    1. Video + MP3: Audi and Basement Jaxx Team for New A7 Commercial Spot in Europe



      We've just stumbled across Audi's latest A7 ad spot over on Prefixmag.com. The basic premise is an evolving CGI rorschach type of theme that evolves from brain eventually to the A7, emphasizing perhaps some of the thought that went behind the A7. It's visually very cool but even cooler because the soundtrack that goes with it ...
    2. 1999 Audi R8C for rFactor2 from Team RMT



      As driving sims go, the rFactor franchise hasn't quite garnered the notoriety of Gran Turismo or Forza. It's not on a console and that's likely the reason because in the PC-based online gaming community there is a large and very rabid following for the racing platform. One reason, we're told, is its realism and another must certainly be its open nature. Unlike GT or Forza where you might be able to decorate the livery of a ...
    3. Choice Gear: Gearbox Unobtainium Strap Edition Watch from Oakley



      Oakley sunglasses have long been preferred sunglasses of choice by Audi Sport and also in our offices and while we've lusted after many of their shades we've never really been won over by their timepieces. In our opinion their often more organic-looking design didn't translate well to the wrist. However, Oakley's new Gearbox Unobtainium watch is by no means organic and very cool. We've just found ...
    4. Choice Gear(s): Two Radio Shack Audi quattro Rally Cars, 1 Pristine on Ebay, 1 Not So Pristine on 4T



      If you were a kid when the Audi ur quattro was ripping up the rally scene then you likely remember a day when the toy designers at Radio Shack were a bit more worldly - pushing R/C cars like the Martini Porsche 935 or Audi's own quattro... well before the monster truck cheese peddled today. If you remember those days and care to revisit them, we've found just the thing(s).

      ...
    5. Choice Gear: Pirelli PZero Disk_O



      Given the subject matter of the new Disk_O chronograph, you'd think it would have come from a manufacturer such as Brembo given its casing made to look like a cross-drilled brake rotor complete with accenting caliper. Nope. Instead the piece comes from Pirelli as one of the latest entrants in the brand's PZero line of wearable goods. If you're into automotive-themed ...
    6. Choice Gear: Scalextric Top Gear Powerlaps Racing Set



      Check out the latest slot car racing set from Scalextric, an homage to Top Gear that replicates (to a degree) the BBC show's test track including curves with names like Gambon and Hammerhead printed on the track pieces. Looks cool and a great add to our 2010 Gift Guide watch list we've got going.

      So why not wait until after Thanksgiving and run this with the gift guide? Griot's Garage, stocking the set ...
    7. Choice Gear: iPad Users Take Note. British Magazine Invasion on Zinio including EVO, Top Gear and Octane



      Ever since purchasing an iPad earlier this year we've been quickly weening out our subscriptions to print magazines. Big piles of magazines were cool to a point but get old after a while, especially when traveling. Some magazines have opted for stand-alone apps and such but one of our single most used iPad apps is that of Zinio. Until Steve Jobs wakes up and adds a magazine newsstand of his own to iTunes we're more than happy to ...
    8. Choice Gear: 2011 quattro Fever Calendar Now Available for Audi Rally Enthusiasts


      Announcing a unique and very special gift for any Audi rally enthusiast. Fourtitude European editor David Corfield had a former life as a rally photographer for the Audi Sport UK team in the 1980s, and here, for the first time is a calendar with a selection of previously unpublished images from his days with the team. Showing all evolutions of quattro, from A1 through to S1 plus 200 (Group A), the calendar is a very special reminder ...
    9. Choice Gear: WRC Chronorally Watch from Edox



      We'll admit it. We have a bit of a watch fetish here at Fourtitude and we're guessing many of our readers do too. If interest in great design and interesting technology drive your passion for Audi automobiles then most likely this carries over to other elements in your life... perhaps timepieces. We're also interested in subtle pieces of flair in our wardrobe and lifestyle, ...
    10. Choice Gear: Build Your Own Audi Ur quattro with Printer & Cardboard



      We've stumbled across a little classic Audi love over on Tinypic.com in the form of an Audi ur quattro template. A red original quattro such as this one has been tearing up the screens in the BBC series Ashes to Ashes and that car apparently inspired this paper cutout template.

      The theory is simple.

      1. Go to TinyPic and download the highest resolution version of the car.
      2. Print with color printer ...
