Business class high-fliers from the increasingly sought-after Audi range will be joined at next week’s Millbrook-based Company Car in Action event by two of the brand’s most aspirational sports models – the breathtaking RS 4 quattro high performance saloon and the unanimously acclaimed R8 sports car.

The state-of-the-art aluminium-bodied, mid-engined R8 sports car will be on static display at the Bedfordshire proving ground throughout the three-day Company Car in Action Drive and Decide event, which runs from the 19 th to the 21 st of June. The RS 4 quattro, which shares its potent 420PS V8 FSI petrol engine, will play a more mobile role in the hands of professional high performance drivers who will be offering guests ‘fast laps’ of the challenging handling circuits.

There will, of course, be plenty of Audi models at the disposal of the 1,500 key fleet decision makers scheduled to attend the Fleet News-backed CCIA test days. Highlights available for driving and appraisal will include the 265PS S3 quattro, the TT Coupe 2.0 TFSI S tronic and the Q7 3.0 TDI quattro SE. Firm fleet favourites including the A4 2.0 TDI S line saloon and the A6 2.7 TDI S line saloon with ultra-efficient multitronic continuously variable transmission will also be in attendance.

Nathan Dennis, Fleet Sales Marketing Manager at Audi UK, believes the importance of CCIA shouldn’t be under-estimated: “Company Car in Action is the biggest show of its kind and we felt we had to be there. We’re in the midst of an incredibly prolific launch phase that will continue into next year and beyond, and CCIA allows us to present our many newcomers, and established favourites, to our most valued clients in by far the most effective and memorable way possible,” he said.
