That Audi ran their humongous full-size V8 in DTM still makes me happy.
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.
Audi has completely updated every panel of the A4 sedan for 2017, though you’d be hard pressed to notice any changes at all. The biggest change you will notice is a hike in the price, with the base A4 now starting at $37,300 before destination fees.
Audi’s van-wagon-SUV thing, the Q7, has been refreshed for the 2017 model year, and not so surprisingly, you don’t have a diesel option anymore.
In my line of work, it’s easy to become jaded. The mind will eventually get used to anything, given enough exposure. This applies to everything from noise, to speed, to narcotics. Even the irreverent Dr. Hunter S Thompson got used to his own warped reality, in which the violence and substance abuse eventually became…

There are a few golden moments in motorsports, not the least of which being the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) in the late '80s. It was one of the most sideways, door-banging series of all time, and we often forget one of its heroes.
Are you car shopping for a special gearhead this holiday? Forget about new, they'll just complain about depreciation. And don't get something too flashy, they won't like the attention. You want to find something unique, but still has serious performance credentials. You want a Sport Quattro.

Audi has produced their 5,000,000th Quattro since the 1980 Ur-quattro. So go on and have a bottle of Hefeweizen!
When we go have to go shopping for a new or used vehicle, most of us end up doing it on the weekend. If that's what you're doing today, then GREAT NEWS! Have I got a deal for you!
Some car companies build a reputation over time, while others create their mystique one model at a time. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Audi V8 Quattro leapfrogged the German brand into über sedan territory, but is its price, reputable?
Audi's executive class sedan has changed its name so many times you'd think it was participating in the witness protection program. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe '93 Quattro goes by S4 due to its sporting pretensions, but does its seller need to name a new price?
Go slow, steer into skids, pump your brakes — just a few of the snow driving tips those of us in winter states know too well. Seattle drivers got a pop quiz on them from Mother Nature Monday. They failed.
We've seen the Audi Quattro concept under auto show lights, but Jalopnik reader Brian caught the car out in Malibu on Monday. Its minders let slip what's been rumored so far: the Quattro will get a limited production build.
Audi calls its A7 a "large five-door coupe." We could get all doctrinaire and note that "coupe" comes from a French term for a single-seat carriage with one or two doors. Why is the word "hatchback" so bad?
A modern take on the ur-Quattro that weighs as little as the original and is powered by a turbocharged inline-five for a 3.8 second 0-60 time? Of course they're not going to make it. Look upon it and despair.
