We understand the frustrations of not being able to afford the car of your dreams. Trust us, if we had the money, we’d be flaunting around our Audi R8s instead of writing about them. That being said, we’ve come to grips with the reality that our dream cars are nothing more than that: dreams. So we’ve lowered our standards a little bit and settled for playing with online configurators of our favorite rides.

It’s not really as awesome as having one tucked in your garage, but it’s still better than nothing. So if you’re like the rest of us that can only play around with our favorite Audis through the power of a few mouse clicks, Audi’s online Konfigurator is about as good as it gets.

Not only does it offer you the chance to tinker with a wide range of Audis - the whole fleet is actually configurable - but it also challenges you to learn to understand German better. So what if you don’t understand what the konfigurator is asking you to do? The power of imagination knows no bounds!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Basically, that would be the purpose of configurator to help the customer decide on what car to buy. And its a sort of entertaining purpose as well.

I have tried the configurator by myself and I would say that I was amazed on how it works! There were label that indicate a little preview for the certain specs. BTW, I think it would be better if we can print out the output.

I have tried this all by myself and its fun though I cant understand the German part. However, I find it enjoyable and I do hope that they will add more features in this configurator.

Dreaming would be great but making it for real would be awesome! This application would be entertaining. Can’t wait to try it myself.

I think configurators are being a trend now. Roll Royce Ghost has been using to allow the customer to design their own car. Well, i think this application would be more useful when they use that for the same idea.

I think this is the trending stuff nowdays. Many of automakers uses Configurator for contest or just for fun.
