2021 Audi TT Coupé and Roadster bronze selection

2021 Audi TT Coupé and Roadster bronze selection

New add-on package adds a touch of class to the Audi TT

The current-generation Audi TT is already long in the tooth, having been around since 2014. While there are talks of a next-generation TT in the pipeline, that model isn’t expected to arrive for at least a few more years. In the meantime, Audi will continue freshening the current TT with a bevy of special edition models, including the new “bronze selection” that’s scheduled to hit European markets in the spring of 2021.

Packing visual upgrades of the burnished chestnut persuasion, the special edition model is available in the coupe and roadster versions of the TT and TTS via a bronze selection package that you can add to the cost of the sports car.

More power and slicker looks for the European Audi TTS

700 Horsepower - Is That Enough for the Audi RS E-Tron GT?

700 Horsepower - Is That Enough for the Audi RS E-Tron GT?

Even more, is that enough to pique the customer’s interest?

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 TT RS 40 Years of Quattro

2021 Audi TT RS 40 Years of Quattro

New special edition TT RS celebrates Audi’s greatest innovation

Audi is famous for a lot of innovations in the history of the auto industry, but none have been as impactful to the automaker as the quattro all-wheel-drive system. Introduced at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, the quattro all-wheel-drive system has become a foundational piece of all of Audi’s road-going performance cars.

It’s only right that with the quattro system celebrating its 40th anniversary, Audi is launching a special edition TT RS to commemorate the occasion. The special edition model is called the 40 Years of quattro, as fitting a name as any SE model Audi has released in recent memory.

2021 Audi R8 RWD Coupe and Spyder

The Audi R8 RWD returns as a full-scale production model

The 2021 Audi R8 RWD is a rear-wheel-drive version of the German-made R8 supercar. Essentially a regular Audi R8 stripped of its Quattro all-wheel-drive system, the 2021 R8 RWD comes with the same 5.2-liter V-10 engine under the hood and similar features inside and out.

The big news is that the RWD model is notably lighter and a bit more affordable. The 2021 R8 RWD isn’t the first R8 with rear-wheel drive, but it’s the first RWD that’s s regular production model. Back in 2018 offered the R8 RWS, also an RWD variant, but it was limited to just 320 examples. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.

2021 Audi R8 Green Hell Edition

2021 Audi R8 Green Hell Edition

German automaker celebrates Nurburgring dominance with a spicy special edition R8

The Nurburgring is arguably the world’s most famous race track, and if that distinction is attached to your name, automakers are likely to come up with any reason to release special edition models in your name. Take Audi, for example. The German automaker carries one of the richest racing legacies on the ‘Ring.

Since 2012, Audi has dominated the Green Hell, winning the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race five times. Not one to be bashful about its achievements, Audi is celebrating those victories with a special edition R8 called the Green Hell.

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

A beautiful all-electric four-door coupé that’ll take Audi one step above

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

2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition

The Tribute Edition features only aesthetic changes and is limited to merely 25 examples

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.

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Can Hold Its Own Against the Porsche 911 and Audi R8

The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Can Hold Its Own Against the Porsche 911 and Audi R8

The C8 Corvette Isn’t Quite As Fast As the Porsche 911 and Audi R8, But It Can Keep Up

The mid-engine C8 Corvette has literally been decades in the making. When it arrived for the 2021 model year, the Corvette found itself competing against some new competition that at one time were little more than distant competitors. The Corvette name has always been associated with performance, but now that it has to take on a long list of European competitors, we – like the rest of you – have been wondering just how well the C8 can hold up. Now, thanks to a new video from Sport Auto, we can see how the C8 fairs against the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 V-10 on the track, and you have to see what happens.

An Audi RS3 Rolling Down the Road, On Fire Is the Scariest Thing You'll See This Week

An Audi RS3 Rolling Down the Road, On Fire Is the Scariest Thing You’ll See This Week

The last place you’d want to be in is inside this car

Street racing can be fun and exhilarating, but it can also be dangerous. It only takes one thing to go wrong for Murphy’s Law to kick in, and the last place you’d want to be in is inside a car when that happens. A pair of street racers found that out first-hand when the heavily souped-up 1,100-horsepower Audi RS3 they were in caught fire while they were running at 150 mph.

Worse, the fire quickly burned through the RS3’s brake lines and e-brakes and the drag parachute couldn’t be deployed, leaving them in a state of helplessness as thick smoke started to come out of the A/C vents. Yes, street racing can be fun and exhilarating, but it only takes one thing to turn that rush into all-around terror.

This Video of the Audi RS6 Is Better Than Anything Audi’s Marketing Division Has Ever Done

It’s going to leave you breathless and jonesing for your own Audi RS6 Avant

This promotional video of the new Audi RS6 Avant comes by way of Australian publication The Lowdown, which specializes in automotive lifestyle. The agency got its hands on an all-new 2020 Audi RS6 Avant, and, in tune with its creative roots, proceeded to create a 105-second promotional video starring the high-powered German wagon.

The result is a video that’s going to leave you breathless. At the very least, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better one that Audi has done in recent memory.

