    1381771860

    There was a time not so long ago when Quattro GmbH produced essentially one model at a time. But that time is behind us.

    1376600220

    Well, call us Ishmael. Long ago (okay, about eight months), Audi debuted an ad during the NFL playoffs called "Ahab." It showed a salty tow truck driver and his years of catches.

    1349973060

    There are an infinite number of impressive aspects to getting a 1992 Audi to clip past the 260-mph barrier.

    Paris: 2013 Audi S3 is hot-hatch forbidden fruit par excellence
    1348939980

    Alas, of all the not-for-U.S. models we see every year, some sting more than others. While the Volkswagen GTI may define 'hot-hatch' stateside, the 2013 Audi S3 ups the ante, and it looks even tastier and forbidden up close. The centerpiece of the A3 is the new 2.0-liter TFSI inline-4. The ...

    Bulgarian tuner Prospeed has built a replica of Audi's fabled S1 World Rally Championship mauler out of a garden-variety Audi Coupe, and it's a convincing-looking beast.

    Report: Audi A6 2.0T to get eight-speed auto and Quattro for 2013
    1340656260

    Not much gets written about the Audi A6, which is a shame because we have found it one of the most enjoyable models in German automaker's lineup to drive.

    Don't Get Too Attached To This Larger Allroad As an American living in Italy, there are often entire month-long stretches where I drive nothing but European cars that will sadly never come out to play on American soil.

    One man's new toy can be another's Moby Dick. Typically we'd mean that in a figurative sense, but Audi has taken things one step towards the literal – or literary – with its latest advertising spot. The commercial centers around a Captain Ahab-like tow truck driver who has, when the ...
