Default Audi Quattro Advertisments

Got these in an email and posting here since I dont think it's been posted yet.

This is really awesome. I wonder how the car managed to take such a steep snowy incline.

P.S. Mod's, kindly move to appropriate section if required.

hmmm... is that real? I saw this advertisement and thought it was graphics. The car goes all the way to the top, stops and stays there. I wonder how a 3 tonne car can stop on such a steep incline, that too on a icy incline.

Uhuh.. Looks too much to believe. Unless its being towed in a secret way, I'm puzzled n surprised about its grip..

I think I see cables holding the car.
My next question: Why would anyone build a tower like that with a ramp ?

Audi accomplished the unimaginable in 1986 when rally race car driver Harald Demuth drove an Audi 100 CS quattroТ up to the top of the Pitkavouri ski jump in Kaipola, Finland. This amazing feat was filmed for what became a legendary commercial for the Audi brand throughout Europe. To mark the “25 years of quattro” anniversary in 2005, Audi has done it again. Audi engineer Uwe Bleck piloted an A6 4.2 quattro up the same ski jump some 19 years after the original version.

And a real cute one -

This is somewhat old. I saw this in my mail, and that is before I joined T-BHP.

However, I am once again amazed by the power and the power transmission to wheels of this car.

This video is hilarious. Had me in splits. Poor dog. It looks so confused at the end of the clip.

The audi sky jump ad is 100% real.They also released a making of the ad video.Beneath the car there is cable that the car latches onto when it reaches the top.The driver said " i was doing around 60,it was efforltess,traction brlliant and could have gone faster".It is a standard A6 quattro with snow tyres.
