New Audi Vehicles for FC Bayern Players
The handing over event took place on the Piazza in Ingolstadt, where the German record champion stars signed autographs and familiarized themselves with their new company cars.
Most popular model among the Bayern stars this season is the Audi Q7 – as many as ten players chose the premium SUV. Striker Mario Gomez for example selected the 500 hp Q7 V12 TDI with Daytona Grey pearl effect paintwork.
On the other hand, captain Philipp Lahm drives an A6 3.0 TFSI, his team mate Thomas Müller an RS 5 Coupé 4.2 FSI. Coach Jupp Heynckes and his forward Gomez, both went for a Q7.
The partnership between Audi and FC Bayern Munich exists now for nine years. As you can see, the annual vehicle handover is like an early Christmas, receiving toys for the big boys, with the most popular choice being the Q7 SUV.
“We are looking forward to next season with FC Bayern Munich,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board Sales and Marketing of AUDI AG. “With the Audi Cup over the last two days we’ve enjoyed a perfect conclusion to pre-season preparations, now we hand over the new car keys and wish all the players, coaches and management a safe journey and quite obviously lots of goals.”
