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
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
It’s that time of year again and Fourtitude is headed to Waterfest. Around this time of July the Volkswagen and Audi community heads to Englishtown, NJ to celebrate and those of us at VWvortex and Fourtitude are no different. To be sure, we’ve got a few of our own cool cars to show and we also have some other fun stuff to share as a way of saying thank you.
Why thank you? As you may know, it’s been a
It's been about a week since Audi's American chief Johan De Nysschen confirmed the much anticipated RS 5 for the American market by the summer of 2012 and fortunatley two magazines have already begun to consider the field. Certainly the car will be benchmarked against the BMW M3 and Americans will
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
Via the celebrity car blog (and Jalopnik's Matt Hardigree) we've just stumbled across this Sepang Blue R8 V10 with color matched wheels. The car purportedly belongs to Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips. See more about it after the jump.
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
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.
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
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.
