    1. On Location: Real Life Pics of New Audi RS 4 Avant at Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      One of our favorite spots to visit while at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is the rather non-descript office building A50. The building is the home of Audi's executive board offices and as such you're always likely to find something interesting parked in front of the place.

      This particular afternoon included two new models. And while the Audi S7 would normally draw a crowd on its own, it nearly is missed ...
    2. On Location: Audi + Ducati = Awesome Photo Shoot with R8 and Diavel Carbon



      By now Audi's purchase of Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati is official and perhaps you've spotted some photos of a red R8 and Ducati Diavel Carbon on Audi's Facebook page. Truth be told, that's our 4 Season R8 test car - coincidentally ordered in very Ducati-esque red with carbon and titanium accents. We ...
    3. On Location: Abt Sportsline Headquarters & Race Shop in Kempten Germany



      When it comes to the Audi world, Abt Sportsline needs no introduction. Best known as one of the longest-running Audi tuners going, Abt also represents Audi's lead factory teams in the DTM and also counts itself as an Audi dealer. Headquartered in Kempten, Germany, Abt is a day jaunt from other Southern Germany Audi destinations such as Ingolstadt and ...
    4. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 4), Including the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet!



      Thus far this week, we've posted galleries from three recent visits to the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on October 18 , October 20 and October 21 . Hitting the same place in just such a short amount of time, we'd expected to begin to see the same old same old... and were quite surprised when we were wrong. Our fourth and final visit (for now), came about a week later ...
    5. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 3)



      As mentioned, over the last two weeks we've had the rare chance to visit the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on four separate occasions. What we found was that there's nearly always something very, very unique in the Audi lexicon to see in and around the brick piazza that makes up the heart of the forum at Audi's headquarters. Of course intended destinations like the Museum ...
    6. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 2)



      As mentioned yesterday, we've spent the better part of the last two weeks in Germany and over four of those days we stopped in for a visit at Audi's world headquarters in the form of the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. With so many nearly back-to-back visits, we expected to see much of the same after the first stop though this was not the case. Back only two days later ...
    7. On Location: Audi Tuning House MTM Headquarters in Wettstetten, Germany



      As mentioned earlier today, we've spent the last two weeks on trips to Germany and managed to collect plenty of content for upcoming features on Fourtitude. Some of this trip included making the quick five-minute drive from Audi's Ingolstadt facility to neighboring Wettstetten. MTM is so close to Audi, we've added them to our official FourSquare list of "Must-Visit" ...
    8. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      Over the last two weeks we've logged as many trips to Germany and visited the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on four separate days. Beyond the gratuitous FourSquare mayorships we've netted at Audi's world HQ , the real thing we learned was just how much to see and experience there is going on in and around Audi's grand piazza on any given day.

      Admittedly, ...
    9. On Location: Sneak Peek of All-New Audi A4 Avant S-line Today at Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      We were on location at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt today for an event planned around a production milestone for Audi and namely the 10 millionth B-segment car to roll off the assembly line. The main event as planned was to focus on the production history, with a chance to view and drive examples of B-segment Audis past. We'll have more coverage of ...
    10. Four Rings Including Blown Mk1 Audi 80 at Mark 1 Madness



      Over the weekend, one of our staff attended the Mk1 Madness event in Mohnton, PA near historic Maple Grove Speedway. Mainly a Volkswagen event, the 'Mk1' in Mk1 Madness stands for the first-generation Volkswagen Golf, a.k.a. Rabbit in North America. Still, like most Volkswagen events, some owners who choose the four ring side of the Volkswagen Group also choose to attend. We made sure to photograph ...
