    1. Essen 2011 Photo Galleries and Wrap-Up



      Often compared to America's SEMA Show, the tuner-focused Essen Motor Show is really something more unto itself. Whereas the SEMA Show is really an industry only affair and with no day for a media push, Essen is there for the public, the car enthusiast and also there as a platform of PR for tuners... so yes, a day reserved for the media. Where you'd need to be a distributor to place an order ...
    2. Audi A1 by Caractere



      Audi tuning house Caractere has released the first images of its product range for the A1. Set to debut at the Essen Motor Show imminently, the kit shows the company's take on Audi's smallest offering. Check below for more pics and details.

      This body kit consists of :

      * a front spoiler (3 pieces) (incompatible with the exterior S-line package)
      * a rear spoiler
      ...
    3. SEMA Show 2011: Audi and Lamborghini Photo Gallery Published



      Yesterday marked the opening of the 2011 SEMA Show, the event that marks the annual gathering of the automotive aftermarket. Unlike 2010, Audi skipped the idea of having an official presence at SEMA this year but that doesn't mean there's nothing to see. Fourtitude contributing editor Jamie Vondruska is at SEMA this week and we've gotten our first wave of Audi and Lamborghini photos from him. Check ...
    4. Video: Choice Sights and Sounds of H20i 2011



      This past weekend we attended the enthusiast show H20 International in Ocean City, MD and filed a photo gallery of what we saw HERE. In addition to those photos, we also captured some video of two very cool cars (below). First up is a twin turbo R8 that seemed to like to cruise around the field with no rear bumper... all the better for viewing and hearing what it had to offer. The second ...
    5. Stanced B6/B7 Audi Sedan Thoroughly Built and Ready to Stir Debate



      Check out this stanced candy apple red 2002 A4 featured this month on Eurotuner.com. Given its many (and we mean many) modifications, SEMA show subtlety level and mix of many modifying styles, we're guessing most everyone who sees it will have an opinion on it.

      For the OE+ guys, the car sports a B7 nose conversion despite its B6 rounded tail and 2002 production ...
    6. New D4 Audi A8 Body Kit Invents "RS8" Look



      Though perhaps they've wished otherwise, every Audi enthusiast knows Ingolstadt's never affixed its RS initials on the backside of its Q-ship A8. Likely executives and brand managers don't think the raw performance nature suits Audi's big Q-ship though that hasn't stopped Germany's Hofele Design from taking a stab at it and with a very clean result. ...
    7. Extremely Clean C1 Audi 100 2-Door Featured on German 'Youngtimer' Website



      Be it in the traditional side of the enthusiast scene or the air-ride equipped 'stance' side of the scene, a pervading trend in modified cars are clean vintage cars with an OE+ look. Take for instance this '73 100 LS 2-door featured on German vintage car website Youngtimer Scene. The rarity of a C1 2-door, combined with stunning bodywork and restored vintage mesh-style racing wheels probably had you at "hello", but just in case ...
    8. Ultimate Twin Turbo B7 Audi RS 4 Build Update on Eurotuner



      If we had to imagine the ultimate B7 RS 4 build, we'd likely not be far from the project currently built by Advance Technologies, HT Motorsport and EFI Express for owner Bryan Whitmore. Effectively Whitmore wanted a twin turbo 4.2 FSI engine from the C5 RS 6 swapped into his RS 4. And while that might be enough to satisfy most, Bryan and his burgeoning team are going so, so much ...
    9. Akrapovič Teases with Photos of New Exhaust Upgrade for the Audi R8 V10



      Those in the world of exotic cars and likely those car buffs beyond know the name Akrapovič. Known for their lightweight titanium exhaust systems that border on artwork, the team at Akrapovič have begun a tease of their latest product tailored to the Audi R8 V10. The shot above of an R8 Spyder is from the team's Facebook page and shots below were gleaned from ...
    10. Motor Trend Samples Supercharged STaSIS Audi R8 5.2 Challenge Extreme Edition



      MotorTrend.com has filed a driving report on STaSIS' most radical supercharger setup for the Audi R8 V10. Dubbed 'Challenge Extreme' Edition, this matte grey coupe was well loved the staffer who wrote the piece. Here's a sample.

      One more question came to mind as I rolled up the nearly pitch-black windows of the Challenge Extreme
