    There’s a popular refrain among the young that when they turn 80, they’ll live without fear and try all the things they were afraid might ruin their lives like hard drugs. Naturally, this is all a bit optimistic, but at least one UK-based nearly-octogenarian is living that dream. Arthur, a...

    Yes. As it turns out, if you tune a TT RS (via Abt and then MRC) to make 610 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque, a little over 160 more than the R8 V10 Plus, it can keep up with an R8. This isn’t exactly a straight-up fight, since the drag strip is sopping wet and the R8 is also modified, but...

    Yesterday, we heard that the Golf R would come with some surprise that no one is expecting. Today, we’re learning that that surprise is unlikely to be a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, but R wanted one. The report comes from Holland’s Autovisie , which reports that the initial plan for the Mk8...

    The list of new cars on sale today with 5 cylinders is pretty short but it’s growing by one. The KTM X-Bow GTX uses Audi’s venerable 2.5-liter I5 and squeezes 600 hp out of it. That doesn’t mean that Audi just wasn’t trying when it put the engine in your TTRS/RS3, though. You won’t get dusted...

    The TT RS is, as the experts say, "damn good." So when Audi's crack team of designers started its mid-cycle facelift, they wisely chose to keep the updates mild. Audi appears to have mostly worked on sharpening what was already there, folding creases tighter, making the bulges look more...

    Our spy photographers have caught the updated TT RS testing at the Nurburgring. With cammo up front and in the back, it’s likely that this truly will only be a face(-and-tail)-lift, as far as appearance is concerned. With new design cues expected to bring the TT RS more in line with Marc...

    Although the TT RS was only announced in 2016, it looks like Audi Sport is already working on an update for this little fire breather. Our spy photographers have caught a facelifted TT RS testing out in the wild and even though it’s camouflaged, there are some visual updates we can see. For...

    We've been playing with a fun new toy designed by out of work BlackBerry programmers we found milling around a net neutrality conference. After wrangling them up and taking them to the sub-basement deep below the VW Vortex Media Group Towers (actually, it's a small cottage out in the woods) they...

    Boasting a 192 mph top speed and a 0-60 time of just 3.6 seconds, Audi has taken the TT to its limits with the clubsport turbo concept. Introduced today at the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (SEMA) in Las Vegas, the clubsport takes inspiration from Audi’s motorsports past. With a...

    One of the best things to emerge from Reddit is the humble AMA. A direct link between celebrities (among others) and their audience, the format allows everyone to ask their burning questions. Audi, clearly, is a fan, because the company has set up a first-of-its-kind video AMA from the cockpit...

    1-2-4-5-3.This series of numbers might not mean much to most people, but those who know will immediately recognize it. This set of numbers is the ignition sequence that produces the unique sound of Audi’s five-cylinder engines. For over 40 years the unique five-cylinder engine has been important...

    The Audi R8 and TT already offer a good degree of performance from the factory, but Audi Sport is making it easy to extract more speed out of them with its new line of performance parts. On both the R8 and the TT the aero kits are the most apparent change. They were optimized in Audi’s wind...

    The second season of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May’s new series "Definitely Not the Top Gear" (read: "The Grand Tour") was out filming a segment out in Croatia recently and fans caught this race between the TT RS and the Ariel Nomad. Seeing as how the Ariel Nomad has no real...

    The international media has made a big deal about how many new cars Audi’s in-house tuning brand, Audi Sport GmbH, will be producing in the coming months. Now, though, Americans can get excited, too, as Audi USA boss, Scott Keogh, confirmed at the New York International Auto Show that we will...

    Check this out. This car was at Audi's test facility near the Nurburgring last week. We're hoping to catch it out and about at some point. In the meantime, what we can see are drilled rotors. Our photographer friends asked if it was a TT RS? My answer was that I'm not sure. It's got TTS/S line...

    They call it the ‘Green Hell’ but if hell is fiery then Nurburgring is no Hades. For 2013, the Green Hell was doused with so much rain that the race was red flagged… stopped for over nine hours. Minus the red flag period, 15 hours were not easy on those cars in the mix. A heavy mix of water...
