  • First Anniversary of Audi Sport in Bahrain with R8 V10, RS 3, TT RS and the RS 3 LMS on the track for customers to enjoy
  • All new Q5 and SQ5 Audi Models presented
  • Audi A8 flagship surprise preview
Audi Bahrain thrilled guests with a presentation of their highest performance Audi Sport models on the race track and surprised the audience with a preview of the all-new Audi A8, which is due to arrive in the market just before Ramadan this year. A packed day also gave guests the opportunity to drive the recently launched Q5 and SQ5 models on the road at the Audi Sport anniversary event.

From 15th to 17th February, Audi Centre Bahrain invited a privileged group of customers to be prepared for a thrill that promised to set their hearts racing at the Bahrain International Circuit.

The excited group celebrated the first anniversary of the Audi Sport introduction to Bahrain with a full day of driving on the celebrated Formula One race track. A packed day of activities gave them the opportunity to not only test the sporty spearhead of the Audi Sport range, the award winning Audi R8 V10, but also the most powerful TT of all time, the Audi TT RS. Its newly developed five-cylinder engine delivers 400 hp – accompanied by an unmistakable sound.

Driving skills were pushed to the limit as guests competed for the best time driving the Audi RS 3 and the TT RS on a specially set up rally-cross time trial event and demonstration laps were given to the successful winners in the RS 3 LMS Race Car. The Audi RS 3 LMS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of up to 265 km/h. In TCR trim, the proven four-cylinder two-liter TFSI engine delivers up to 257 kW (350 HP).

The performance models in the Audi range were complemented by a presentation of the recently launched and hugely popular Audi Q5, together with its performance counterpart, the SQ5 and to complete a day of thrills and excitement, Audi Centre Bahrain surprised their guests with their flagship model, the new Audi A8 at an exclusive preview.

Geetan Jessen, Dealer Principal for Audi Centre Bahrain commented “The participation from all of our guests was fantastic and they were thrilled from start to finish with the range of cars to experience and the activities designed to challenge their driving skills”
