    1. More Audi RS 3 Photos, Content plus Interesting New Color-Match Wheels for Black Optics Package



      With the first images and details about the new RS 3 Sportback dropped on news outlets this morning, we headed on over to Audi's German market website to see if we could build our own virtual RS 3 in the configurator. Alas, the latest RS car hasn't yet been added to the German site's build-your-own section but that hasn't stopped Audi AG from rolling out a whole second set of ...
    2. Choice Gear(s): Two Radio Shack Audi quattro Rally Cars, 1 Pristine on Ebay, 1 Not So Pristine on 4T



      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. If you remember those days and care to revisit them, we've found just the thing(s).

    3. 2010 LA Auto Show Audi Gallery Added



      Today is the first press day of the 2010 LA Auto Show and, as expected, Audi has stacked its booth with all North American launch automobiles. While there's nothing as-of-yet-unseen being revealed, there's plenty to see that hasn't yet made a showing Stateside in the past.

      Among the mix are these highlights.

    4. Auto Express Publishes Rumor Piece on A1-based S1 Hot Hatch



      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 ...
    5. Audi Seriously Considering Production Version of quattro Concept Says AutoCar



      According to British buff book AutoCar, Audi is seriously considering a production version of its Paris show stopper the quattro Concept. AC's source is none other than quattro GmbH boss Stefan Reil who suggested Audi has had a team of dedicated engineers in Ingolstadt 'advancing plans that it be approved'.

    6. Audi quattro Rally Concept Model Shown in Paris



      Perhaps not surprisingly, the Audi quattro Concept shown in Paris seems to have been the star of the show. With a longitudinally mounted version of the 5-cylinder turbo FSI engine from the Audi TT in a lightened and shortened A5/S5 derived chassis, the car certainly struck a cord in many who saw it there or lusted over photos online. Even more interesting then is this design model shown tucked away ...
    7. Audi R8 LMS Will Not Contest 2011 American Le Mans GTC Class. Okay LMS. How About a US GT3 Series?



      No Audi R8 for GTC
      One very disappointing comment made by ALMS series President Scott Atherton in his State of the Series address was on 2011 plans for the GTC class. Close to GT3 specs in which the R8 LMS already competes in Europe, the GTC class will soldier on with 2010 and 2011 Carrera Cup spec Porsche 911s and be limited to a field of 10.

      Nothing against the Porsches ...
