    Have you heard about one of the latest videos going viral on Youtube involving a Russian hit and run by an Audi R8? Filmed near Moscow State University, a common spot for street racers and drifting, the short clip shows a white Audi R8 go into a wide drift on a cross street and sideswiping a...

    Our spy photographer sources have just sent us over a new set of shots of the R8 e-tron test mule of which a few photos surfaced yesterday. Photographers tell us this mule rounded the Ring quite quietly though we're checking to see if it was employing any of the e-sound elements that Audi...

    Last August we ran a story about an Audi R8 GT painted by Audi Exclusive in Signal Green, photos of which had been posted over at AutoGespot. For those unfamiliar with the hue, Signal Green is almost a basic non-metalic primary green that was a popular color of choice for German cars in the...

    We're impressed by Lady Gaga's taste. It would appear from these X17Online photos that the avant garde music star has picked up (or perhaps borrowed) a Daytona Grey V10 coupe complete with carbon blades and titanium wheels. Many outlets reporting the story have suggested the car is an uber...

    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...

    Swedish skiing sensation and Red Bull sponsored athlete Jon Olsson established himself firmly as a certified car buff when he began to show up to the slopes in a snow camo wrapped Gallardo that made its own share of waves. So how do you follow up such a ride to the ski slopes? We've been...

    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...

    Two photos (one above, one via the link below) surfaced this week of what is purported to be the interior of the R8 e-tron. If that is the case (and we're guessing it is), then this begs the question of how much of these changes will also be seen in the new and facelifted audi R8 when it debuts...

    Audi tv has released a new video celebrating five years of production of the R8. Most of the video is footage of Audi's mid-engine supercar in various guises (coupe, Spyder, 4.2, 5.2, GT), though the very end of the video gets even more interesting as a shadowy image reveals the facelifted R8...

    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...

    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...

    On the eve before the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Audi hosted a small event at the Shores Resort in Daytona beach where the new R8 GRAND-AM was shared with journalists and a few race teams considering the car. Just yards away from the very beach where the original Daytona stock car races were...

    While in Daytona during the first test of the Audi R8 GRAND-Am back in December, Audi of America cameras caught the experience on film. Since then, the team in Herndon has put together an educational and entertaining teaser with some commentary from Audi Sport engineer Brad Kettler ahead of this...

    We've just taken delivery of our latest 4 Season test car, and while we plan a more intensive and detailed formal intro shortly, we've decided to officially confirm the car as we've teased it quite a bit via Instagram. Over the next few months we'll be doing the usual like highlighting what...

    At Fourtitude we like to think we're well-connected to the inside line in Ingolstadt, even ahead of the curve. Then there are guys like Georg Kacher, someone we hold in the highest regard for his own nearly unmatched insight into product development at Audi. Kacher's published a new piece just...

    We featured a scale model Audi R8 GT on our recent 2011 Holiday Gift Guide for the Audi Enthusiast , though as a resin model that one may have been a bit expensive for all but the serious scale model collector. Not so with this 1:18 scale Audi R8 GT we found on Amazon.com following its...

    Yes the R8 GRAND-AM is now testing in the USA and if, like us, you're insanely jealous of Ian Baas and the boys at APR who'll be able to race the thing this summer then perhaps you should turn your attention to Team Phoenix. Turns out the German team is selling off two of their R8s from the 2011...
