If there was a theme to the arrival of Audi’s new TT-based roadster on the marque’s stand at the Paris Auto Show then that must be Sport. For one, the only two roadsters shown were both the more sporting TTS models. For another, the Vegas Yellow example that drove through puffy clouds of dry ice vapor carried Bayern Münich midfielder Mario Götze. More…

Volkswagen XL Sport 634 600x300 photo

It was perhaps not the best kept secret that Volkswagen planned a more sporting variant of its ultra-lightweight and ultra-efficient XL1 model. With the XL1, Volkswagen managed the fabled 1-Liter of consumption for 100 KM travelled, but this mid-engine carbon fiber chassis car was designed to be super frugal and thus far from sporting. Then […] More…

Audi causes gas station attendant’s family to starve. That was the message of the preview movie (and likely also commercial) for the new Audi A6 TDI ultra. The commercial may be in jest, but its ability to get 56 MPG when fitted with 2.0 TDI engine is no joke.

Those savvy to discussion forums like our own H20-focused event forum, can tell you that specialty gatherings and meet-ups are a particular highlight. In as much, we headed over to Saturday’s Audi owner meet-up in the parking lot of the mall at 94th Street and Ocean City’s Coastal Highway. Needless to say, we weren’t disappointed. More…
