    1. R8 Card Revokage in Loading Zone Please: Owner Hauls Big Screen on Roof of Audi Exotic



      What happens when you're at Best Buy in the R8 and the deal on the big screen is just that good? Answer: Not this.

      Fourtitude contributor and Audi Wilmington (DE) Audi brand specialist Tommy Mihok just passed this over having spotted it on Team Speed. It is our hope that the two young mugs blacked out behind the box are perhaps the owner's sons who simply don't get it. If not, we ...
    2. Video: Audi A7 Spy Footage Shows Disguised Test Mule Under Tests



      We've just stumbled across this footage (below) posted by VAUMAXde to YouTube. The footage shows an Audi A7 test mule from multiple angles testing everywhere from public roads to the Nurburgring. A7 mules have been spotted plenty in photos but not much video has been seen yet so we figured it was a must-watch for most on here.

      We spotted the video over on GermanCarBlog.com with some ...
    3. Choice Gear: Mykita Série Noire Aviator Sunglasses Perfect Personal Accessory for Titanium Package Types



      When it comes to sunglasses there may not be much cooler or more timeless than the typical Aviator theme. Ray-Ban started the trend but pretty much everybody makes a variation on the iconic theme and we're particularly fond of htese new Mykita Série Noire examples. Matte black steel frames and an evolved lens shape in mirrored finish make us want to pick up a set as we wait for those Titanium Package Audis to arrive. ...

    5. Audi R8 V10 Drift Video: Making of Plus Final Cut



      Check out this video we found posted in our R8 forums. The spot, done by Web Rides TV and the Famous Group, begins with the 'making of' a video where their crew (with C5 RS 6 camera car) head out to El Toro Marine Base to shoot the R8 in full on battle mode including plenty of drifting. ...
    6. Video: 5th Gear Tests the D4 Audi A8: Just Like KITT but without Hasselhoff



      5th Gear's Jonny Smith has filed a piece on the new A8 and it's quite entertaining. Typical 5th Gear spots include beautiful ambiance, a bit of whit and a quick rundown on the car. The summary is about what we'd expect and what we've seen - big compliments for the car's quality and delivery and a bit of a let-down on the looks as it ...
    7. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Audi R8 4.2 in Imola Yellow



      This isn't the first Imola Yellow R8 we've seen or even posted in our Audi News Blog before but this latest car posted over on Audiblog.nl grabbed our attention just the same. There's something about painting the R8 in that gold hue made mainstream on the B5 S4 that emphasizes the car's exotic nature. No, we wouldn't order one in Imola and most owners don't, preferring greys, blacks and silvers according to ...
    8. Coolest Garage of Audis This Side of Museum Mobile



      Jealous much? We certainly were after seeing a selection of photos posted over on RS6.com. A Taiwanese forum member by the name of Chuangs4 has posted shots of his garage and in about the most unassuming way that one does when one owns some of the coolest Audis known and likely the coolest garage in which to keep them this side of Audi's own Museum Mobile in Ingolstadt.

      How was the plug unassuming? ...

    10. Allan McNish's Busy Post-Le Mans Schedule Will Include Goodwood Festival of Speed



      Allan McNish has updated readers of his website on what he's been up to since the 24 Hours of Le Mans on his blog. Here's the rundown.

      It took a week to get back to full fitness, full strength, full feeling after Le Mans. The emotional fatigue, the pressure, everything else about that race week is quite intense. Like I said in the previous Newsletter, we then went
