$1m Audi show rolls in

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - CRUISE CONTROL | -

MORE than $1 mil­lion of Audi’s best have rolled into Cairns for a lim­ited run of test drives.

The six high per­for­mance Ger­man sports cars, sedans, wag­ons and SUVs are lined up on Mul­grave Rd out­side the deal­er­ship.

With com­bined power of 1560kW and torque of 3110 New­ton me­tres, the Audis are in town un­til Mon­day.

Head­ing the range is the R8 V10 coupe with a price tag of about $380,000.

Oth­ers are a $260K Audi RS6 Avant, a $83K RSQ3, a $225K A8 LWB saloon, a $123K A6 All­road and a $106K A6 saloon.

Audi Cen­tre Cairns man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Alan Bax­ter said the road­show was de­signed to show­case the lat­est in high­tech­nol­ogy, high-per­for­mance ve­hi­cles from Audi.

``The mil­lion-dol­lar ve­hi­cle fleet high­lights the brand’s high-per­for­mance range, demon­strat­ing Audi’s phi­los­o­phy of pro­gres­sive per­for­mance and tech­nol­ogy,’’ he said.

Mr Bax­ter said the road­show was an ex­cel­lent way to high­light the sports cre­den­tials of the Audi brand through­out ru­ral and re­gional Aus­tralia.

``This road­show of­fers cus­tomers in re­gional ar­eas the op­por­tu­nity to get closer to the Audi brand,’’ he said.

``Audi is a steadily grow­ing brand in Aus­tralia with a range of S and RS mod­els which clearly high­light our cre­den­tials at the pre­mium end of the mar­ket,’’ he said.

``How­ever, for some of our smaller re­gional deal­er­ships, there may not be the ca­pac­ity to dis­play the en­tire range of th­ese high-per­for­mance ve­hi­cles, mak­ing the Per­for­mance Road­show the ideal way for cus­tomers to ex­pe­ri­ence the full suite of the brand’s sportscar range.

Mr Bax­ter said the deal­er­ship team was com­mit­ted to grow­ing the Audi brand in Cairns and to giv­ing the com­mu­nity op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pe­ri­ence what the brand could of­fer. ``This Per­for­mance Road­show rep­re­sents Audi’s grow­ing strength in ru­ral and re­gional Queens­land and we are proud to be a ma­jor part of that growth,’’ he said.

``The Road­show ac­tu­ally spot­lights what Audi is do­ing for cus­tomers to de­liver such per­for­mance with ef­fi­ciency and a level of driver and pas­sen­ger sat­is­fac­tion that is the envy of the in­dus­try.

``For any­one in­ter­ested in the pin­na­cle of cur­rent au­to­mo­tive tech­nol­ogy and a look into the fu­ture of mo­tor­ing, this is a great op­por­tu­nity to get fully im­mersed in the re­ward­ing Audi ex­pe­ri­ence.’’
