Audi hands over company cars to Real Madrid stars

Audi hands over company cars to Real Madrid stars
  • Large SUV and RS models particularly popular
  • Handover combined with virtual Formula E race of the players
  • Partnership with Spanish record football champion since 2003

The players from Spanish record champion Real Madrid will be driving Audi cars again in the new season. On 16 November, the football stars received their personal models in the Spanish capital city. Before the handover, the players changed from their football outfits into racing suits. In simulators, they were able to get an impression of the Audi e-tron FE04’s handling, Audi’s fully electric race car in Formula E.

Again, at the very top of the wish list of many footballers, including Gareth Bale, Luka Modrić and Casemiro, is the Audi Q7 (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.6–7.2; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 199–189*). 14 players in total selected the premium SUV, three of them the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid model (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 1.9–1.8; combined electricity consumption in kWh/100 km: 19.0–18.1; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 50–48*). Popular as well are the sporty RS models. Coach Zinédine Zidane opted for the Audi RS 6 Avant (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.6; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 223), Cristiano Ronaldo and Keylor Navas for the Audi RS 7 Sportback (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 9.5; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 221). Captain Sergio Ramos will be driving an Audi R8 Spyder (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 12.5–11.7; combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 292–277*).

Before the handover of the company cars, the football stars performed a virtual test drive in the Audi e-tron FE04. The fully electric race car will have its first official outing at the Formula E season opener in Hong Kong (December 2/3). In addition to the players from Real Madrid, a number of fans qualified for a lap in the race simulator before the handover as well. Dani Carvajal finished as the fastest driver on the circuit inside the replica Formula E cockpit simulator.

Audi has been partnering with Real Madrid since the summer of 2003. The club won three of the most recent four Champions League titles and in 2017 was the first team to even defend the title in the premier competition.
