Audi Sport Club hold a spectacular drive in Oman

Audi Sport Club Oman organized an exclusive drive of the Sultanate for its members, each of whom are owners of Audi R8 and RS models. The drive included a spectacular scenic route from Muscat to Shorfet Al Alamin Hotel in Hatt, Al Hamra.

25 years ago, the first Audi RS model was launched in the form of the Audi RS 2 Avant, marking the beginning of a success story. With their proximity to motor racing and their exclusiveness, the Audi RS models have always held a particular fascination. To date, Audi Sport GmbH, formerly quattro GmbH, has presented a total of 25 RS models. In 2019, six further product innovations are being presented, of which two are completely new RS models.

At Audi, the designation “RS” stands for a philosophy that is driven by a quest for top performance and perfection. “Every RS model expresses the passion that Audi Sport puts into developing their high-performance cars,” said Clive Dias, Sales and Marketing Manager of Wattayah Motors. “Our customers enjoy the RS models as masterful companions for everyday life that convey pure emotion and maximum driving enjoyment.”

The RS models are the spearheads of their respective product lines. They stand for performance, prestige and exclusiveness at the limit of what is technically feasible without any loss of everyday usability. Many of them are pioneers in their market segments and trailblazers for technical innovations. Commenting on the club, Dias continued “We are honoured to have such a dedicated fan base for Audi Sport in Oman. The Audi Sport Club members are truly passionate about the brand and the cars that they drive, and it is great to see them take picturesque group trips such as this to truly enjoy their cars to the fullest.”

The scenic 200km drive began with a gathering at the ‘Healthy Kitchen’ restaurant. The team then made their way to Shorfet Al Alamin in Hatt, where the group stopped for lunch and photographs before enjoying the roads on the way back to Muscat.

Ahmed Al Taie, Founder of the Audi Sport Club said, “The drive was great and, as always, so were the cars. Audi Sport has always produced truly impressive machines that strike a near perfect balance of daily practicality, comfort, and performance. The fact that these qualities extend to the highest performance Audi R8 model, speaks volumes of the engineering prowess of the Audi brand. This is why we love these cars and are grateful to Wattayah Motors for bringing them to Oman and for their support to the Audi Sport Club. We look forward to collaborating with them to organise similar events in the future.”

The Audi models are available in Oman with 5 years /75,000km service, 3 years warranty and 24-hour roadside assistance. To learn more about Audi or to book a test drive, please call +968 24500200 or visit the Audi Oman showroom or
