For all its Group B excellence and the revolution that was Quattro AWD, Audi never managed to win Africa’s Safari Rally during rallying’s wildest years. It wouldn’t be until 1987, with a 200 Quattro driven by flying Finn, Hannu Mikkola, that Audi would finally win the African event. The race, held in Kenya in 1987, […] More…

During a recent trip to Japan, the folks at Work Wheels invited me to visit their headquarters in Osaka, and as a self-confessed wheel whore, of course I had to accept. It got even better when local friend, and owner of H-Sport in Kyoto, Hideki Fukui offered to drive me there from Kyoto in his […] More…

For Audi enthusiasts, there’s no car more iconic than the S4. First seen in 1992 as the UR-S4 and later as the iconic B-segment car in 1999, the B5 Audi S4 launched with a twin-turbo V6 as a response to the M3. To make it Audi engineers stuffed a 2.7-liter V6, 6-speed manual transmission, sport […] More…

2018 Audi RS 3 Review rear low 3q 600x300 photo

The Audi RS 3 is surprisingly engaging and fun to drive, something that you can’t say about a lot of other Audis. Audi’s RS models are very fast and feature an advanced all-wheel drive system, so they feel very sure-footed, which is great for driver confidence and bad weather, but perhaps not the best for getting giggles […] More…

This bright green Audi RS 3 sedan I’m piloting is a very fast small car that makes awesome, playful noises. But unlike Audi sport models of old, this one can slide through corners up and down the Dhofar mountains of Oman. If you think too hard about all that, it may boggle the mind. Who […] More…

It takes a certain kind of person to want a convertible. Unapologetic, extrovert, Thelma and Louise types hell bent on getting noticed and having adventures that will make killer stories later. Ripping through the Spanish countryside driving the all-new 2018 Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets, people are trying to sneak photos of our convertibles, cheering […] More…

The Arrival “Is this little red car for you?” asks the shuttle bus driver for the long-term parking at Austin-Bergstrom airport. It was. Audi was kind enough to leave me the keys to a 2017 R8 V10 plus for the week. I opened the front luggage compartment and crossed my fingers that my suitcase would […] More…

As part of our long-term test of the Audi A4, we wanted to challenge it against the class leaders, and the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class dominate the small luxury segment.

With this generation, the Audi A4 might just be going through an existential crisis. A conservatively designed sedan with a luxurious interior and a premium badge on the nose is a luxury car right? Then why is it that every time I get in and drive, there is something about it that just makes me […] More…

The new Audi A4 is one of the most praised vehicles on the road. From generally positive reviews, to reviewers calling it the best car Audi’s ever made, it’s fair to say that it’s been a critical darling. And, honestly, I’m not sure why. You probably shouldn’t listen to those reviews, because it isn’t the […] More…
