Just in case you’ve been looking for another reason to pick up Forza Motorsport 5 for Xbox One, it turns out the current RS 4 Avant was added to the latest expansion pack of cars. Even better, unlike previous LMP Audis that have popped up in a similar fashion in recent packs, the RS 4 can be cherry-picked. There’s no need to download all of the cars if this is the only one you really feel the need to buy.

Ever heard of Waze? I had. Just barely. It’s a navigation app available for Apple iOS, Android or Windows Phone, but with Google Maps and Apple’s own native navigation app already installed on my iPhone, adding another seemed redundant. What’s the point? Then I tried it, and we’re quickly becoming enamored.

Back in May, Audi released a television spot dubbed It Couldn’t Be Done as part of a ‘Truth in Engineering’ campaign at the time. The spot used a poem by Edgar Guest as the basis for a Suess-like take on the Audi story, backed as it was with historical imagery from the brand’s long heritage. Though it may not have immediately looked the part, that the ad had a storybook feel to it apparently wasn’t lost on Audi’s marketing people and thus a new children’s storybook illustrated by Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative has been created.

What can we say? We were completely enamored by the black test car livery shown on the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro this week.

Recently we published our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, though we’ve found another very cool item that would be perfect for a ginormous Audi enthusiast.

The jersey is signed by a serious list of Audi’s 2013 Le Mans teams. Even better, all proceeds from the shirt go to charity.
