The Audi TT Offroad Concept Is The Future Of Audi's Little Coupe

The original Audi TT was a little sporty-ish coupe ostensibly based on a Volkswagen Golf. Throughout the years it's grown more aggressive, and also grown out. And while it still shares a platform with the Golf, with the Audi TT Offroad concept, the little coupe is finally growing up. Literally. » 4/19/14 1:14pm 40 minutes ago

Is This What The Audi Q4 Crossover Will Look Like?

Not to be left in the dust by BMW in the multiplying luxury sports crossover segment, Audi has released drawings of its latest concept debuting this month at the Beijing Auto Show. They'll probably give us a new phrase to categorize their concept too, because that's what everyone is doing these days. » 4/08/14 10:00pm 4/08/14 10:00pm

The Audi TT Might Be Coming In All Sorts Of Crazy Flavors Pretty Soon

The 2015 Audi TT already sits on a versatile platform, if you consider how many cars it shares underpinnings with. But if some thinly veiled words slipping out of an Audi exec's mouth are true, then pretty soon we could be blessed with a whole lot more kinds of TT. Including (*GASP*) a shooting brake. » 3/22/14 4:10pm 3/22/14 4:10pm

Is This What Your Car's Cockpit Will Look Like In 2025?

Audi says their Virtual Cockpit is a pretty big deal. Set to debut on the all-new 2015 Audi TT and then at least three other new cars, it eliminates the center screen and gauge cluster for a display right in front of the driver. But what will instrumentation look like in 10 years? » 3/19/14 10:00am 3/19/14 10:00am

We Found A Hipster Who Actually Drives An Audi

We scoffed when we heard Audi wanted hipsters to drive their cars. An Audi-driving hipster just plain didn't exist, no matter how hard they tried. We didn't think they were real, but somehow, we found one. Meet Scott Greenberg, and his Audi, which are both Real Things. » 3/17/14 7:00pm 3/17/14 7:00pm

Audi Needs to Invite Me to One of Their Hipster Parties

When news broke earlier today about Audi's 64 page guide to throwing sexy hipster A3 parties, lots of people made fun of them. Me though? I just felt an overwhelming need to go. I couldn't tell you what the actual parties are going to look or be like, but I just can't shake it. I have to be there to witness whatever… » 3/11/14 9:37am 3/11/14 9:37am

Playboy 2014 Cars of the Year: Sedans


All this week we're rolling out our annual awards for best new automobiles, with us unveiling our favorite sports cars yesterday. To suss out the best of the best in every category, we prowled the earth's byways, from twisty roads in China to hilly thoroughfares in the south of France to the clogged intersections of… » 3/05/14 1:46pm 3/05/14 1:46pm

The ABT RS6-R Is A Ridiculous 720 Horse Teutonic Rocketwagon

If there ever was one problem with the original Audi RS6 Avant, it was clearly the engine. The twin-turbo V8 only put out a middling 553 horses. That's it. Barely enough to crack 200 MPH. Just awful, really, for a station wagon. That's why the crazed tuners at ABT sought fit to give it an additional 177, for an even… » 2/27/14 11:20am 2/27/14 11:20am

There Are Good Reasons Why Audis All Look The Same

This COTD took a little longer to write because I got this picture of a bunch of Audis and then tried to identify all of them. It's all because of Doug DeMuro. He's right: it's impossible to tell Audis apart these days. Many manufacturers are bad at this, but Audi's range of sedans constantly stumps me. » 2/24/14 5:00pm 2/24/14 5:00pm

Audi Needs To Make This Fake Sochi Olympic Ring Fail Ad A Reality

Things have been a little, um, rough around the edges at the Winter Olympics in Sochi thus far. After one of the five Olympic rings failed to light at the opening ceremony, one clever prankster found a great way to tie it in with Audi's logo. » 2/10/14 1:45pm 2/10/14 1:45pm

Photo Shoot: Nardo Gray Audi RS 7

I had a wonderful opportunity to do a photo shoot of a bespoken Nardo Gray Audi RS 7 Sportback, with the Matte Aluminium Optic Package with "quattro" script, at Audi Wilsonville. It was the first RS 7 with the "quattro" script that I have seen in person; plus, it was the first time that I got to sit and ride in an RS 7.… » 2/10/14 12:11pm 2/10/14 12:11pm
