    1. Corrado RS, Chapter 1: The Vision Takes Shape

      by , 01-19-2012 at 05:08 PM (Building a Corrado "RS")
      Driving like a banshee is great. It's fun, it's exhilarating, it's therapeutic, it gets your senses working overtime. Channel your anger through the steering wheel of your “RS” car, and the combination of burnt fuel, crackling exhaust, and melting rubber combine to calm you better than any scented candle on the market. But it's all for naught if you begin to sweat profusely at the first sign of traffic because you binned A/C in search of a modicum of extra power. It's all for naught if you lose ...
    2. Corrado RS, Introduction

      by , 01-19-2012 at 04:50 PM (Building a Corrado "RS")
      The best cars in the world are not your generic grocery getters. They aren't the Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys that run forever with barely an oil change, rarely (if ever) leaving you stranded, and lulling you to sleep on the highway. No, the best cars in the world are the ones that slap cartoonish grins on your face. They are so raw and unapologetic about their purpose that they make you bow before their race-like suspension and impractical interiors. Their sole purpose is to make driving fun... ...

    3. Two Audi R18 TDIs star in Award-Winning Photo from Motorsport.com's Eric Gilbert



      Congratulations are in order for our friend Eric Gilbert from Motorsport.com who's won the The Sarthe Endurance Photo competition with this beautiful shot of two Audi R18s slicing through the quiet French countryside during pre-race practice last June. Eric headed out to a spot between Mulsanne and Indianapolis in the early morning of race day to nab the shot, one that took first ...
    4. Congratulations to Former Audi DTM Driver Katherine Legge on Signing 2-Year Deal for IZOD IndyCar Series



      It's been more than a season since British-born Katherine Legge departed from her seat with the Audi Sport DTM squad and we've just got word that she's landed a new multi-year deal. Katherine had raced in IndyCar before so it may not be surprising that she'll be returning to the series now that it seems to have more momentum ...
    5. After the Party In Pictures: Abandoned Peugeot Paddock Garage Posted by Sebring Raceway



      To say Peugeot's exit from Le Mans and the WEC was abrupt is an understatement. As mentioned in the report surrounding the Lion's departure published yesterday, the move came so out of the blue that even Peugeot Sport may not have known as the team had planned a test of the new 908 HYbrid4 later this week at Sebring. That fact is further confirmed by a Twitter photo posted this morning by Sebring Raceway. The shot (above) ...
    6. Video(s): Projection Mapping the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A1



      For your viewing pleasure, we've come across some videos from the Russian design firm Radugadesign . Using a new process called projection mapping, the firm takes a 3-D shape and animates it. For instance, they can take a stationary Audi A5 Sportback, make it look like it's speeding down a road... ...
    7. Saab's Demise Could Spell End for Audi-Powered Spyker



      We've been watching from the sidelines as Saab has slowly imploded since its exit from GM ownership. Picked up and managed by the people who also owned the Audi-powered, British-built Dutch brand Spyker, Saab was unable to make a go of it alone or to pair up with a larger manufacturer for support. It seems the storied Swedish brand's days ...
    8. Via 4T: eGarage Features the 200 quattro Trans-Am



      Out to Infineon for a shoot on a Ferrari, the guys at eGarage found themselves in a bit of a pinch. The Ferrari's motor blew and was a no-show, but another car they found in the paddock fit the bill. Seems the boys from Eurospec were there with their 1988 Audi 200 quattro Trans-Am. This car marked a fantastic era of racing for Audi in America and perhaps a bit of a precursor to the whole downsizing ...
