    1. Red Sonja Audi R18 TDI and S1 Group B Rally Car Now Available in Forza 4 as of Today



      Though news of this broke last week, we wanted to pass our readers a reminder that the February Download Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 is available as of today. This is great news for Audi motorsport enthusiasts since the pack includes the #2 "Red Sonja" Audi R18 TDI that won the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans as well as an Audi S1 Group B rally car.

      If you wondered why there were few updates this morning ...
    2. Forza 4: New Audi Sport UK Themed Liveries for R15 plus and Bentley Speed 8 / R8C



      We'll admit we're thoroughly addicted to playing Forza Motorsport 4 and driving is only half the fun. The other half is the creation of vinyl groups and livery designs that we've put up for sale on our FOURTITUDEoCOM Forza 4 store and in our Fourtitude car club within the game (friend us within the game and we'll add you to the club).

      In addition to some of our current liveries such as the 2010 R15+ #9 Le Mans ...
    3. 2011 Audi A4 DTM Liveries In Full Color



      Several days ago Audi Sport released information and a limited collection of photos detailing the race liveries (i.e. paint schemes) of their factory-backed cars for the 2011 season. At the time this included just three of the team but now we've got diagrams and photos of each added to our galleries. We're including the diagrams below because they're cool but still photos ...
    4. Endurance-Crea Takes Another Stab at 2011 Audi R18 Livery



      Earlier this week we posted an image by Endurance-Crea envisioning this year's Audi R18 race livery. Up until now the only R18s we've seen have been in Audi Sport's typical new car testing paint scheme or exposed carbon fiber and/or matte black. To see the real race colors, you'll have to wait until Audi arrives with their car in Le Mans or perhaps even sooner during the official Le Mans ...
    5. More Proposed Audi R18 Liveries from Endurance-Crea



      Our attention was most effectively grabbed yesterday when we spotted the shot above posted by Endurance-Crea and reposted by Audi Sport on Facebook. No, the photo is not official but until Audi Sport pulls the wraps off of its 2011 Le Mans spec R18 everyone is left guessing as to what the car might look like in full race livery. Endurance-Crea has grabbed our attention in the past with their creative photoshoppings of ...
    6. Rendered Speculation: 2011 Audi R18 Race Livery Found on Facebook



      Audi may have pulled the wraps off of its 2011 Audi R18 racer weeks ago but we've only seen it thus far in exposed black carbon. Audi Sport typically doesn't reveal its new race liveries until the earliest race weekends, especially for a new car so we know that the black car we have all seen will eventually be painted and likely in the usual mix of silver, red, black, ...
    7. Audi R18 with a Painted Livery Imagined by Joao Pedro Ferreira + Matte Black Audi LMP Retrospective



      Of course when Audi pulled the wraps off of its new R18 TDI last week the car was shown in a menacing matte black and exposed black carbon fiber. Audi has a tradition of showing its new cars in the so-called buff black most preferred by evil-doers and sith lords but the car is bound to get a new paint job or "livery" in racing speak though when that will first appear remains to be seen. Given ...
