India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday (April 11) launched the all-new Audi RS 5 Coupe worth Rs 1.1 crore. Kohli, who is currently leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in the ongoing Indian Premier League, posted a couple of photos of him with the car on micro-blogging site Twitter.
“Bringing motosport to a road near you, this masterpiece of a machine; The Audi RS 5 Coupe. ???????? @AudiIN #NothingToProve.” Virat wrote in the caption of the image.
“We are not looking at volumes for the RS 5 Coupe. Audi is perceived as a young sporty brand and this model will be a main contributor to that image building,” Audi India Head Rahil Ansari said according to Indian Express.
Kohli has been associated with the company for a long time. In 2016, the Indian captain had launched Audi R8 V10.
Virat is currently the face of 17 brands, including Gionee phones, Puma sportswear, MRF Tyres, Tissot watches, oral care brand Colgate and Boost health drinks among others. Moreover, he has invested in a chain of gyms under the brand Chisel, tech startup Sports Convo, apparel line Wrogn, and has his own One8 brand of casual wear, footwear and accessories along with Puma.
