We had a blast yesterday at the Streets of Tomorrow. Even though we had a little mix up signing in, it was a lot of fun with the little ones and wife. My son was in heaven, as was I. Instead of seeing race cars on TV, he got to sit in an Audi LMP1 R8. He was way shy at first but not towards people but I think in awe that a race car was right before him.
The mix up came when we were walking up and had some workers say we could take them (my daughter too) in the Q7 test drives. Well, online it says 4yrs old or older, so we had no intentions of taking them. To make a long (it was) story short, they didn’t let us. I almost got to go by myself but my son wanted to sooo bad and if he couldn’t then I didn’t want to either.
Other than that, the event was awesome. It was also open to the public. You did have to register online but they even say to pass it around, granted a sales thing. I did see a good amount of “other” brands parked around..
On the spot, was a slew of Q7′s. When this design came out I was iffy. I’m a big fan of the new grill etc but for some reason the Q7 caught me off gaurd. It has been growing on me the more I have seen it online. In person it’s a whole new ride with elegant but sporty lines. The grill speaks for itself. Interior is plain and simple Audi perfection. I can say that the included LCD’s in the rear are a bit odd as they are not incorporated into the actual seat/headrest. However, they are removable in the same way a headrest is. I will never own a Q7 so…
After you complete the Q7 test drive, you have the option to take a shuttle over to, Turner Field in our case, test drive the 2006 A3, A4, TT, A6 and A8. On top of that, you can take an insane spin in the 2007 RS4, with a professional driver of course.
The RS4 is nutz. That’s all I can say. We had a small auto-x type loop. From the moment you take off, your head is in the seat. This thing is pushing out 420hp/317tq through its V8 FSI® Direct Injection engine. We had a Phantom Black pearl and a Mugello Blue pearl. I want mine in Imola Yellow or Misano Red please. Unfortunately no white!
