    1. Rendered Speculation: Audi A3 allroad Cool But Unlikely



      You might remember Theophilus Chin from previous render posts we've made. Chin posts his work on his blog (linked below) and even publishes some in major magazines. One of his latest creations is the above very mildly facelifted 2011 A3 Sportback converted to theoretical allroad spec.

      So what do we think?
      It's a cool idea of an interesting production variant of the A3. However, the A3 ...
    2. Video: DIY's Garage Mahal Makes Over Car & Driver Garage + Audi Content



      Who doesn't love a cool garage makeover, so when Car & Driver posted time lapse video of the DIY Network's Garage Mahal series hosted by Bill Goldburg making over their own staff garage we clicked with interest. We weren't disappointed as we watched them install everything from car-bodied couches to cabinets and a lift. Even better, the first car that seems to grace the space is an Audi R8. ...
    3. On Market: 2008 Audi S4 with DTM Appearance Package & Only 405 Miles on Ebay



      The B7 S4 has always been one of our favorite S-cars and we've just found one very nice example on Ebay. A 2008 this car features only 405 miles and features the rare sport appearance package that used components from the European A4 DTM model complete with real carbon fiber accents. The carbon looks particularly good compared with the car's dark grey paint.

    5. Video: Remarkable Footage of Pair of Audi A4s Used as Getaway in Armored Car Heist



      It's been a while since our last Audi as Getaway Car post but we've found plenty reason to restart the series today with this remarkable footage of two B7 A4s used in a heist near Marseilles France. According to reports the cars were stolen and used by a crew of ten armed gunmen to steal 2.1M Euros from a Loomis Cash Transit that also appears on camera and in flames. The crew would later set fire to the two Audis as well once ...
    6. Audi DTM Star Mattias Ekstrom Rumored to Race Red Bull Toyota in NASCAR Round at Sonoma



      We knew Red-Bull sponsored Mattias has been testing Red Bull Racing's Toyota NEXTEL Cup Car last week at VIR and that Mattias is a whiz with tin topped racers, so maybe we weren't that surprised when we heard rumor that it took him little over an hour to get up to speed in the much heavier Toyota Cup Car. However, we were a bit more surprised to read today on Red Bull Racing's ...
    7. Audi S8 D4-Generation Render Likely VERY Close to Real Thing



      When it comes to rendering future Audi product, we're always most fond of future S-cars. Why? Audi's consistency in design of their S-car range makes creation of renders easy to do providing you pay attention to the cues. Last time around, in the case of the S8, we'd been tipped about when the car would bow and we'd known the then-new S design grille was grey with vertical chrome struts and the then-new wheel looked much like ...
    8. Rendered: Production e-tron or e-R8 by Designer Nuno Silva



      We found a collection of renderings over at Audiblog.nl by Portuguese artist Nuno Silva. Effectively Silva imagineered what a production e-tron might look like by adding more production believable components such as wheels, grille and rearview mirrors to e-tron imagery.



      So what do we think?
      The images are purely from Silva's ...
