The generally gregarious and often joking Audi Sport factory R18 driver is one of Audi’s fastest wheel men, but also an avid car collector. Prized among his collection and often his ride Spa is his Audi Sport quattro. More…

When we first hatched the idea for our Audi Driver series, the idea was simply to highlight interesting people who own the cars we love. Often this means the person is a celebrity, actor or athlete. Fame isn’t the only thing that makes people interesting and worth reading about though, and that is well exemplified by R8 owner Wayne Simpson.

Okay, so near as we can tell there’s no overt tie between Audi and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. Yes, Iron Man and Audi have been synonymous in the movies about that lone character, but there’s no official tie with Ingolstadt and this latest hero flick. Even still, we’re counting Audi-owning Robert Downey Jr. and his on screen alter ego Tony Stark as part of the four ring family and as such we wanted to get the word out about a contest RDJ is doing to benefit one of his favorite charities.

Turns out BMW Super Bowl Ad Star Katie Couric Drives an Audi. Oops.

Maybe it’s the recent bad press for the NFL or maybe it’s just a change after years of going with the same play, but Audi made Super Bowl news this year by sitting out the opportunity to run a commercial during the big game. Turns out BMW has decided to follow that strategy instead, running an ad for the i3 starring former Today Show hosts Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel. None of that was really newsworthy on these pages, that is until Couric went on the Today show in order to talk about the commercial… and her Audi. More…

If you were ever curious as to what we’d do if we had unlimited funds, look no further than Jon Olsson’s car collection.  Over the past few years, he has become notorious for driving highly modified Audis, Lamborghinis, and even something of his own creation to tool about town, regardless of weather conditions.  As a […] More…

Audi A2 as Film Set for Taylor Swift BBC Radio 1 ‘Blank Space’ Short

In case you’re not up on your pop culture, pop music dominatrix Taylor Swift has a new album out called 1989 and, like her head explodingly catchy song ‘Shake it Off’, takes on the stereotype of being boy crazy. That perceived insanity may be brilliance though, in the level of self awareness of her public persona exemplified on her latest hit single ‘Blank Space’ is anything to go by. That last single is the one that’s getting all the airplay right now, and as such BBC Radio 1 personality Greg James had Swift recently filmed a YouTube short of himself and Swift rolling around London in an Audi A2 lip syncing the song.

No doubt one of the most illustrious Audi enthusiasts and owners out there has to be Jon Olsson. In addition to his celebrity athlete status as professional skier and X-gamer, Olsson’s also had a long list of amazingly built cars with Audi DNA. First came a camo Lamborghini, then a supercharged widebody Audi R8, then a Lambo/Audi V10-powered Radical road going LMP car and finally his RS 6 Avant. That last car served as a chase car in this year’s Gumball Rally, though it was just so good that Jon’s put it under the knife for a much more extensive build.

Yes, we all know Iron Man drives an Audi R8. Ingolstadt’s cars have been making cameos in Iron Man movies since the very beginning, and we’d surprised if that were to change at any point. However, a more real life question might be just what the actor who plays Iron Man drives in real life. For that we turn to an in-depth feature in this month’s Vanity Fair magazine and also available HERE. More…

When pro skier and Gumball rallyist Jon Olsson started doing his cars up in snow camo wraps, it just sort of made sense. I mean, the guy is a Red Bull sponsored skier and so the snow theme is legit. Then he painted his house in the same look, and Audi Sweden opted to work with him on a limited edition A4 Avant… and then everyone seemingly started building snow camo cars.
