Audi has been partnered with the famous Real Madrid Football Club for a long time, since 2003 in fact. Thankfully for Audi, Real Madrid has been very good, with the club winning three of the most recent four Champions League titles and in 2017 being the first team to even defend the title in the premier competition. To reward them for their efforts, and to make these players walking, driving billboards, Audi has given them all new company cars to drive around.
Big time players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Keylor Navas, along with the rest of the team, were recently in Madrid to receive their brand new cars. During the handover, the players traded in their uniforms for racing suits and tested their skills on a simulator.
They virtually drove the brand-new Audi e-tron FE04 electric Formula E race car, which will officially debut at the season opener Hong Kong Gran Prix on Dec 2/3. Dani Carvajal was the fastest player through the simulator.
What’s more interesting is which cars each player received. Some players took family cars, like the Audi Q7, even with a Q7 e-tron making an appearance.
