over 121bhp. Included on the list are Silk Nappa leather S sports seats, 18-inch wheels, tinted windows, a large gloss black boot spoiler and xenon headlamps. 

Prices for the upgrades start from 1990 euro (£1600) for amplified spec cars  and increase to 3990 euro (£3210) and 6990 euro (£5625) for amplified plus and amplified advanced respectively.

Our Verdict

Audi A1

The A1 is a stylish, high quality and competent supermini, if a little expensive, but does it have the edge over the Mini hatch, Seat Ibiza and the Ford Fiesta?

I thought it was going to be sporting a boot filling sub...

More useful than matt black exhaust tips, which are "complimentary" if you don't wash it anyway...

You beat me to it, mine are partially matt black most of the time. And you forget, its 'matte' black, not matt black: Audi are a premium manufacturer you know.

Slow News Day??

...for £1600 you can buy a tidy used car.

  • If you want to know about a car, read a forum dedicated to it; that's a real 'long term test' . No manufacturer's warranty, no fleet managers servicing deals, no journalist's name to oil the wheels...

Stainless steel covers for the pedals!! 

You would have to be the biggest COCK in the world to want those, let alone pay extra for them.

"They are restricted to the German market only."

Once again, the British car buyer gets another slap in the face from our European "friends" ...

"Audi launches a special edition trim line that isn't available in the UK, based on a trim line that isn't available in the UK either."

Are we getting every single press release for every country replroduced nowadays, or is this an attempt to just stir up more anti-Audi feeling that's already rife in the Autocar forums?

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
