Audi news and features from publications and media outlets around the world.
There are a couple of German journalists who've become quite prolific thanks to their usually accurate early reads on moves by the German manufacturers. We usually plug Georg Kacher as the Grand Poobah of that particular Water Buffalo club and C&D's Jens Meiners is definitely an honorary member. So when Jens filed a story over on caranddriver.com this
Remember that green Audi A3 that turned up in our coverage of the 2010 SEMA Show ? At the time we didn't know much about it but now thanks to Sam Du and our buddies over at Eurotuner we have more information about the car.
Los Angelino Jose Romo started out in the Euro lowrider scene that is actually more Hondas than Euros. However, he's moved on and up to an
Fifth Gear, that other British automotive show, recently threw the Audi TT RS up against the Porsche Boxster S and Nissan 370Z. This wasn't your typical match, including an agility test with J-turns and sliding into parking spaces, a drifting competition and finally a hot lap.
We just caught a VERY interesting headline today by our buddies over at Jalopnik. The story title reads "BMW 1 Series M Rounds Nürburgring Slower than Audi TT-RS". Okay Jalop, you have our attention.

The story, more about BMW than Audi, is still quite interesting to us because it zeros in on a fundamental advantage Audi has over its rivals from Germany and we're not talking about quattro. Audi is the key volume
British car magazine AutoCar has driven the Audi quattro Concept in California and filed a report along with original photos of the car. As many know, the quattro Concept has been pulled off Audi's LA Auto Show stand and was spotted last week at a Malibu gas station by a Jalopnik reader.

With prices of the original iconic first-gen TT still going lower, we've been particularly pleased by the number of significantly built Mk1s on the modified scene. Case in point are this pair of TTs owned by a father and son duo who brought them out to Wuste this season. Eurotuner Magazine was on hand and shot the two out in the desert.
Given the bold nature
It was more than rumor that an S1 would display at last September's Paris Motor Show. Even the official website for the industry event listed an S-car version of Audi's hot-selling A1 3-door. In the end sources at Audi told us the car was pulled from the Paris lineup.
In a new story by AutoExpress, the British automotive news magazine suggests that the original
