Driver Tom Kristensen, Designer Frank Lamberty & Audi, Special Guests at Legends of the Autobahn, Monterey Car Week

Once again, Legends of the Autobahn will be a can’t miss event for Audi enthusiasts during the bucket-list Monterey Car Week. As usual, Legends is a gathering of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz owners. This year, the Audi focus will be augmented further with the participation of Audi of America who will be bringing a mix of new Audi models and special guests including Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen and Audi designer Frank Lamberty.

Tom Kristensen
Over his storied career, Kristensen has won the 24 Hours of Le Mans more than any other human. His remarkable nine victories include seven at the wheel of an Audi. He’s also the winningest driver at the 12 Hours of Sebring, with six victories all in Audi LMP cars. His collection of cars includes his Mk1 Audi R8 V8, an Audi R18 LMP car, and his daily driver RS e-tron GT.

Frank Lamberty
In the halls of the studios the Audi design team calls home, Frank Lamberty is also very much a legend. Frank’s influence has touched too many Audi models to count, but he’s the guy largely attributed with the first-generation R8 that reset the bar in the sportscar world, then did it in the racing world by also designing the R8 LMP1.

The Cars
In addition to the special guests, Audi of America will also be displaying a collection of new Audi models representing the breadth of today’s Audi brand. In addition to two Audi R8s with special wrap design penned by Lamberty, Audi also plans to show its range of e-tron electric vehicles.
