    1416758280

    Remember the gestation period of the Lexus LFA, the one that, in automotive time, took so long that its origins could have been carbon dated? We feel like it's déja vu all over again, as Yogi Berra would have said, this time featuring the Audi Quattro and Audi Sport Quattro. It was 2010 ...

    1416512460

    The Turbo may be the most powerful model in the Cayenne range, but the GTS is arguably the enthusiast's choice.
