Now in its 20th year, Waterfest continues to bring Audi and Volkswagen enthusiasts from around the US and Canada to Englishtown, New Jersey for one weekend each July. 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.

The concept car shown at Worthersee in May presents an interesting tease. Called the “A3 clubsport quattro” and based more on an S3 sedan according to the press release, the 2.5 TFSI turbocharged 5-cylinder suggests neither of these. Thus far, Audi has used this engine only for the RS 3 and TT RS… and that’s not expected to change. In as much, we think the car is more of a preview of the RS 3, and reading our discussion forums we’re not alone. More…

There’s an interesting thing about the Incredible Hulk. This mammoth green superhero is the strongest of Marvel’s Avengers, and his in-your-face primary green makes sure you won’t forget him just the same. He’s in your face, huge and likely the most powerful thing going – a fitting analogy then for one of ECS Tuning’s latest project cars. More…

It’s not like we didn’t see it coming. There’s been an RS 6 plus as long as there’s been an RS 6. The idea of a slightly more powerful and special RS 6 Avant later in the production cycle has even been mentioned by Audi themselves. Nevertheless, this post by a UK Audi dealership (now removed from their website) seems to have revealed specifics on the car. More…

On our way home from Worthersee last week, we had a few hours to kill ahead of our flight out of Munich. With the keys to an S3 Cabriolet in our possession, we figured what better way to spend an afternoon than mulling about at Audi’s corporate headquarters. When we go, we’re never disappointed and this new RS 6 Avant in Audi Exclusive Nimbus Grey is a perfect example of why we’ll drive an hour to stroll through a car park. More…

As it is sometimes known to do, Audi revealed details of a surprise concept car last week in the form of the RS 5 TDI concept. Other than some Le Mans-inspired racing stripes, the RS 5 TDI looks much like what you’d expect from any RS 5 coupe. However, under the hood these RS 5 prototypes trade their high-rev 4.2 FSI petrol V8s for a triple-charged high-output V6 TDI engine. More…
