We’ve no doubt we’ll both grab your attention and maybe throw up an air of skepticism when we tell you that what started life as a lowly European B2 Audi Coupe quattro will run you €185,000.00. Yes, that’s a stiff number and yes, it’s nearly as expensive as an original Sport quattro. Even still, this may be one of the most bonkers Audi S1 replica builds going.

Earlier today we reported on the new TT Illustrated magazine published by Audi to coincide with the launch of the latest third-generation TT range. For enthusiasts, the magazine is a veritable treasure trove of little information. In particular, the story whereby designer Freeman Thomas returns to the studios of the Audi Design Team grabbed us not just for the content, but also for the design drawings shared from Thomas’ original notebooks.

The years leading up to the 2008 economic crash were halcyon era for the auto industry. Car companies swallowed others to become juggernaut multi-nationals, while niche luxury brands were snapped up most quickly and still more then-defunct brands were dusted off. BMW snagged Rolls-Royce, Mercedes resurrected Maybach. Of course we know the Volkswagen Group had Bentley and eventually re-launched Bugatti, but was that all? This concept model we spotted on a past trip to Ingolstadt suggests a re-launching of Horch was very much considered.

Audi Germany has released a series of photos that offer an interesting visual comparison of the new and improved Audi S7 with the 1970s era 100 Coupé S. Though decidedly different beasts from even more decidedly different eras, the inspiration for the S7 becomes very obvious when you look at it in this context. More…

When the Brazilian football team first won the World Cup in 1958, South America’s largest and most populous country was at the dawning of a new era. Football star Pelé rocketed to fame, the architect Oscar Niemeyer designed the new capital city Brasilia as a modern utopia, and the bossa nova sound spread all over the world from the Copacabana. How Auto Union GmbH from Ingolstadt accompanied this new dawn with its DKW cars is illustrated in the latest special exhibition at the Audi museum mobile: “Ordem & Progresso – DKW VEMAG and the new dawn in Brazil” (May 21 to September 21, 2014). “Order and Progress” is the official motto of Brazil.
