    1. Video: Audi TV "Keeping Track of the Tracks"



      As we get closer to the R18 TDI's race debut this weekend at Spa, Tom Kristensen has helped drum up the interest by posting a new video by Audi TV to his Facebook fan page. The video, entitled 'Keeping Track with the Tracks' provides good background on courses such as Hockenheim, the Nurburgring, Mugello and... ...
    2. Video: Driver Loses Control, Then Saves B5 Audi A4 on Portuguese Highway



      It pays to know what you're doing behind the wheel. And though we all like to think we do, you never really know until you're put to the test. Case in point is the Portuguese driver of an Audi A4 in the video below. On a fast highway sweeper and just after passing a car, the driver rather masterfully counter ...
    3. Videos: Audi A4 DTM Hoonage, Natasha Bedingfield + More at Series Presentation in Wiesbaden



      This past weekend the 2011 DTM series was officially kicked off with the traditional demonstration and celebration in downtown Wiesbaden. Each year the series closes off the streets of its home town and invites tens of thousands of fans to take part.

      The event includes a little bit of everything, from a concert (Natasha Beddingfield played this year) to demonstration ...
    4. Video: Querkraftfrei Audi A5 Featured on YouTube by Autobild



      Just a few minutes ago we published a feature about the Querkraftfrei Audi A5 prototype. German car magazine Autobild recently had a chance to drive and test the car and have published a webisode on the car and its technology over on YouTube. Watch it and you'll see how the car works, including the net effect on liquid (orange juice) in a glass held in the cupholder. Thank-you ...
    5. Video: On Location at Audi R18 Test in Sebring Florida, 17-Min Packed with Interview & Track Footage



      Since last week when we attended the R18 test at Sebring Raceway following the running of the 12 Hours, we've been doing our best to push out as much content as possible. While we're not quite done (expect a written report and more photos), we've now uploaded a 500 pic photo gallery , some B-Roll footage of the car on track and some interview clips with ...
    6. Video: Fourtitude Interview Clips with Wolfgang Ullrich, Ullrich Baretzky and Howden Haynes at R18 Sebring Test



      While on the ground at last week's R18 Test in Sebring Fourtitude had a chance to sit down with Wolfgang Ullrich, Ullrich Baretzky and Howden Haynes of Audi Sport to chat about the new car. On hand at the interview was Guerilla Video shooting for Audi of America who's shared their footage with us as we produce some of our own footage. ...
    7. Video: Audi A6 "Manipulation" Commercial



      We've just stumbled across one of Audi's latest A6 commercials from Europe posted over on YouTube. Called "Manipulation", the spot's creators likened aluminum alloy to clay and through computer animation this looks like an easy task. Watch below.

    8. Godfather of Auto Writers, David E. Davis Jr. Passes. R.I.P.



      One of automotive journalism's greatest passed over the weekend of complications from cancer surgery. We learned David E. Davis Jr. died at the age of 80 and were truly saddened by the news.

      Some might say it's Brock, but I'd wager David E. Davis is the godfather of automotive journalism. You see, David E. was there in the beginning... or what many see as both the beginning and the ...
    9. Lightweight TechDay Video Recap from Audi TV Shows Even More of "The Beast"



      Last week we published a story about a lightweight 2.5T-powered A5 coupe that was a drivetrain mule for the Audi quattro Concept. Dubbed "The Beast" by its quattro GmbH creators, we'd had a chance to drive the car and report back on the experience in a 2-part series.

      Though we devoted plenty of ink (err... pixels) to "The Beast", that car ...
    10. New Snowpocalypse Themed Commercial Starring R8 from Audi of America Emphasizes Benefits of quattro



      I got an email a few weeks ago from a source at Audi looking for footage of an Audi, preferably an R8, in the snow. The only thing like that I could think of was the the video review Ezra Dyer had done about the R8 V10 for the New York times. Turns out Audi had already zeroed in on ...
