The Live Life In OVERDRIVE experience began in 2013, in partnership with Audi who were the first manufacturer in India to support this initiative. In 2016, the fourth edition of the Independence Quattro Drive saw Audi's celebrated range of SUVs  take an epic journey to hoist the national flag on the roof of the world, on August 15, 2016! We had the new Audi Q7, Q5 and the Q3 as our workhorses on this drive. Five of these luxurious, capable and stunning SUVs took the participants through some extreme terrain from Chandigarh to Leh and back.  The participants were divided in two groups. The adventure trip for group one began from the 'Fort of Chandi' or the place more popular for being India's first planned city post Independence - Chandigarh. The second group joined the entourage in Leh after a couple of days. The locations that we visited included Khardungla, Siachen, Pangong lake and many more. Scroll down to see all the images captured during this adventure-filled journey.
