    1. 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 ...
    2. Hot or Not? New D4 Audi A8 Rims with Lower Ride Height and HUGE Wheels



      We've been big fans of the new Audi A8 ever since we saw it in the alloy at Design Miami and then later test drove it in Europe. In person the car is spectacular but online it has also found its share of critics. The usual comments are that the car is too subtle or looks too much like a big A4. We've found that seeing the car on the road can really improve one's impression of the car and in of course seeing ...
    3. Autobild Artists' Impression of C7 Audi A6 Avant



      We know it's coming, we just don't know when. The Audi A6 is now one of the oldest cars in the Audi fleet and as such it's due for a freshening. And, it won't be just a mild facelift either. When the next new A6 is shown (version C7) Audi's middleweight luxury will migrate to the company's very successful modular MQB platform. Like the A4 before it, a move to MQB is expected to seriously improve the dynamics of the car. ...
    4. 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 ...
    5. New Audi A7 Spy Photos Found at Quattroholic



      A7 spy photos aren't exactly hens teeth when it comes to rarity but a new set is a new set and these shots from quattroholic are both high-res and clean angles. Granted, the car has headache-inducing psychadelia vinyl wrapped over a ll exposed surfaces save lights and windows, but elements liket he car's R8 and A1-like shoulder-mounted rearview mirrors are interesting ...

    6. Audi RS 4 Avant (B8) Renders Show Likely Look of Next RS-Car



      Though the car hasn't yet been officially shown to the public, intel about the B8-generation RS 4 has been out there for a while. Fourtitude sources tell us the car will share drivetrains with the RS 5 and that, when it does finally arrive, the RS 4 will switch back to an Avant-only offering like the B5 RS 4 and its progenitor the RS 2. Apparently sales of the RS 5 are likely cannibalistic to that of an RS 4 sedan so the ...
    7. Photo Gallery: Black Audi R8 Spyder on White Sand from Flickr



      The photo-focused social media site Flickr implemented some significant new changes yesterday and this YouTube like interactive viewing code (shown below) seems to be one of those changes. We found this gallery of a black R8 on white sand over at the AudiDriven Blog


    8. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Pink on Pink Audi S8



      You have to love Dubai. A land where the super wealthy make the super wealthy look poor is a natural place for automotive oddities such as this pink S8 to feel at home. We've featured pink Audis in this space before but this one takes the cake. First, this is clearly the most expensive pink ringer we've yet to see and second, god love 'em, it appears to have a custom pink leather interior.

      So what would pink on pink ...
    9. Slammed Audi RS 6 Avant Featured on Klutch



      Okay, the fact that the owner may have used 21-inch Mercedes-Benz AMG wheels or slammed the car to swallow up the tops of any rubber may be controversial but we're guessing the overall effect is less so. We've just found shots of this cool and very modified RS 6 Avant photographed by our friend Joachim Naess and featured on Klutch Online. The car hails from France, which is impressive as we hear their ...
    10. Random Shot: Audi TT-R DTM Racer in Wind Tunnel Testing



      The IEDEI blog that came onto our radar a few months back when it broke the story of a Canadian MTM distributor looking to import new RS 6s stateside has run another cool story... well... photo. No background is provided but the blog's 'foto of the day' (above) appears to be a shot from Audi or Abt Sportsline. The car is a Mk1 TT coupe in aerodynamic development for the DTM series. The TT-R was only raced during the 2003 ...
