So I go away for what I thought was a relaxing Easter weekend on a farm in the Cederberg with some friends. Turns out the farmer is a 4x4 buff and has laid out a challenging technical course... He was very keen to see what my allroad could do - and so was I!
Unfortunately I was too busy driving and trying to keep up with him to get much footage, but for this obstacle I asked the farmer's neighbour to video me going into and out of a ditch to test suspension and traction control...
I struggled on some of the slow steep sandy sections (wrong tyres!) but was pleased a couple of days later when he had some visitors from the Cape Town Landrover Club - and they couldn't do those sections either!
Well I did read somewhere that the Audi allroad is the only all-wheel drive "softroader" that has successfully completed the Landrover proving grounds course...

Idee, die Flunder einfach mal ohne den Endschalldämpfer zu fahren. Hier
