    1. 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 ...
    2. 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.

    3. 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 ...
    4. 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 ...
    5. 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 ...
    6. 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 ...
    7. Baltimore Sun Confirms American Le Mans Part of August 2011 Street Course IndyCar Race Deal



      Back in May we reported on Baltimore, Maryland's approval of a street course race by the IndyCar series planned for August 2011. Set to split the distance between Baltimore's Inner Harbor and Camden Yards where the Baltimore Orioles baseball team calls home, the event had ...
    8. Sports & Exotic Car Magazine Features Sport quattro, Quotes Fourtitude



      You may or may not remember last spring when Audi of America was kind enough to loan us their 1985 Sport quattro along with a few other cars and product planner Carter Balkcom in an effort to further augment the 2010 Carlisle Import Auto Show and its ever-growing Audi enthusiast group. ...
    9. Video: UK Tuner's Audi TT RS Manages 0-60 MPH in 3.55 Sec & 12.09 Quarter Mile at GTI International



      We've run photos of this particular signal green TT RS in the past. Owned by UK tuning firm TTS Roadsport, the car features ECU upgrade and exhaust. That's a conservative list of mods but worth noting when you pair it with the fact that they managed 3.55 seconds 0-60 mph and a 12.09 quarter mile at this year's GTI International.

      The below video, circulating around TT discussion forums for a while ...
    10. Video: Nothing Sticks like a quattro. Audi Marketing at the Toronto Film Festival



      Thanks to ForgeMotorsport on Twitter we've found this cool video from Audi Canada showing some spontaneous marketing they did at the Toronto film festival. Through creative use of a truck load of Minichamps model cars and some magnets Audi was able to take over the nearby streets in one very different way.