Be Prepared to Say Goodbye to the Audi R8 and TT

Be Prepared to Say Goodbye to the Audi R8 and TT

Audi Could Send The Audi R8 and TT to the Grinder in the Name of Cutting Costs

Remember when I told you that Audi Sport will phase out ICE-power RS models? Well, now thanks to the same cost-cutting measures – probably thanks to parent company VolkswagenAudi may be forced to either axe two of its most important models or do something new with them entirely. Regardless of what happens, it certainly looks like the Audi R8 and TT won’t be sticking around too much longer, at least not as we know them today, anyway.

Kick Off Your Weekend By Watching an Audi R8 Take on an Audi TT RS-R

Kick Off Your Weekend By Watching an Audi R8 Take on an Audi TT RS-R

This sibling rivalry suddenly becomes more competitive

On paper, the stock Audi TT RS is no match to the Audi R8 V-10 Plus. One car is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI engine that produces 394 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the other car packs a 5.2-liter FSI V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque.

You can’t dispute those figures, especially when you race both Audis against each other. So why did Carwow bother to race a TT RS against an R8 V10 Plus? The answer is the TT RS-R, the heavily modified version of the sports coupe.

Here’s How a 2013 Audi RS5 Stacks Up Against a 2020 Audi RS5 Sportback

Let us say that the 2013 RS5 aged very well

Audi RS5Bridging the generation gap between two performance-focused models, one that’s older and one that’s newer, is never an easy task for carmakers. The newcomer is expected to be better in every aspect, but what happens when the old one is still capable of exciting the senses?

Throttle House’s new versus old Audi RS5 head-to-head makes for a neat case study.

You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again

You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again

The RWD Audi R8 soldiered on in Europe and now it looks like it’s coming back to the U.S.

Remember back in 2018 when Audi released the Audi R8 V10 RWS in a limited production run of just 999 examples? It didn’t last long here in the States, but Audi kept it as a main part of its lineup over in Europe. Now, three years later, a new listing on the EPA’s fueleconomy.gov website hints that it’s making a comeback to the U.S. Market in both coupe and convertible form.

The Audi RS Q5 Could Finally Come to Take on the BMW BMW X4 M and AMG GLC 63

Ingolstadt might have plans to fight back the power crossover craze with a souped-up Q5

BMW has the X4 M and X3 M. Mercedes-AMG concocted the GLC 63. Alfa Romeo has the Stelvio Quadrifoglio. And so far, Audi didn’t come with a its own soldier to fight these competitors, but if recent details hold any truth, that’s about to change.

When you need a family hauler and a mighty powerful beast in one package

The Audi RS6 Avant is arguably one of the hottest wagons on sale today. This powerful family hauler seems to be every tuner’s wet dream these days. One such aftermarket company is the Kempten-based ABT. ABT is known to give a twist to almost all the Volkswagen Group cars.

ABT decided to work on this wagon again by equipping it with the Power R performance upgrade and calling it the ABT RS6-R. Amongst all the other cosmetic upgrades and carbon fiber treatments, the wagon also benefits from 50 extra horses over the ABT RS6. Do we like it all the more now? Hell yeah!

1,300-HP Audi TT RS Is Faster Than Your Dream Car

This one really goes like hell

These days, anything’s possible in the world of tuning. But you already knew that. What you didn’t know was that someone built a 1,300-horsepower Audi TT RS that can pull off mad half-mile runs.

2021 Audi e-tron GT: Everything We Know So Far

Audi’s hotter e-tron is supposed to debut this year, but don’t hold your breath

Audi showed the e-tron GT conceptback in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The road-going version of this prototype is expected to debut this year in LA, but until that happens, the world needs to figure out the coronavirus outbreak and Audi has to apply the finishing touches on its new performance EV.

2020 Audi RS Q8

2020 Audi RS Q8

Lambo spirit, German refinement

The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the high-performance version of the Audi Q8. The latter was introduced as a competitor for the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, so the 2020 RS Q8 competes against the BMW X6 M and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe. The 2020 Audi RS Q8 also goes against the Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe,, which is built around similar underpinnings. The 2020 RS Q8 stands out in this segment thanks to its unique design, but the engine is another highlight. That’s because the 2020 Audi RS Q8 is powered by a mildly detuned version of the 4.0-liter V-8 found in the Lamborghini Urus. With almost 600 horsepower at its disposal, the 2020 Audi RS Q8 is one of the quickest SUVs in this niche. Let’s find out more about that in the comprehensive review below.

The Audi RS 5 Won't Make a Fool of Itself in Front of the Porsche 911

The Audi RS 5 Won’t Make a Fool of Itself in Front of the Porsche 911

We must say, that Audi RS 5 is darn impressive in a straight line

These two cars come from the same, larger automotive group umbrella, yet their personalities are so different that a drag race between them almost doesn’t make any sense.

Carwow, however, pitted the Audi RS 5 Sportback and the Porsche 911 Carrera S against each other and we are glad they did - and so must be Audi - because the race shows just how quick the RS 5 is in the company of a thoroughbred sports car like the Neunelfer, which also happens to pack a vicious Launch Control feature.
