    1. Corrado RS, Chapter 3 - Suspension, Part 1

      by , 03-31-2012 at 12:17 PM (Building a Corrado "RS")
      Chassis and suspension tuning are subjectively objective. Every production vehicle is tuned with a goal in mind, be it highway cruising, back-road bombing, or city russian roulette. Some manufacturers try to blur the lines in one direction or another, but the generalization is hard to skirt: Aim for sublime handling on the back roads and the car might bounce around a bit too much on the highway or knock your teeth out in the city. High-end cars have managed to deal with this accepted norm very well ...
    2. Corrado RS, Chapter 2 - The Heart

      by , 03-31-2012 at 12:15 PM (Building a Corrado "RS")
      As with any great car, the engine is of the utmost importance. Sure, the suspension can be godlike and the car can handle phenomenally, but at the end of the day a capable chassis needs an equally capable engine. In its heyday, the 12v VR6 engine received multiple awards from the automotive press based on its compact packaging with its staggered piston placement, the engine allowed for V6 performance within the footprint of a common 4 cylinder. From a VW enthusiast's perspective, before the advent ...
    3. Video: Watch an Audi Fox (80 B1) Beat Up on 911 GT3s at the Nordschleife



      The car you see above may not look very intimidating but most car enthusiasts will tell you not to discount a car just for that. Light weight and track experience can make a world of difference and that's exactly the case in the video (below) we found posted on Jalopnik today.

    4. Audi R8 GT Spyder in Silver



      One of the photos we've encountered today with the press release from Audi's new AutoStadt pavilion included this R8 GT Spyder seen on display in Wolfsburg. We've only seen a few GT Spyders so far and hadn't yet seen a silver example so figured it was worth sharing.

    5. Audi Presence at Essen's Techno Classica in Pictures by Roger Mecking



      In many ways American Audi enthusiast Roger Mecking is living the dream amongst his peers. Mecking relocated with his work to Germany last year, shipping his A4 Avant over in the process. In between bouts of high speed touring on the Autobahn and installing rare parts and trim requisitioned via German Ebay on his B5, Roger is finding his way to fantastic car enthusiast events like Techno Classica in Essen. ...
    6. Latest Audi Q5 Spy Photos Reveal Most Undisguised Look Yet



      We've got a new set of Q5 spy photos from our spy photographer sources and these latest shots reveal new details. What you see here is what appears to be a non S-line version with very little disguise. Look closely and you can clearly see the hexagonal grille with no fake framing and what appears to also be the new lighting clusters with solid LED style housings.

    7. Video: Drive Sebring / WEC Coverage Including Excellent Allan McNish Interview



      While in Sebring we had the pleasure of meeting Drive's motorsport guru Leo Parente (who told us he's a Fourtitude regular... thanks Leo!). We weren't surprised that the conversation would be both surrounding motorsport and tremendously interesting, and we further weren't very surprised to see Leo and the Drive team come up with some excellent ...
    8. Another Kacher Report on Audi & Ducati Deal



      We covered the potential purchase of Ducati by Audi story when it first broke over on CAR Magazine's website. The author was Georg Kacher, a usually reliable source who also contributes to the American buff Automobile Magazine. Kacher has since published another piece over on Automobile with some further details of the situation so we're ...
    9. Supposed Audi R8 e-tron Interior Spy Photo Surfaces. Could Reveal R8 Facelift Interior.



      Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts likely at the Paris Motor Show in September.

      What Do We See?
      The most obvious change here is a much bigger ...
    10. Audi Mulling A4 SuperAvant as MPV Alternative



      Automobile Magazine has published a report today from European contributor Georg Kacher - a journalist with contacts on the board level at Audi who is often privy to Audi plans early in gestation. When we catch a far-out rumor from Kacher, we often read it with interest since it speaks to the thought patterns of the Audi board though doesn't always ...
