Audi has been absolutely crushing it in the styling department for more than a decade now. The Q3 just another example of how it really is possible to make entry-level luxury vehicles that don’t look entry-level.

Dusty, dry and hot are the best ways to describe it. Phoenix is like this in April, which makes the perfect environment to take a gander at the newest variations of Ingolstadt’s successful TT. The folks from Audi chose this setting in order to give journalists some time to partake of the 225-hp TT quattro […] More…

It’s raining. Normally that’d only be a mild annoyance on a car launch, scuppering more complicated photo ops. But I’m in Finland. Just inside the Arctic Circle. In December. It’s the sort of situation that even the ever-ready Porsche PR team might secretly chalk up as a win. After all, we’re in this normally punishing […] More…

2018 Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder Review 1 600x300 photo

Many enthusiasts are quick to point out the similarities between the Lamborghini Huracan and the Audi R8. They’re not entirely wrong — the two cars share a few key components including the chassis, transmission, and the 10-cylinder engine, which is the same design and partially made in the same factory in Hungary.

Of all the entries in the German luxo-hot-rod derby, Audi has consistently avoided following the rest of the pack. By remaining true to its all-wheel-drive formula, the brand’s S – and then RS – divisions have resisted the temptation to simply build a variant of the BMW M3, an affliction that ran its course at both Mercedes-AMG and Cadillac V. And what does […] More…

Audi and its Quattro all-wheel drive is a pairing that makes serious artistry of the road. It’s like the duo of Daft Punk (if you’re an electronic music fan), The Black Keys (for the rock fans), or Hall and Oates or Simon and Garfunkel (for the fans of the older stuff). To have one without […] More…

2019 Audi A7 Review 14 600x300 photo

The Audi A7 is the German automaker’s unique take on a four-door car that combines a sleek, swept-back coupe profile with a practical liftback. But since its debut nearly eight years ago, the A7 has been shamefully copied by companies like BMW (with the 6 Series Gran Turismo), Kia (with the Stinger GT), and even […] More…

Sometimes, in a car that is special, there is a single feature that tells you everything you need to know about the car. Like the tire-smoking silhouette on the windshield surround of a Dodge Demon. Or the starlight headliner in a Rolls Royce. In the Audi RS3, that one thing happens when you tap the […] More…

Driving a Lamborghini on public roads is an experience that’s akin to tight-rope walking. People point and exclaim, happy they’re seeing something so rare in action.
