  1. A6, S6, & RS6 (C5)
    What’s up everyone? Thanks for taking your time reading my post. A week ago I picked up a 2002 Audi A6 4.2L Quattro with 155k on the odometer. I scored it for $1,500 but it needs a few basic thing like Tie rods, pads and rotors. Any suggestions on a good fuel treatment I should put through this...

    As if there weren’t already enough reasons to lust after the RS 6 Avant, Audi’s apprentices have gone and given us another. This is the RS 6 GTO Concept and it’s inspired by the Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO. We may die of lust before we get to the end of this story so do bear with us. According to...

    Starting at $142,700 for the RWD Coupe, the R8 lineup will be RWD as standard for 2021 with the quattro making more power and costing about 50 grand more. Audi of America announced today that the Coupe and Spyder versions of the R8 RWD would be available, though, for a limited time only. That...

    It almost makes you wistful for a time when the Ur-Quattro was a little less loved that even a barn find costs the better part of ten grand American. But here we are. Finished in Tornado Red with a Charcoal cloth interior, this may be the cheapest way (if we ignore shipping, which we will...

    The ‘80s were among the most formative years for Audi. Its reputation as a performance manufacturer, the reputation of all-wheel-drive, and one of rallying’s most important decades are all irrevocably linked thanks to Audi. So the brand’s UK office has opened up the vault to show off some of...

    The wonderful thing about LEGO is that even as kits have become more elaborate and well-defined, the spirit of inventiveness and imagination never died. Take, for example, this series of photographs from EVO contributor, Dominic Fraser . Fraser has spent his time in self-isolation recreating...

    Videos on the internet usually start with big, loud, excited assertions of extraordinariness to get the audience’s attention and make sure they don’t turn away to one of the several thousand other forms of entertainment available to them. This one starts with speechlessness. The reason is that...

    If that prototype Quattro just below on the front page is a little too much, or maybe you just don’t have the garage space, then this might be more up your alley. Lego’s latest product idea is a replica of the Audi Sport Quattro that won Pikes Peak in 1987. The Pikes Peak was a bit of a last...

    Audi's quattro with ultra technology sounds awesome. We know quattro is good, so ultra technology quattro must be better, right? But what is it, what does it really mean, and - most importantly - how does it work? Let's explore. Quattro arrived in 1980 in - appropriately - the Quattro. The...

    It's a tale as old as time. Or as old as trucks, anyway. If you've got two trucks, you need to tie them together and see who can pull the hardest. The key to winning a tug of war isn't power. Or traction. After all, the SQ7 TDI's 4.0L diesel with 429 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque makes tons of...

    For all the talk of a car’s place being on the track, racing is actually a remarkably difficult hobby. Equal parts expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous, it’s surprising that it continues to exist. It may help that life is also expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous. Few people are as...

    We have to admit that this video has caught us by surprise. We have gotten used to seeing tank-style tracks on off-road vehicles like , Land Rovers and , but installing them on an Audi S1 takes some out-of-the-box thinking (and perhaps a little bit of madness). Unfortunately, there are...

    The all-new fourth generation Audi A8 is set to debut any moment now. For weeks we've been teased by images showing bits and pieces of the new model, a partially camouflaged model at a movie premiere with a certain web-slinger propped up on it's hood, and, most curiously, photos of blindfolded...

    Speaking at the recent Formula E Berlin e-Prix, Audi’s head of development, Peter Mertens, outlined the brand’s plans for its electric vehicles, which include an electric supercar and performance versions of the upcoming e-tron models. “You can very well imagine that at some point we will have...

    People often say that you should shoot for the moon, because even if you miss you'll land among the stars. Never has that been truer than in Audi's case. That's because Audi's moon rover is set to be a star in the latest installment of Ridley Scott's Alien series, "Alien: Covenant." “The...

    Replicas are very like replicants in that they both cause some serious existential quandries. Namely, how much does authenticity really matter? Movies like Blade Runner confront this question and effectively answers it by suggesting that authenticity takes a back seat to narrative and fear of...

    Many automakers are now offering a dedicated 'drift mode' on their performance vehicles, but Audi refuses to buy into the juvenile trend. The German automaker said late last year that it wouldn't put a 'drift mode' on any of its cars and recently doubled down on the stance when speaking to...
