    2. B8 Audi RS 4 Project Could Be Dead Says Car & Driver Insider



      Car & Driver's resident German insider Jens Meiners has published his monthly report from the continent and we're concerned about one of his assertions. If Meiners' assertion is correct, the new B8 RS 4 program has been killed in the wake of Audi's decision to build a next-generation RS 6. It's assumed the RS 6 will be powered by a more potent ...
    3. Bloomberg Story Offers Industry Analyst Take on Audi and Volkswagen Group's Upcoming MQB Architecture



      Just one year after the debut of the A3 Concept that revealed Audi's plans for an A3 sedan, Ingolstadt will launch the first production version (a 3-door) of the all-new A3, again at the Geneva Motor ...
    4. Find of the Day: Bonkers 570-hp B5 RS 4 Build on Ebay



      A wise man once told me to "Buy it Built". You'll earn a hell of a lot of respect and pride when you build your car from the ground up but you'll save a hell of a lot of cash if you buy it built. Often built cars are a total bargain, though we're sure whether this Bonkers B5 RS 4 build qualifies will be hotly debated. What we're pretty sure won't be ...
    5. Audi RS 5 Joins the Forza 4 Lineup in Latest January Download Pack Paired



      Forza fans take note, the contents of the latest download pack have been announced and the Audi RS 5 is now in the mix. Yes, you could already add the RS 5 front and rear fascias if you wanted the quattro GmbH stealth test mule look but this one's the full flared production model... alas pre-facelift though. Also of interest to Audi group fans is the West Lamborghini Gallardo GT race ...
    6. Audio: The Truth in 24 Interviews



      Back in October, Audi UK hosted a showing of Truth in 24 at the Audi quattro rooms in London, an event not to be missed with celebrity guests that included drivers Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish, as well as engineers Leena Gade and Howden Haynes. On hand at the event was Radio Le Mans' John Hindhaugh who interviewed each of the four and a few ...
    7. Virtual Holiday Mantel: Have an ultra Cool Yule from Your Friends at Fourtitude



      Little known fact: Christmas trees are a German tradition and the first documented example in the USA was just down the road from Fourtitude's Pennsylvania offices thanks to a large local German population. Every June there's also a large German population in Le Mans as well, and they've got their own winning tradition. Whatever your nationality and whatever your tradition, those of us here at Fourtitude ...
    8. Virtual Holiday Mantel 2011: The Motherload. Everyone and their Audi-Driving Brother



      The below mix of holiday e-cards you are about to see are the result of a perfect storm. Now, the clouds aren't dumping a record wintery mix on our quattro in the parking lot, but a gargantuan number of virtual holiday well-wishing in our in-box and on Facebook combined with a holiday spirited denial of service attack on our forums has had me holding off until just now to post this. That's all past, so see above ...
    9. C4 Audi S4 Goes 242 MPH in Salt Flats Run at SpeedWeek



      When you think of Audis that would give a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport a run for its top speed money, an early 90's C4 might not be on the top of your list. Likely though, oldschool Audi performance buffs would not be so surprised. That original I5 turbo that powered Audi's rally, Trans-Am and IMSA GTO dominance in the 80s and 90s saw its last-of-breed production in the big-although-aerodynamic ...
    10. Possible Design Leak: Is This The New Audi TT in Photo from Audi Design Center?



      Okay, we'll admit we may be making something out of nothing here but you never know and what you see here is intriguing enough that we thought we should point it out. We've just published the news story about Wolfgang Egger taking over as Audi brand design chief and noticed Audi AG published a new portrait of the designer to go with the text. Standard practice on our staff is to look closely in the background of any photos coming ...
