AVUS Performance Shows Audi RS6 'WHITE POWER'

Horrible German to English translation or a cheap ploy to get media attention?

AVUS Performance has issued a press release announcing the use of the "White Power" title is a mistranslation:

Quote
Dear visitors, readers and customers,

We are very sorry and unfortunate for what has actually happened and is currently happening to our first press report. Due to a mistranslation of our latest project car - the Audi RS6 V10 biturbo - there were lots of radical right-wing rumors on all different blogs and pages that received our first press report. We distance ourselves from the project title - it was done by our press agency which obviously mistranslated our German project name into English. Furthermore we distance ourselves from anything that has to do with that group synonym and we would also like to say sorry if anyone got personally touched.

Deepest Regards

The AVUS PERFORMANCE Team
