Among the some 350 invited guests to ‘Audi Night’ were movie stars Jason Statham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Evans and Noomi Rapace.
Joining them were supermodels Lena Gercke and Irina Shayk, the latter best known for her relationship with football star Cristiano Ronaldo and more recently, Hollywood star Bradley Cooper. In order to better suit the atmosphere, Audi also had the e-tron quattro concept standing by in the background as celebrities poses on the red carpet.
For both Statham and Paltrow, this was their first appearance in Kitzbuhel. The venue for the event was the Zur Tenne hotel where professional skiers Felix Neureuther and Marcel Hirscher (both past winners of this local event) put guests in a very sporty mood.
Other big names from the world of sports which attended, were former ski aces Maria Hofl-Riesch, Martina Ertl-Renz and Christa Kinshofer, but also motor sport drivers such as Le Mans winner Benoit Treluyer and Audi DTM drivers Timo Scheider and Mathias Ekstrom.
Providing the soundtrack was US singer Gregory Porter, who made sure the event had a proper “jazzy” atmosphere. Porter is also a former Grammy winner – for best jazz vocal album.
Of course, the best part of the event (which we also get to see in the video) was when the celebs were taken out on the “track” with the help of some quattro power. Understandably so, Jason Statham looked like he was having the time of his life while the car was drifting through the snow, as did Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze.
