    1. 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 ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. "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 ...

    6. Excellent Audi R18 Technical Analysis from SPEED's Marshall Pruett



      As Audi's new R18 rapidly approached its unveiling last Friday this blog zeroed in on SPEED contributor Marshall Pruett. Pruett seemed more clued in than most in the general public or press about the car and relayed to our staff that he'd spent countless hours on the phone to Germany working on a technical analysis of the new car. Over the weekend Pruett published his story, rife with details Audi Sport ...
    7. Hair Dress This! BMW 1 Series M and Aston V8 Vantage both Slower Than Audi TT RS 'Round the 'Ring



      We just caught a VERY interesting headline today by our buddies over at Jalopnik. The story title reads "BMW 1 Series M Rounds Nürburgring Slower than Audi TT-RS". Okay Jalop, you have our attention.

      Of course BMW hasn't published a lap time for its new M-ified 1er but the guys at Gawker's ...
    8. Photography: New Studio Shots of Audi e-tron Spyder Concept Painted Red for Design Miami



      For those who followed Audi's presence at Design Miami this year you may have noticed this Audi e-tron Spyder painted in red. An e-tron Spyder Concept was first shown in Paris in September. That car was silver, so either Audi has built a second one or it has repainted the concept for its Miami showing. Either way, Audi has released a new set of studio PR shots of the car. Enjoy.

    9. B8 Audi RS 4 Dead But C7 RS 6 Coming Says Car & Driver German Correspondent Jens Meiners



      There are a couple of German journalists who've become quite prolific thanks to their usually accurate early reads on moves by the German manufacturers. We usually plug Georg Kacher as the Grand Poobah of that particular Water Buffalo club and C&D's Jens Meiners is definitely an honorary member. So when Jens filed a story over on caranddriver.com this ...
    10. Rendered Speculation: 2011 Audi R18 Race Livery Found on Facebook



      Audi may have pulled the wraps off of its 2011 Audi R18 racer weeks ago but we've only seen it thus far in exposed black carbon. Audi Sport typically doesn't reveal its new race liveries until the earliest race weekends, especially for a new car so we know that the black car we have all seen will eventually be painted and likely in the usual mix of silver, red, black, ...
