    1. 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 ...
    2. Spied: Possible Audi S1 Mule Out Testing



      We're not certain but we suspect the spy photographers who nabbed this Ingolstadt plated A1 running big wheels may be correct that it is an S1 test mule. Few details are confirmed about the upcoming S-version making us suspect most of the rumors around the car are just that but most suggest a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-banger.

      Will it have quattro? If it doesn't it'll be the first S-car ...
    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. 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 ...
    6. 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. ...
    7. 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, ...
    8. Audi S1 and S8 Set for Paris Says Auto Motor und Sport. No Mention of S7.



      German automotive magazine Auto Motor und Sport published their own Paris preview and in that suggest that Audi plans to pull the wraps off of a new S1 and S8, S-car versions of the all-new A1 and A8. Interestingly, A,M und S makes no reference of an S7 that was suggested by a source of ours at Audi just last ...
    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. Supposed Audi RS 3 Details Surface from British Dealership Source Including Word of Paris Debut



      We're not sure what to make of this latest bit of intel we've come across from GermanCarBlog said to have come from a London-based dealership source. We've created the render above to go along with this story, adding known RS design cues as seen on production cars or RS 3 test mules in order to help readers envision the final product.

      Here's a quick rundown of intel from GCB.

      *Set for Paris debut ...
