    1. Audi Sport's Le Mans Winning Engineer Leena Gade Catches up with MINI Rally Engineer Sister at Goodwood



      Having just won Le Mans, we were surprised no shots of Audi R18 chief engineer Leena Gade had filtered through from Imola. Then, we caught this story from the Telegraph and all was clear. Seems Leena attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend and managed to catch up with sister Teena whom she'd mentioned in our Le Mans video interview. Teena's the lead engineer on Kris Meeke's MINI WRC car, and the two managed a ...
    2. Photo Gallery: More Photos of the 2013 Audi A5 Added.



      Alongside those of the S5 (just posted) Audi has released even more photos of its newly improved A5 range including Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet. We've found this mix of photos available via Audi's German consumer website.

      For those who haven't yet read the official Audi press release yet, this is a mid generation 'product improvement' and one that sees ...
    3. Audi AG Issues iPhone, Android, iPad App Smackdown



      Know how those of us who aren't in Audi's home market of Europe always complain when we can't get the niche vehicles a home market can boast... like maybe that A5 3.0 TDI S-line Sportback you've always wanted... with manual transmission and sunroof delete?

    5. Find of the Day: 1961 DKW Formula Junior Racecar



      Vintage racecars with four-ring heritage aren't terribly common. Look back prior to the modern quattro era and it gets even harder to pick up something with any sort of racing pedigree. In as much, we were surprised to find a DKW-powered formula car on Ebay and hailing from a Philadelphia suburb no less.

      Granted, this car is $33,500, which will weed out tire kickers.

      Here's a rundown on the ...
    6. Extremely Clean C1 Audi 100 2-Door Featured on German 'Youngtimer' Website



      Be it in the traditional side of the enthusiast scene or the air-ride equipped 'stance' side of the scene, a pervading trend in modified cars are clean vintage cars with an OE+ look. Take for instance this '73 100 LS 2-door featured on German vintage car website Youngtimer Scene. The rarity of a C1 2-door, combined with stunning bodywork and restored vintage mesh-style racing wheels probably had you at "hello", but just in case ...
    7. Via 4T: Inside Line Pits A6 Versus BMW 5-Series. Guess Who Wins? (Spoiler Alert)



      InsideLine has pitted the all-new Audi A6 against its arch enemy, the BMW 5-series. Closely matched, the two cars are both the 6-cylinder with forced induction variants. The A6 is the 3.0 TFSI and the 5er is the 535 biturbo.

      We have to admit, that the A6 won was not so much of a surprise. Even the last-generation car beat the Bimmer in several recent Car Magazine tests. ...

    9. Does the Audi urban Concept Hint at Future Plans to Dust off NSU Brand for City Vehicles?



      We've stumbled across an interesting idea today that is making us sit up and take notice, partially because it's a very interesting concept and partially because we've wanted Audi to do this for years. As most read yesterday, Ingolstadt plans to show off a super light and super efficient city car dubbed 'Audi urban concept' ...
