    1. 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 ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. 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 ...
    5. 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 ...
    6. 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.

    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. More Audi RS 3 Photos, Content plus Interesting New Color-Match Wheels for Black Optics Package



      With the first images and details about the new RS 3 Sportback dropped on news outlets this morning, we headed on over to Audi's German market website to see if we could build our own virtual RS 3 in the configurator. Alas, the latest RS car hasn't yet been added to the German site's build-your-own section but that hasn't stopped Audi AG from rolling out a whole second set of ...
    10. "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 ...
