    1. 200 Photos Added of 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Incl. Audi R8 GT & Silver Arrows



      You may remember last week's unveiling of the Audi R8 GT took place at the rather unique venue of the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique - a vintage event where the the return of two Auto Union Silver Arrows (a Type C and Type D with Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx at the wheel respectively) likely was just as significant to attendees as the GT's global launch. ...
    2. Audi R8 from Audi Exclusive with New D4 A8-Style Diamond Stitch Leather Seats



      One of the most notable improvements and assets of the new A8 is its benchmark setting interior. Among our favorite new styling cues of the new Audi executive class sedan are the optional diamond-stitched leather seats.

    6. Welcome to the New Forums

      To our readers -

      Our old discussion forum software became part of a lengthy legal battle and due to legal reasons, we had to cease using it. We would have normally allowed ourselves a lot more time to do this conversion in a way that would have given everyone more advanced notice and permitted proper testing and a slower pace to ensure a smoother transition.

      Why It's a Fake
