2014 WEC The Prologue Preseason Test Audi 299 600x300 photo

posted by on 14 April 2014 in Motorsport

This is a change of historic proportions: The new regulations of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) force the automobile manufacturers to use significantly less fuel than last year. The new rules will come into effect at the Silverstone (GB) season opener on April 20. Audi is tackling the challenge as the 2012 and 2013 World Champions with a newly designed R18 e-tron quattro and two strong driver lineups. Besides demonstrating their driving skills in the race they will also have to make their personal contribution to efficiency – not least due to the fact that, following an adjustment of the regulations on short notice, race cars with diesel engines like the R18 e-tron quattro are subject to another reduction of fuel-energy compared to competitors using gasoline engines.

Our latest installment of our #FotoshopFriday series may well be considered low-hanging fruit. The latest facelift of the Audi R8 was subtle, subtler still if you consider elements like the exhaust pipe shape, rearview mirrors and some front fascia elements came over from the R8 GT. Even still, as of yet there’s been no new facelifted R8 GT. This quick adjustment of an R8 GT profile envisions such a car in pixels. More…

Flying Audi RS 6 Avant is Our Wallpaper of the Day

Earlier this morning we featured a video where Jon Olsson drove his Radical R2K up a ski slope. The renowned Audi RS 6 owner mentioned he’d thought of doing the run with his RS 6 Avant, but decided to do it instead with his Radical because it was more… radical. That’s all well and good, but what if he’d done it with the big Audi? That reminded us of a photo we’d seen recently from Audi Italia.

The forecasts from Bavaria are unequivocal: in spring and summer 2014, wind speeds of up to 290 kph are certainly very possible, especially when the sun is shining. This is because ABT Sportsline, the globally largest tuner of Volkswagen brands, has done away with the original speed limiter of the Audi RS5 Cabrio. Now, the 450 hp (331 kW) 4.2 FSI can show what it’s really able to do. A fitting stainless-steel muffler system consisting of a mid and rear muffler underscores the eight-cylinder car‘s emotional sound.
