Playing on the fact that the Audi R10 TDI changed a few things when it arrived on the racing scene with its diesel engine, the shirt’s designer played on the oil-burner stigma. “Dr. Ullrich’s World Famous Tractor Races” suggests something that the state-of-the-art R10 TDIs couldn’t have been further from.

While some may grouse about model proliferation, you won’t find us doing it. The fact of the matter is that the early ‘90s for Audi with solely its 90 and 100 based models was a very dark year for the company. Today, with 50 some models, the brand is selling record numbers and there is much more selection for Audi buyers than ever before. Along those lines then, we’ve no doubt that there’ll be even more discussion about new intel from CAR Magazine confirming that 10 more Audi models will launch between now and 2020.

Depending on who you ask, cars with automated or piloted driving is either a hot new technology that’s either just down the road, or perhaps already arrived. Google made big news when it sent out a group of driverless Toyota Prii in a grand experiment and plans oval-shaped controlless cars in just a few short years, while Audi and partners at the Volkswagen Group and Stanford University have been tackling places like Pike’s Peak with a driverless TT.
