Football and Cars. What do you get when you intersect both of them? By sponsorship and endorsements of cause! German premium car maker, Audi has created a special version of its R8 LMS Ultra racer to honor their special relationship with Spanish champions Real Madrid. That is with the new special edition of the R8, the R8 LMS Ultra Real Madrid Edition.

The Audi R8 with Real Madrid’s decals made it’s debut on the Jarama circuit last week, where some of Real Madrid’s players were invited to co-ride with Audi factory drivers Miguel Molina or Marc Gene. Real Madrid’s most popular footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo drove home in an R8, Benzema opted for an RS5, and manager Jose Mourinho selected the A8, while most of the other players chose the Q7. Real’s goal keeper, Casillas was the most practical, choosing the A6 Avant.

Here is the list with all cars received by the players.

Cristiano Ronaldo: Audi R8
Xabi Alonso: Audi A7
Sergio Ramos: Audi Q7
Jose Mourinho: Audi A8
Iker Casillas: Audi A6 Avant
Karim Benzema: Audi RS5
Álvaro Arbeloa: Audi Q5
Ángel Di María: Audi Q7
Michael Essien: Audi Q7
Luka Modric: Audi A7
Adán: Audi A5 Cabrio
José Callejón: Audi Q7
Morata: Audi Q7
Raúl Albiol: Audi Q7
Ricardo Kaka: Audi Q7
Nacho: Audi A7
Ricardo Carvalho: Audi Q7
Varane: Audi A7
Ozil: Audi Q7

Pepe: Audi Q7

Which is brilliant, consider what will Manchester United will get when the sponsorship from General Motors will take place by next year. Chevrolet Camaro for Robin Van Persie? Rooney should get the Range Rooney instead.
