    1. The Bachelorette Drives a Black Audi Cabriolet



      Apparently ABC's latest Bachelorette drives a black Audi cabriolet... at least in the show and perhaps in real life. Yeah, we missed it, but our news search this morning caught a piece on the National Ledger website pointed out the product placement that isn't product placement apparently.

      According to the ledger it's a "black Audi convertible" but since we didn't ...
    2. Audi and EVO Magazine Pair for Awesome (AND FREE) Le Mans iPhone App



      EVO Magazine has created a new Audi Guide to Le Mans app for iPhone and it would appear it's got Audi's backing based on the brand's prominent placement with ads, reviews, etc. App features latest news, driver bios, team info, and news all broken down by either Audi focused or general (so it's not just for Audi enthusiasts). Interestingly, Team Kolles and their R10 TDIs fall under 'other'. Other features include Audi road test ...
    3. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Smurfy RS 6 Sedan



      This very, very blue Audi RS 6 just turned up on Twitter this week. We found it posted over on the Quattroholic fan page on Twitter and people there guess that it is Lamborghini's Blu Cepheus. We've always heard Audi Exclusive doesn't like to encroach on Lambo's pallet but with IN (for Ingolstadt) tags we're suspecting this likely Audi Executive could order what he wants. Funny too that the car is driving past ...
    4. Audi A1 "The Next Big Thing" - Episode 4 Starring Justin Timberlake and Dania Ramirez



      Audi has released the latest episode of their 'The Next Big Thing' webisode series starring Justin Timberlake and Dania Ramirez. Watch it below along their latest behind the scenes documentary installment about Swedish rock band Torpedo and its single 'Accelerate' that is part of the series' soundtrack.



    5. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow TT 3.2 S-line with Manual Transmission!



      While spending the weekend in Audi of America's German market TTRS and rowing gears on its manual transmission, we couldn't help but wondering why more manual transmission TTs never made it to the USA. While the first-gen TT made due ONLY manual transmissions for most of its years, the second-gen car is practically the opposite with DSG S-tronic being the only choice almost across the board. I say 'almost' ...
    6. Audi R8 with Gulf Color Scheme Turns up at Audi AG Headquarters (A50)



      We've written about the place before if not the car. Just below building A50 on the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is where certain Audi AG board members like to park. Short of seeing them actually exiting the car we're never exactly sure which car belongs to whom but there are some obvious elements of taste that we can identify. Audi AG boss Rupert Stadler likes metallic whites while development board member and long proven gearhead ...
    7. Fire up the Xbox: Forza 3 Exotic Car Download Pack Includes Audi-Powered Gumpert Apollo & Spyker C8



      We'll be honest with our friends at Turn10 Studios. We've been busy. We've been busy with the day-to-day, the posting of Audi content, picking up the pieces when our forum software gets stuck in a legal quagmire or building out things like galleries for Fourtitude version 2.0 due soon. Yes, it's been a while since we even fired up the old Xbox and in that time maybe our FOURTITUDEoCOM storefront ...
    8. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow UrS6 on Ebay



      The last of and most potent of Audi's legendary 5-cylinder turbo sold in America was that of the original S6 a.k.a. ur S6. Production ceased in the back half of the 1990s but these sedans and avants maintain a cult following. While rare, it's not hard to find well-maintained and often-modded versions for sale online but one in Imola Yellow... that's a bit of a find.

      Given it's on Ebay we can't verify the condition ...
    9. Audi A1 competition kit, A Different Take



      With cars like the MINI firmly in their sites, Audi made a point of emphasizing owner customization from the outset when it began the design of its new micro-ringer A1. No surprise then when the seven custom versions of the A1 headlined Audi's presence at Worthersee this year - the one production version in the group the rally-inspired A1 competition kit. ...
    10. Audi S7 Mule Spied Testing & Engine Speculation is Wide



      When photos of a new Audi test mule go into circulation, you can be sure that many, many publications will run a story and a believed S7 prototype photographed in camo this week continues to prove that point.

      So what makes everyone assume this is an S7? The main clues are a larger and lower front fascia, ...
