Audi Delivers A Selection Of Vehicles To Real Madrid Players

In what has become a yearly tradition for Real Madrid players, these extremely talented footballers have just taken delivery of a host of new vehicles from team sponsor Audi.

Given free rein to choose from Audi’s fleet, no less than 14 players opted for the ever-popular Q7, three of which selected the Q7 e-tron quattro variant while one player, Kiko Casilla, picked up the keys to an SQ7 TDI.

Beyond the rather mundane Q7, some players did opt for Audi Sport models, four of which set to drive RS6 Avant Performance models for the next 12 months. A further two players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, will be rocking up to practice in their RS7 Sportbacks.

Other RS models picked by certain Real Madrid players include an R8 Spyder V10 and two RS5 Coupes, like the red one pictured here, chosen by winger Lucas Vazquez.

While attending the delivery event, a handful of players also had the chance to take a virtual test drive in the Audi e-tron FE04, the German manufacturer’s Formula E racer set to make its debut at the season opener in Hong Kong on December 2-3.

    Are they REALLY and TOTALLY free to choose any Audi? Because i did not see the point of choosing Q7.
    RS6,R8,TTRS,A6 allroad ,even RS3 could be better .

    • Obsequious Lickspittle

      You’re assuming that footballers have some level of interest in the car they drive for free.

    • Bo Hanan

      I’m with you. I would also ask about Porsche and BMW options too.

    • Christian Wimmer

      Some probably picked the Q7 because they have large families and don’t care about fuel economy and parking spaces – they are filthy rich after all. 😀

    rivalry on the pitch but have same car sponsorship

  • TheBelltower

    Does Audi think that this is good for their brand? With all of the possible publicity opportunities available to Audi, what braindead marketing sycophant thought that this would be a good idea?

  • Bill Nguyen

    These guys are loaded… Why do they get free cars, they don’t need them? We all know they’d be embarrassed to drive them. Better to give them to people who would actually enjoy them!

    • Zed68

      I’m thinking the same. This his stupid, they don’t need to be given stuff, they could buy any Audi like you and I buy a hamburger. It’s a shame people like this get free things they don’t even need when others are in need.

      • TechLegend

        Sponsorship buddy… plus it’s just for a year. It’s like a free lease for a year.

  • BlackPegasus

    I’ve never been to Madrid. Are Audis seen as a prestigious brand over there? Will these rich athletes even care to drive them?

    • TechLegend

      Audi is still a lux brand over there. These cars are essentially given to them as lease cars for a year as part of the sponsorship of the team and yes they do drive them. If you had the choice of driving your Ferrari or Free Audi to go run errands in a packed city with tight roads and shitty parking spots, you would opt for the free car given to you.

    Millionaire soccer players get free Audis? Thank god!
