    1. Audi Driver: Lady Gaga Apparently #GotAnR8, and No, It's Not a GT



      We're impressed by Lady Gaga's taste. It would appear from these X17Online photos that the avant garde music star has picked up (or perhaps borrowed) a Daytona Grey V10 coupe complete with carbon blades and titanium wheels.

      Many outlets reporting the story have suggested the car is an uber rare R8 GT, with one even running video of a similar looking GT shot in the dealer inventory of Sunset Audi. Paparazzi photos ...
    2. Swedish Professional Skier Jon Olsson Swaps Camo Lamborghini Gallardo for New Audi Supercharged Widebody Audi R8



      Swedish skiing sensation and Red Bull sponsored athlete Jon Olsson established himself firmly as a certified car buff when he began to show up to the slopes in a snow camo wrapped Gallardo that made its own share of waves. So how do you follow up such a ride to the ski slopes? We've been watching Olsson's blog closely over the ...
    3. Audi Driver: Napster Creator, Former Facebook Pres Sean Parker



      According to a recent blog post by Forbes Magazine, Napster creator and former Facebook president Sean Parker drives an Audi. That Justin Timberlake, the actor/musician who played Parker in the movie 'Facebook' has had his own ties with Audi is likely a coincidence, but the real life Parker rolls in a V10 Audi ...
    4. Underground Racing Reveals New 1000hp Twin Turbo System for Audi R8 V10



      Back in 2009, North Carolina-based Underground Racing popped up on our radar when they went and placed a twin turbo system on the Lamborghini Gallardo Nera. Given the similarities between the Gallardo V10 and the R8 V10, we rang them up to see if they were considering an R8 kit. They confirmed they were and now the fruits of their labor are live and in the numbers on their website. There are four configurations, ranging ...
    5. Polished Aluminum Audi R8 V10 Biturbo by MTM Featured in European Car



      Remember that polished aluminum Audi R8 spied on the MTM stand at Geneva Auto Show last spring? In case you don't, here's a quick rundown. The Ingolstadt-based Audi tuner performed perhaps the ultimate Audi engine transplant by dropping the biturbo V10 FSI of the RS 6 into an R8 chassis. The modifications certainly didn't stop there, with aero upgrades, ...
    6. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow Audi R8 Spyder V10 in Sarasota, FL



      When we last toured the quattro GmbH's R8 production line in Neckarsulm, Germany, we were told that most R8s are built in neutral shades such as white, silver, black or grey. Apparently the person who ordered this R8 V10 Spyder didn't get the memo. Dipping into the Audi Exclusive custom paint option for the Audi R8, this particular open-air R8 gets Audi's loud Imola Yellow paint.

      We found ...
    7. 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 ...
    8. Possible Audi R8 GT Spyder Test Mule Spotted at Neckarsulm Factory



      Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder.

      The most obvious change is the GT's large carbon fiber wing spoiler affixed to the rear deck. A closer look also reveals the red ...
    9. Audi Exclusive Sighting: R18 V10 in Garnet Red Pearl Effect



      We've seen Garnet Red Pearl Effect on Audis before, often Q5s. Still, this is the first R8 V10 we've seen in the hue and we like what we see. This particular car was just delivered at Audi North Scottsdale and these iPhone pics were sent to us by Audi brand specialist and former Fourtitude Project A3 owner Brian McCauley. Thanks Brian for the shots.

    10. New Snowpocalypse Themed Commercial Starring R8 from Audi of America Emphasizes Benefits of quattro



      I got an email a few weeks ago from a source at Audi looking for footage of an Audi, preferably an R8, in the snow. The only thing like that I could think of was the the video review Ezra Dyer had done about the R8 V10 for the New York times. Turns out Audi had already zeroed in on ...
