      In a surprise late season move, Audi has pulled the wraps off of a customer race program centered around its aluminum TT RS sports coupe. Built to VLN SP 4T specs, the car will do several more races in that series in the hands of Raeoder Motorsport who has some experience in VLN and at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring with TT and A3-based racers.

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

    5. 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 ...
    6. AutoCar Blogger Identifies How Auto Design Got So Boxy with Analysis of Audi 50



      Anyone familiar with the late 70s and early 80s designs coming from Audi and other manufacturers at the time would not be surprised to hear the word "boxy" used as a descriptor. At a certain point in the early to mid 1970s, styling houses like Bertone (believed involved in the design of the Audi 50) and Giugiaro (responsible for the ...
    7. KTM X-Bow a Go for USA, Classified as Kit Car



      The KTM X-bow (pronounced cross-bow) has been on our Audi-tuned radar since the first few rumors of the project, then suggested as a joint-venture with Ingolstadt, rumbled out of the rumormill. Much has changed since that time. The X-bow was revealed, began production, has diversified into many states of tunes and models, etc. Still, the ultra-light windscreen-less ...

    8. Next-Gen Audi A3 3-door Rendered by Theophilus Chin



      Photo render artist Theophilus Chin has published another Audi creation in the form of a next-generation S3 3-door. Based on the A3 Concept shown last month in Geneva, Chin's S3 does many things he thinks the S3 will do. Chin deftly stayed consistent with Audi design, changing the doors, grille and other details to production units.

      So What Do We Think?
      The car is very consistent with ...
    9. On Location: Glacier White 2012 Audi A4 + Other Color News from Audi



      We recently visited Audi of America headquarters, coaxed into a visit by news that there was a German spec Audi A4 that had been built as a 2012 package mockup. And while the spec (Premium Plus, S-line bodywork and those 5-spoke wheels) may still be subject to change the most significant difference we saw on the car was its Glacier White Paint that was described ...
    10. Choice Gear: Carbon Fiber Business Cards



      Looking for something to set you apart from every other guy dropping a card in the free lunch jar at Chipotle or when exchanging info with top executives? Look no further than this card made from real carbon fiber by Carbon Fiber Designs. Pricing hasn't yet been announced but we're guessing it'll be a bit more than the typical card stock fast track special from Office Max.
