Hazing is generally something stupid kids do to initiate members into a group. Generally, if you’re hazing someone at an actual place of work, or if the hazing includes things like setting people on fire, that’s not an initiation but psychopathic cruelty. It’s also what employees at an Audi repair center in Berkshire,…
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.
What do you get when you fill the trunk of a classic Beetle with a modern Audi 1.8-liter turbocharged engine that’s been tuned up to 389 horsepower? Donuts. You get donuts.
Okay. Black and white. Cool! Yuppies in a park. Alright! I’m on board.
Besides the new Buick Regal wagon and a couple of insanely overpowered Dodge and Jeep products, as far as new cars and concepts went the New York Auto Show was a snoozefest. There’s a reason for this and it’s happened the last couple years too: automakers save the good shit for the Chinese show, which is in Shanghai…
If you’re still sad about Audi’s Le Mans prototype effort going the way of the dodo, Audi has a mild consolation prize. It’s an R8 in Audi Sport racing colors, just like the R8s, R10s and others that you dearly miss seeing compete. Now you can live like Dieselgate never happened, and never forced any major cuts to…
First there was the Audi R8 Le Mans prototype. It was one of the most successful cars of its kind, and it was good. Then came the road-going R8 sports car, which was also good. Then the R8 sports car went racing in its own right, cementing Audi’s quest to dominate everything with something called an “R8.”
The Nissan GT-R is genuinely a monster when it comes to, well, just about everything—a performance car in every regard, in almost any situation. That’s why it’s been battling the field for 10 years strong. And yet, it just got destroyed by an Audi wagon three times in a row.
Let’s say you’ve got a little more than $50k to burn on something fast. Now you could spend on it a very loaded Chevrolet Camaro SS, or a BMW M2, but!—at some point you convinced another person to have relations with you, possibly twice. Audi’s got the answer for you, and it’s the 2017 and 2018 Audi RS3 Sedan.
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 read or Ryan Felton is coming to your house.
We all know what happened the last time Audi and Porsche came together to make a vehicle. It was the legendary RS2 Avant and now the two automakers will again work their collective magic on a range of upcoming cars.
The fierce little track-friendly 2017 Audi TT RS will make its American debut at the New York International Auto Show in a couple of weeks, showing off its sharp cuts, five-cylinder engine, and its hefty $65,785 starting price tag.
Silvercar is one of the cooler car services in the country, a rental car agency that only rents silver Audi A4s. It’s like a rental car, only not trash. Now Audi has brought the whole thing under its wing.
Despite Lamborghini’s Stephan Winkelmann moving over to head Audi Sport GmbH—the ‘fun’ side of the German brand—no fun is to be had in anything resembling the desirably derivative Audi Sport Quattro concept from 2013. It is officially dead.
Would you kick an Audi S2 Coupe out of your garage? I do not think I would.
There were some hopes that a privateer would pick up Audi’s R18 Le Mans prototype program where Audi left off, but that won’t be happening now. Team Penske owner Roger Penske asked Audi about running the R18 at Le Mans, but Audi won’t let be letting him or anyone else do it.
This whole four-door coupe bit by the Germans is a bit silly. I know it’s a sedan, you know it’s a sedan, but since Audi won’t sell you an Avant in the US and the Allroad wants to pretend it’s a crossover the A5/S5 Sportback is the next best thing. Maybe. Probably not.
To be fair to BMW, California doesn’t usually get this much rain. Audi’s social media team isn’t here to play fair though.
