Audi is giving the RS5 a mild nip and tuck for 2021. That means a new grille and an improved infotainment system. The grille is lower and fatter than the previous model and the fenders bulge 15 mm farther than the standard A5. Together these contribute to a lower, wider stance that Audi hopes will […] More…

What the hell is the C doing in C-V2X technology? We’ve all heard of Vehicle to Everything (V2X) technology at this point. It means that cars can talk to each other and to the local grid to get a better picture of what’s going in the environs. But have you heard of C-V2X? Yes. Because […] More…

The word “Sportback” must be getting tired with all the heavy lifting it’s been doing this decade. The latest new thing it means is “somewhat coupey, somewhat hatchey, addition to the Q5 line-up.” I guess it does sound better than that. Shortly following the Q5’s facelift, Audi has revealed the new for 2021 model, which […] More…

Although the RS2 Avant looks like genius now, it was kind of weird when it came out. Why make it a wagon? They already had a coupe body in production whose history stretched back to the fearsome Quattro.  In its pursuit of a performance car for all occasions—a decision that would come to form Audi […] More…

Imported last year, this RS2 is among the first to be imported to the US. It is, allegedly, a one-owner car (was the owner waiting for 2019 to emigrate with the car?) and has all service records since the first 10,000km service. The listing claims it was the first RS2 imported to the US, but […] More…

The RS Q8 and the Lamborghini Urus share quite a bit in common. An engine, a chassis, and if you really squint they don’t look all that different. But from a little nearer, the RS Q8 looks a little less aggressive, a little less like it has its hackles up. And that’s a theme that […] More…

The Volkswagen Group’s CEO hinted that his brands might be interested in joining the top tier of open-wheel racing once regulations change to make it become carbon neutral. The sport’s regulations are set to include so-called “biofuels” as of 2023 in an attempt to keep the sport green and relevant. That clearly appeals to VW’s […] More…

Don’t you love it when interests line up? It’s like when you’re rich friends ask you to house sit or when your parents just need you to drive their Karmann Ghia home. “Oh darn. Guess I’ll have to then.” The latest such synergy is Brembo’s reflective brake discs. I defy you to see these and […] More…

Unconfirmed reports from the UK suggest that Volkswagen could be parting ways with Bugatti. The company would, the Car Magazine report suggests, go to Rimac Automobili. The report is based on unnamed sources but would be made in an effort to earn Porsche a bigger slice of the Rimac pie. Already invested in the small […] More…

Audi stable of big RSs is officially in US dealerships today and we couldn’t be more thrilled. After seeing pictures of the cars all wrapped up in protective plastic at a dock a few weeks ago, we could hardly hold our breaths any longer. The trio of cars, the RS6 Avant, RS7, and RS Q8 […] More…

We found out today that the S3 will be coming to America, but it will be a minute before we get it. Fortunately, the Brits already got their hands on it, and those throttle-happy hatch-lovers have wrung its neck for us. Overall, the results are good. As you might expect from an S3—the RS3 being […] More…

It’s official, the 2022 Audi S3 Sedan will be coming stateside. Officially revealed last month in European guise, the new S3 is set to pick up where the last S3 left off. The diminutive Audi is powered by a familiar Volkswagen-derived four-pot making 306 hp and sending power to all four wheels. The new generation […] More…
