    1. Virtual Holiday Mantle (VHM): Greetings from Leading Photshop Renderer Larson



      We're guessing you've heard of Larson or at least seen his work in leading magazines like Auto Motor und Sport and Road and Track. We like to think we're pretty good around the Fourtitude offices at creating cool renders of future vehicles but we pale in comparison to our friend Larson.

      In addition to his rendering skills, Lars also tells us he's a fan of Audi and in particular Audi design. For these ...
    2. Photography: New Studio Shots of Audi e-tron Spyder Concept Painted Red for Design Miami



      For those who followed Audi's presence at Design Miami this year you may have noticed this Audi e-tron Spyder painted in red. An e-tron Spyder Concept was first shown in Paris in September. That car was silver, so either Audi has built a second one or it has repainted the concept for its Miami showing. Either way, Audi has released a new set of studio PR shots of the car. Enjoy.

    5. Audi R8 Spyder with RS 5 Rotor Wheels from Audi Canada



      It's been noted in the that Audi's German configurator now features MY2011 details for the R8 including R8 4.2 Spyder information and also the addition of Audi's rotor-style 5-spoke alloy as seen on the TT RS and RS 5. However, even though the wheels had been clearly seen in the CGI-built configurator pics we had yet to see a car with the setup ...
    6. Audi R8 4.2 Photo Gallery Added Plus German Configurator Live



      When Audi dropped its announcement of the R8 4.2 Spyder recently, it did so with barely any photography whatsoever. Most news outlets ran images of the V10 version with the story but we're still not entirely sure those are accurate. Why? We've managed to find some more shots of the V8 version of the Spyder including shots from the Audi Germany configurator that's just gone live and the ...

      Photoshop ace and Audi enthusiast Jon Sibal was inspired last week by the R8 Spyder starring in the new Iron Man 2 movie and also by the just-released R8 GT when he put together these renders of an R8 GT Spyder. Of course with the coupe just announced there's no real indicator yet that Audi might consider building such a beast but if Jon's renders are any indicator we hope that they do.
