When it comes to world auto shows, AutoShanghai may just be the Chinese equivalent of the Frankfurt IAA. Likely the largest for the Chinese market, now the world’s largest car market, this event happens but once every two years (also just like Frankfurt). Alas, we didn’t attend but we’ve assembled a collection of photos and videos of Audi’s presence at the show for your viewing pleasure. More…

This one time, at the ski hill, Jon Olsson rented a helicopter and filmed himself hooning up it in his LMP1-inspired and Audi V10 powered Radical sportscar. This second time, at the ski hill, Jon Olsson rented a helicopter and did it again… with a station wagon… a flared and winged 900 hp Audi RS 6. Take that all you auto industry analysts who say the wagon isn’t cool anymore.

Given Audi activated their consumer market configurator last week, it is perhaps no surprise that we’re now receiving assets from the car’s launch for the European press. Be jealous.

Maybe one of the things that makes the Audi S8 in the movie Ronin just such legendary product placement for Ingolstadt is the truism. When thieves want to make a hasty getaway, an Audi is a quick and effective way to transport you or your gang. Case in point is this most recent gang from the UK who employed a stolen Audi A7.

We can’t say we really like the idea of crash videos involving Audis, because they always result in the destruction of a nice car. That said, they also remind us just how safe these cars are and also the value of driving safely. Given all this, we felt the need to share a video by […] More…

When we first hatched the idea for our Audi Driver series, the idea was simply to highlight interesting people who own the cars we love. Often this means the person is a celebrity, actor or athlete. Fame isn’t the only thing that makes people interesting and worth reading about though, and that is well exemplified by R8 owner Wayne Simpson.

We’ll be honest, the whole film genre of Russian dash cams is something we find perpetually entertaining and a bit of a guilty pleasure. It’s not deep and thoughtful stuff mind you, but it’s always good for a short burst of entertainment on a Friday afternoon. Case in point is this short, shot as presumably a friend of a C5 allroad owner hoons around on public city streets during some inclement winter weather. More…
