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

    5. 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 ...
    6. Choice Gear: iPad Users Take Note. British Magazine Invasion on Zinio including EVO, Top Gear and Octane



      Ever since purchasing an iPad earlier this year we've been quickly weening out our subscriptions to print magazines. Big piles of magazines were cool to a point but get old after a while, especially when traveling. Some magazines have opted for stand-alone apps and such but one of our single most used iPad apps is that of Zinio. Until Steve Jobs wakes up and adds a magazine newsstand of his own to iTunes we're more than happy to ...
    7. Choice Gear: Scalextric Top Gear Powerlaps Racing Set



      Check out the latest slot car racing set from Scalextric, an homage to Top Gear that replicates (to a degree) the BBC show's test track including curves with names like Gambon and Hammerhead printed on the track pieces. Looks cool and a great add to our 2010 Gift Guide watch list we've got going.

      So why not wait until after Thanksgiving and run this with the gift guide? Griot's Garage, stocking the set ...
    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. 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 ...
    10. 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 ...
