    1. Audi 'Truth in Motion' Star and Olympic Gold Medalist Lindsey Vonn Nabs ESPY Award for Best Female Athlete



      To echo Matthew Broderick from Biloxi Blues this summer is Africa hot, Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot. So okay, maybe skiing isn't the first thing that comes to mind when thinking hot... at least until maybe you consider US Ski Team ace and Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.

      In case you missed it, Lindsey starred in Audi's 'Truth in Motion' documentary ...

    3. Accessories Program Revealed for Audi A7



      While in Munich last week for Audi's A7 reveal we picked up a copy of the sales literature for the car. S-line photos from the book have been making their rounds since the day after the reveal but we've found a few additional interesting shots toward the back of the book highlighting the Audi Accessories line for the car.

      There are just three shots and, as ...
    4. Audi TT RS Practically a Go for America Suggests Official AoA Petition + Our Own Intel with Projected Price



      Audi has launched a petition for American consumers to gauge reaction and measure demand for the 350 hp Audi TT RS. We've known Audi of America is VERY serious about adding this car to its lineup and has been considering it for a while and this new social media blast to try to gain a measure for the number of hand raisers is a very good sign. Even better is their next step in producing a few video shorts via the Audi of America ...
    5. 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 ...
    6. Find of the Year: OEM Consistent Audi RS 2 Coupe on Ebay Canada



      Okay, to be fair, this isn't the first RS2-converted Audi coupe we've ever seen on the market. However, this one stands out more than any other we can ever remember for one very good reason.... consistency. We've NEVER seen an Audi coupe built to essentially RS 2 replica standards as this one has.

      For those who don't know, the RS 2 was essentially an Audi S2 Avant massaged by Porsche ...
    7. Audi quattro Rally Concept Model Shown in Paris



      Perhaps not surprisingly, the Audi quattro Concept shown in Paris seems to have been the star of the show. With a longitudinally mounted version of the 5-cylinder turbo FSI engine from the Audi TT in a lightened and shortened A5/S5 derived chassis, the car certainly struck a cord in many who saw it there or lusted over photos online. Even more interesting then is this design model shown tucked away ...
    8. Spied: Next-Gen Audi A6 Spotted in American Southwest Nearly Undisguised



      Road & Track has run a story about the upcoming C7 Audi A6 along with some new spy photos shot during hot weather testing in the American Southwest. New A6 mules have been seen recently from Nurburgring to public roads but this is one of the first findings of the car on American soil and, while we're at it, essentially ...
    9. "The Sport quattro is Ugly." Ex-Audi Designer Peter Birtwhistle Makes Us Cry.



      Here's a headline you don't see every day. Audi Sport Quattro "is ugly” popped up on our daily news search over on AutoCar.co.uk. Seems the designer of the Audi homologation special and rally icon Peter Birtwhistle was a bit critical of the car in some comments made to the UK weekly ...
    10. Photography: New Studio Shots of Audi e-tron Spyder Concept Painted Red for Design Miami



      For those who followed Audi's presence at Design Miami this year you may have noticed this Audi e-tron Spyder painted in red. An e-tron Spyder Concept was first shown in Paris in September. That car was silver, so either Audi has built a second one or it has repainted the concept for its Miami showing. Either way, Audi has released a new set of studio PR shots of the car. Enjoy.
