      Posting electronic cards offering holiday wishes from our friends in the Audi world is something we've been wanting to do for a while. We'll call this a holiday collection because the world of Audi permeates through many cultures, many religions and many lands. We'll skip tying it to one particular holiday and instead just stick with the generic "holiday" term.

      An eagle-eyed Jalopnik reader caught a camera crew with the Audi quattro Concept earlier today in Malibu near the Pacific Coast Highway. Running non-concept RS 5 wheels, the car was on public roads and refuelling at a gas station, accompanied by several people and a camera crew toting Q5.

      If you were a kid when the Audi ur quattro was ripping up the rally scene then you likely remember a day when the toy designers at Radio Shack were a bit more worldly - pushing R/C cars like the Martini Porsche 935 or Audi's own quattro... well before the monster truck cheese peddled today.

      According to British buff book AutoCar, Audi is seriously considering a production version of its Paris show stopper the quattro Concept.

    7. Choice Gear: Build Your Own Audi Ur quattro with Printer & Cardboard



      We've stumbled across a little classic Audi love over on Tinypic.com in the form of an Audi ur quattro template. A red original quattro such as this one has been tearing up the screens in the BBC series Ashes to Ashes and that car apparently inspired this paper cutout template.

      The theory is simple.

      1. Go to TinyPic and download the highest resolution version of the car.
      2. Print with color printer ...

    9. Four Ringer: Crazy Ur quattro Laps Nordschleife on Public Day



      We hadn't planned on making two posts in a row (much less the same day) from Nordschleifenbilder.de but this car warrants the second post. We're not sure what to make of this very purposeful looking Audi that seems to be based on the Audi ur quattro. While doors, roof and hood appear stock the car's super wide bodywork would make even the legendary Sport quattro envious of their ...
