So I have been wondering...
Hodinkee editor Ben was given an RS7 to drive all over Europe this weekend, prior to an article and photoshoot they were doing for a watch company.
I don't know that it was given by the company that they were doing the article for/about, but it certainly seems like it would skew the article regardless.
Is the journalistic integrity of Hodinkee at risk when they receive things like this?
I know they aren't critical of many things on the site, but it seems like it is off kilter.
It's called a press car for a reason and its not the first time, he had Bentley for Basel world, I think he has a good relationship the vag group as he drives a Q5 himself.
Its more a promotional tool for Audi and a way to ad a lifestyle touch to it than anything else, I highly doubt anyone who's intrested in a RS7, is going to buy it based on a review from a watch site and it looks better than them riding round in a Focus from Avis.
It's the same car /drive took across southern Germany a couple weeks ago, so I'm more interested in what kind of mileage that car has and how it's holding up more than anything.
Supersets with a minute break between sets kills me every time.
