    1. Fire up the Xbox: Forza 3 Exotic Car Download Pack Includes Audi-Powered Gumpert Apollo & Spyker C8



      We'll be honest with our friends at Turn10 Studios. We've been busy. We've been busy with the day-to-day, the posting of Audi content, picking up the pieces when our forum software gets stuck in a legal quagmire or building out things like galleries for Fourtitude version 2.0 due soon. Yes, it's been a while since we even fired up the old Xbox and in that time maybe our FOURTITUDEoCOM storefront ...
    2. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow UrS6 on Ebay



      The last of and most potent of Audi's legendary 5-cylinder turbo sold in America was that of the original S6 a.k.a. ur S6. Production ceased in the back half of the 1990s but these sedans and avants maintain a cult following. While rare, it's not hard to find well-maintained and often-modded versions for sale online but one in Imola Yellow... that's a bit of a find.

      Given it's on Ebay we can't verify the condition ...
    3. Audi A1 competition kit, A Different Take



      With cars like the MINI firmly in their sites, Audi made a point of emphasizing owner customization from the outset when it began the design of its new micro-ringer A1. No surprise then when the seven custom versions of the A1 headlined Audi's presence at Worthersee this year - the one production version in the group the rally-inspired A1 competition kit. ...
    4. Audi S7 Mule Spied Testing & Engine Speculation is Wide



      When photos of a new Audi test mule go into circulation, you can be sure that many, many publications will run a story and a believed S7 prototype photographed in camo this week continues to prove that point.

      So what makes everyone assume this is an S7? The main clues are a larger and lower front fascia, ...
    5. Audi Driver: Jason Statham Sports an Audi S8. Would You Expect Otherwise of "The Transporter"?



      It's not really new news that actor Jason Statham drives an Audi or that said Audi happens to be an S8. You could have probably expected as much since the car enthusiast and actor has piloted the D3 generation Audi Q-ship in two of the three Transporter feature films as well as provided the narration for Audi's 'Truth in 24' documentary about Le Mans. We've published reports before of Statham and rumored exploits ...

    7. Choice Gear: Leather Pouch for Apple iPad



      If you're an iPad junky as we've quickly become then you have probably been yearning for a solution a bit more premium by which to package Apple's wundertablet when on the move. Yes, we broke down and bought the official iPad cover from Apple but its propensity to show dirt and stains and synthetic feel has left us wanting. In that vein we've just stumbled across this new cover from Saddleback leather. Yes, we'd prefer some ...
    8. Swedish Copper-Toned B7 A4 Featured in Eurotuner



      We've seen plenty of modded Audis in our day but one particular modded Audi featured this week on Eurotuner.com may take the cake as most unique. Hailing from Sweden, the owner has taken this highly modified B7 to controversial ground where we suspect there'll be few on the fence. The look is love it or hate it and regardless of which ...
    9. Audi RS 1 Render Found on AudiBlog.nl



      We know Audi is at least working on an S1 version of its new A1 hatch if not a full-blown RS 1. Still, that hasn't stopped the photoshoposphere from imagineering such a beast and we like what we see. We found this particular shot that uses many cues from the RS 5 PR photography over at AudiBlog.nl. Read more about it after the jump.

    10. Audi R8 GT Spyder Render by Jon Sibal



      Photoshop ace and Audi enthusiast Jon Sibal was inspired last week by the R8 Spyder starring in the new Iron Man 2 movie and also by the just-released R8 GT when he put together these renders of an R8 GT Spyder. Of course with the coupe just announced there's no real indicator yet that Audi might consider building such a beast but if Jon's renders are any indicator we hope that they do.
