Buzzed Viking Brewery event recap:
The Audi Club Carolinas met on a sunny January Sunday at Buzzed Viking Brewery in Concord, NC to support Veterans Bridge Home and Fiveby Wheels. With over 50 vehicles that attended, folks were able to have lunch, drink beer and debate their car’s attributes together.
For this inaugural Queen City Quattros event of 2022, the club was able to raise $2,000 for the local organization Veterans Bridge Home which works to connect Veterans and their families, in any state of transition, to the community.

New Audi Club sweepstakes for spring 2022!
Audi Club is offering our most iconic prize ever. The Audi quattro Coupé, also known as “ur quattro” (German for “original quattro”) is the car that started it all, launching the Audi brand’s long history with all-wheel drive and asserting the four rings as a rallying legend. This 1985 specimen painted Zermatt Silver Metallic was originally built to U.S. specification, making it the penultimate evolution of the ur quattro sold in the United States. This particular car has been professionally augmented even further, with 20-valve AAN-code 5-cylinder engine built to produce over 300 hp, sport shocks and springs, Porsche brakes, RECARO seats and more. These components combine to make this quattro true to original form, yet a more capable and reliable for ultimate driving enjoyment.
More details and history of the car to come. Click the Sweepstakes Updates link below for the latest on this remarkable car.
