    As mentioned, over the last two weeks we've had the rare chance to visit the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on four separate occasions. What we found was that there's nearly always something very, very unique in the Audi lexicon to see in and around the brick piazza that makes up the heart of the forum...

    Check out this latest test mule the mad staff at quattro GmbH have been testing at the Nurburgring. Photographed at the roundabout near the track, this blacked-out Audi A1 would seem to be a dead giveaway of the existence of an RS 1 program. Those following the A1 story know the intel thus far...

    Check out this shot we found over on BlogAutomobile.fr. Yes, this is the A1 5-door, expected to be dubbed Sportback. Unlike other Sportbacks based on hatchbacks (really just the A3), the A1 appears more to be a 5--door take on the usual A1 greenhouse... more like the original A3 design than the...

    There's a lot to love about the 5-cylinder TFSI Audi A1 clubsport quattro. We can think of at least 504 reasons. 503 of those might just be the 503 horses residing under the car's hood and at least one more is the cool A4 DTM-inspired side exit exhaust that may not be good for long-term paint...

    It's a little known fact that the Audi S1 was supposed to be revealed nearly a year ago at the Paris Auto show.

    There's an under ground parking garage at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt and we'll admit that, for this editor at least, it's a must-see destination when I hit the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. Like minds have caught RS 5 test mules and RS-chinned S5 cabs in here from what we've seen and though we've...

    Our friends at Audi tuner MTM have dropped us their 2010 e-card, sharing just how snow-covered their headquarters just outside of Ingolstadt is. Alas, while quattro is in the cards for the Audi A1 we doubt their car has it. We're betting it could use all-wheel drive right about now. Visit MTM's...
