Looks like those crazy jokers at Audi have a nice surprise for us this evening: the all-new 2017 Audi TT RS, which comes in coupe and roadster form with a thundering five-cylinder engine packing 400 horsepower. Thanks, Audi!
A single out-of-compliance part has excluded the overall winner from the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Silverstone results, reports Sportscar365. The No. 7 Audi R18 had worn its front skid block down to less than the required 20mm minimum thickness.
No automaker is the king of vaporware sports cars like the Volkswagen Group. Rumored concepts like a sub-Boxster Porsche, a Volkswagen Bluesport Roadster or an exotic to slot below the Audi R8 never seem to come to fruition. But a German magazine seems confident an Audi R6, based on the Boxster and Cayman, is really…
After yesterday’s discussion of the saddest car configurators on the internet somebody sent us one on the opposite end of the awesomeness spectrum. This online 3D configurator for the Audi A4 Allroad blows every other one I’ve seen out of the water.
A new Audi RS3 sedan is in the works, and it’s coming to America in 2017 as a 2018-model car. A source within the company leaked more details to Car and Driver, confirming that the ‘18 RS3 will get a new, more powerful engine as well. It’s a tried and true formula we adore: more power + small Audi = yes, please.
I’ll tell you what customer service is: it’s when one of your buyers says “Hey, make me that car!” and then you say “Heck yeah, sure!” That’s what Audi did for one unnamed (and no doubt deep-pocketed) European buyer who requested an Audi A8 extended limousine. It’s surprisingly quick, too!
Yep, totally thought this was the new S4. Same headlight kink, same Audi same-ness. But this is the smaller Audi sedan, the S3. And it’s new-ish.
Remember that time Audi made a concept R8 with a huge diesel V12? It had 738 pound-feet of torque. That would have been a really fun car no one bought.
Back in 2009, Audi mystified the world by introducing a four-door version of the two-door version of their midsize four-door family car. This was the Audi A5 Sportback and we never got it in the United States, but it looks like we will.
Ever since the Audi TT got a dual-clutch transmission back in 2003, these are-they-manuals-or-nah gearboxes have become the hot new thing in the high-performance car world. But Audi first tried out a double-clutch more than 30 years ago, in the fearsome Sport Quattro S1 rally car.
Audi’s new SQ7 TDI comes with 429 horsepower and 663 lb-ft thanks to an electric compressor, two turbochargers and a trick 48‑volt electrical subsystem. They say this wonderdiesel is also “ideally suited for markets such as the United States.” The way things are going, we’ll see about that, but the SQ7 is still very…
Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The future of cars is looking more and more electric every day, and if this leaked product plan from Audi is any indication, the brand plans to unleash its own electric lineup to the world in two years with a crossover and SUV.
Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel drive is about to get a huge overhaul: a front-wheel drive-based system to be used on longitudinal-engine cars and SUVs like the A4 and Q7. It’s called “Quattro with Ultra Technology.” Here’s how it works, and why it might make Audi’s biggest fans blow a gasket.
Autonomous vehicles are edging closer and closer to a viable alternative to the way we commute today, with some automakers now introduction auto-pilot semi-autonomous systems. The only issue is they still require input from a human.. or a water bottle?
I’ve recently reached the conclusion that Audi – noted manufacturer of luxury cars that make you cough – is insane. This is largely because Audi is still refusing to sell its coolest cars in America, though I must admit they do generously offer us a plug-in hybrid version of the A3 hatchback that costs up to $50,000.
The other night I did something I do a lot. I met up with a guy I’ve only met briefly in the past to go out in his car and...wait that could be misleading. Let me start over. The other night I shot some photos of a bonkers ‘01 S4, and it turns out I first met this car about 4 years ago.
