Default Cocktail Party with AUDI

Stevens Creek AUDI dealer invited me to an exclusive cocktail party called Audi Stars & Cars. The main part of the event was to meet Marco Werner who is the champion race car driver for the amazing Audi R10 TDI in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race. Ofcourse, the fantastic R10 TDI was present there as well. All kinds of alcohol was served with some great food to go with it. I got a glimpse of all the revised Audis; A3, A4, RS4, A6, A8, S5, TT, R8, Q7. Stasis, an Audi customizing brand had some of their modified Audis too.
The R10 TDI looks really nice. It is low and wide. This was the first time that I saw a Le Mans race car in my life.
Posting some pictures....

Some brands really know how to organise a cracker of an event, dont they! Nice pictures Stratos. That R10 TDI has rewritten history on racing diesels. How was the R8's personality in person? Most supercars feel very different in reality, some positive...some negative.

P.S. : Did you drink?

Audi Gurgaon did host a party to launch the new A4. Though it may not have been at such a lavish scale, but it was nice all the same !!!



Cheers

Love the wheels on the white RS6. Gives the effect that the tyres are sticking way out of the wheels.

Thumbs up oddy

Beautiful pictures Stratos!
How'd you always end up stumbling onto such events man?

The Le Mans car looks awesome in pictures, can only imagine what an impression it would make in person.

The black car - is it one of the original Audi Quattros?

I believe that is a S8 and not the RS6.

Your right; Audi needs to start differentiating their models more. Still, a beautiful looking beast.

Wonderful pictures Nishant. Way to go!!

Look at the service bay. You can practically put your food on the floor and eat.
