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!

Chris Harris explains why quattro delivers in this “History of quattro” video: “It’s all about rationalizing available power into forward motion”. Scream down the straights at Nurburgring with Chris Harris as he unravels differences of the Audi R8 Streetcar and the Audi R8 LMS Ultra Race Car.

Dieseling durch Deutschland, Adventure, Discovery, and Driving through the land of the “Four Rings”
Many years ago, poets and thinkers seeking inspiration crossed German, Austrian, and Italian mountain passes in horse-drawn carriages. In 2014, for the very first time in the history of Audi Club, we will crisscross mountain ranges and passes in a group driving Audi V10 R8 Spyder!
Bang & Olufsen products combine design excellence and technology with strong emotional appeal. The new premium speaker solution from BeoPlay by Bang & Olufsen, BeoPlay A9, is a one-speaker sound solution that is as easy to listen to as it is to decorate with. Just plug it in, link it wirelessly to your device via Airplay or DLNA, and start streaming lush, gorgeous.
The Audi brand has garnered prestige stateside, so too has Audi Club. Our 27 Chapters create the biggest fans of the four rings, and our members prove to be the most loyal customers. I am proud to say that we have made progress in our collaborative effort to increase Audi Club membership. In the last 12 months, we have increased our membership by 6%! This is just the beginning! We have set a goal and a plan to achieve 30,000 members by 2020.
