    1. 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 ...
    2. Find of the Day: 1985 Audi Ur quattro Stage III+ RS 2



      Were we to build a modded ur quattro, we likely wouldn't vary much from what you see here... and we doubt we're alone. Yes, you might prefer a different color, wheel combo, euro bumpers or the like... but in the end, this is an Ur quattro with RS 2 engine swap in America and under $20K. Works for us.

      Check it out after the jump.

    3. On Location: Audi Tuning House MTM Headquarters in Wettstetten, Germany



      As mentioned earlier today, we've spent the last two weeks on trips to Germany and managed to collect plenty of content for upcoming features on Fourtitude. Some of this trip included making the quick five-minute drive from Audi's Ingolstadt facility to neighboring Wettstetten. MTM is so close to Audi, we've added them to our official FourSquare list of "Must-Visit" ...
    4. WTF? NSFW Audi Ur quattro Sure to Make More Enemies than Friends



      When it comes to modified Audis, our editorial goal has always been to share as much of the rich Audi aftermarket with our enthusiast reader base. We tend to leave judgement of modifications to those very readers and to foster acceptance of modifications done by private owners to their pride and joy. That said, there's always an exception that will raise our even hand to our ...
    5. Find of the Day: 1985 Well-Preserved Ur-quattro in Everett Washington Isn't Cheap



      As the iconic Ur quattro becomes more and more rare... at least the nicely preserved ones... the prices seem to be moving healthily northward. Take for example this 107,000 mile Titan Red example we've located in Everett Washington. At a listed price of $25,888, this is one of the more expensive specimens we've seen, but it's not in the stratosphere and if it is well-preserved then the number is certainly fair. From photos, ...
    6. Find of the Day: RS 2 Powered Ur-quattro



      Only really sold in any number (and small numbers at that) for two model years in the USA, the Ur quattro isn't exactly what you'd call common. Finding any example, much less a clean one has become increasingly hard for American fans of Audi's rallying icon. And when it comes to modified ones, ideas of proper upgrades can certainly vary. All that being said, we think we've stumbled across a modified example that most will agree qualifies ...
    7. 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 ...
    8. Choice Gear: Urwerk UR-110



      In choosing goods and often watches to share with our readers as 'Choice Gear' we usually try to stick with the Audi theme or perhaps something that compliments your Audi in some way. Alas, when it comes though to the Urwerk UR-110 shown above we can only offer that the timepiece is one cool-looking watch and also one that's got a name that resonates with us.

      "Ur quattro" is the term most commonly affixed to ...
    9. Video: Ur quattro Takes on Ross Lake Ice Race



      One of our favorite personal blogs is the 'In the Garage' blog we've found at http://rgruppe.blogspot.com. The owner of the blog has a fixation on his vintage rally-prepped Ur quattro and also his R-Gruppe 911. His loves are close to our heart. Even better, he's posted video just this week of his exploits in his Audi (above) at the Second Ross Lake Ice Race. The video (you'll ...
    10. Latest Audi RS 5 vs Earliest Ur quattro in 30 Years of quattro Comparison at SportAuto



      German car magazine SportAuto has published a comparison of the latest Audi RS 5 versus one of the earliest Audi Ur quattro versions as part of its celebration of the 30 years of quattro anniversary. In many ways the RS 5 is the modern equivalent of the legendary original quattro so the comparison seems fitting. The story is in German but we've also included the google translation ...
