Audi hits full throttle at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Action-packed Goodwood for Audi from 29th June to 2nd July


Audi fans can look forward to another unforgettable immersion into the world of Vorsprung durch Technik at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, particularly those with a passion for supercars and high performance SUVs.

Visitors to the main Audi Goodwood stand will be the first in the world to set eyes on the fastest, most powerful drop-top ever built by Audi. The 610PS R8 V10 plus Spyder will make its Festival debut finished in Audi exclusive micrommata green – the look of this new Audi Sport flagship will be just as hard-hitting as its 3.3-second 0-62mph and 203mph top speed.

Fresh from its curtain call at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the 476PS Q8 sport concept is another unmissable highlight on the Audi stand. The luxury class SUV study features a 3.0-litre TFSI engine which is the first petrol unit to benefit from the Electrically Powered Compressor (EPC) technology that contributes substantially to the SQ7 TDI’s remarkable performance and instantaneous throttle response.


The latest RS 5 Coupé will also make its presence felt at Goodwood as its all-new 2.9-litre V6 TFSI biturbo engine catapults it up Lord March’s history-steeped 1.16-mile hillclimb and its quattro drive and standard rear sport differential help it to scythe through the deceptively tricky corners.

Visitors to the main Audi stand can get up close to a total of 29 stars of the Audi range, including the full Audi Sport RS and R8 line-up, now bolstered by the new 400PS RS 3 Sportback and Saloon models that are due to arrive in the UK later this year. Also taking pride of place will be the Q2 Edition #1 – an exclusive topflight model in the brand’s smallest SUV range, finished in Quantum grey and featuring an unrivalled specification.

Our favourably positioned trackside viewing area and a separate VIP café will be open to all Audi owners who show their key fob on the stand.

Tickets are still available however there is limited availability. No tickets are available through Audi. To find out more visit the Goodwood Festival of Speed website here.
