When last we left Neidfaktor and their sinister looking Dark Ride RS 6 Avant project, the car had received Alcantara hides with contrast yellow stitching across most non-seat interior surfaces, plus added carbon fiber for good measure. Now, it appears the car has gone further with a set of Recaro shell seats that continue the black and gold theme.

We’re not being terribly clever when we call this latest update to our Project A3 sedan series “Spoiler Alert.” After all, it’s about a unique front chin spoiler and a multi function alert / gauge system from P3. That’s all well and good, but the clever title goes one step further in that we’re also going to tell you how the story ends. More…

German Tuning house Abt Sportsline has revealed their new widebody kit for Audi’s second-generation Q7. The overall design extensively changes the look of the Q7 in bold fashion. Those who like bold changes and widebody kits will likely love it, but we suspect the less-is-more OEM+ crowd will look at it more critically. Reactions aside, this being Abt means OEM like production quality and full TUV approval. More…

Audi doesn’t build an RS 1 model, but even if they did we think it’d be more tame than this car. MTM has gone all-out in its development of the platform based on a super limited A1 quattro model. The net result appears a bit more akin to Mattias Ekstrom’s rallycross S1 than it is to a peak factory performance RS-car. More…
