Audi Commercial: The Ultimate Paintball Duet

The Duel

Staggering video by Audi promoting there brand new version of the RS4. This restyled version incorporates the same 4.2 liters direct-injected V-8 of the previous RS4. This time the V8 has been tweaked to now produce 450 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. A Quattro AWD system will be responsible to convert this power to the road. In normal driving the torque will be rear-biased at 40/60 percent. A crown-wheel center differential can adjust this ratio almost instantly between 70/30 and 15/85 according to road conditions and driver input. A special edition sport differential that can handle the full amount of torque on the rear wheels can be ordered as extra. Regarding the design, the car has a very sporty yet classy look. The 2 big rear exhaust tips are just gorgeous. They will be fitted on all the RS models.

Audi Paint ballFor this video, “Rubber Republic” fitted the two fully equipped 2013 RS4 with professional paint ball guns and a couple of GoPro cameras. (You can check the making of the video by clicking here). The output is a big mess of paint in this military hangar, to the sound of “Push it to the Limit,” by Paul Engeman. Two professional drivers, Jim Dowdall & Colin Skeaping, two of the UK’s most experienced stuntmen, were picked for this Ultimate Paintball Duet, they earned points each time they were able to hit each others car with a paint ball. (You can check an interview with them by clicking here) Will there be a Paintball Edition RS4 avant? Well as much as I would like it, I am sorry to tell you no.

BMW Commercial: London 2012

M5 sandBMW have always had astonishing commercials. Recall the “Bullet Commercial” that was released less than a month ago. It was amazing, to advertise their M5 as the fastest sedan available they compared it to the Bullet of a gun. The M5 features an amazing V8 Twin turbo charged engine that was already discussed on TheAdsGarage. For the Olympics, BMW found as usual a nice idea to promote the German athletes while showing their last new born, the magnificent M5. The commercial was shot on the sands of Wales. Several episodes of top gear were filmed on their. The beach is amazing for car drifting. This commercial is simple, original and straight to the point. Enjoy! To check the previous M5 commercials you can type “M5” in the search box at the top of the page.

Volkswagen Commercial: The Cabrio.

Remember how the cars you had the most fun in never had a roof? This is the new commercial for the 2012 Golf Cabriolet. It’s just a golf but with no roof on. It’s going to feature the same engine range as the normal golf going from the 1.4 turbo to the GTI 2.0 Turbocharged engine that delivers 211hp. I didn’t really like this new idea of golf with no roof. I find the original golf much more attractive. I prefer regular hatchback sporty car. Regarding the commercial, it’s simple and nice. The song in this VW cabriolet commercial is Days from The Best and Kollektable.

Subaru Commercial: Scorched

This is one whooping commercial! This ad by Subaru is filmed in a melting garage due to an unknown source of heat. The effects filmed at 2000 fps using Phantom technology at the beginning of the video are just amazing. I already discussed the BRZ in my previous post “Your Story With”. This car is the result of the combined work of two big car companies Toyota and Subaru. I find their outcome really special and amazing. The car has very special and unique features like a very low center of gravity, light weight and a descent design.

Mercedes Commercial: SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary

Video

Introducing the new 45th Anniversary edition of the SL65 AMG. Mercedes announced that it will produce only 45 specimens of this beast. This special edition model will feature the same SL65 AMG 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that delivers 621hp and 737 lb-ft. Other than the “designo magno graphite” matte paint, and some 45th edition badges, this special edition version has mostly the same features as the regular SL65 AMG.
Regarding the Ad, the tear of that middle aged man a the beginning of the commercial is just priceless. This SL 65 AMG is definitively “the only place where men can cry”.

Mazda Commercial: “Mazda 2 vs Wall of Death”

Mazda 2 wall of death teamIntroducing the Mazda2, sport edition. The small compact hatchback by Mazda. It features a 1.5 liters engine delivering 100hp and 98 ft-lbs of torque, just enough for a small trip around the city. But today, it is taking a small trip around the Wall of Death, a wood-paneled motordrome. The stunt was achieved thanks to the small size and light weight of the Mazda2, the centrifugal force and the expertise of “Dynomite” Dave Seymour of Demon Drome. Dave is a professional rider who has been practicing a century old extreme sport, riding the Wall of Death.

Mazda 2This ad actually shows how light and compact the Mazda is. The motordrome is originally designed for motorcycles to ride on it, not cars. But the Mazda was able to fit in the arena and perform the stunt. Dave took the car for approximately 8 laps on the wall, driving at 50 km/h while experiencing a 2.5g g-force. I really liked the ad, it was a good idea to combine the Mazda2 and “Dynomite” even though they come from totally different worlds. Mazda really tried a very challenging stunt/ad and succeeded. Hope the ad campaign is that successful as well. You can check the Making of “the Mazda 2 vs Wall of Death”.
