    3. Find of the Day: 1957 Audi / DKW Munga Beach Buggy on Crack



      Here's something you don't see every day. Take one DKW Munga, built by Auto Union during the 50s primarily for military use. Paint it yellow, fit it with mudder tires and rally lights, swap in an aircooled VW boxer four and you have one very unique beach buggy. We've just found this beast for sale in Fort Lauderdale, FL and listed on Ebay.

      Bidding is only at about $3K but there is a reserve so we've emailed the owner ...
    4. Gallery Update: 24 Hours of Nurburgring Gallery Grows Including R8 GT Shots



      Frequent Fourtitude contributor John Stahmann surprised us with a wide selection of photos from the 24 Hours of Nurburgring including some great detail shots of the new R8 GT. Seems John was in the general neighborhood of the Nurburgring and stopped by to watch the race, shooting hundreds of photos at the event that he's been kind enough to share ...
    5. The Bachelorette Drives a Black Audi Cabriolet



      Apparently ABC's latest Bachelorette drives a black Audi cabriolet... at least in the show and perhaps in real life. Yeah, we missed it, but our news search this morning caught a piece on the National Ledger website pointed out the product placement that isn't product placement apparently.

      According to the ledger it's a "black Audi convertible" but since we didn't ...
    6. Audi and EVO Magazine Pair for Awesome (AND FREE) Le Mans iPhone App



      EVO Magazine has created a new Audi Guide to Le Mans app for iPhone and it would appear it's got Audi's backing based on the brand's prominent placement with ads, reviews, etc. App features latest news, driver bios, team info, and news all broken down by either Audi focused or general (so it's not just for Audi enthusiasts). Interestingly, Team Kolles and their R10 TDIs fall under 'other'. Other features include Audi road test ...
    7. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Smurfy RS 6 Sedan



      This very, very blue Audi RS 6 just turned up on Twitter this week. We found it posted over on the Quattroholic fan page on Twitter and people there guess that it is Lamborghini's Blu Cepheus. We've always heard Audi Exclusive doesn't like to encroach on Lambo's pallet but with IN (for Ingolstadt) tags we're suspecting this likely Audi Executive could order what he wants. Funny too that the car is driving past ...
    8. Audi A1 "The Next Big Thing" - Episode 4 Starring Justin Timberlake and Dania Ramirez



      Audi has released the latest episode of their 'The Next Big Thing' webisode series starring Justin Timberlake and Dania Ramirez.

    9. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow TT 3.2 S-line with Manual Transmission!



      While spending the weekend in Audi of America's German market TTRS and rowing gears on its manual transmission, we couldn't help but wondering why more manual transmission TTs never made it to the USA. While the first-gen TT made due ONLY manual transmissions for most of its years, the second-gen car is practically the opposite with DSG S-tronic being the only choice almost across the board. I say 'almost' ...
    10. Audi R8 with Gulf Color Scheme Turns up at Audi AG Headquarters (A50)



      We've written about the place before if not the car. Just below building A50 on the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is where certain Audi AG board members like to park. Short of seeing them actually exiting the car we're never exactly sure which car belongs to whom but there are some obvious elements of taste that we can identify. Audi AG boss Rupert Stadler likes metallic whites while development board member and long proven gearhead ...
