To celebrate the ongoing 2012 London Olympics, the Ingolstadt-based automaker has unveiled a one-off version of the A1 e-Tron which serves as the firm's exhibition model.

Dubbed as the Audi A1 e-Tron Germany Olympic Team Edition, the one-off wears Germany's colors and rides on a bespoke set of white multi-spoke alloys boasting touches of the country's national colors. Other styling changes include the black bezel headlamps, an exclusive interior trim that adopts a similar patriotic styling, while the roof and side mirrors have "2012" plastered on them.

Audi is an official partner of the National Paralympic Committee Germany and also Germany's Olympic Sports Confederation. The carmaker sent 60 units of the A1 e-Tron to UK's capital where they are used as a shuttle service, travelling between the MS Deutschland cruise ship and the German House.

As a reminder, the Audi A1 e-Tron is motivated by an internal combustion power unit that charges the vehicle's batteries, producing 102 hp (76 kW / 103 PS), which is enough for a 0-60 mph sprint in 10 seconds and a top speed of 80 mph (120 km/h).
