Waterfest 2014 may have already come and gone, but it is still front and center in our minds. With nearly 1700 shutter actuations, we realize that it can be a bit overwhelming to go through all of our galleries. Keeping that in mind, we will be assembling our ten favorite cars from each of our Waterfest sub-galleries throughout the week. Let’s get started with the B8 chassis A4, S4 and allroad.

For Waterfest 20 it seemed that mother nature has become a fan as well, gracing us with a mid-summer version of the ‘Polar Vortex’, which had a much higher approval rating than the one we lived through this winter.

It’d been less than a week since the 24-hours of Le Mans when cars hit the track at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. All that said, the two races couldn’t be further apart. While Le Mans features grandiose factory hospitality fortresses and F1 drivers as flag wavers, the Nurburgring is more for the masses. Barbecue scents and makeshift dance club dub step waft over the forest and graffiti coated track, while an eclectic mix of classes mean everything from FIA GT3 cars to home-built cars not much further developed than a top-tier LeMons program.

Worthersee 2014 was one for the recordbooks.  Coming in at roughly six times larger than Waterfest, there was plenty to see and do around the lakeside town of Reifnitz during the roughly two week invasion of cars manufactured by the Volkswagen Group, including Audi.  To streamline things a bit, we have gone through our nearly […] More…

Effectively, it’s a place where you can download pictures of racecars made specifically in black and white line format optimized for coloring… either by little kids or by big kids who are young at heart.

Over the last week we’ve gotten our hands on several model year 2015 (MY2015) change and order guides for the Audi range in the USA. The documents are highly detailed and outline many of the equipment, trim, color and package changes to the Audi line model-by-model. It’s an impressive and imposing amount of information so we’ve chosen to break it down model-by-model and release one per day. Today’s installment covers the A4 allroad, also known simply as “allroad” in the States.

One of the cars on display at this week’s New York International Auto Show was a Daytona Grey Audi SQ5. We almost didn’t think twice about it given Audi’s appreciation for things Audi Exclusive on auto show stands… but then a contact at Audi of America clarified some very interesting news regarding this color’s proliferation into other models this coming model year.

Had you thrown the idea past us, we’d have probably been quite skeptical. Take the Audi Sport quattro concept introduced last fall in Frankfurt, and transform it into a sedan and Avant as a basis for the upcoming B9. Had you told us before we’d seen it, we’d have likely suggested that it wouldn’t work, yet here it is thanks to Theophilus Chin… and we’re a bit more positive on the outcome.
