“How do I get to Mullholland from here?”, I yelled quizzically  into the garage of an old school gas station that still does repairs. “Uh”, the attendant replied, “you can either go left or right… you’ll run into it eventually.” My mouth said “thanks”, but my mind was subconsciously muttering something comprised of four letters.  The smugness […] More…

Recently we were on location in Dresden, Germany for the launch of the new and updated Audi A6. For Americans, this meant the presence of the new A6 2.0 TFSI and the S6 sedan, though other European market cars like the A6 Avant and A6 allroad were also on hand. Amongst the Euro-only models was the first real world example we’ve seen of the new A6 TDI competition.

We reported earlier today that we were en route traveling and transitioning between Lufthansa planes in Munich. Turns out our second flight was delayed, and while that would normally be an annoyance, it becomes a treat on this Halloween since we’re in Munich. You see, there’s an Audi Forum here at the airport and we always like to scope it out.

Audi R8 e-tron Spotted at Building A50 in Ingolstadt

No doubt about it, the first place we always go when we arrive at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt is building A50. Unlike the round glass-enclosed museum mobile with its paternoster car rotisserie, Cafe A51 that’ll make you a cappuccino with a four-ring dusting of cocoa, the rather nondescript building A50 is where Audi’s board members work. As such, this is also where they park their cars… just outside the door. More…

Say you’re headed over to Bavaria or, even better, about to take European delivery of your new Audi? If so, you’ll undoubtedly be heading for the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. While there, as we were last week, we’d highly suggest a visit to the Audi Collection shop in order to pick up some hard-to-find Audi gear. More…

If you’ve never swung by Audi of America headquarters in Herndon, VA and visited the ground floor public access Audi Forum, you’re missing out. The space is essentially the lobby level and always boasts the brand’s latest and greatest models, usually including a race car like the Audi R18 or Audi R10 TDI. Even better, we’re hearing there’s a new emphasis on Audi exclusive builds so we stopped in to take a closer look.

The rather nondescript-looking high-rise form of building A50 bordering the Audi Forum Ingolstadt’s expansive piazza almost always marks one of our favorite places to visit when in Audi’s home town. While the glass-enclosed paternoster of the museum mobile or the delivery center exhaling a fresh-new Audi every couple minutes are meant to draw your attention, A50… or just in front of A50… is where the Audi board members often park. As such, anyone with an eagle eye can often spot some terribly interesting vehicles on any given day.
