In its latest 2022 iteration, the Audi A5 is available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in two states of tune and prices start from $45,195. Let’s take a closer look at why the Audi A5 is the perfect sports sedan.
Audi Extremity Concept is the Quad of the Future
Audi isn’t exactly in the business of making off-roaders, but that hasn’t stopped the creativity of a certain dude to create an off-road quad-bike that can go over all terrain. It’s called the Audi Extremity Concept, and the rendering is a creation of Annan Li, wherein he imagined what an ATV from the brand with four rings will look like.
2022 Audi RS3 - Performance, Price, and Photos
This is the 2022 Audi RS3, the most aggressive interpretation of the humble Audi A3 platform. The RS3 first hit the scene in Europe, more than a decade ago. It did all the rational stuff that you’d expect from a hot hatch along with offering up a sporty drive. Over the years, it has evolved to offer more power and better dynamics.
Now, RS models are rare as they come, but the RS3, after skipping a year is making a comeback to the United States, with some fairly substantial upgrades. This is especially true for some big additions made to the drivetrain, all in a bid to retain the crown for the ultimate performance compact sedan. So here’s what has Audi done to transform the A3 into a drift machine for the road.
Watch an Audi R8 Try to Beat the BMW M5 Competition At Its Own Game
Drag racing is the most straightforward way of seeing which car is quicker. While it certainly doesn’t give you the whole picture, CarWow continues to provide “what if” scenarios, by pitting two, often, very different cars against one another. This time it is the base Audi R8 rear-wheel drive versus the (almost) range-topping BMW M5 Competition. The two cars couldn’t be more different even if they wanted, which technically, devoids the race of any logic. Still, it’s fun and you want to see what happens.
The Next-Gen C9 RS6 Will Be A Performance Beast Thanks to PHEV Technology
Exactly twenty years ago, Audi debuted its first top-tier high-performance estate with the RS6 nomenclature. Since then, it has been the most potent performance wagon from the Ingolstadt-based carmaker. While the company is seeking full electrification by 2033, it has confirmed that the upcoming generation of the RS6 Avant will feature ‘more hybridization’ before it turns into a full-fledged EV. But the performance is expected to be significantly higher than the generation it will replace.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Audi Q6 E-Tron Sportback
One may argue that this is not the first time we see the next Audi Q6 e-Tron out testing. However, so far, we’ve only seen the Q6 e-Tron as an SUV. But these new spy shots reveal that the Ingolstadt company is also working on a Q6 e-Tron SUV Coupe. With the standard Q6 e-Tron expected to debut sometime in late 2022, the Sportback version will arrive about six months later, so sales should begin in late 2023.

Exclusive: Prestige Imports, Miami - Not Your Typical Supercar Dealership
This is Prestige Imports, one of the nations leading luxury and exotic car dealerships. Based out of Miami, the brand has come a long way since its humble beginnings by its founder Irv David over 45 years ago.

