The Tesla Model S Plaid Should Be Sued For Emotionally Scarring This Tuned Audi RS3!

The Audi RS3 is no slouch, but this Model S Plaid has made an absolute mockery of it

After wreaking havoc on sports cars and supercars in 2021, the Tesla Model S Plaid’s drag domination continues in 2022, starting with the Audi RS3. Sam uploaded a video of the Tesla Plaid taking on a tuned Audi RS3 on his YouTube channel ‘Sam CarLegion’. The result? Calling it a loss for the RS3 would be an understatement!

Is This Audi R8 RWD GT the Very Last Version of the R8 as we Know it?

Is This Audi R8 RWD GT the Very Last Version of the R8 as we Know it?

We could expect an R8 with around 600 horsepower

Everyone knows that Audi R8 lives on borrowed time. A successor will happen, but not as we know it:->art193913] reports suggest that the next R8 will drop the current V-10 engine and will be offered with an electric powertrain. That decision comes because Audi wants to go all-electric by 2026.

However, until that happens, Audi is preparing one last hooray for the current generation R8. Our spy photographers caught an R8 test mule testing during winter conditions and it is believed to be the R8 RWD GT.

Is It Fair To Pit A Full-Blown Audi RS Performance Model Against A BMW M440i Gran Coupe?

Can an Audi RS5 beat the BMW M440i, or will the latter embarrass the performance Audi model?

Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ brought two German beasts to the drag strip for another fascinating race. This time, it’s the Audi RS5 versus the BMW M440i Gran Coupe. While the M440i is a sporty version of a regular trim, the RS5 is a full-blown performance model. The latter even makes more power and weighs less. Do you think the BMW stands a chance here?

Watch This 950-HP Audi RS7 Breach The 200 MPH Mark On The Autobahn Like It's No Big Deal

Watch This 950-HP Audi RS7 Breach The 200 MPH Mark On The Autobahn Like It’s No Big Deal

At around 206 mph, the car seems to hit a speed limiter even though it seems to have a lot of grunt left

The folks at ‘AutoTopNL’ got hold of a tuned Audi RS7 and took it for a spin at the Autobahn. They have tested the same RS7 in the past as well, but back then it was tuned to make just 750 horses. This time, it makes 200 horses more and goes all the way up to 200 mph before losing breath. Care for some cargasm?

The 2022 Audi R8 Performance V-10 RWD Is Improved In Every Aspect, Including More Power!

The 2022 Audi R8 Performance V-10 RWD Is Improved In Every Aspect, Including More Power!

The 2022 Audi R8 Performance RWD now comes with a Variable Dynamic Steering setup and 40 horses more than before

The Audi R8 has been a staple when one talks about performance cars. The car comes with a naturally aspirated V-10 that makes us go weak in the knees even today. We are even more emotionally invested in it now because the R8 is about to be electrified and the V-10 engine will be buried forever. The same engine powers the Lamborghini Huracan as well, but the marque is working on developing a twin-turbo V-8 successor for it. But, until the final adieu, Audi will try to milk the machine as much as possible, and the latest updates to it are a testament to that.

Watch A Porsche Panamera Take On A BMW M5 CS, An AMG E63, And An Audi RS6 In A Drag Race

All the cars are powered by a V-8 engine and make north of 2,500 horses combined!

Mat Watson and his team from ’Carwow’ got four cars to the drag strip for an all-German drag race. The contenders included the Audi RS6, the BMW M5 CS, the Mercedes-AMG E63, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. All the cars feature V-8 engines and two turbochargers. The Porsche goes in the races with a slight advantage, thanks to the electric motor assisting the engine and helping it make the most horses here. But, it’s a double-edged sword as the motor and batteries make it the heaviest. Which car do you think will dominate the races?

This Outrageously Tuned Audi RS6 Avant Is Stupid Fast

If the Audi RS6 Avant wasn’t already close enough to being a supercar in disguise for you, then this build will probably make you happy

The newest iteration of the Audi RS6 Avant is a brutal beast of a car with a 4.0-liter V-8 that pumps out 592 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque – enough to make it a rival for some of the world’s greatest supercars. So, you could coin the RS6 Avant as a supercar in disguise, but what if you want more? Well, you could get in touch with Pacific German and VF Engineering to have them build you a one-off like the one you see in this video from Auditography.

2021 Audi R8 V-10 Performance RWD

Audi has replaced the R8 RWD with a ‘Performance RWD’ model that takes place of the erstwhile entry-level Quattro V-10 model

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The Audi R8 Bloodline Carries On - Maybe Even As An EV

The future of Audi R8 is uncertain, but reports suggest it may become a hybrid or even fully electric by 2023

With a few exceptions, Audi is a brand that makes luxury cars that, for the most part, feature a rather unremarkable design. While that changed in the last few years, one model that has always been exciting is the Audi R8. Since its debut, in 2006, the mid-engine model hasn’t experienced any radical changes. However a few months ago, Hildegard Wortmann – Audi’s global chief of sales and marketing – stated that the Audi R8 “is an icon of the past, not necessarily the future”. This points to the R8 nearing the end of its lifespan in order to make room for something new.

The new RS3 won’t make its official debut until sometime in July, but thanks to Auditography, we get to see what the production model looks like in some cool camo.
