    1. Photo Gallery: Audi at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show



      We've just added a collection of photography from the 2011 Chicago Motor Show to our photo gallery section including photos of the new A6, A7 and TT RS. Chicago was the first time Audi chose to show the TT RS on its show stand and the car in question was a German-spec example built as closely to a US-spec car as one might do without fully modifying it to match.

      Expect US-spec ...
    2. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Titan Gray Audi RS 5 with Significant Interior Customization



      Our friends over at the German Audi blog QARSI.de have posted shots of a most interesting RS 5 shot in one of Audi's delivery centers. The car features Titan Gray exterior paint and, interestingly, very significant interior tailoring.

      Of course Audi Exclusive can do all sorts of custom work inside a car, from custom colored leather framed floormats to custom stitching or leather colors. This car ...
    3. Audi Q3 to Debut at AutoShanghai 2011 in April



      Ask around in the circles of the auto industry that project future growth and it seems pretty near unanimous that the next big thing in automotive niches will be the small SUV. If that's true then it's timely as countless number ...
    4. AutoCar Blogger Identifies How Auto Design Got So Boxy with Analysis of Audi 50



      Anyone familiar with the late 70s and early 80s designs coming from Audi and other manufacturers at the time would not be surprised to hear the word "boxy" used as a descriptor. At a certain point in the early to mid 1970s, styling houses like Bertone (believed involved in the design of the Audi 50) and Giugiaro (responsible for the ...
    5. Teaser Image Released of Gumpert Tornante, Power by Audi, Design by Touring Superleggera



      Back in January we posted news that Gumpert would team with Italian carrozzeria Touring Superleggera in the design of its second model to be dubbed Tornante. At the time the news didn't include anything in the way of pics but the niche German supercar manufacturer has now released its first teaser drawing of the car.

      Up until now, Gumpert has left an interesting ...
    6. 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant Rendered by Acerbus



      We're going to an Acerbus render for the second time today and for good reason. Having gone ahead and imagineered an Avant version of the new C7 A6, Acerbus also went ahead and tailroed it in RS spec. As with his usual work, Acerbus kept it with knwon styling cues such as oval rims, RS 5/ TT RS style rear valance and subtle box flares as seen on the current RS 6.

      So What Do We Think?
      The ...
    7. Next-Gen Audi A6 allroad (C7) Render from Acerbus



      Having first sampled Audi's new A6 just last week, we've become entirely convinced that the new car will bring about an all-new level of prominence for the brand. Given that, we've been particularly curious about what new variants of the A6 will look like. Thanks to photoshop render artist Acerbus, we're now able to see.

      So What Do We Think?
      One of the things we really like about Acerbus ...
    8. Audi Group S Prototype: The Little-Known Mid-Engine Audi Rally Car with Cloak & Dagger History



      If you've been through Audi's Museum Mobile then maybe you've spotted the above car rather anonymously sitting on the rotating paternoster of concept cars and prototypes. I've spotted it any number of times and my general understanding was that it was a mid-engine replacement for Audi's rallying Sport quattros. And while this is true, that only begins to tell the car's story.

      Known simply as the Group S ...
    9. Audi Q5 RS Render by Avarvarii Re-Exmanines an Old Rumor



      Ever since Audi first showed its 400-hp Q5 design study at Worthersee in 2009 (and again at the SEMA Show in 2010), blogs and car magazines have theorized at possible S and RS versions of Audi's 5-passenger crossover. Most recently we've stumbled across this RS Q5 render by Andrei Avarvarii who is well known for his renders published in German car magazines like Autobild.

      So What Do We Think? ...
    10. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Glut Orange RS 5 at Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      If you're familiar with our Project Glut S5 series then this certain shade of orange is not new to you. And if you already like the S5 then you probably love the RS 5.
