When it comes to performance Audis, we consider the S6 and its lineage to remain the brand’s “true north”. Over the years, things like consumer tastes change. Badges move to new nomenclature, supercars get launched and are subsequentally driven by super heroes, Avants become passé to some, while 4-door coupés prove lower slung and more sultry. Even through all of this, the S6 sedan remains, steadfast in its mission of bringing supercar challenging pace to the ever present form of a four door executive sedan. It is the model by which audi can measure its direction as readily as that little engraved “N” on your compass will help you find your way in a dense forest. More…

This week, Audi is pulling the wraps off of its updated A6 and A7 range at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While these cars may appear to be benefitting solely from a mild cosmetic mid-lifecycle freshening, we recently went to Germany in order to take a look. What we learned there, and while driving this Audi A6 2.0 TFSI, is that the updates are more than just skin deep. More…

The exterior appearance of a vehicle is a very personal thing. When our Project S7 went to SEMA last year, the car went with a Charcoal Matte Metallic wrap from Avery Denison. The beauty of a wrap is that it can be removed and replaced with relative ease, allowing us to completely change the look drastically for SEMA 2014 with minimal wear and tear on the car.

No doubt one of the most illustrious Audi enthusiasts and owners out there has to be Jon Olsson. In addition to his celebrity athlete status as professional skier and X-gamer, Olsson’s also had a long list of amazingly built cars with Audi DNA. First came a camo Lamborghini, then a supercharged widebody Audi R8, then a Lambo/Audi V10-powered Radical road going LMP car and finally his RS 6 Avant. That last car served as a chase car in this year’s Gumball Rally, though it was just so good that Jon’s put it under the knife for a much more extensive build.
