    Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus Cars, and purveyor of all things simple and lightweight. No need for me to extoll his virtues; hundreds of Internet goers have already done so with an in-depth Wikipedia page. If you remember, I touched upon my preference for simplicity in my last entry. The...

    The everyday driving aspects for the RS will not change much, though I might not cover as many miles.

    Yes the R8 GRAND-AM is now testing in the USA and if, like us, you're insanely jealous of Ian Baas and the boys at APR who'll be able to race the thing this summer then perhaps you should turn your attention to Team Phoenix.

    In a move you don't always see from Audi, we've stumbled across an interesting turn of events surrounding manual transmissions in next year's facelifted S4 and S5.

    Since its launch in 2009, ABC's 'Modern Family' has re-set the comedic bar and brought energy back to the television sitcom. Centering on three hardly traditional and unintentionally hip families living in Southern California, it's not surprising that one of them ended up driving an Audi. As...

    The harder core of the motorsport fans on this site will recall with chagrin the distribution of the video feed from the 12 Hours of Sebring... or the lack thereof. Seems the folks at Audi are among that group because they've been quick to stream races ever since. Beginning with Le Mans and...
