    3. #N24 2011: ADAC 24h Classic Photo Gallery Added



      We've just added to our 2011 24 Hours of Nurburgring photo gallery with a collection of shots form the ADAC 24h Classic vintage race. As is typical of the grid for the 24h main event, the grid for the classic was an eclectic mix of metal and alloy.

      by: Jason Crouch

      Welcome to installment 10 in our 12 show series for the TTS/SF project car build-up for Fourtitude.com. In our last installment, we traded out 4 items to coincide with all of the new power mods that Project TTS/SF had seen during the initial 8 webisodes of this series. With our next installment of Project TTS-SF, we really wanted to give the Audi a voice, via the Meisterschaft GTC valved quad ...
    5. New Audi R8 Print Ad Makes Clever Use of Matryoshka Doll Theme



      We doubt we have to define it, but a Matryoshka doll is that toy of Russian heritage where one doll opens up to reveal another inside... and another... and another. It's a simple idea, and also clever when applied to this new print ad for the R8 by one of Audi's ad agencies DDB Barcelona.

      The tag line for the ad is "Audi R8: A sporty car full of history", which is well exemplified with this computer-rendered ...
    6. On Location: Audi Experiments with Carbon Fiber Body Panels and TT Benefits



      Just before the recent Geneva Motor Show, Fourtitude visited the Audi Lightweight Design Center (ALDC) in Neckarsulm and had a chance to test drive a few very interesting vehicles (more to come on that later). While on location for the drives, we encountered a comparative display between the aluminum hood of a standard TT S-line ...
    7. Geneva 2011: Volkswagen Group L'Esprit des Marques Photo Gallery Added


      As has become tradition at major European motor shows, the Volkswagen Group invited a few thousand of its closest friends to reveal many highlights of their planned debuts at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Ditching the term 'Night of Driving Ideas', the VW Group went with the more appropriate (for French-speaking Geneva) L'Esprit des ...

      Words: Jason Crouch, Photography by Cole Kelly & Jason Crouch

      In our previous installment, we rolled down to the San Diego suburb of Vista, California to watch a new set of HRE wheels get built and fit along with a set of Goodyear Eagle F1’s to our project car.

      For this installment we’re going full circle in the ...
    9. Find of the Day: Audi SEMA Show TTS Coupe for Sale at Dealership in Nevada



      Pardon the pimping of our own new exhaustiv car listing aggregator but we were surfing it this morning on a search for cool cars to include in an ad banner we'll be running on this site to help raise awareness of the new feature when we ran across this familiar-looking TTS coupe.

      As you may remember, Audi built several cars as part of its presence at ...
    10. Project TTS:SF - APR Stage 3



      words: Jason Crouch
      photos: Sa’ Jamil Hogan & Jason Crouch


      In our previous installment we flashed the ECU of our Audi TTS with that old APR magic to Stage 1. We also became the first mag-ride equipped Audi in North America to utilize the new KW Suspension “Elektronics kit”, defeating the CEL’s that usually go along with that while creating a beautifully handling and properly stance’d MK2 TT.
