Audi #WantAnR8 contest returns in a new way

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 28, 2013

Did you miss out on the opportunity to drive an Audi R8 in the automaker’s famous Twitter campaign? You will get another chance with the return of the Audi #WantAnR8 contest. Audi is challenging fans to prove how much they admire the R8 by creating a video while taking their virtual turn on the Sonoma Raceway, featuring original Audi R8 footage and music from recording artists worldwide.

This contest started on Oct. 23 and ends on Nov. 10. To be able to use exclusive Audi R8 video footage, all that fans need to do is visit the #WantAnR8 Tumblr page. They can also use the WeVideo editor to create their own R8 lap at the Sonoma Raceway. The three interfaces for the various skill levels give fans the chance to choose different camera angles and video filters to get their own take of the experience.

The fans can then select a music track from several artists, including Two Door Cinema Club and Robert DeLong (Glassnote Records), La Vida Boheme and Ritmo Machine (Nacional Records), and Miami Horror, Goldroom , and Duologue (Vitalic Noise). To submit entries, fans have to post their video to YouTube and Twitter with the hashtag #WantAnR8. The winners from the previous years will decide who will be the next #WantAnR8 member.

The winner will choose from either one day with the 2014 R8 in their hometown or a weekend trip to the Audi sportscar experience in Sonoma, Calif. To join the contest, go to http://audiusa.tumblr.com/wantanR8. Joanna McCoy, a local D.C. Audi fan, tweeted Audi of America in 2011 about how much she wanted the R8. Audi took notice of Joanna’s hashtag #WantAnR8 and gave her a brand new Audi R8 to use for the day.

Audi launched the official #WantAnR8 Twitter campaign which gave users the chance to drive the flagship Audi R8 V10 for a day just by tweeting. The new 2014 Audi R8 model offers the pinnacle of Audi performance. The new Audi R8 was improved even further with many modifications such as the new seven-speed S tronic transmission and new full-LED headlamp design.
