Imagine ranting online about how much you want do drive a car — and having it come true. For one lucky fan last year, and now more to come, that dream will be a reality.
Audi just announced the relaunch of its #WantAnR8 campaign, which boils down to a contest where R8 fans can tweet about their longing for the chance at having one delivered to them. While the car won’t actually be theirs, the eight winners will be able to choose between taking the car to a track or having it theirs to drive for a day.
Audi will choose two winner after each of the four contest periods, beginning March 20 and running through October 28. Those winners will be chosen by a judging panel and graded on specific criteria. Creativity and originality are worth 34 percent, quality of the conversation that grows from the tweet is worth 33 percent and use and quality of multimedia in the tweet count for, as you hopefully can guess, 33 percent.
Full details on the contest are available on the Audi site.
General Motors has announced that it will be having a car giveaway sweepstakes through its OnStar division. From March 15 until May 31, if you have access to an OnStar equipped vehicle (that’s right, you don’t even need to be a subscriber), you can enter the contest, simply by pushing the OnStar button.
Everything the company builds for sale in the US (apart from the Chevy Volt) is included in the sweepstakes contest, from the Buick Regal and GMC Terrain, to the Chevy Corvette ZR1 and Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon.
So if you’re interested and fancy winning a new GM car; get pressing now!
