    Maybe drivers will finally stop driving like idiots for YouTube views after police find a novel way to catch a speeding R8 driver in England. The R8 driver posted a video of himself flying along Snake Pass, a wonderfully twisty and hilly-looking road that winds through Derbyshire, England...

    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...

    The Audi Forum at Neckarsulm has done it again showing off a new R8 painted in frosted glass blue. And that’s great, but what’s really special is the interior. Blue leather is a big risk. It can go very, very badly. But, as with this R8, it can also go extremely well. Modern interiors have a...

    Rumor has it that Audi's planning on replacing the glorious R8 with an electric supercar. And a new report says that they're reaching out to boutique EV supercar-maker Rimac. The Audi e-tron family is getting ready to expand in a big way. I'll save you the "charging up" puns. The supercar was...

    Audi announced earlier this month that it will be adding the e-tron GT to the line that builds the R8. That’s all well and good, but included in that announcement was the admission that the two lines wouldn’t quite work the same. That’s because the R8 is so handmade that it wouldn’t really work...

    Audi, like the rest of VW Group, is getting ready for a big electric push, and that means more production sites for the fancy new electric cars. And Audi announced yesterday that the Robert Downey Jr-approved e-tron GT will be produced alongside the R8 at its Böllinger Höfe facility near...

    If you're reading this site, you are probably well aware of the GT3 and slower GT4 racing class regulations, which are used in popular racing series all over the globe. You may not have heard of the new GT2 regulations, however, which are being put in place by the SRO Motorsports Group. Cars...

    When the R8 RWS premiered, Audi promised that the S stood for “series,” implying that there would be more than just one. A recent report from Piston Heads suggests that the brand is,  indeed, planning another RWD R8 which will be even more extreme than the first. Inspired by its R8 GT3...

    At Audi’s annual general meeting today, the brand announced that it would discontinue the TT and replace it with an electric car in the next few years. “For two decades, we have had this young, emotive car in our product range: as a coupe and as a roadster,” said Bram Schot, chairman of Audi’s...

    To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the R8 V10, Audi sent one to photographer Fabian Oefner to have its internals captured and turned into an exploded view. The photograph is, on its own, impressive. Equal parts beautiful and surreal, the picture seems to capture a moment in time, not unlike...

    Do you remember that insane photo of the Lamborghini Miura with the engine being blown apart out the back ? Did you ever wonder how they did it? Well good news, Audi hired the same photographer to give the R8 V10 the same treatment to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The photo (photos?) was...

    With rumors of the R8 V10 ceding its place in the lineup to an electric supercar , it’s easy to accuse those of us who are a little sad of being outdated dinosaurs who just want things to be like they were in the good old days. But for many of us, the sadness comes not from a fear of the future...

    When you consider that the Audi R8—along with its sister car, the Huracan—is the last V10-powered car on the road, it starts to look more and more like a panda: endangered and not that likely to reproduce. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that the rumors are again swirling that an electric...

    The Audi Decennium was first revealed back in March, but now finally know how many are coming stateside and much they’ll cost. Built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Audi Group’s gorgeous 5.2-liter V10, the R8 Decennium will start at $214,995 and Audi will be importing just 50 into the...

    Audi is celebrating ten tens with a real tenner. One it's building ten of. Nope, gotcha. They're building 222 R8s to celebrate 10 years of the V10. That's right, it's been a whole decade since Audi started putting a V10 into the R8 sports car. To mark that, here comes the Audi R8 V10 Decennium...

    Magnetic Ride Control is used by Audi, Ferrari, GM, and even Ford. But how does it work and where does it come from? Magneride was launched on the Cadillac Seville STS way back in 2002. This was back when Cadillac first really started going after the Germans and pitching that car as a real...

    A new photo has surfaced online purporting to show an official 2019 product roadmap from Audi. The photo, which is of a slide from a Powerpoint presentation, shows us pretty much every new vehicle debut that Audi has planned for 2019. As you can see, the automaker is preparing to debut both...

    Audi-owned Italian coachbuilder Italdesign has released a teaser image for its next product, which it plans to show at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Unfortunately, this teaser image doesn't give us a very good idea of what Italdesign's latest creation looks like. It's hard to even...

    In which our brave hero contemplates spending $100 on a single bit and runs you through to get your rebuild inspected. The temptation of a salvage car auctions can and should be compared to the sirens on the rocks. We all think we'll be able to avoid tragedy, but as this video points out...

    The Atlanta Hawks may not be doing that well on the court, but they're pretty good at pranks. Trae Young was the latest victims of the team's rookie hazing. Young's brand new, matte black R8 was parked at the stadium on November 9 where presumably he thought it was safe and sound. When he...
