Thumbs up Audi Pace Cars

The Ausdi Pace Cars drove threw the brisbane city today to the albert street hotel i think, across from the city botanical gardens.

Man do they sound awesome, it was peak hour trafiic and the note from the exhaust was awesome, the only cars i could hear the whole way throughout the city, i want one..

Did anyone else get to hear the experience? I saw them at 5.30 driving in the city, and i saw them when i left uni at the hotel at 8.

I was on the Freeway in Perth after the Barbagallo round. We pulled alongside one 120kmph and i wind down the window. The guy sees and floors the thing - the sound was orgasmic.

I like Audi

Re: Audi Pace Cars

One thing that's always confused me - why do they use Audi pace cars?

Because AVESCO charged $350,000 this year for the honour of supplying the pace cars.

Ford rightly said 'No Thanks' and diverted the money into the FPR budget.

Re: Audi Pace Cars

the thing that always sits in the back of my mind, why would audi pay so much for the category they dont even enter in? sure there's alot of viewers but poeople are only watching the race for the f vs h, not audi. 350k is a lot for nothing, or is there a nega tega application coming?

Re: Audi Pace Cars

Hey, not everyone that is into V8 Supercars drives Falcons and Commodores.

The Fans come from across all society.

Re: Audi Pace Cars

Being a pace car gives thne model credability. Thats what Audi want with their new V8 in an Australian market, saturated by HSV's and now FPV's. For 350k, it's a cheap way to gain mass market credability. How much has HSV spent???

It's called 'leverage'...
