Audi has announced that they will host their first-ever official SEMA display this year.
At SEMA, Audi will unveil a series of After Sales products and technology. “We’re thrilled to be a part of the SEMA experience, and look forward to turning heads with our vehicles, demonstrations, and a sophisticated lineup of After Sales and electronics products that enhance connectivity and entertainment,” says David Tait, the lead executive for the After Sales project, as well as Audi’s SEMA spokesman.The After Sales project should help Audi customers personalize their cars to suit their needs.
After Sales won’t be the only thing Audi will bring to SEMA however. Audi will bring their Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak, which they will organize a demonstration of, as well as an R8 Custom Spyder by STaSIS Engineering. This will be an R8 Spyder tuned by STaSIS Engineering, with a supercharged 5.2L V10 putting out an impressive 710 hp.
Audi will also display some “special, extreme sports Audi gear.” We’re not quite sure what that means, but we’ll make sure to let you know once SEMA begins.

“We think Audi owners will be delighted to learn about our new technologies that will enable them, in cooperation with Audi dealers, to personalize their Audi vehicles in exciting and interesting new ways. Our show cars will represent the pinnacle of what owners can do with an Audi, and unleash a variety of opportunities for our vendors, as well.”
In addition to After Sales products, the six-vehicle display will feature the Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak, and the Audi R8 Custom Spyder by STaSIS Engineering equipped with a supercharged engine (5.2 FSIV10 – 710 HP).

The exhibit will also be equipped with special, extreme sports Audi gear.
“Let’s just say we’ll have a few distinctive, concept items on the stand that definitely won’t
disappoint the unique SEMA audience,” he added.
In addition to a record vehicles sales year, Audi After Sales has expanded its portfolio of Genuine Audi Accessories offerings leading to an all-time record sales year in both its parts and accessory business within the U.S.
September 2010 sales of Audi cars and SUVs marked the sixth record month of 2010, and also represented the best third quarter ever in Audi U.S. sales history. The September results keep the German luxury automaker on track to set a vehicle sales record in the U.S. by year end. The existing annual sales record for Audi in the U.S. is 93,506 vehicles sold in 2007.
