Greetings Audi Club members. This past winter, we did not hibernate. Quite the opposite, our National Board, Chapter Leaders, Audi of America and Audi Dealer Network have been busy planning for great events in 2014. The biggest event will be our 30th birthday. The 30th Audi Club National Event will take place in Austin, Texas in the Fall, and this event will coincide with FIA World Endurance Championship (Audi e-tron R18 LMP1) and Tudor Championship (Audi R8 LMS Customer Racing). ACNA Board Directors and Lone Star chapter members met this past February to begin planning for our 30th birthday party. We hope to see many of you in Texas this fall!
2014 is already positioned to be a banner year for Audi of America and Audi Sport Teams so it’s fitting that Audi Club North America is also set to make 2014 big. And what is bigger in the U.S. than Texas? For Texans and Audi Club Lone Star the answer is nothing. Audi Club Lone Star and Audi Club North America are excited to invite you to the 2014 Audi Club North America National Event in Austin, Texas!
We are pleased to announce that Audi Tradition and Audi Club International have joined again together with Audi Sport to offer a camp for ACI members at the Le Mans 24 Hours. The camp will give us the opportunity to experience this thrilling event at first hand, together with Audi staff, Audi partners and Audi suppliers.

For those who have spent some time in Bavaria, you may recall that the two fastest moving objects on wheels are young ladies on bicycles using their bike bells to navigate Munich’s traffic, and Audi diesels, specifically Avants in the passing lane on the Autobahn. Ah yes, there is the occasional “Halo” car at over 260 kph but it is the Diesel Avants that consistently rule the roads. Here is an opportunity to mingle with the diesels in the passing lane.
Happy New Year! 2013 was another busy but rewarding year for Audi Club. Our passion for the Audi brand is celebrated in many different ways—whether driving on a track, winding roads, cross- country journeys, autocrosses—it’s all part of the Audi experience. Members also enjoy social events, auto shows, fun rallies, picnics and more. I am proud to say that in the last year we have made great progress in developing and hosting events that cover so many different interests.
Unrelenting performance, light, agile, smart! Forget raising the bar. Audi shifted the paradigm. There's nothing like losing over 100 pounds to help make you quicker and more agile. The new 2.0 TFSI, four-cylinder S3 is faster and remarkably more nimble at every turn. Audi’s engineers used ultra® lightweight technology and wielded 292 hp with 280 lb-ft of torque. Every S-specific element is engineered to perform. The quattro® all-wheel drive with six-speed Audi S tronic® dual-clutch transmission lets you command the road!
