    Twin turbos return to the next generation Audi S4?

    There is awesomeness to the prefix "twin-turbo."

    Geneva Motor Show: Tramontana supercar cometh

    Some would say that the Tramontana supercar looks like a mating experiment between the Plymouth Prowler and the Batmobile. We'll call the looks "unique".
