    2. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      Over the last two weeks we've logged as many trips to Germany and visited the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on four separate days. Beyond the gratuitous FourSquare mayorships we've netted at Audi's world HQ , the real thing we learned was just how much to see and experience there is going on in and around Audi's grand piazza on any given day.

      Admittedly, ...
    3. Audi Driver: 'Modern Family' Patriarch Drives Audi A8 for Season 3



      Since its launch in 2009, ABC's 'Modern Family' has re-set the comedic bar and brought energy back to the television sitcom. Centering on three hardly traditional and unintentionally hip families living in Southern California, it's not surprising that one of them ended up driving an Audi.

      As patriarch of the family, Jay Pritchett (played by Ed O'Neill) leads the crew. He's both father and grandfather to the ...
    4. New D4 Audi A8 Body Kit Invents "RS8" Look



      Though perhaps they've wished otherwise, every Audi enthusiast knows Ingolstadt's never affixed its RS initials on the backside of its Q-ship A8. Likely executives and brand managers don't think the raw performance nature suits Audi's big Q-ship though that hasn't stopped Germany's Hofele Design from taking a stab at it and with a very clean result. ...
    5. Chris Vance, Andrea Osvart and Audi A8 To Star in New 'Transporter' TV Serires from Cinemax



      With the exception of the first installment of the Jason Statham action thrillers under the name "The Transporter", the Audi A8 has been a staple presence. And though never quite as elegant as the S8 placement in Ronin, we found ourselves indulging in the Transporter movies even at their most unbelievable... like driving a car through a stone barrier and into a lake, only to pull it out of the lake and keep driving it. ...
    6. Kacher's German Intel Via Autobild: R5, R5 Sportback, A9 and More



      We've spoken enough good about Georg Kacher and his authority on far-reaching intel to perhaps look like a bunch of fanboys of the German/Anglo motor journalist. Fact is, Kacher's got contacts at the highest levels in the board of Audi and other German manufacturers so he usually knows what's what. And even though it may be so far out that it's subject to change, ...
    7. Audi Driver: Zoe Saldana Spotted in New A8



      We spotted Zoe Saldana, shown above in the April 2010 pages of Glamour Magazine, once at a party at the Audi Forum New York. Perhaps it's not a surprise that the actress is familiar with Audi. She even drives one according to CelebrityCarsBlog who recently photographed her at the wheel of a black 2011 A8. Check it out via the link below.

    8. Audi UK PR Chief Jon Zammett to Attend Royal Wedding



      It's fair to say that Audi and the British royal family have had a long relationship. Princess Diana was known to show up at events at the wheel of an Audi Cabriolet, Prince Charles maintains a fleet of Audis and even soon-to-be-royal Kate Middleton has leased an A3 in recent years. Still, the fact that the Royals are so closely tied to the firm and Kate Middleton's recent testing of an A8 for use as her new car has been more ...
    9. Audi Driver: Jason Statham Drives an Audi A8... As If You Didn't Know.



      Hey, you know that actor Jason Statham? Turns out he drives an Audi A8. I know... surprising, right?

      It's fair to say that Jason Statham has had his fair share of association with Audi. There were the two guilty pleasure Transporter movies (2 and 3 to be specific, because he drives a Bimmer in 1). There was the Audi chase commercial where Statham rocked a then-new ...
    10. Via Fourtitude: Our Piece on Audi of America Product Planner Anthony Foulk in Latest Audi Magazine



      For the latest issue of the Audi Magazine for the US market we contributed a profile piece on Anthony Foulk, product planner for A6, A7, A8 and their derivatives. Anthony is an interesting guy, a car enthusiast, an F1 nutcase and former BMW employee. And, covering the brands he does, Anthony has his hands on some of Audi's most important cars as it moves toward the planned C/D shift of business growth on the backs of the A6, A7 ...
