    Default Audi test site

    Not much to see but I thought Iíd throw up a couple pictures anyway. There is no one around right now and you can only take pictures outside the building. This is Audiís most Northernly test site in North America in Deadhorse Alaska. They usually donít show up until February to start testing.

    Iím back up in February so I will post pictures if they are around.

    They bring pretty much everything they make up here for Arctic testing.









    This is the lake they test on.

    cool!

    Similar topic, I remember seeing a caravan of Porsches wrapped in black headed north on Highway 2 once, the Cayennes had major gear loaded up on them, it was bloody cold, perhaps testing somewhere in AB

    VW had a bunch of MK4s in Invermere back when I lived there. They headed out to one of the lakes nearby every day.

    The door in the first pic looks so damn cold. Haha.
