    1. Just in Time for iPad 4G, Audi Shows off New iPad-Based Entertainment System for A6 and A7 at Geneva Motor Show



      There was so much new on the Audi stand this week at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland that we almost forgot about this particular piece of news. Then we got back from dinner (Geneva Mean Time) and saw news from the States about the iPad 4G announcement and this bumped up to our top story.

      This new system was fitted to the new Audi A6 allroad, ...
    2. On Location: Abt Sportsline Headquarters & Race Shop in Kempten Germany



      When it comes to the Audi world, Abt Sportsline needs no introduction. Best known as one of the longest-running Audi tuners going, Abt also represents Audi's lead factory teams in the DTM and also counts itself as an Audi dealer. Headquartered in Kempten, Germany, Abt is a day jaunt from other Southern Germany Audi destinations such as Ingolstadt and ...
    3. C5 Audi allroad Stumps MacGyver... No Really.



      Poor Richard Dean Anderson. You do a hit show like his 1980s hit MacGyver where his character by the same name fixes nearly anything with something as simple as a paperclip or his trademark swiss army knife and you're subject to fix-it jokes for the rest of your life. So, when your car breaks down ...
    4. SEMA Show 2011: Audi and Lamborghini Photo Gallery Published



      Yesterday marked the opening of the 2011 SEMA Show, the event that marks the annual gathering of the automotive aftermarket. Unlike 2010, Audi skipped the idea of having an official presence at SEMA this year but that doesn't mean there's nothing to see. Fourtitude contributing editor Jamie Vondruska is at SEMA this week and we've gotten our first wave of Audi and Lamborghini photos from him. Check ...
    5. Spied: Audi A6 allroad Test Mule



      Also out testing this week is what appears to be the next-generation A6 allroad. The mule is so heavily camouflaged unlike the shot of the one testing in South America several weeks ago, one might have mistaken it for an A6... but my camouflage an A6 Avant when that's already been seen? The answer of course is that this is an allroad. We've compared these new ...
    6. Spied: Audi A6 allroad Test Mule Also in Argentina



      We've got one more photo from this week's score of test mules spied running through their paces in Argentina this week. One of the cars in the convoy we originally reported about on Monday was definitely an A6 Avant. This rear shot of that car provided to us by our spy photographer sources reveals it's not just an A6 Avant either but likely one with allroad treatment. ...
    7. Spied: Audi A3 3-Door Cold-Weather Testing



      Check out this grainy photo published by Autoblog Argentina (autoblog.com.ar). What you see here, along with other shots of a facelifted Q5, A4 Avant and more are pretty much undisguised test mules from Audi, driving in caravan and doing cold weather testing in the middle of the northern hemisphere's summer by testing in a rather untraditional location. We've come to expect spy photos of the latest Audis from locales like South Africa, ...
    8. Via 4T: Inside Line Pits A6 Versus BMW 5-Series. Guess Who Wins? (Spoiler Alert)



      InsideLine has pitted the all-new Audi A6 against its arch enemy, the BMW 5-series. Closely matched, the two cars are both the 6-cylinder with forced induction variants. The A6 is the 3.0 TFSI and the 5er is the 535 biturbo.

      We have to admit, that the A6 won was not so much of a surprise. Even the last-generation car beat the Bimmer in several recent Car Magazine tests. ...

      Eminem via Eight Mile Style, the company that handles song licensing for the rapper, has filed a suit in the German court system against Audi for unauthorized interpretation of the song 'Lose Yourself' according to Jalopnik and the Detroit Free Press.

    10. Audi A6 Avant Photo Embargo Broken By T-Mobile Online, S-line Photos Revealed



      T-Mobile Germany appears to have had the A6 Avant photo embargo materials ahead of time and also to have pulled the trigger a few hours early. Whether by design to draw traffic or by accident, the result is that viewers get to see Audi's new wagon a few hours early.
