Well, here you go….
Audi is the main sponsor of Real Madrid and the time has come for the players to receive their yearly refresh of cars. Maybe the R8 wasn’t on the menu as it seems most opted for the Q7. Thankfully there’s an S3, S7, RS5 and an RS6 which means there’s a chance that not all the keys will just be handed over to a family member.
The Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, chose the Audi A8 4.2-liter TDI V8. Mr sensible award goes to Jesús Fernández, who chose the Audi A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI. Oh and the kids got a car too
Here’s the full list:
Iker Casillas: Audi Q7 3.0 TDI

Huge thank you again to Circuit Days for running another unparalleled event. Great organisation and great atmosphere.
Four of RS246′s members attended in a broad range of cars. The morning started with a damp track with many cars suffering from the mixture of water and jet fuel (East Midlands Airport is next door). Lots of spins and offs, but thankfully no significant damage to any cars. As we approached lunch the dry line started to appear and the sun shone throughout the afternoon making way to some track meister laps from the team.

Audi UK really went to town for us and put on a wonderful event with great hospitality, a wonderful selection of S and RS models and renowned artist Ian Cook (Pop Bang Colour) creating a unique painting of the new RS6. We were limited to only 30 attendees but could easily have doubled that. Next time we will have more!!
Below are a selection of images from the day were teams were sent to try out the various models around Millbrook. The play areas included the alpine course, high speed bowl and mile straight. It’s fair to say that the C7 RS6 was the one most wanted to take home
Congratulations to our award winners who were selected based on the most notable owners’ cars on the day. Jay for his pristine B7 RS4 and Hamish for his wonderful C5 RS6 plus.
We always knew Audi had some special models hidden in the closet. Here is one that has appeared recently that shows that Audi does think of those crazy ideas too.
Welcome to the V6 biturbo Mk1 TT RS!! Don’t be fooled by the pictures, the bottom half is a cut down B5 RS4 (170 mm removed) and the top half is a Mk1 TT body.
Alas there was only one ever made as it was no match for the R8 that filled the gap in the market that this prototype looked to fill.
