When Audi built the A1 clubsport quattro for the Austrian enthusiast gathering at Worthersee, it set about construction of the ultimate tuned A1. That car, with full bodywork by the Audi Design Team, 2.5 TFSI swapped engine and quattro before there ever was a production A1 quattro, set afire the hearts of Audi enthusiast around […] More…

It all started with a photo posted on Facebook. At least that’s when it blipped on our radar. A friend who’s a manager at Volkswagen posted a shot of a matte grey R8, likely one of the first examples of Audi’s new Exclusive Selection Edition R8s, casually parked in the back lot of Audi of America’s headquarters in Herndon, Virginia. A week later we’re in Virginia to photograph this recent addition to the Audi of America executive fleet and shortly after detonating our own social media photo bomb on Instagram, an eagle-eyed reader points out that the car is wearing a V10 badge even though V10 examples are supposed to be white. Good point.

There’s no question that the requirements for owning an Audi are either a fair inheritance or attaining the status in life of being a “go-getter”. We’re not sure about his inheritance status and frankly that’s a bit personal to ask, but there’s no need to question Lon Mok’s (a.k.a. bugzy on the Fourtitude forums) status as “go-getter”. The guy not only manages the long-running So-Cal Euro car show, he also splits his time as marketing executive for HRE wheels. What better car then should the guy own for his going and his getting but an S4 Avant… and rolling on custom HRE wheels.

What do you get an Audi enthusiast who has everything? How about a piece of gray market rareness — who wouldn’t want that? Except we wouldn’t exactly call the Audi “S3” you see here gray market. More like off-white, blended with a bit of whatever color represents the aftermarket. Allow us to explain. German tuning […] More…

Boosted Harbinger: Driving MTM’s 430 hp B8 S4 Avant

There was a certain magic about the B5 Audi S4, the twin-turbo V6-powered generation built up until 2002. Forced induction in an all-wheel drive sedan was a novel concept in the days before the rally-inspired WRX or EVO hit American shores. The car was fast, agile and, most important, you could dial up the power […] More…

When Audi introduced the B6 S4 back in 2004, its move to a V8 seemed like the best strategy for taking on its top rival the BMW M3. BMW had been fighting homologation rules, trying to race a V8 powered M3 even though they didn’t yet build such a beast while Audi actually had such […] More…

We at Fourtitude are of the camp that believes a set of HRE Monoblok wheels raises any car’s attractiveness to the next power. In some cases, the right set can even boost it by a factor of three. The B8 A4 isn’t one of those cases. In fact, Audi’s latest, most beautiful A4 ever leaves […] More…

If you don’t remember the SR-71 Blackbird, maybe you missed an important part of your youth. It should be filed somewhere in “badass” portion of your brain, right between the Shelby Cobra and your first Big Wheel. I had a poster of one plastered on my wall and another on display with my collection of […] More…

When you understand the fact that A3 owner Andy Johnson works at the corporate headquarters of APR, it may not be hard to guess just how he might choose to outfit his daily driver. Having recently purchased this phantom-like black-on-black 2007 A3 2.0T, Johnson was looking for improvements and his employer was looking for a […] More…

In 1964, NSU introduced the 4-cylinder successor to the 2-cylinder Prinz IV minicar, the Prinz 1000. The square and upright unibody of the Prinz IV was stretched in all dimensions, but without change in appearance, to provide the basis for the new, larger car. Positioned in the lower end of the middle class of European […] More…
