    A new R8 quarter-mile record has been set. This yellow, twin-turbo R8 from Underground Racing has run the quarter-mile in just 7.695 seconds. In fact, the acceleration was so aggressive that by the 1,320-foot mark, the R8 was moving at 196 mph. As you might expect, getting it all off the line...

    Audi tuner APR has been pushing the Audi 2.5L five-cylinder to higher and higher power levels. Now they've gotten an RS3 to break into the nine-second window in the quarter mile. It wasn't just a single go for broke pass, either. The customer car ran eight nine-second passes at the Montgomery...

    We've run photos of this particular signal green TT RS in the past. Owned by UK tuning firm TTS Roadsport, the car features ECU upgrade and exhaust. That's a conservative list of mods but worth noting when you pair it with the fact that they managed 3.55 seconds 0-60 mph and a 12.09 quarter mile...
