Audi Singapore customers and guests were recently treated to an exclusive meet-and-greet event this week with FC Bayern Munich players Leroy Sané, Aphonso Boyle Davies and Yann Sommer, alongside the first official unveiling of the Audi Q8 e-tron in Singapore.
The event, which was held at Audi Centre Singapore, saw the three professional footballers meeting with fans after arriving in Singapore as part of the ongoing Audi Summer Tour 2023 in Asia. They also shared thoughts with the audience on being in the city, their upcoming match with Liverpool FC, and their long-standing partnership with Audi.
“Our team is excited for the upcoming friendly against Liverpool on Wednesday. These matches are important as they set us up for the rest of the season, both physically and mentally,” said Davies. “It has also been great meeting our biggest supporters here in Singapore as part of the Audi Summer Tour. We look forward to closer collaboration between FC Bayern Munich and Audi in the coming years.”
The event also saw the first official unveiling of the Audi Q8 e-tron in Singapore. It will serve as the brand's flagship model for their electric SUV and crossover range. And during our first drive with it, the Q8 e-tron already showed promise with an optimised drive concept, improved aerodynamics, higher charging performance, and expanded battery capacity.
Their latest electric SUV also features recycled materials including the decorative inlay, upholstery material, and seat belt buckles – all part of the brand's resource conservation efforts.
Said Markus Schuster, Managing Director of Audi Singapore, "We are delighted to host FC Bayern Munich and its esteemed players at Audi Centre Singapore today. Our partnership with FC Bayern Munich has spanned over two decades, and we are proud to promote the shared values of progress and innovation through our joint events.
"“We are also proud to unveil our newest e-tron model, the Audi Q8 e-tron. Audi has been championing electric mobility since the launch of the e-tron in 2020, and the Q8 e-tron marks another significant step towards this new future."
The launch of the Q8 e-tron is marks another move by Audi to bump their lineup to feature over 20 electric vehicles by 2026, and eventually move towards having all-electric vehicles from 2026 onwards.
FC Bayern Munich will face off against Liverpool FC tonight at the Singapore Sports Hub as they contest the Singapore Trophy in what is expected to be an exciting adrenaline-filled match!
