Audi TT Clubsport Quattro Interior Defies Meme, Made Mit Aluminum Und…

Audi's apparently taking the TT Clubsport Quattro — the same show car we spotted looking much more production-like earlier this month — to the Wörthersee Tour. That's the same Tour we could make neither heads nor tails of a few days later when Audi revealed their A3 TDI Clubsport Quattro concept. At least now we… » 5/21/08 8:00am 5/21/08 8:00am

Totally Pointless Audi TTS Ad Has Us Scratching Our Heads

Okay, apparently whoever is doing the new ads for the Audi TTS is phoning it in, cause we have no idea what this commercial is trying to tell us.
