    We met up a few weeks ago with Audi of America R8 product planner Mark Fruechtnicht at the local Neato Burrito. Fruechtnicht was in the area doing a site visit at a local Audi dealership and this gave us an both an excuse to enjoy a great burrito and talk shop about Audi and the R8. The...

    One of the photos we've encountered today with the press release from Audi's new AutoStadt pavilion included this R8 GT Spyder seen on display in Wolfsburg. We've only seen a few GT Spyders so far and hadn't yet seen a silver example so figured it was worth sharing. Read more about Audi's new...

    With the Audi R8 finally on a racing grid in America, it seems logical that American R8 owners will sit up and take notice. Attendance by a few R8s and their owners at the Audi Racing Experience hospitality presence was to be expected, but even still it was a treat to see a US-spec R8 GT make a...

    Speaking of the Audi R8 GT, we've come across another video short produced by Audi highlighting its ultra cool new supercar. This particular spot hails out of the German side of the Audi TV YouTube channel and catalogs the GT coupe's visit to Istanbul. No, there's no English dub like the recent...

    Our buddy Brian McCauley, an Audi brand specialist at Audi North Scottsdale in Arizona, dropped us a note about an Audi R8 GT that's sitting in his showroom. Seems Audi North Scottsdale had an R8 GT allotment that's not spoken for. Even better, the car was ordered through Audi Exclusive in a...

    With Audi R8 GT deliveries now well underway, shots of the cars in the wild are now beginning to surface. The car seems a natural for an Audi Exclusive order where an owner chooses to go beyond the streamlined color options and choose something a bit different. Case in point is a classic 70s...

    Emanuele Pirro returns again for the third of four Audi R8 GT videos. This time around, the topic is compromises... or rather the lack thereof. Audi engineers made like congress on the debt ceiling, not compromising in an effort to bring numbers down. Watch it below.

    Audi UK recently held a press event around the UK-spec Audi R8 GT and took their own stab at pushing stories that it spawned over the edge by including the presence of an R8 LMS GT3-spec racecar giving thrill rides with professional race car driver Marino Franchitti. First to surface from the...

    We're not sure what to make of this R8 GT-based test mule spotted at the Nurburgring yesterday. Clearly the car is a factory mule and clearly it's been upgraded. Here's a quick rundown of the changes we spot. •*Bigger racing-style front chin spoiler •*Front and rear fender flaps indicating a...

    Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder. The most obvious change is the GT's large carbon...

    It was probably a foregone conclusion that there would eventually be an R8 GT Spyder. Audi seems to have a track record of continual special model introductions done to keep momentum behind their super-hot R8. And since there's already a coupe GT and already a Spyder, it's easy to imagine how...
