Audi campaigner Mike Rockenfeller experienced what was arguably the most unusual acceleration competition in his career as a race driver. In the new Audi SQ7 TDI that celebrated its debut at Audi’s annual press conference, the DTM Champion was pitted against an Alpha Jet. At the Maribor airport in Slovenia a fierce sprint battle ensued in which the SQ7 TDI with an electric compressor, 435 hp of engine power, and the former Le Mans winner at the wheel delivered a brilliant performance.
