If their yearly BBQ’s attendance is any indication of business, things are going quite well at Willow Grove, Pennsylvania’s AWE Tuning.  Leveraging industry connections and a strong customer base, AWE Tuning’s event was markedly larger than past years with many european marques well represented. It isn’t just about the cars though.  AWE Tuning takes full advantage of […] More…

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.

Not only is the Audi Forum Neckarsulm one of our favorite places to visit in Germany, the Audi Forum Neckarsulm Facebook fan page is one of our favorite places to visit on the web. Why? More like why not when they’re constantly posting photo sets like this Audi Exclusive RS 4 Avant in handsome Venetian Violet pearl effect.

Located in Willow Grove just on the outskirts of Philadelphia, PA is AWE Tuning. This Audi tuning firm may best be known for its extensive line of go-fast parts for your Audi and specifically its full line of exhaust manufactured in-house. The company’s facility is certainly an impressive one and as such they open it each year and invite owners down to see what AWE is all about and also maybe enjoy barbecue. More…

Last month we were traveling through Munich and took a few minutes to pass through the Audi Forum there. Located on the upper level between the two main terminals at the Munich Airport, the place is a must visit for Audi aficionado travelers either headed to Ingolstadt or just passing through the place. In addition to a fully-stocked Audi Collection shop and a equally stocked wall of European market sales literature, the spot always seems to sport the latest and greatest Audi offerings and usually in some sort of Audi Exclusive paint scheme.

Any visit to the towering Audi Forum Neckarsulm should begin at the Audi Exclusive showroom on the facility’s second floor. The space is used by quattro GmbH to show off its tailoring capabilities and as such the mix of cars is usually rife with very unlikely colors, equipment and materials. Most attention-grabbing this particular week was one yellow S5 Cabriolet.

It was a bit of a surprise that the limited edition Audi TTS competition celebrating 500,000 numbers of TTs produced wasn’t on hand in Frankfurt at the motor show last week. First PR photos and details of the car trickled out ahead of the German motor show, yet no car could be found on the Audi stand. Fortunately, we visited the Audi Forum Neckarsulm one day later and happened to find one of the first production examples just moved in to the Audi Exclusive showroom there.

As mentioned, we happened to be at last weekend’s Porsche Club of America swapmeet in Hershey, PA last weekend and followed our usual ritual of spotting cool Audis that are quite common in the parking lot of this German car enthusiast-rich event. While doing so we stumbled across this interesting blue R8 V8 coupe most obviously custom tailored by Audi Exclusive.

It’s not like RS2 Avants are unheard of in America. We’ve seen them before, from a mysterious pearl white example registered in western Pennsylvania to one or two that have made their way into Canada. Even still, these ur-RS cars from Audi that were actually built and apparently stylized by Porsche (not quattro GmbH) were never sold in America. They’re also not on the NHTSA list of importable vehicles either, which makes them damn near unobtainium. So, when one shows up as one did before our eyes this past weekend at a Porsche Club Swapmeet in Pennsylvania, it was a newsworthy event.
