Every potential bride needs a good inspection, just like a used car—at least, that’s what Audi says with this commercial for China. Branding, folks. Here’s what not to do.
The 2018 Audi A8 is here, and like all German flagship sedans it looks like it will be wildly over-engineered. Among the endless luxury features in the new sedan, one stands out: Traffic Jam Pilot. Audi says this semi-autonomous mode actually lets drivers screw around and watch television instead of pay attention to…
The Audi R8 e-tron has been haunting the halls of Audi for nearly a decade, and now the company’s new development boss is talking like we’re about to get a third attempt at an electric Audi supercar.
Race cars exist for two reasons: to go fast and to make exciting noises for us all to enjoy. Please take in the wonderful turbo chirp on this classic five-cylinder Audi S4 GTO from 1992.
When Stephan Winkelmann, ex-Lamborghini CEO and wearer of impeccable suits, assumed the head of Quattro GmbH early last year, I was incredibly excited. He would be, it seemed, the shot of drama and life-blood Audi so desperately needed in its lineup. But in a new interview, he appears to be most interested in... SUVs?…
Audi development boss Peter Mertens said diesel is never coming back stateside and it’s all America’s fault in an interview with Car And Driver during last weekend’s Formula E race. Alright, then.
If you swap on new tires right at the end of a race, you should be required to burn off all the tread before you put the car away. Like this!
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.

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.
Alien: Covenant has a lot of far-flung futurist tech in it, which will inevitably be smeared in bits of the cast by the time the xenomorphs are done with them. But one piece in the movie is actually a bit of present-day technology: a small Rover provided by Audi that the manufacturer actually plans to send to the moon…
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.
