    1. Just in Time for iPad 4G, Audi Shows off New iPad-Based Entertainment System for A6 and A7 at Geneva Motor Show



      There was so much new on the Audi stand this week at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland that we almost forgot about this particular piece of news. Then we got back from dinner (Geneva Mean Time) and saw news from the States about the iPad 4G announcement and this bumped up to our top story.

      This new system was fitted to the new Audi A6 allroad, ...

    3. Find of the Day: Audi Coupe 100 S from 2011 New York Auto Show Audi A7 Launch Display



      For those who may have missed it, Audi of America hosted the American launch of the A7 at the IAC building in lower Manhattan last spring during New York Auto Show week. Of course the A7 wasn't the only star of the event, a scale paper crafted A7 was also there in addition to this particular red 100 Coupe S.

      West Virginia-based Audi tuning firm STaSIS has released its first photos of the new Audi A7 with upgrades.

    5. Motor Trend Compares Audi A7 to Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz CLS550

    6. Audi Driver: Robert Downey Junior Sporting the New A7



      Celebrity Cars blog has shots of actor Robert Downey Junior sporting a black Audi A7 this past weekend in Los Angeles. Given Audi's tie with Downey's blockbuster Iron Man series, we're not surprised the actor has chosen a four-ringer as his daily ride though he gets extra style points for picking the A7. And it's an S-line rolling on 20s no less.

    7. Audi RS 7 Test Mule Spotted Hot Weather Testing



      Check out these spy photos that came in from our sources this morning. The photographer labeled it as an S7 with a new bumper as S7 test mules have been regular fixtures in testing locales over the last few weeks. Even still, we're pretty sure this is an RS 7 due to that snarling maul.

    8. Driver's Notes: 2011 Audi A7 3.0T FSI quattro (Day #2, US Spec Versus European Spec)



      48 hours into our stay with our Havanna Black Metallic Audi A7 and the car continues to impress. We could go on and on about the design or relay instances where this BMW-driving person or that Lexus-owning person admires the car and inquires about it, but that all seems to run together eventually. Instead, we've decided to focus more on some different aspects about the car. Today we're highlighting the differences between ...
