UK is investing more than Â£6 million to support its R8 high-performance sports car with one of the most ironic claims in the history of advertising: “the slowest car we’ve ever built”. The new campaign featuring the sought-after all-aluminium, quattro four-wheel-driven, V8-powered two-seater breaks this week, and represents the largest investment ever made by Audi UK in the launch of a new car.
The R8 is, of course, anything but slow off the mark: it is the fastest production car Audi has ever produced, but because each one is constructed with painstaking precision, largely by hand, it actually has the by far the slowest build process of all Audi models. Only 450 cars will be delivered in the UK this year, and 750 in 2008, with prices starting at Â£77,000.
“The R8 is the epitome of Vorsprung durch Technik — it embodies everything it stands for — advancement through technology,” explains Peter Duffy, Audi UK’s Head of Marketing. “It also symbolises progressive design, our pursuit of perfection and unrivalled handling built from our motorsport history. We had to tell the story of how the car is built.”
That story will be told in a 90-second commercial developed by creative duo Richard McGrann and Andy Clough of Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH), Audi’s long-standing creative partner and the agency responsible for encapsulating its values in the UK through the ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ catchphrase. It uses a filming technique developed by director Olivier Gondry, and observes a group of real Audi mechanics over a number of days as they construct the vehicle from the very first bolt to the finished car.
“We wanted to make a film which made the process of constructing an R8 as beautiful as the car itself,” explains Richard McGrann. The effect captures the workers’ movement through time — each frame measures a point in time compressed into one shot. Filming took place over eight days in Germany, with each frame requiring a minimum of 20 different shots and four layers to achieve the unique visual effect.
The soundtrack for the commercial is provided by critically acclaimed folk singer Simone White, whose pure vocals and haunting melodies have had both critics and listeners spellbound. The beautiful track, ‘The Beep Beep’, is taken from Simone’s new album — ‘I am the Man.’
The multi-channel campaign breaks on 17 October at 1855hrs during the England vs Russia football match on Sky Sports One*. From 16 November, the commercial will also be aired in cinemas across the UK around quality films such as American Gangster — the latest offering from Ridley Scott starring Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington. Around this time a ‘making of’ programme will also be broadcast on the Audi Channel on Sky 884, and the R8 will begin making two-day appearances on the concourses of major UK stations to give travellers a glimpse of the finished article.
“Humans can be painfully slow. That’s why we use them. Unlike most cars, the Audi R8 in not built on a production line. It’s built in small numbers in a high-tech car crafting facility. Tasks that are usually executed by robots are meticulously executed by hand. It’s a lengthy process, but what it loses in time, it gains in craftmanship. The new Audi R8. The slowest car we’ve ever built.”
“We couldn’t mass produce it if we tried. Supply could never meet the demand for the Audi R8. Virtually every component is assembled by hand in a specially designed workshop. It’s a slow, labour intensive process undertaken by only the most experienced engineers. But a car like this is worth taking time over. The new Audi R8. The slowest car we’ve ever built.”
“It’s what happens when you replace robots with humans. A car as complex as the new Audi R8 can only be built with years of engineering experience. Because it’s built on such a small scale, almost every component has to be skillfully fitted by hand. So while the process might be slow, the car anything but. The new Audi R8. The slowest car we’ve ever built.”

Meet the Jukka brothers – four ‘rednecks’ living in a forest. MTV provided thier only interaction with the outside world. Only little Jukka doesn’t watch it… he’s taught a lesson – for not being cool! Be cool with MTV.
Mtv approached us to produce a large promotion for the Mtv Day 2007. As well as providing almost 20 distinct promotional pages for various italian magazines they asked us to â€œcoverâ€ an entire train station, in Milan, with our Possessed by Music concept. Our answer was â€œHell yeah!â€.
We rolled up our sleeves and go to work, delivered over 40 different advertising panels to cover every single wall, elevator and column. The most spectacular (and funniest) one was a 6 meter square panel that was placed over the floor at the main entrance of Cadorna Station in Central Milan. This piece of work has been our greatest â€œpossessionâ€ to date!
