PostHeaderIcon ABT Audi S5 Tuning Program for 2018 MY Range

The S5 series have always been among the classiest Audis one can buy due to the discreet way in which they deliver their power. They are not cars for posers. The S5 models are pretty accomplished cars as standard, but upgrade treatments like this ABT Audi S5 tweak that perfection and make the whole even more enjoyable. 

The 2018 ABT Audi S5 covers all variants of the car including Sportback, Coupe and Convertible. The latter is our favorite because it is all the car you ever need. It has four seats, an open top, four-wheel-drive, a great interior, comfy ride, and stellar performance. The ABT treatment improves some of those aspects with an eye towards sportiness. So the body is garnished with aero parts, the suspension lowered, and the wheels increased in size.

But they have done all this in a level-headed way so as not to ruin that discreetness we were just talking about. ABT Audi S5 styling tweaks include aggressive looking front spoiler and a distinctive rear skirt set with a muffler system and four black chromed end pipes. They do have a profound effect on the way the car looks, but they are not show-offy. The same goes for the wheels. You have a large selection of  19 and 20 inches wheels from  DR, ER-C, GR, and FR models to choose from, in colors like “glossy black” or “matt black”.

In terms of performance, while no power kit has been announced yet for the 2018 engines, ABT Audi S5 is a better performer than the standard model thanks to tweak suspension. The ABT coilover suspension springs available for this model can be adjusted to lower the ride height by 0.6 to 1.5 inches, thus improving the car’s road holding and cornering capabilities.

PostHeaderIcon Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World

Ford F-150

Determining the value of a car brand can be a tricky exercise. There are so many variables to consider that ultimately, the results may differ from one study or another. What we do know is that, at the very least, the cream always rises to the top. The standings may be different depending on who the author of the study is, but it’s pretty much the same automakers making up a majority of the list.

In this exercise, we’re taking a look at the ten most valuable car brands, at least through the eyes of Interbrand, an independent agency that specializes in determining the world’s most valuable brands. Obviously, such a task involves creating a specific set of formulas and calculations using a variety of available information, including a company’s financial forecast and then using it with its own in-house-developed “role of brand” and “brand strength” calculations. If it sounds complicated, it’s because it is, especially in the current automotive climate where buzz words like “electrification,” “ride-sharing,” and “autonomous driving technology” have staked bigger pieces of influence among automakers of all shapes and sizes.

Even then, there are also certain requirements that each automaker has to meet to be eligible to be included in the list. These requirements include having a sales presence on at least three continents and having a third of a company’s revenue coming from its home market. Ultimately, it all boils down to a lot of tech jargon that’s a little above my head. What I can tell you, though, is that the final list that Interbrand came up with is both expected and revealing. A few notable names made it in predictable spots while a few surprise inclusions definitely raised our eyebrows.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

10. Porsche


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 644852

Brand value: $10.13 billion

Top-selling model: Porsche 911

It seems crazy to think that at one point in the last 20 years, Porsche was a struggling automaker that somehow couldn’t get out of its own way. Things have definitely changed since then, and a big part of that is tied into the German automaker’s decision to enter a market that it previously shied away from. Taking a risk, Porsche ultimately decided to build the Cayenne SUV, and the rest is history. Today, Porsche cracks the top 10 list of “most valuable auto brands in the world” for good reason. It’s arguably one of the most beloved automakers in the world, and it’s rounded its model lineup to include a performance saloon known as the Panamera to go with a steady diet of sports cars led by the Porsche 911 Turbo.

9. Volkswagen


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 569578

Brand value: $11.52 billion

Top-selling model: Volkswagen Beetle

If you’re surprised that Volkswagen is so far down on this list, don’t be. This is Volkswagen the automaker, not the auto conglomerate that owns three brands on this list. On the bright side, VW actually posted improvements in terms of its brand value compared to last year. It’s incremental growth of just one percent, but it’s growth compared to 2016 when it actually posted a drop of one percent in value. Still, it could’ve been a lot better for Volkswagen had it not gotten itself mixed into the Dieselgate scandal. Look for a better year ahead for the German automaker when the calendar flips to 2018.

