Audi shows off its vast stand for its home motor show
19 July 2011

This is the first picture of Audi’s vast 10 million euro (£8.78m) stand for the Frankfurt motor show.

The exhibition stand will be the largest ever built by the Ingolstadt-based carmaker.

The venue stands on the green open-air exhibition ground called Agora. It has a 12-metre high ceiling and will be 100 metres long and 70 metres wide, and capable of housing more than 30 cars.

It also features a 400-metre integrated test track, which itself can accommodate nine cars at a time, offering visitors an opportunity to have a ride in about a dozen production as well as show cars exhibited by the marque.

Audi’s indoor track venue follows BMW’s similar setup at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show. Mercedes is also planning to install its own test track at the Frankfurt show.
