As chief of Audi’s division known as quattro GmbH, Stephan Reil holds an enviable position. If you consider the concept of high-performance, Stephan virtually holds the keys to the kingdom. All of the most exclusive performance products that have come from Audi in the last ten years Mr. Reil has had a hand in developing – RS 4, RS 6, R8, Q7 V12 TDI… the list goes on. S-line models fall under his domain, as do models tailored specifically for their owner by Audi Exclusive. If there were a vote to determine the standard bearer of the passion that drives Audi, then most would probably agree that Mr. Stephan Reil would win such an election.
Not surprisingly, Reil is passionate about what he does. There’s a glint in his eye and he always seems about to smile if a grin is not already on his lips – like he’s getting away with something that perhaps he shouldn’t be doing. But, he should keep it up if you ask Audi’s ever-growing mass of enthusiasts, it’s own Board of Directors firmly within that group.
