Maybe it’s just us, but it just looks right and well-proportioned and as of now, those who love oil burners can now buy Audi’s diesel-centric take on performance.
Here’s all you need to know about the SQ5 TDI.
This Audi RS6 GTO Is the Car We All Deserve But Can’t Have
There’s something innate at Volkswagen Group about allowing trainees to develop their own ideas in terms of what a car should look like.
Just look at what Volkswagen has been doing in the past years at Wörthersee, where a wacky Golf is unveiled with clockwork precision every year, and it’s entirely imagined and designed by the brand’s apprentices. And Audi just copied the recipe.
There Could Be a Hidden Meaning Behind Audi Teasing the E-Tron GT With R8 LMS Race Cars
The Audi e-tron GT is all but ready to make its global debut, but the German company is still teasing us with a prototype. Audi’s latest stunt shows the e-tron GT alongside a pack of race-spec R8 LMS models at the infamous Spa Francorchamps track. The gathering took place a couple of days before the 2020 24 Hours of Spa kicked off, so this is more than just a regular teaser. But what is Audi trying to say?
700 Horsepower - Is That Enough for the Audi RS E-Tron GT?
Audi’s incoming e-tron GT, a car that’s been developed side by side with Porsche’s Taycan, is slated for a debut next year. Therefore, the 2021 e-tron GT will share the same 800-volt electric architecture like the Taycan, and previous rumors tipped it to produce in the region of 590 horsepower.
A new report from AutoExpress, however, speaks about a power output of around 700 horsepower. Could this be unlocked via a high-spec model sitting at the very top of the e-tron GT range? It’s possible, but we’re still waiting to hear more from Audi on that front.
2021 Audi RS Q8 by ABT
ABT Sportsline is back again, this time giving a twist to Audi’s performance SUV, the RS Q8. The aftermarket company has worked on a lot of Audi models in the past, and this time it is the SUV’s turn. Not too long ago, the company turned the RS4 wagon into a different beast. This time, ABT is offering two different packages, offering a significant increase in the power outputs over the stock numbers. There are a lot more goodies, like new wheels and exhaust system, that feature along with the package.
The Audi E-Tron GT Isn’t Here Yet, But an E-Tron GT RS Is Already In the Works
Tesla is still ruling the electric sedan field with the incredible Model S, but the American carmaker is now facing competition from Porsche, which is already offering the Taycan. Audi will join the battle soon with the e-tron GT and we just learned that the German company is also working on a hardcore RS version of the all-electric four-door. The e-tron GT is scheduled to go into production in 2020, so Audi will unveil the EV by the end of the year.
2021 Audi RS4-S Avant By ABT
ABT’s love for Audi continues, and this time, the result is a quicker and more powerful RS4 Avant. Called the RS4-S, the German wagon has been given some steroids and additional equipment by the Kempten-based aftermarket tuner.
Apart from the power boost, the RS4 also comes with an ABT exhaust system, carbon fiber elements, new wheels, and so on. Is this one of the best aftermarket RS4s we’ve seen in recent times?
The BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC Coupe Just Got Some New Competition
2021 Audi E-Tron GT
Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.
Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.
Update 9-18-2020: The Audi E-Tron GT was spotted in the wild yet again, and it looks like it’s ready to make its long-awaited debut. Check out the new spy shots below!
2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition
There’s no denying that the Audi RS6 Avant is one hell of a beast. With almost 600 horses under the hood, this wagon can hit the 60 mph mark in no time. Such is its popularity that it has even become a popular vehicle amongst tuners.
It didn’t have a presence in the U.S. until now, but the automaker decided to bring it to our shores as well. Earlier this year, the German automaker announced the six-digit pricing for the U.S.-spec RS6 Avant. To make RS6 Avant’s arrival here even special, Audi has announced a limited-edition RS6 Avant “Tribute Edition” that pays homage to the yesteryear RS2 Avant.
Is This Video Proof That the First-Gen Audi S8 Was The Best Luxury Performance Car Ever?
There’s a lot of argument today when it comes to picking the best RS car Audi ever produced. Old-school gearheads claim it’s the RS2 Avant because it was produced with help from Porsche, while others claim the old RS models are no match for the modern variants.
But people seem to forget that Audi also built performance versions of its full-size sedan, the A8. Granted, the S8 isn’t a full-fledged RS model, but it packs a big punch and it combines it with luxury features in a unique way. The S8 badge goes back to the first-generation D2, a sedan that doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
The Audi E-Tron S Is Still Heavy, But It Makes Up For That Weight with Ample Amounts of Power and Torque
The Audi e-tron has been on the market since last year, and it’s received positive feedback overall. This was the German automaker’s first mainstream volume EV and the company managed to cover all the bases quite well, except for the range. Earlier this month, the Audi unveiled the ‘S’ version of the e-tron that comes with more power. The ‘S’ badge is slapped on the SUV as well as the Sportback body type. It comes with better performance specs, an extra motor, and a few dimensional tweaks.
