- New company cars for Ekström, Scheider & colleagues
- Symbolic handover at Hockenheim DTM season opener
From now on, Audi’s DTM stars are privately driving the sportiest top-of-the line model of the A4 range: On the occasion of the DTM season opener at Hockenheim, Mattias Ekström, Oliver Jarvis, Tom Kristensen, Katherine Legge, Mike Rockenfeller, Timo Scheider, Alexandre Prémat, Martin Tomczyk and Markus Winkelhock received their new company cars – a total of nine Audi S4 and S4 Avant vehicles.
Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich and Michael-Julius Renz, Head of Sales Germany of AUDI AG, symbolically handed over the vehicles at Hockenheim.
The Audi S4 and the Audi S4 Avant are the new sporty top-end models in the class of medium-sized vehicles. The S4 is powered by a 245 kW (333 hp) three-liter V6 engine with direct gasoline injection and a mechanical turbocharger. It accelerates the S4 to 100 kph in just 5.1 seconds but on average uses only 9.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. The permanent four-wheel quattro drive superbly puts this power on the road.
