    1. Audi Exclusive Sighting in Video: Audi R8 GT in Signal Green



      Last August we ran a story about an Audi R8 GT painted by Audi Exclusive in Signal Green, photos of which had been posted over at AutoGespot. For those unfamiliar with the hue, Signal Green is almost a basic non-metalic primary green that was a popular color of choice for German cars in the early 70s. B1 Audi 80 (a.k.a. Audi Fox) models were available in the color as was the Porsches of the time and especially the 911 RS. ...
    2. 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 ...
    3. Truth in Pictures: Audi R8 GT Meets R8 GRAND-AM in Daytona



      With the Audi R8 finally on a racing grid in America, it seems logical that American R8 owners will sit up and take notice. Attendance by a few R8s and their owners at the Audi Racing Experience hospitality presence was to be expected, but even still it was a treat to see a US-spec R8 GT make ...
    4. New Audi R8 GT Billboard in Chicago with a Personal Touch



      It's not every day that a dealership celebrates the sale of just one car by emblazoning that fact on a billboard, but that's exactly the case for Chicago area Audi dealership The Audi Exchange. Having just sold an R8 GT to a proud new owner in Lake Forest, IL, the dealership made the very clever move of warning local motorists to stay out of its way. Nice job Audi Exchange!

    5. Choice Gear: Affordable 1:18 Scale Audi R8 GT on Amazon



      We featured a scale model Audi R8 GT on our recent 2011 Holiday Gift Guide for the Audi Enthusiast , though as a resin model that one may have been a bit expensive for all but the serious scale model collector. Not so with this 1:18 scale Audi R8 GT we found on Amazon.com following its inclusion on a similar gift guide we found over on Nick's Car Blog.

      At $30, don't expect the level of detail you'll ...
    6. Photo Gallery: Audi at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show



      Last week marked press days for the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, which also meant several North American reveals for Audi. Among the stars of the Audi stand were the R8 GT Spyder, the S8, S7 and S6. Also on display, though more conceptual in nature, were the Audi e-tron Spyder and also an A3 with experimental e-tron drivetrain.

      Check out more photos of each, as well as ...
    7. 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, ...
    8. Ultimate 385-hp Lightweight Audi TT RS-GT Planned as Current Car Lifecycle Matures



      Paris car magazine L'Automobile is reporting today that Audi plans to bid a fond farewell to the current generation TT in the form of stripped down hardcore version with even more horsepower. If the French rumors are true, then details include a bump from 360 hp to 385 hp for the 2.5 TFSI. The story also suggests the car will drop some 125 lbs or more ...
    9. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Audi R8 GT in British Racing Green



      On first verbal description, the R8 GT with its red-accented badges and brakes might not be the best pairing for green bodywork. The net effect might be assumed to be a bit... well... yuletide. Seeing it in the buff though, it certainly seems to work. We've spotted this one lone British Racing Green R8 GT photograph over on idownshift.com.

      We don't know much about this car other ...
    10. Video: Motor Trend Ultimate Drag Race Pits Audi R8 GT Against Nearly Every Current Exotic



      So if had an R8 GT and an airport booked, what would you do? Well, if you're the guys at Motor Trend you'd first give it to editor Mike Febbo to log an in-depth analysis of the car . Then, schedules permitting, you might pit it against ten other cars you might have around the office... like maybe a BMW 1M, Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Chevrolet Corvette ...
