    1. BTCC Audi A4 from Rob Austin Racing Turns Wheel at Brands Hatch Opener But Doesn't Compete



      The boys at Rob Austin Racing are getting close... very close to ushering in a new era of Audi competition in the BTCC. A privateer effort that will assuredly have their hands full competing with factory backed teams from companies like BMW and even Audi sister brand SEAT , we're most enthused to watch as this REAR-WHEEL DRIVE B8 A4 cuts it up in against other UK touring teams.

    2. 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant Rendered by Acerbus



      We're going to an Acerbus render for the second time today and for good reason.

    5. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS in Porsche's Viper Green



      It's an acquired taste I suspect but Porsche's Viper Green is a staple amongst anyone with a Porsche 911 familiarity. Be it an early '70s long hood or a modern 997 GT3 RS, this vibrant and most primary green offers a very unique take on the "look at me damnit" color palette. Occasionally you'll find an Audi painted in the hue as we have here and, most fitting, it is painted on an RS. It's a TT RS to be specific, ...
