    1. 4.0T FSI Alert: Audi's Next-Gen Wunder Engine Revealed in Bentley Press Release



      There've been any number of rumors about the engine that will power Audi's upcoming S and RS variants. We've read everything from V10 biturbo to high-rev V8 in the mags but at the end of the day we're keeping our money on the biturbo 4.0T FSI to motivate the S6, S7, S8 (likely more as 4.2 is phased out) and likely RS variants of each will be a biturbo 4.0T. An extremely senior source in Germany mentioned 4.0T to us a while back ...
    2. Find of the Day: Museum Quality 7,000 Mile 1983 Audi Coupe GT from NJ listed on Ebay



      Let's face it, unless they're an ur quattro, pristine Audis from the B2 generation have simply disappeared. Short of the ur with its then exotic pricing north of the Porsche 911, the squarish B2s were bought and driven... well, not all of them. We've just found perhaps the nicest example of an early small bumper Coupe GT we've ever seen.

      This 1983 GT is located in Wall, NJ and features a hair over 7,000 miles on the ...
    3. Audi R8 GT Spyder Render by Jon Sibal



      Photoshop ace and Audi enthusiast Jon Sibal was inspired last week by the R8 Spyder starring in the new Iron Man 2 movie and also by the just-released R8 GT when he put together these renders of an R8 GT Spyder. Of course with the coupe just announced there's no real indicator yet that Audi might consider building such a beast but if Jon's renders are any indicator we hope that they do.

    4. Audi R8 GT Multimedia Fix for the Most Afflicted Addicts



      We've just stumbled upon two new sources for photos and more of the new king-of-the-hill Audi R8 GT. It turns out that Ingolstadt has taken the R8 GT section of its own Audi.de German market website live while at the same time we've gotten access to a huge collection of photos from the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique where Audi unveiled the car, lapping the fabled F1 street course with the ...
    5. 200 Photos Added of 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Incl. Audi R8 GT & Silver Arrows



      You may remember last week's unveiling of the Audi R8 GT took place at the rather unique venue of the 2010 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique - a vintage event where the the return of two Auto Union Silver Arrows (a Type C and Type D with Hans Stuck and Jacky Ickx at the wheel respectively) likely was just as significant to attendees as the GT's global launch. ...
    6. Audi R8 GT in Ipanema Brown



      Last week Audi revealed the R8 GT at the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and while most all of the photos and PR materials to have surfaced from the event showed the car in the almost-white Suzuka Grey color, photos we've found on Flickr also show one in Audi Design Chief Stefan Sielaff's favorite color of Ipanema Brown.
