From the perspective of a wise fictional narrator who has seen it all on the racetrack, this spot titled ”Test Drive” leads the viewer through highly visual metaphors that depict a few of the heart thumping moments that one would feel when behind the wheel of an Audi sport vehicle, including the new TT RS, RS 3 and RB Spyder models.

He observes that with these high adrenaline Audis, you aren't test driving the car but rather the cars are test driving you.

Salomon Ligthelm of Stink directed the piece for Venables Bell & Partners.
