    Audi is giving the RS5 a mild nip and tuck for 2021. That means a new grille and an improved infotainment system. The grille is lower and fatter than the previous model and the fenders bulge 15 mm farther than the standard A5. Together these contribute to a lower, wider stance that Audi hopes...

    Go check out the brake rotors on that cool exotic or big performance SUV. Check out all those little tiny holes in them. It's called cross drilling. The holes are supposed to make you stop faster, look more handsome, and leap over tall buildings in a single bound. But how do they work? And more...

    Of all the entries in the German luxo-hot-rod derby, Audi has consistently avoided following the rest of the pack. By remaining true to its all-wheel-drive formula, the brand’s S – and then RS – divisions have resisted the temptation to simply build a variant of the BMW M3, an affliction that...

    Audi makes cars that are lovely to behold, a joy to drive, stable at speed, futuristic, and much more besides. One word you could never use to describe them, though, is light. Ever since the ‘80s, the brand has had a weighty (and forward-looking) commitment to adding as much driveline as...

    We’ve known for some time that the RS5 would sport an 8-speed automatic, rather than the dual-clutches that are the vogue among sportier cars. But why? Automobile asked Anthony Garbis, RS5 product manager, why at the New York International Auto Show. Turns out the reason is pretty simple. The...

    The new RS5 is quite something. But if you’re in the mood for a little more, there’s ABT, the 100-year-old tuning house that’s been making Audis crazier for years. Unfortunately, few people will ever get to see this particular ABT RS5-R, because only 50 have been made. Fortunately, Auditography...

    If you ask an engineer how to make a car better, you’re likely to hear one word: weight. Shedding pounds improves nearly every performance metric, from acceleration to cornering speed to stopping distance and even onto fuel economy. Making a car lighter, as a rule, makes it better. That’s why...
