    When it comes to the Audi world, Abt Sportsline needs no introduction. Best known as one of the longest-running Audi tuners going, Abt also represents Audi's lead factory teams in the DTM and also counts itself as an Audi dealer. Headquartered in Kempten, Germany, Abt is a day jaunt from other...

    Were we to build a modded ur quattro, we likely wouldn't vary much from what you see here... and we doubt we're alone. Yes, you might prefer a different color, wheel combo, euro bumpers or the like... but in the end, this is an Ur quattro with RS 2 engine swap in America and under $20K. Works...

    As mentioned earlier today, we've spent the last two weeks on trips to Germany and managed to collect plenty of content for upcoming features on Fourtitude. Some of this trip included making the quick five-minute drive from Audi's Ingolstadt facility to neighboring Wettstetten. MTM is so close...

    When it comes to modified Audis, our editorial goal has always been to share as much of the rich Audi aftermarket with our enthusiast reader base. We tend to leave judgement of modifications to those very readers and to foster acceptance of modifications done by private owners to their pride and...

    As the iconic Ur quattro becomes more and more rare... at least the nicely preserved ones... the prices seem to be moving healthily northward. Take for example this 107,000 mile Titan Red example we've located in Everett Washington. At a listed price of $25,888, this is one of the more expensive...

    Only really sold in any number (and small numbers at that) for two model years in the USA, the Ur quattro isn't exactly what you'd call common. Finding any example, much less a clean one has become increasingly hard for American fans of Audi's rallying icon. And when it comes to modified ones...

    We doubt we have to define it, but a Matryoshka doll is that toy of Russian heritage where one doll opens up to reveal another inside... and another... and another. It's a simple idea, and also clever when applied to this new print ad for the R8 by one of Audi's ad agencies DDB Barcelona. The...

    In choosing goods and often watches to share with our readers as 'Choice Gear' we usually try to stick with the Audi theme or perhaps something that compliments your Audi in some way. Alas, when it comes though to the Urwerk UR-110 shown above we can only offer that the timepiece is one...

    One of our favorite personal blogs is the 'In the Garage' blog we've found at http://rgruppe.blogspot.com. The owner of the blog has a fixation on his vintage rally-prepped Ur quattro and also his R-Gruppe 911. His loves are close to our heart. Even better, he's posted video just this week of...

    German car magazine SportAuto has published a comparison of the latest Audi RS 5 versus one of the earliest Audi Ur quattro versions as part of its celebration of the 30 years of quattro anniversary. In many ways the RS 5 is the modern equivalent of the legendary original quattro so the...

    If you were a kid when the Audi ur quattro was ripping up the rally scene then you likely remember a day when the toy designers at Radio Shack were a bit more worldly - pushing R/C cars like the Martini Porsche 935 or Audi's own quattro... well before the monster truck cheese peddled today. If...

    Announcing a unique and very special gift for any Audi rally enthusiast. Fourtitude European editor David Corfield had a former life as a rally photographer for the Audi Sport UK team in the 1980s, and here, for the first time is a calendar with a selection of previously unpublished images from...

    We've stumbled across a little classic Audi love over on Tinypic.com in the form of an Audi ur quattro template. A red original quattro such as this one has been tearing up the screens in the BBC series Ashes to Ashes and that car apparently inspired this paper cutout template. The theory is...

    Rally Sport Magazine has published a quick review of a new Audi rallying history book titled 'Audi quattro, the Rally History'. We featured the book in our 2009 Audi Enthusiast's Gift Guide and can't say enough good about it. John Davenport's cataloguing of Audi Sport history is made perfect...

    The latest video from AudiTV on YouTube is an informative 10 minute piece on the 30 Years of quattro. You might expect this piece to be filled with vintage rally footage and interviews and in that respect it won't disappoint. Christian Geistdorfer, co-driver for Walter Rohrl during the rally...

    When it comes to automotive history and perspective, we can think of no better source than Brit-born Octane Magazine. From the same company that supplies EVO, Octane is essentially a similar formula to the typical British classic car mag but with a decidedly more stylish spin. That folks like...

    The Donau Classic event is a staple on the Audi Tradition calendar each summer and this year Audi chose to support the event with their recently purchased Brazilian DKW GT Malzoni and a range of vintage Audis. Audi AG boss Rupert Stadler piloted the DKW while board member Michael Dick tackled...

    Octane remains one of our single most favorite print magazines going and stories like the one linked below and alluded to above remind us why. Just published online, Octane editors have provided some cool photos and a quick report form the Chatsworth Rally Show that was held June 5-6 in the UK...
