The 26th Wörthersee Tour from 16 to 20 May 2007 celebrated two firsts this year. AUDI AG was represented for the first time as a manufacturer at the legendary meet in Reifnitz am Wörthersee. The car fans, who were expected to number more than 200,000, were also be able to enjoy a world premiere: The Audi TT clubsport quattro design study.
The Ingolstadt company made its debut in southern Austria this year to satisfy the many Audi fans who attend. In recent years, the Wörthersee Tour, better known as the “GTI Meet”, has become a magnet for high-performance enthusiasts and fans of the Audi and Volkswagen brands. In 2007, more than 200,000 visitors and 50,000 vehicles converged the Carinthian Lakes region to attend the event, which was held under the slogan “The lake is calling”.
A particular highlight was the world premiere of the Audi TT clubsport quattro study, when Audi presented a very special TT model. TT and A3 models in a wealth of sporty road versions and a number of dazzling special versions were also on display. To further fire the enthusiasm of the car-mad international audience, Audi also displayed the A3 that will be on the grid at the next 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. The mid-engined R8 sports car, the RS 4 Cabriolet and the brand-new S5 will rounded off the contingent of sporty Audi models.
To ensure that visits to the Wörthersee Tour were an unforgettable Audi experience, drivers of cars built by the brand with the four rings could have themselves and their vehicle photographed at the stand. There were a choice of four different backdrops to set the right scene for the photographs.
Audiʼs debut in Carinthia reflects its support of the meet for car enthusiasts and comes in response to the ever-increasing passion for the brand. Besides a wealth of other stunning exhibits, for visitors to Reifnitz, the Ingolstadt companyʼs world premiere of the TT clubsport quattro was an undisputed highlight of the Wörthersee Tour 2007.
