    1. Heffner Performance Builds and Tests Twin Turbo, PPI-kitted Audi R8 at Miller Motorsports Park



      When we first met Jason Heffner down at APR headquarters last spring we were completely impressed. Rather laid back and unassuming, the guy is a bit of a sleeper when you consider he's the mastermind behind twin turbo cars such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Ford GT and of course the Audi R8. We've just run across a build thread from TeamSpeed along with video of one of Jason's most recent builds where he flew to Utah's Miller ...
    2. 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 ...

    4. 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 ...
    5. Video: Audi Sportscar Experience Latin America Tour Featured on Audi TV



      Earlier this summer we visited the Audi Sportscar Experience based at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma California. During our time there we sat down for a chat with the team at Emotive who puts on the American Audi Experience program and during that time they'd mentioned they were also now producing an Audi Driving Experience Latin America Tour for the South ...
    6. Audi Exclusive Sighting: R8, A5 and TT in Java Green



      Audiblog.nl is having a Java Green fest apparently, posting photos of several Audis painted in this metallic green hue. The collection includes the above R8, an A5 and a second-generation TT but be aware that the TT shot features a topless model and is NSFW.

      More after the jump.

    7. 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 ...
    8. 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 ...
    9. 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 ...
    10. SR Auto Group at It Again with Project Pur R8 'Phantom'



      We don't know what's in the water in British Columbia where SR Auto Group is located but we hope they keep drinking it up because the modified Audis this Canadian shop calls their own leave us speechless nearly every time. Case in point is this so-called 'Phantom' Audi R8.



      A mix of gloss and matte blacks ...
