    1. Rupert Stadler Confirms Audi Ur e-tron to be Built in Neckarsulm



      Audi's "e" development wing set with the task of planning electric mobility for the four rings may be based in Ingolstadt but it appears production of their first product, known simply as "e-tron" will go to Neckarsulm. Audi has never made a secret that it intends to build ...
    2. Video: Audi Le Mans Episode 1 with English Translation



      We ran a link to this video last week when Audi TV published it on YouTube but now an English translation has surfaced from Audi of America and given most of our readership is English-speaking we've decided to re-post. Watch it below.

    3. Audi A1 Driving Impressions from Car & Driver Magazine


      Car & Driver European contributor Jens Meiners has published a driving review of the A1 following its launch with the European press last week. We're always impressed with Meiners' grasp of the Audi brand and accuracy in Audi intel on future product so we read the piece with interest.

      The story's got ...
    4. Find of the Day: 1989 Hurley Haywood #44 Audi 200 TRANS AM Racecar



      Via Hemmings Motor News, the availability of Hurley Haywood's #44 1989 Audi 200 quattro TRANS AM car is making the rounds on blogs and news outlets today. The car is currently owned by The Auto Collections of Las Vegas. Apparently the car was purchased directly from Audi Sport and it's actually been on sale (and on display) at The Auto Collection showroom/museum at the Imperial ...
    5. 24 Hours of Le Mans: Vide Overload Including Interviews, Scrutineering & More



      We're readying our final recap of Le Mans and that process includes producing a lot of content we simply didn't have time to publish in the heat of the race (though you may have seen some of this via Audi USA social media outlets as we were also contributing to them). Below are several videos we've just recently uploaded to YouTube posted in reverse chronological ...
    6. More Spy Photos of Production Audi RS 3 Reveal Odd New Mechanical Roof Spoiler?



      We've just finished making our post about the RS 3 and now found another set of photos on the same CarSpyShots.com website. This groups of shots show an impressively large rear spoiler seemingly angled the wrong way to create drag. CarSpyShots has two theories that the piece is either one very different mechanical spoiler design or a piece that is about to fall off.

      Frankly, it ...
    7. Near-Production Audi RS 3 Mule Testing at Nurburgring Undisguised



      The Audi A3 chassis may be entering its final stages of production ahead of a switch to MQB but that's not stopping Audi from going full on with an RS 3 version of the car. We've seen modified S3-bodied mules believed to be RS 3 test cars running at the ring before but the latest shots like the one above from CarSpyPhotos.com show a car a lot closer to production trim.

      The most noticeable ...
    8. Hot or Not? Clear LED Taillights for Audi B7 A4/S4/RS 4



      Say the words "clear" and "LED" in the same sentence and the name "Altezza" rather uncomfortably resonates in my head. These two words make for preconceived notions of cheesiness but the clear-ish taillights on the R8 GT have shown me that clear doesn't necessarily have to be of the cheese variety. So when I flipped open the latest issue of Audi Driver magazine and spotted these taillights from UK Audi Tuning shop BM Town, I wasn't ...
    9. Impressive Audi RS 4 Sedan (B8) Renders from CarSpyShots



      We've found (via http://www.audiblog.nl) two new renders of the next-generation B8 RS 4 in sedan form. The shots were originally posted in a thread over at CarSpyShots (http://www.carspyshots.net) and are quite convincing but obviously renders.

      Our own intel tells us RS 4 will be Avant only. The business model for the last B7 RS 4 sedan included the USA as part of the business case and the existing ...
    10. Leavenworth Drive Photo Gallery from QuattroWorld


      Northwest European's annual charity drive to Leavenworth took place this past weekend. Quattroworld editors are local to the event and were kind enough to post a gallery focused on Audis attending the event.
