FC Bayern Munchen continues to drive cars from Audi. Players and coaches of the international top-flight club used the international cap break for a visit to Ingolstadt this Wednesday to pick up their new 'company cars' at the Audi Piazza.

For the squad around Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels and Robert Lewandowski, the visit to their long-standing vehicle partner Audi was an event on home soil. The soccer players from Munich are now in their 15th season of driving cars of the premium brand. Hundreds of fans from the region and numerous Audi employees gave the players an enthusiastic welcome. Group photos, selfies and autographs were followed by a plant tour for the team.

The sporty RS models of the premium brand have traditionally been very popular with the Munich team. Five players selected the Audi RS 6 Avant as their vehicles - including Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thiago Alcantara. Very popular as well are the Audi Q7 and the even sportier Audi SQ7 TDI version being favored by Müller and Franck Ribery, among others. Coach Jupp Heynckes received an Audi SQ5, and up-and-coming player Felix Gotze opted for the Audi A3 Sportback, a perfect car for urban driving.
