An Audi RS 3 Sportback test mule has been spied in the vicinity of the Nurburgring this week, suggesting this smallest Audi RS-car offering is nearing its auto show debut perhaps as early as Paris in September. At the same time, rumors are beginning to surface out of the German press that the car could swap its 2.5 TFSI 5-cylinder turbo for a version of the latest High Power 2.0 TFSI seen in the TT quattro sport concept from Geneva.

Being based in San Diego just around the corner from HRE Wheels is a dangerous predicament for TAG Motorsports… or perhaps just dangerous to their customers whose spouses may not want them investing in a set of HRE alloys.

DC-Baltimore area Audi tuner New German Performance just happens to be an APR distributor, so maybe it’s not surprising they’d have a few customers with an RS 7 or an S6. More interesting though might be what happens when two such customers head off to a local drag strip.

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.

You may have caught this great-looking grey RS 7 in coverage of the TAG Motorsports grand opening last month. “Plain Jane” RS 7s are rare enough, so modded examples don’t exactly blend in with the crowd. This one stuck out to us like a sore thumb… one very hot sore thumb. More…

We’ll be honest. Car porn isn’t all that satisfying. Sure, it’s pretty, but it doesn’t usually tell much of a story and I often don’t feel much-if-any more educated having watched it. I’ll give it a pass if it’s extra pretty or an extra cool car, but I’ve usually forgotten all about it roughly 1.5 hours after watching… if not 15 minutes. More…

When you read 730 hp/537 kW, you may first think of an Italian super-sports-car or a big truck but not of a roadworthy family or business estate. But ABT Sportsline is still able to surprise its target group and at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 will present its latest Audi RS6 model, the 320 kph ABT RS6-R. “Mind you, the R stands for racy, not for rough or rude,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt: “As with the normal Audi RS6, ours also provides the utmost comfort, sumptuousness and usefulness, limited to 25 cars worldwide.“ More…
