    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...

    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...

    According to a recent blog post by Forbes Magazine, Napster creator and former Facebook president Sean Parker drives an Audi. That Justin Timberlake, the actor/musician who played Parker in the movie 'Facebook' has had his own ties with Audi is likely a coincidence, but the real life Parker...

    Back in 2009, North Carolina-based Underground Racing popped up on our radar when they went and placed a twin turbo system on the Lamborghini Gallardo Nera. Given the similarities between the Gallardo V10 and the R8 V10, we rang them up to see if they were considering an R8 kit. They confirmed...

    Remember that polished aluminum Audi R8 spied on the MTM stand at Geneva Auto Show last spring? In case you don't, here's a quick rundown. The Ingolstadt-based Audi tuner performed perhaps the ultimate Audi engine transplant by dropping the biturbo V10 FSI of the RS 6 into an R8 chassis. The...

    When we last toured the quattro GmbH's R8 production line in Neckarsulm, Germany, we were told that most R8s are built in neutral shades such as white, silver, black or grey. Apparently the person who ordered this R8 V10 Spyder didn't get the memo. Dipping into the Audi Exclusive custom paint...

    Those in the world of exotic cars and likely those car buffs beyond know the name Akrapovič. Known for their lightweight titanium exhaust systems that border on artwork, the team at Akrapovič have begun a tease of their latest product tailored to the Audi R8 V10. The shot above of an...

    Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder. The most obvious change is the GT's large carbon...

    We've seen Garnet Red Pearl Effect on Audis before, often Q5s. Still, this is the first R8 V10 we've seen in the hue and we like what we see. This particular car was just delivered at Audi North Scottsdale and these iPhone pics were sent to us by Audi brand specialist and former Fourtitude...

    I got an email a few weeks ago from a source at Audi looking for footage of an Audi, preferably an R8, in the snow. The only thing like that I could think of was the the video review Ezra Dyer had done about the R8 V10 for the New York times. Turns out Audi had already zeroed in on that one as...

    Matt Farah of TheSmokingTire, the YouTube-distributed automotive video series, have had a chance to get behind the wheel of STaSIS' supercharged R8 that graced the Audi stand at SEMA. It being a supercharged V10 R8 Spyder we doubted we'd see much dislike about the car but even we were surprised...

    The long slow tease seems shortly at an end. Gamers and driving sim aficionados eagerly await the release of the latest and greatest evolution of the Gran Turismo franchise and its programmers at Polyphony have today announced a Collector's Edition at $99.99 SRP. Among the benefits of the...

    Perhaps it's not a surprise that the highest install rates for special Audi Exclusive tailoring are on the Audi's R8. One of the latest we've spotted is this Velvet Purple example photographed by the folks over on the IAmAudi website. Even cooler, the car isn't just painted a special color - the...

    Our friends over at GermanCarBlog sent us a link to this image earlier today, said to potentially be a leaked shot of the upcoming D4-based S-car. First and foremost, the picture is most decidedly a photoshop render and we hear it was originally posted on WorldCarFans. Why It's a Fake...
