    1. Find of the Day: Turbocharged GT... Not an R8 on Ebay



      When you think GT nowadays the brawny new R8 GT comes to mind, however the GT nomenclature dates back further than that albeit in a less exotic fashion. Exotic or not though, the Coupe GT of the 1980s has long been a favorite of Audi enthusiasts for its affordable price yet shape (if not performance) quite close to the iconic ur quattro.

      Sold only in front-wheel drive and with a normally-aspirated ...
    2. On Location: Audi Forum Neckarsulm, Signal Green TT RS, Platinum R8 Spyder, RS 3 and More



      Over the next few days we've got some On Location galleries to share from our recent pre-Geneva trip to Audi's factory in Neckarsulm and to the Lamborghini factory in Sant Agata Bolognese. First up is our gallery from the Audi Forum Neckarsulm.

      As those familiar will know, the Audi Forum at the company's Neckarsulm facility features a delivery ...
    3. Endurance-Crea Takes Another Stab at 2011 Audi R18 Livery



      Earlier this week we posted an image by Endurance-Crea envisioning this year's Audi R18 race livery. Up until now the only R18s we've seen have been in Audi Sport's typical new car testing paint scheme or exposed carbon fiber and/or matte black. To see the real race colors, you'll have to wait until Audi arrives with their car in Le Mans or perhaps even sooner during the official Le Mans ...
    4. On Location: Audi RS 3 Sportback at A50 in Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      A reader visiting the Audi Forum Ingolstadt this week was kind enough to shoot and share these photos of an RS 3 Sportback. Parked in front of Building A50 where the board members usually park their rides, this RS 3 appears to be Misano Red with black optics and with an Audi Exclusive interior. Our source tells us the interior is two-tone magnolia ...
    5. Find of the Day: DKW Munga in Need of Work on Ebay



      We've featured DKW Mungas here before though usually in better condition. This 60s and 70s era army Jeep was built by Auto Union subsidiary DKW for the German military for years and this one found its way back to California at some point. This one, of course, needs a lot of work but the price is right if you're looking to build a project car around one.

      Here's the description from ebay.
      ...
    6. Audi S6 Spy Photos over at WorldCarFans



      A test mule of the Audi S6 was spotted this week in Germany (looks like Ingolstadt) and a large set of photos of the car have been published over on WorldCarFans. From the outside this car looks largely like a blacked out A6 S-line, though it wears last-generation S-car wheels and, more importantly, quad exhausts.

      As most readers on here probably already know, the new S6 will be powered by ...

      Audi AG is in the middle of their RS 3 media launch in Monte Carlo this week and as a result there's been a big release of photos from the event. Among the shots are both a Misano Red and a Suzuka Grey example shot in various locations around Monte Carlo. Many shots have been added to each section of our RS 3 gallery (Exterior, Interior and Technical). Check them out after the ...

    9. New Snowpocalypse Themed Commercial Starring R8 from Audi of America Emphasizes Benefits of quattro



      I got an email a few weeks ago from a source at Audi looking for footage of an Audi, preferably an R8, in the snow. The only thing like that I could think of was the the video review Ezra Dyer had done about the R8 V10 for the New York times. Turns out Audi had already zeroed in on ...
    10. In Brief: Hans Juergen Abt of Abt Sportsline Sits Down for Chat at 2011 Geneva Motor Show



      Anyone keeping track of Audiís DTM efforts will immediately recognize one very regular face in the Geneva Motor Show stand of Abt Sportsline. One of the brothers behind the fabled Audi tuning brand, Hans Juergen Abt is also the Team Director of Audi Sportís Team Abt Sportsline. No surprise, Hans Juergen was on hand at Geneva to help launch ...
