Not so long ago, on a cold January morning, Audi Gurgaon held the pilot Audi A3 Cabriolet Drive from Gurgaon to Neemrana aka #AudiGurgaonA3Cabride. The excitement was palpable when the Fabulous Five, chosen to participate in this memorable event, walked into the Audi Gurgaon showroom. When the event started off on a crisp January 10, 2016 morning, at 8:00 am,with a cavalcadeof three magnificent Audi A3 Cabriolets, little did the participants know that they were about to make history on social media.
The lucky five to be chosen for this legendary event included four bloggers, each representing a different genre of writing, Aakriti Rana of La ChicaLoca Blog, AanchalSukheeja of Delhi Style Blog, Dhairya Gupta of Motoroidsand KrishBhalla of KrishBPhoto. The fifth memberwas a contest winner from @AudiGurgaon Instagram handle , Abhishek Mudgal
The first thing that really got everyone’s hearts pumping on entering the Audi Gurgaon showroom was the array of vehicles on display. One could see people stealing looks at the different models, almost as though they were fighting some internal battle to resist the temptation to take a closer look. But who can blame them, Audi makes its cars that way!
The epic drive was flagged off after the ceremonial photography session, using the façade of Audi Gurgaon as the backdrop. Needless to say, the cavalcade caught many an eye as they weaved their way through the Gurgaon traffic. One could see people even in luxury cars of other brands taking pictures of the A3 Cabriolets. Some even reversed their own cars back at the traffic lights to get a better look!
Revelling in their time in the limelight, the Fabulous Five drove on till they came across a blossoming mustard field. This seemed the perfect spot on that January morning to take a break and use the scenic surrounds for another perfect photo op!
The ensuing drive can be described in just one word – blissful. The Fabulous Five agreed that the A3 Cabriolet was as stylish and smooth to drive as a cheetah moving through the grasslands.
The entourage reached Neemrana in what seemed to be less than two very short hours. Winding their way through the narrow lanes of this township, they suddenly found themselves faced by the regal Neemrana Fort. The best part was that they were just in time for lunch!
The Neemrana Fort has been transformed into a boutique hotel, the luxurious ambience of which only complemented the Audi cars. Needless to say, the lunch was just as inviting and delectable.
Following lunch, the Fab Five couldn’t resist getting back into the A3 Cabriolets to explore the surroundings. It was like the stars had come out during the day, given the number of eyes that were on the cavalcade through this drive! Again, who can blame them,the A3 Cabriolet is just that stunning!
The landscape and the day called to drive on till the Fabulous Five, who had now been converted into die hard Cabriolet enthusiasts, decided to stop for another photo op. It almost seemed as though one didn’t need to search for the most beautiful scenery if one could have an Audi A3 Cabriolet as the backdrop for photographs.
All that can be said now is that it was definitely a memorable experience and will remain etched in the participants’ minds for a long time to come. And it definitely told Audi Gurgaon that more drives like this one should be planned in future, using their social media presence to find true Audi enthusiasts who would be just as enthusiastic to be a part of another unforgettable experience!