Having been featured in games like Need for Speed, the dealership today enjoys cult status, but getting there wasn’t easy.
2022 Audi RS6 Avant - Performance, Price, and Photos
We always seem to have obsessions with things we can’t have. Since 2003, there hasn’t been an Audi RS6 available in the U.S. Even when we got the first RS6, it wasn’t available as their signature Avant (wagon) model. Then, Audi decided to pull the plug on the second-gen RS6 in America altogether. One generation after another, the U.S. market was left out. Why didn’t we get access to the brand’s most attractive models?
Well, three full generations later, Audi decided to answer the prayers of U.S. fans in celebration of 20 years of the RS6. Finally, the RS6 would make its way back to the U.S. shores, only as an Avant model. Could there be anything more glorious? The muscular proportions of this high-function station wagon are a sight to behold. There are few cars capable of providing the versatility, luxury, and performance of the RS6 Avant. For American customers, the wait may have been long, but it was well worth it.
Say Goodbye to the Infamous inline-five as the Audi RS3 Goes Electric
Audi remains commited to the budget segment exciting with the all-electric A3, despite key rivals, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, leaving the compact car market. A new report from Autocar has now exposed a rumor that the upcoming A3 lineup will let you choose either a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive setup and possibly offer more than 400 miles of range per full charge. But how about the range-topping RS3 model? Audi’s best-selling performance car will ditch the beloved and unique five-cylinder engine for two electric motors - is there more to it than improved acceleration?
Why The Audi R8 V-8 Is An Unsung Hero
The Audi R8 has been the German brand’s flagship, mid-engine sports car since 2006. Despite being on sale for 16 years, its lineup is divided into only two generations – Type 42 (2006 – 2015) and Type 4S (2015 – present). While the R8’s future, together with that of the TT, involves electrification, the R8 is still one of the most desirable sports cars money can buy. And while the V-10 variants are the ones that stole the spotlight, the base V-8 version of the mid-engine sports car has been largely forgotten. Now, we’re going to show you why it’s the R8 V-
2022 Audi RS E-Tron GT - Performance, Price, and Photos
Audi’s performance mindset is clearly on display with its 2022 Audi e-tron GT sedan, capturing the four-ring brand’s gas-powered sport sedans and distilling them into an EV platform without forgetting luxury amenities. This isn’t unfamiliar territory for Audi, as its e-tron crossover models were some of the first to break the ice. Yet, the e-tron GT is seeking sportier pastures and does so by borrowing much of its technology from a fellow member of the VW Group, the Porche Taycan, boasting the same 800-volt architecture capable of giving Audi’s fierce RS7 and RS6 sports cars a run for their money.
Audi and many other luxury automakers are now part of a growing EV conversation, that has grown far beyond the confines of city-dwelling commuter cars. The base model e-tron GT might be the first rung in the ladder, yet it commands a lofty $102,400 starting price. The all-electric e-tron GT incorporates faithful Audi design cues that have attracted fans in droves, employing sleek interior finishes, but leans into new technologies to help propel this low-slung sports car into high-performance realms with ease.

7 Reasons Why the Audi RS6 Avant Is the Perfect Car For All Occasions
The Audi RS6 Avant might very well be the definition of an all-rounder in true sense.

This Audi S8 Has Bugatti Veyron Levels of Power
In the world of modified cars, basically, anything goes, and among the usual suspects like single-turbo Supra builds or 1,500-horsepower GT-Rs, there are those that are more unlikely and unexpected. The YouTube channel Officially Gassed has a proven record of showing us some of the most bonkers builds from the UK (and maybe the world) and this one is no exception.

The ABT RS 3-R is an Audi RS3 With a Major Attitude Problem
The fourth generation Audi RS3 arrived in 2021 and shortly after became the fastest compact car around Nurburgring. While it offers significant updates over the model it replaces, the RS3 can still be improved. Abt Sportline’s latest RS3-R proves just that: there is room for a lot more under the hood of the tiny sedan. This tuned Audi RS3 has 500 horses under the hood and is strictly limited to 200 units.
2022 Audi RS 7 Exclusive Edition Looks Amazing In Mamba Black
Now in its second generation, the Audi RS7 is one of the market’s most popular full-size sports sedans. Launched in 2019 the new RS7 brings a more aggressive exterior look, and an updated, more powerful engine. There aren’t many things you can upgrade for the RS7, so, as expected, any special edition will only bring exterior and interior changes. The latest RS7 exclusive edition will add exclusive design enhancements to the exterior and an updated interior look, but the engine stays the same. Only 23 units will be offered, and Audi will start taking orders in late summer of 2022.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Audi E-Tron GT

It boasts a much more aggressive exterior, a completely redesigned interior packed with premium features and cutting-edge technology, and under the skin lies a more powerful drivetrain with Audi’s legendary Quattro AWD.
10 Greatest Audi Sports Cars Ranked
Audi, the maker of luxurious and sensible AWD sedans and SUVs, has made quite the mark on the global automotive landscape with its cars that are well-engineered, but considered boring. But, it’s not all Audis that suffer from this curse. In the course of its rich history, especially under the Volkswagen Group, Audi has given us some of the sportiest vehicles that have gained a cult status and admiration from petrol heads across the globe. Here’s a look at the 10 greatest Audi sports cars of all time:

Most would argue that Audi’s sportiest model is the $170,000 R8, however, the Audi TT, TTS, or TT RS are all good second choices while theA7, S7, or RS 7 offer a very sporty look if you’re into fastback or “four-door coupe” styling.

It delivers 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-10 and comes packed to the gills with carbon fiber trim, aerodynamic enhancements, and ceramic brakes.
