THE COLLECTION and Dwyane Wade Unveil the All-New Audi A7

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2011) - On Thursday, April 7th, THE COLLECTION, South Florida's foremost luxury automotive dealership, along with its brand ambassador and all-star Dwyane Wade, and in association with Ocean Drive Magazine, revealed the highly-anticipated, all-new 2012 Audi A7.

"We are beyond excited to have celebrated the arrival of the new Audi A7 with our customers. It's the perfect combination of sporty and sexy -- in essence, the perfect car for Miami," says Ken Gorin, President and CEO of THE COLLECTION.

Guests at the A7 launch event basked in the exhilarating ambiance of the evening, which included cocktails by Johnnie Walker and La Marca, desserts by gourmet food truck Sugar Rush, grilled meats by authentic Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chao and performances by DJ Rascal and local Latin fusion band Suénalo. The inevitable standout of the night, however, was the unveiling of the five-door coupe -- the Audi A7 -- by CEO Ken Gorin and Dwyane Wade.

Starting at $60,125, Audi is targeting a new vehicle class with the A7. According to MotorTrend, the A7 features design details that reward the driver before the engine has ever been turned on. In fact, this large, elegant five-door model unites the emotion-packed character of a coupe with the comfort and prestige of a sedan. With its lightweight body, a sporty chassis and an advanced multimedia system, it sets standards across the board. Audi delivers the A7 with a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine -- accelerating from 0-to-62 mph in 5.6 seconds.

On the corner of Bird Road and Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables stands Florida's definitive luxury automobile destination, THE COLLECTION.
