    1. Audi Exclusive Sighting: R8 GT Spyder in Rare Panther Black Crystal Effect



      We met up a few weeks ago with Audi of America R8 product planner Mark Fruechtnicht at the local Neato Burrito. Fruechtnicht was in the area doing a site visit at a local Audi dealership and this gave us an both an excuse to enjoy a great burrito and talk shop about Audi and the R8. The conversation eventually turned to Audi Exclusive and Fruechtnicht admitted that one of his favorite ...
    2. Swedish Professional Skier Jon Olsson Swaps Camo Lamborghini Gallardo for New Audi Supercharged Widebody Audi R8



      Swedish skiing sensation and Red Bull sponsored athlete Jon Olsson established himself firmly as a certified car buff when he began to show up to the slopes in a snow camo wrapped Gallardo that made its own share of waves. So how do you follow up such a ride to the ski slopes? We've been watching Olsson's blog closely over the ...
    3. Video: Watch an Audi Fox (80 B1) Beat Up on 911 GT3s at the Nordschleife



      The car you see above may not look very intimidating but most car enthusiasts will tell you not to discount a car just for that. Light weight and track experience can make a world of difference and that's exactly the case in the video (below) we found posted on Jalopnik today.

    4. Audi R8 GT Spyder in Silver



      One of the photos we've encountered today with the press release from Audi's new AutoStadt pavilion included this R8 GT Spyder seen on display in Wolfsburg. We've only seen a few GT Spyders so far and hadn't yet seen a silver example so figured it was worth sharing.

    5. Latest Audi Q5 Spy Photos Reveal Most Undisguised Look Yet



      We've got a new set of Q5 spy photos from our spy photographer sources and these latest shots reveal new details. What you see here is what appears to be a non S-line version with very little disguise.

    6. Another Kacher Report on Audi & Ducati Deal



      We covered the potential purchase of Ducati by Audi story when it first broke over on CAR Magazine's website. The author was Georg Kacher, a usually reliable source who also contributes to the American buff Automobile Magazine.

    7. Supposed Audi R8 e-tron Interior Spy Photo Surfaces. Could Reveal R8 Facelift Interior.



      Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts likely at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      What Do We See?
      The most obvious change here is a much bigger ...
    8. Audi Mulling A4 SuperAvant as MPV Alternative



      Automobile Magazine has published a report today from European contributor Georg Kacher - a journalist with contacts on the board level at Audi who is often privy to Audi plans early in gestation. When we catch a far-out rumor from Kacher, we often read it with interest since it speaks to the thought patterns of the Audi board though doesn't always ...
    9. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Nogaro Blue Audi A4 Avant Purchased by EuroPrice Customer



      Europrice has posted a photo on their facebook page of a new car purchased by one of their customers. B5 S4 fans will likely guess the color name immediately - the legendary Nogaro Blue. Word on the street is that this hue is headed back into production very soon and this car reminds us why.

      According to the boys at Europrice, this car is due to get a few ...
    10. Facelifted R8 Teased in New Video from Audi



      Audi tv has released a new video celebrating five years of production of the R8. Most of the video is footage of Audi's mid-engine supercar in various guises (coupe, Spyder, 4.2, 5.2, GT), though the very end of the video gets even more interesting as a shadowy image reveals the facelifted R8 due later this year. Not much can be gleaned from the pic (seen above), but it appears the R8 has a fixed rear wing and smaller grille inlets ...
