    Audi news and features from publications and media outlets around the world.

    1. Wolfsgart 2011 Coverage at Audiworld



      One of the great things about the summer season is the widespread presence of niche shows in remote locales around the country. For those looking for German car enthusiast shows in New England, take note of the most recent event report from the editors of Audiworld. We've never heard of Wolfsgart held in Essex Jnunction, VT though after perusing the photo galleries from the event (after the jump below), we definitely ...
    2. R8 GT Week plus: EVO Magazine Video Compares Audi R8 GT with Audi R8 LMS



      Audi UK recently held a press event around the UK-spec Audi R8 GT and took their own stab at pushing stories that it spawned over the edge by including the presence of an R8 LMS GT3-spec racecar giving thrill rides with professional race car driver Marino Franchitti. First to surface from the event is this video from the guys at EVO Magazine. Watch it below.

    3. R8 GT Week plus: Motor Trend Review of the R8 GT Including Video



      As announced late last week, this week is R8 GT content week according to Audi of America. Given this, we've decided to play along and throw even more R8 GT content at our readers. Throughout the week, expect more including new photo sets, video, our own review of the R8 GT and more. For now, we couldn't think of a better place to start the R8 GT Week plus push than this review from ...
    4. Via 4T: Inside Line Pits A6 Versus BMW 5-Series. Guess Who Wins? (Spoiler Alert)



      InsideLine has pitted the all-new Audi A6 against its arch enemy, the BMW 5-series. Closely matched, the two cars are both the 6-cylinder with forced induction variants. The A6 is the 3.0 TFSI and the 5er is the 535 biturbo.

      We have to admit, that the A6 won was not so much of a surprise. Even the last-generation car beat the Bimmer in several recent Car Magazine tests. ...
    5. Via 4T: More Waterfest Coverage from quattroholic



      When shows are as big as Waterfest, we find ourselves perusing photo galleries even if we may have perused the very same show field on the day of the event. Why? Pardon the convenient metaphor, but Waterfest is like water in a leaky bucket. It's fluid, and there's little chance of seeing everything. In as much, we've found quattroholic's report just now and managed ...
    6. Motor Trend Compares Audi A7 to Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz CLS550



      As an automotive enthusiast, you can't deny the attraction of a good old fashioned comparison test. Throw a few competitors together in a mix and the differences really stand out. The results are usually interesting and always debated, so we were curious to read the latest comparo from Motor Trend. In the piece, MT writer Jonny Lieberman pits the Audi A7 ...
    7. Via 4t: Car & Driver Publishes Informative Audi Q3 First Drive Story



      Car & Driver European contributor Jens Meiners has posted his driving impression story from the Audi Q3 launch last week and we're impressed with the results. Mainstream magazines (a.k.a. buff books) like C&D are usually great for driving impressions and putting the car in the context of the industry, but geek knowledge such as chassis component sharing, chassis designations, engine codes, etc. is usually ...
    8. Audi 5-cyl Powered 'Super Chicken' Brings Four Rings and Mad Max Element to Mt. Washington Hillclimb



      Audiworld.com has run a report from the recent Mount Washington Hillclimb. The event has long been associated with Audi and quattros have been taking on the mountain for decades. Even more interesting this year is the more Mad Max looking 'Super Chicken' run this year by Vermont native Paul Tingaud. Running a tuned Audi 5-cylinder and not much else in regards to mass, Paul took home third overall. Read more about it ...
    9. Motor Trend Samples Supercharged STaSIS Audi R8 5.2 Challenge Extreme Edition



      MotorTrend.com has filed a driving report on STaSIS' most radical supercharger setup for the Audi R8 V10. Dubbed 'Challenge Extreme' Edition, this matte grey coupe was well loved the staffer who wrote the piece. Here's a sample.

      One more question came to mind as I rolled up the nearly pitch-black windows of the Challenge Extreme

    10. Via 4T: Autoblog Quick Spin of Q3 S-line



      Autoblog European contributor Matt Davis attended the Q3 launch last week and has penned his impressions of Audi's newest and (thus-far) smallest crossover. And while Q3 reviews aren't all that rare since the launch began in Zurich, Matt's caught our eye because it focuses on the S-line version and includes plenty of unique photos.

      We love the S-line-trimmed steering wheel and those
