The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the most grueling and exhausting race in the world, pitting drivers from all nations and brands, and their cars having to last an entire day without sustaining mechanical damage. Considered by many to be the most prestigious automobile race in the world, only the best drivers, their teams, and their cars succeed. Audi has always had a commitment to excellence, from local dealerships like Audi of Tucson, to the international scene. You don’t have to look any further than the results of the last 15 Le Mans races, in which an Audi car has won 13.

The most incredible part about this achievement is not only the consistency in which Audi excels, it’s the fact that it is done with cars that are available to the public. The Audi RS models, including the RS5, RS7 and RS8 have all been in the winner’s circle in Le Mans, France. With the RS 5’s 4.2-liter engine, and its ability to hit 124 mph in 10 seconds, but Audi didn’t stop there. Packing more power into the RS7, including a V8 engine and 560 hp, the RS7 was able to hit a top track speed of 174 mph.

Still not satisfied, the engineers at Audi went to work, trying to figure out how the make the fastest car in the industry even faster.  They managed to get the maximum amount of power out of a V8 engine, enabling them to go from zero to sixty in under four seconds. And this power, this speed, and this endurance can be yours, by purchasing one of the Audi RS models from Audi of Tucson or custom building your own on http://www.audiusa.com/models. Everyone dreams of driving a race car, why don’t you turn your dream into a reality?

For thousands of years, the point of the vehicle has been incredibly simple: move from point A to point B. “A car is a good car as long as it gets you there!” many have said. That may have been ok in the past, but in the world of today, a car’s purpose isn’t just to get you there; its purpose is to entertain the driver and passengers, enhance the driving experience, and to do it efficiently. With Audi Connect and the Audi Energy Recovery System, this is easier than ever, and you try it out for yourself at Audi of Tucson.

Audi Connect, available in many new Audi vehicles, including the 2015 Audi A3, works like your own personal driving aid, giving you numerous items of information, ranging from the weather and traffic, to navigation provided by Google Earth and powered by Google Voice. One can drive in a mobile hotspot, with Audi Connect providing Wi-Fi for up to eight devices. Now, your kids can watch their favorite videos on YouTube or anybody in the car can surf the web with fast, secure Wi-Fi.

With Google Earth, the road less travelled can now be the road travelled without worry. Using 3-D terrain, and high resolution visuals, having to stare at driving directions is now a thing of the past. However, the driver needs their eyes on the road, and Audi achieves this with Google Voice. Search for just about anything, from nearby restaurants, to entertainment options. You can even save destinations from Google Maps and transfer them to your myAudi account, and access them on the road. And when you get to your destination, you may find that parking can be a difficult task, but with Audi Connect, that’s no longer a problem. Audi Connect will access real time data to show you the best parking options for wherever you are.

All of these options are available in any model that offers Audi Connect, but to get the ultimate experience, the 2015 Audi A3 is the way to go. Using Audi MMI (MultiMedia Interface), it provides a sleek, modern touch screen. You can even program destinations through your iPhone or Android phone, and stay connected to social media, having your tweets and notifications read to you.

Audi is one of the leaders in energy conservation, and that’s apparent with their Energy Recovery System. By converting kinetic energy, and using solar cells, they not only reduce fuel emissions and consumption, electrical energy is generated. This leads to a cleaner and smoother ride, and also helps the environment in the process.

Audi Connect is many things rolled into one convenient package. It’s an information portal, a parking spot locator, a traffic helicopter, a personal assistant, a music hall, a communication center, a dedicated listener and a meteorologist. It’s a massive world out there, and using Audi Connect, you can explore all of it, in style and simplicity. Visit your local Arizona Audi dealer for more information.
