13 December 2012, Singapore – The brand new Audi Centre Singapore was officially opened with a big bang. It was a night of glitz and glamour with local celebrities Michelle Chia, Chen Han Wei, Jacelyn Tay, Zhang Yao Dong, Paige Chua, Ann Kok, including English singer/song-writer James Morrison.
Located at 281 Alexandra Road, the new Audi Centre stood up by its futuristic exterior design and façade. It is designed by the collaborative effort between Audi AG’s Corporate Architecture Department and Singapore’s own Ong & Ong. The iconic Audi Centre Singapore is the tallest Audi facility in the region, occupying 32,903 square feet (3065.80 square metres) with 8 stories above ground and 3 stories underground.
Especially for this event, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro race car was flown in. This is the race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world’s most important endurance race. The Metopolitant Team can’t help but marvel at this cool and futuristic looking race car.
To top the evening off, the guests were treated by a rare private performance by English singer/songwriter James Morrison. It was a perfect ending to the evening: to sip champagne while listening to the live performance of James Morrison who belted out his hit songs “You Gave Me Something”, “I Won’t Let You Go”, “Broken Strings” and many more, much to the delight of the guests that evening.
