Powerful and poised, 2009 Audi Q7 carried on Yokohama ADVAN Sport tires

The Audi Q7, the powerful and poised SUV from one of the world's most respected manufacturers, will be available with Yokohama's acclaimed ADVAN Sport ultra high performance tires beginning early in 2009.

The Q7's celebrated performance and handling have made it a stand-out among premium European SUVs and the addition of ADVAN Sport to the list of available tires is an ideal match for the Q7s dynamic performance, says Yokohama marketing manager Jonathon Karelse.

The Audi Q7 has a clear emphasis on the 'sport' in Sport Utility Vehicle, and the ADVAN Sport ultra high performance tire helps deliver on that promise," Karelse says. "It is the ideal pairing."

The ADVAN Sport is one of the fastest and most capable ultra high performance tires in the world thanks to its nanotechnology tread compound and revolutionary engineering. By marrying a unique evolution of the asymmetrical tread design, highly evolved construction and the breakthrough in compound, the Sport provides competition-level grip in a street tire that performs in wet and dry conditions, across a wide range of temperatures.

The Yokohama ADVAN Sport will be available on selected 2009 Audi Q7 3.6 FSI and 4.2 FSI models.

The ADVAN Sport has also been approved by Audi AG as an original equipment tire for the Audi S8 performance luxury sedan.
