    1. On Market: 2008 Audi S4 with DTM Appearance Package & Only 405 Miles on Ebay



      The B7 S4 has always been one of our favorite S-cars and we've just found one very nice example on Ebay. A 2008 this car features only 405 miles and features the rare sport appearance package that used components from the European A4 DTM model complete with real carbon fiber accents. The carbon looks particularly good compared with the car's dark grey paint.

      More after the jump.

    2. Audi A7 Photos Leak Two Days Ahead of Munich Reveal



      It just goes to show, a secret is only a secret until you tell someone. We're guessing some embargo photos went out to some outlet or another who managed to let these shots of the A7 slip out into the public domain about two days ahead of schedule. Why? The shots are legitimate from what we can tell and look like PR shots, while the selection is still just a few pics that ...
    3. Project TTS:SF - APR Stage 3



      words: Jason Crouch
      photos: Sa’ Jamil Hogan & Jason Crouch


      In our previous installment we flashed the ECU of our Audi TTS with that old APR magic to Stage 1. We also became the first mag-ride equipped Audi in North America to utilize the new KW Suspension “Elektronics kit”, defeating the CEL’s that usually go along with that while creating a beautifully handling and properly stance’d MK2 TT. This time ...
    4. Audi R4 or Whatever It Is May Not Be e-tron According to More Photos from Ski Jump Photo Shoot



      We've just been passed these photos of that mystery Audi on location at that ski jump photo shoot. Originally rumored to be an R4 e-tron concept car we're not so sure that's true anymore... at least the e-tron part. These new detail shots posted in our forums reveal details inconsistent with an electric e-tron concept model including big open alloys, large disc brakes and alloy exhaust tips.

      Thanks R5T and ...
    5. Audi R8 LMS Will Not Contest 2011 American Le Mans GTC Class. Okay LMS. How About a US GT3 Series?



      No Audi R8 for GTC
      One very disappointing comment made by ALMS series President Scott Atherton in his State of the Series address was on 2011 plans for the GTC class. Close to GT3 specs in which the R8 LMS already competes in Europe, the GTC class will soldier on with 2010 and 2011 Carrera Cup spec Porsche 911s and be limited to a field of 10.

      Nothing against the Porsches ...

    7. Spied: Next-Generation Audi A6 Virtually Undisguised



      Somehow we missed this round of spy photos last week but two readers independently sent us links to sites publishing them including Spyshots.nl and Car & Driver. We already know quite a bit about the new A6, that it will be based on a version of the Audi MLB architecture and is close in size to the A7. Interestingly though, this near undisguised shot shows more of a rounded A4-ish nose than the A8 or especially ...
    8. Say It Ain't So! BBS Files for Bankruptcy (Again).



      BBS is a staple. An icon. If you're into European cars and you're not aware of BBS wheels then you're not really into European cars. The German wheel manufacturer may not be the cheapest but it has represented high quality performance wheels for decades often with its signature mesh-style designs most iconically represented by the ...
    9. Audi R18 and R15 plus Hit Kick Asphault in Sebring Test



      Rumors have been floating around that Audi Sport was headed for Florida for some early testing ahead of the ILMC season opener at Sebring. Now, thanks to Floridian photographer James Boone, we can pull this story out of the rumor category. Audi Sport was on hand today at Sebring along with a few other teams doing their first (semi) public shakedowns of both last year's R15 plus and two Audi R18s marked #1 and #2.

    10. New York Owner of Ice-Encased Audi A3 Tells His Tale



      Remember ice-encased Audi A3 making like Han Solo Empire Strikes Back Edition while its owner watched the NY Jets lose the playoffs? Seems the story of Peter Helfer, or rather his unfortunate Audi, made the rounds of the news cycle world wide back in January.... from the NBC nightly news to every car blog this side of Siberia.

      At the time Manhattan native Peter Helfer stayed ...
