From sailing, biking, to kite-flying, Audi Singapore has launched a unique experience in car launch concepts. This Augmented Reality (AR) event involved turning Marina Bay into an urban playground that integrates the activities that owners of the new Q3 would likely take part in. Guests at the car launch will also get to test-drive the new car.

The star of the event is of course the new SUV, which looks every bit an Audi. Sporting Audi's signature LED wedge-shaped headlights and a handsome mini-Q5 look, the soft-roader oozes quality inside and out.

It will be available in two turbocharged 2.0-litre TFSI engines, the base model delivers 170 bhp with 280 Nm of torque and the range-topper will push 211 bhp with 300 Nm. Audi’s quick S-tronic seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox will help shift the Q3 to a speedy 230km/h in the 211 bhp unit.

Prices start from $221,988 for this premium SUV. The Audi Q3 Arena will be open to public from 24th August — 2nd September 2012, 11am — 8pm daily, at Marina Bay (beside the open air Wilson Parking carpark).
