    1. 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 ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. 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.

    4. 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 ...
    5. 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, ...
    6. Audi A8 Platform Will Underpin Bugatti Sedan Says Der Spiegel



      The German magazine Der Spiegel is reporting via its Spiegel Online website that the Bugatti Veyron will be discontinued in 2014 at which time the Volkswagen Group's most luxurious brand will shift to production of a 4-door sedan likely based on the Galibier (above and below). Interestingly, Spiegel is suggesting that the car will be based on the Audi A8 and that ...
    7. Kacher Details 2016 Audi A8, A9 coupe and roadster, New MSB Architecture, 3.0T FSI Biturbo and More



      The latest "Deep Dive" column over on Automobile Magazine's website is exemplary of what we've come to expect from German auto journalist Georg Kacher. The piece is long-looking... 2016 A8 long-looking, and includes information of an A9 coupe and roadster.

      It probably goes without saying here but we'll revisit... Kacher is wired into the management ...
    8. Scoop: Under Hood Shots of Audi quattro Concept Longitudinal 2.5T FSI



      One of the most surprising things about the Audi quattro Concept for those of us at Fourtitude is just how many readers emailed us with conspiracy theories about the car's engine placement. As no engine shots were out there following the car's debut in Paris and subsequent showing in LA, some thought Audi may have pulled a fast one "saying it was longitudinal ...
    9. Project TTS/SF: Audi Accessories Spoiler and Custom Silver Optics Package



      Words: Jason Crouch, Photography by Cole Kelly & Jason Crouch

      In our previous installment, we rolled down to the San Diego suburb of Vista, California to watch a new set of HRE wheels get built and fit along with a set of Goodyear Eagle F1’s to our project car.

      For this installment we’re going full circle in the ...
    10. Ullrich Comments, News is Made. Audi and F1 Rumors Continue.


      Funny thing about Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich. The illustrious chief of Audi Sport may not have the household name star power of some of his drivers but to those in the know his word carries even more importance. The rule of Ullrich speaking and many, many listening is somewhat E.F. Huttonesque and certainly one to cause headlines. And... Ullrich's not always the most chatty either. Imagine how things would be if the man had ...
