The cheapest Audi they sell in America is nearly $35,000. The average price for an Audi is $50,000. The most expensive is $210,000. That care is the R8 GT Spyder.
So, how "gangsta" is that? I guess pimping athletes to multinationals and media conglomerates has garnered the International Olympic Committee some really sweet rides for their "fleet."
I can hear Jacques Rogge now as he swaggers towards his Swiss Blond secretary:
"... Hey baby, let's take the R8 GT Spyder to Cafe de Grancy. I am in the mood for their smoked duck breast and foie gras. Let's talk about business so we can use the company gold card... Let's take the silver one, the red one is just too... garish, don't you think?"
Audi will equip the IOC’s fleet in Lausanne and various international IOC events, such as the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, with a range of vehicles. The agreement also includes plans to jointly develop environmental, humanitarian and social projects.
"The IOC is delighted to have Audi, a world renowned company, as its official automobile supplier, and we look forward to developing further social responsibility initiatives with them in the near future as part of this agreement," said IOC Director General Christophe De Kepper.
