The latest issue features Jason Statham’s visit to Kitzbühel, Austria back in January.
OUR FAVORITE ACTION HERO, JASON STATHAM, GETS THE FULL AUDI QUATTRO TREATMENT AND TELLS US WHY HE LOVES THEM…
First of all there were the ski races on the Hahnenkamm in Kitzbuehel which are the highlight of the alpine winter sports season. The most challenging event in the Audi FIS Ski World Cup, the downhill race on the “Streif,” is a special attraction each year for the top sports stars and celebrities from all over the world.
Have you been before?
“No, it’s my first time here so it’s exciting.”
What about the downhill racers?
“There are very few people in the world who can stand up in the fashion they do. You can’t think about the consequences, it is pure adrenalin pumping through the body, pure focus.”
Do you collect cars?
“Guys like cars, it’s just one of those things. You fantasise about owning something that goes fast. When you work your way up, you get the next one, the faster one. It becomes an obsession.”
Are you OK when you are not driving?
“I’m a good passenger, I try to show a bit of faith in who is driving, so I don’t grip the dashboard and pull my nails out.”
“I think it is all about the build, quality and the amazing race team. They embody what a driver would be looking for, the rigidity of the build, the excellence of the engine, the performance and the handling. The whole brand stands out in the way that it should. The proof is in the pudding. Get behind the wheel, take it for a spin. I particularly like the sports versions, they are second to none.”
