    2. 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. ...
    3. Choice Gear: WRC Chronorally Watch from Edox



      We'll admit it. We have a bit of a watch fetish here at Fourtitude and we're guessing many of our readers do too. If interest in great design and interesting technology drive your passion for Audi automobiles then most likely this carries over to other elements in your life... perhaps timepieces. We're also interested in subtle pieces of flair in our wardrobe and lifestyle, ...
    4. 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 ...
    5. 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.

    6. 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 ...
    7. 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 ...
    8. Choice Gear: Pirelli PZero Disk_O



      Given the subject matter of the new Disk_O chronograph, you'd think it would have come from a manufacturer such as Brembo given its casing made to look like a cross-drilled brake rotor complete with accenting caliper. Nope. Instead the piece comes from Pirelli as one of the latest entrants in the brand's PZero line of wearable goods. If you're into automotive-themed ...
    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 ...
