Audi of America announced today that it will show up, for the first time ever, at the SEMA Show. The German manufacturer said that it will bring six vehicles at SEMA, and among these we will see the Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak and the Audi R8 Custom Spyder by STaSIS Engineering.
The Audi R8 Custom Spyder by STaSIS Engineering features a supercharged 5.2-liter V10 engine delivering 710 hp, but will also show a new body kit. Regarding the Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak, a demonstration of the vehicle will take place on November 2, just outside the North Hall. (More details to follow).
So, if you are attending this year’s SEMA Show, make sure you visit Audi’s booth, which will be located in the Mobile Electronics Area of the Las Vegas Convention Center's North Hall, Booth 11245.
David Tait, Audi's lead After Sales executive and spokesman on the SEMA project, remarked that the German premium carmaker is thrilled to take part in the SEMA show and to grab the attention of visitors with its vehicles, demonstrations, and a lineup of After Sales and electronics products.
Tait is confident that Audi owners would be delighted to learn about new technologies that will allow them to personalize their Audi vehicles in exciting and interesting new ways. He noted that Audi's SEMA cars will demonstrate the most that owners can do with their Audi vehicles, while providing a variety of opportunities for the brand's vendors.
Audi After Sales posted record-breaking vehicle sales year. By expanding its portfolio of Genuine Audi Accessories offerings in the US, Audi After Sales managed to log a new record sales year in both its parts and accessory business in the country. Audi's vehicle sales in September 2010 had been its sixth record month in year.
It also marked Audi's best third quarter sales in the US. The record sales in September means Audi is still on track to post a new annual sales record in the country this year, possibly eclipsing the 93,506 vehicles sold in 2007.
