Audi gives Real Madrid football team a new car, each

November 29, 2013

As if European top-league football players need donations, Audi, Real Madrid’s main sponsor, has just given the whole team a nice new Audi each. The company has a habit of donating cars to the team every year.

Audi RS 6 Cristiano Ronaldo

Most of the team received an Audi Q7 3.0 TDI, which features a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 producing 180kW and 550Nm. In Australia it’s priced from $90,500.

Perhaps the star of the team, Cristiano Ronaldo, was handed the best car of them all; a spanking new RS 6 Avant. The RS 6 comes with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 412kW and 700Nm. It’s priced from $225,000 in Australia.
