    1. 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.

    2. 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 ...
    3. Video: Audi Sport Engine Boss Ulrich Baretzky on the Past and Future of Audi at Le Mans



      Earlier today Audi Sport revealed its new and revolutionary Audi R18 racecar. While we haven't had a chance to chat first hand with any of the team just yet we did have a chance to sit down for an in-depth conversation with Dr. Ulrich Baretzky while in Atlanta for the 2010 Petit Le Mans race.

    4. Supposed Audi R4 e-tron Concept Images Surface via Autobild, Believed Legitimate



      Over the weekend some images surfaced that appear to be design drawings of the rumored Audi R4 e-tron Concept Car expected to debut Paris. We're not precisely sure of the source of the images posted by R5T in our Audi Lounge forum but the most credible article online including the pics seems to be that of German car magazine Autobild.

    5. More TDIs for America Says Audi Marketing Boss



      Last year there was a repositioning at Audi whereby product planning was streamlined into the marketing channel and that team reports to Audi of America marketing boss Scott Keogh since that time. Given Keogh's senior position in general we'd already expect him to know what's what when it comes to future Audi products but this change makes that ...
    6. Caption This 24 Hours of Le Mans Edition: Re-Thinking Timo & The Lions



      We get some photos via our various sources that make us scratch our heads and some that simply make us laugh aloud. This is usually followed by an attempt to caption what's going on. So why not apply to the above? I was just revisiting our photo gallery from the 1000 km of Spa earlier this season. At the time this was just an odd photo, but given this year's equally ...
    7. Audi R15 TDI Add-On Released for Need for Speed Shift Video Game



      One of the things we love about computer platform racing games is the likelihood that they'll be modified by their users. Want a new track? No problem. Like a new car that's not in the game? We'll just see about that. Case in point is that of the Audi R15 TDI racecar and the video game Need for Speed Shift.

      Granted, you need to know your way around the video game installation, but still... This latest R15 TDI was ...
    8. Video: Audi Le Mans Episode 1 with English Translation



      We ran a link to this video last week when Audi TV published it on YouTube but now an English translation has surfaced from Audi of America and given most of our readership is English-speaking we've decided to re-post. Watch it below.

    9. Video: TheSmokingTire.com Test Audi A3 TDI Fuel Efficiency with L.A. to Grand Canyon Run



      The guys over at TheSmokingTire.com have released one of their latest episodes whereby they test the fuel efficiency of the A3 TDI. The guys surmise that the range of the A3 is just short of the distance to the Grand Canyon from Los Angeles and they aim to make the run without a refill. It's not an overly scientific experiment but it is entertaining.

    10. Allan McNish Video Blog on YouTube from AutoSport.com



      When we posted a link to Allan McNish's video blog from Spa several weeks ago we were impressed by the behind the scenes view the Scot gave us even if it was out of focus, and even more impressed by how many of our readers thoroughly enjoyed the bit. So, when we ran into Allan at Le Mans we asked if he'd be continuing the video journal at ...
