    1. Via 4T: eGarage Features the 200 quattro Trans-Am



      Out to Infineon for a shoot on a Ferrari, the guys at eGarage found themselves in a bit of a pinch. The Ferrari's motor blew and was a no-show, but another car they found in the paddock fit the bill. Seems the boys from Eurospec were there with their 1988 Audi 200 quattro Trans-Am. This car marked a fantastic era of racing for Audi in America and perhaps a bit of a precursor to the whole downsizing ...
    2. 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. ...
    3. Via 4T: More Waterfest Coverage from quattroholic



      When shows are as big as Waterfest, we find ourselves perusing photo galleries even if we may have perused the very same show field on the day of the event. Why? Pardon the convenient metaphor, but Waterfest is like water in a leaky bucket. It's fluid, and there's little chance of seeing everything. In as much, we've found quattroholic's report just now and managed ...
    4. Via 4T: Autoblog Quick Spin of Q3 S-line



      Autoblog European contributor Matt Davis attended the Q3 launch last week and has penned his impressions of Audi's newest and (thus-far) smallest crossover. And while Q3 reviews aren't all that rare since the launch began in Zurich, Matt's caught our eye because it focuses on the S-line version and includes plenty of unique photos.

      We love the S-line-trimmed steering wheel and those

      For the latest issue of the Audi Magazine for the US market we contributed a profile piece on Anthony Foulk, product planner for A6, A7, A8 and their derivatives.

    6. Via Fourtitude: Le Mans Coverage. Audi Magazine. Fourtitude Writer.



      We're proud to admit we contribute to the Audi Magazine on occasion including this two-part story about Audi motorsport and Le Mans. Part 1 provides a recap on the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans. Part 2 explains why Audi races and keys it all back into the whole "Unfair Advantage" theme. ...
    7. Via Fourtitude: Spy vs. Spy Audi A4 Avant Featured on Eurotuner.com



      On the tuning scene we've seen themed but not those based on a cartoon. Then came Eddie Rosovich's B6 Avant based on Spy vs. Spy. We're guessing the final product won't be for everyone but we tip the hat to Eddie for a thorough implementation with just enough hint of OE+ style. We ...

    9. Via Fourtitude: March 2011 Car & Driver Magazine Issue One Worth Picking Up + Online Content



      When we were on location in California to drive the Audi quattro Concept last month, we'd heard the iconic Sport quattro they'd had on hand wasn't running quite right. Only a few journalists had a chance to compare ...
