Real Madrid Drives New Audi Q7

- Football stars receive new Audi models

- Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane and Raúl bank on FSI power

- The “royals” are thrilled by Audi driving experience

Zinedine Zidane has been fascinated by the Audi Q7 ever since his first encounter with the car a few months ago. From today, the three-time world footballer will be able to drive the new Audi every day: together with his team-mates from Real Madrid the world star received the key for his personal Q7. Like his fellow players Ronaldo and Raúl González Blanco, for example, Zidane opted for the powerful 4.2-litre FSI version of the successful 350-hp model.

Since 2003, AUDI AG has been the exclusive vehicle partner of the Spanish record champion, Real Madrid, continuing to fill this partnership with life. This was the case today, as well: prior to the official acceptance of the vehicle, the football stars were thrilled to complete a driving experience at the wheel of the Audi Q7 on a specially set up circuit covering well over three kilometres and featuring challenges galore in “Real Madrid City.” After Zidane, Ronaldo, Raúl and company, Real fans will also have the chance to follow the tracks of their idols at this venue until July to get a first-hand experience of the virtues of the Audi Q7 which has long set the new benchmark in the SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) class.

Real’s manager Emilio Butragueño accompanied his 23 players to the official handing over of the vehicles with Jesus Gasanz, Chief Executive of Audi in Spain. From now on, the Audi Q7 will be part of the daily scenery around the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu and the practice locations of the “royals.”
