    This week Fourtitude attended the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, an event that spawned plenty of Audi news that we've published and will continue to publish through the weekend. A highlight of the show was certainly the Audi Press Conference. Audi AG has released footage of the 2012 Geneva press...

    It's officially Thursday here in Geneva and we're sacked and ready for a few hours' sleep that'll get us up just in time to catch our KLM flight to Amsterdam then back to Washington D.C. It's about time we turn in and since we'll be holed up in various Dutch-liveried planes and a particular red...

    One of our favorite elements of a European industry motor show is the on-stand boutique. Europeans must love their branded swag because most car companies including Audi plan on a shop full of goods as part of their auto show stand. At every show we usually take a close look at the shop to see...

    Common practice for Audi at a major motor show is to add more cars on the second press day when day 1 includes a press conference. With the chairs, platforms, video rigs and more now gone, this opens up plenty of room for more eye candy. Geneva 2012 was no different and upon our return today to...

    There was so much new on the Audi stand this week at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland that we almost forgot about this particular piece of news. Then we got back from dinner (Geneva Mean Time) and saw news from the States about the iPad 4G announcement and this bumped up to our top...

    Though the stars of the Audi stand at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show were most certainly the new A3, the new RS 4 or the more recently revealed A1 quattro and A6 allroad, this very interesting R8 from Audi Exclusive grabbed our attention from the outset. Set on the corner of the Audi stand, this R8...

    More bad news for proponents of radical growth of Audi's sports car lineup - the proposed "little brother to the Audi R8" has been cancelled according to a highly placed source at Audi AG. Apparently when company directors looked into the feasibility it was determined that there just wasn't...

    In case you missed it we ran all of the Audi PR text materials earlier this evening right as the car was launched. We've finally had a chance to get back to the hotel room here in Geneva and format/upload all of the other remaining release photography. Below is a link to both the press release...

    ItalDesign has begun its own Geneva teaser process with a video push on YouTube. The latest video (below) shows that they're not just hinting the car's name but also a few design elements. A while back the Volkswagen Group acquired ItalDesign and added it to the company portfolio. The company...

    We're getting close to the Geneva Auto Show. In case you'd seen the photo blasts of the new Audi RS 4 and the TT RS plus and hadn't done the math, it's messaging time in these weeks ahead of the main event that first week of March. It's always a game to guess which reveals will come ahead of...

    We've just run across an apparent leaked document that outlines Audi's plans for the Geneva Motor Show. Written in French but also appearing in Audi's official font, the document appears to be authentic and perhaps part of an internal briefing on the Geneva show. The document confirms the A3, A6...

From the sounds of it, A, M und S's source was Audi Design...