8. Nissan


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 656181

Brand value: $11.54 billion

Top-selling model: Nissan Sentra

If there was an automaker that earned its place in this ranking, it has to be Nissan. That’s not an indictment on the automaker’s past, but a celebration of what it has achieved in recent years. Between launching models that have been positively received and maintaining a level-headed approach in an industry that’s continues to evolve like this one, Nissan has turned in one growth year after another, culminating in a four-percent growth for this year that was good enough to land it in the top 10 list of most valuable car brands in the world.

7. Audi


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 635406

Brand value: $12.02 billion

Top-selling model: Audi A4

The Nissan of Europe, or is Nissan the Audi of Japan? Either way, the comparison fits because Audi always seems to be third fiddle in Europe to BMW and Mercedes-Benz, just like Nissan plays the same role in Japan to Toyota and Honda. That’s not a slight towards either Audi or Nissan because both companies have thrived doing their own thing. In Audi’s case, it has managed to build up a brand that’s worth $12.02 billion, becoming the most valuable auto brand under the Volkswagen Group. This year, Audi even posted a two-percent growth that probably should be bigger had it not been weighed down by Dieselgate. Still, look for Audi to remain competitive to BMW and Mercedes-Benz, as it always has been in recent years.

6. Hyundai


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 533707

Brand Value: $13.2 billion

Top-selling model: Hyundai Elantra

It says a lot about Hyundai’s growth as an automaker that it finds itself on this list with some of the most established brands in the auto industry. This wasn’t always the case though, as the Korean automaker’s surge up to mainstream popularity didn’t happen until the last decade. But, thanks to an aggressive push towards relevancy and the introduction of popular models like the Elantra, Tucson, and Santa Fe, Hyundai’s ascension up the ranks is looking less fluky and more of a result of hard work and dedication. Don’t even be surprised if, by next year, Hyundai finds itself in going up the ladder into a more prominent spot on this list. That’s the kind of outlook we’re now expecting from a company that already increased its value year-on-year by at least five percent.

5. Ford


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 700456

Brand value: $13.64 billion

Top-selling model: Ford F-Series Trucks

Ford is the only American automaker on this list. It is a little bit embarrassing to see what’s become of General Motors and Chrysler, but at least Ford is representing the US here to a certain extent. The good news for the Blue Oval is that it posted a five-percent increase in its own value and getting it up to $13.64 billion. The bad news is that a lot of the automakers its ahead of have as good a chance as any to move up the rankings for next year’s list at the expense of Ford. I personally don’t think that’s going to happen because of the company’s strong foothold in one of the world’s biggest markets, but then again, stranger things have happened so it’s not a certainty that the automaker will retain its spot in the rankings. It is worth pointing out though that of the ten auto brands that made it on this list, only Ford can boast of having a pickup truck as its top-selling model. That counts for a win, right?

4. Honda


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 651046

Brand value: $22.70 billion

Top-selling model: Honda Civic

Barring the unlikely event of seeing something catastrophic come out of Honda, it looks like a certainty that Honda’s going to retain its status as the fourth most valuable auto brand in the world for the next few years. That’s because it’s brand value of $22.70 billion is on an island by itself. Ford needs to almost double its value to be able to even sniff Honda’s, and conversely, the Japanese automaker needs to double its own value in order to come close to competing against the company that sits third on this list. Still, a value of $22.7 billion is nothing to sneeze at, especially when it comes as a result of a three-percent growth compared to its value from the previous year. The timeless popularity of the Honda Civic has a lot to do with Honda being where it is, but so does the continuing presence of its robust crossover and SUV lineup that’s led by the CR-V. Look for Honda to remain one of the most valuable auto brands in the world for all the reasons I just mentioned.

3. BMW


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 629375

Brand value: $41.62 billion

Top-selling model: BMW 3 Series

Well, that was a huge leap, wasn’t it? From Honda’s $22.7 billion in brand value, we move up to BMW’s, which has a brand value of $41.62 billion. This is the power of what BMW has to offer and the niche it has carved for itself – sportier than an Audi, less uptight than a Mercedes – tells you exactly how the German automaker has built up its own brand to become a force to be reckoned with it in the industry. It still has a few miles to go before it can catch up to its biggest rival, but rest assured, the blueprint towards long-term success and sustainability is being put to good use. For one, a plethora of new models with more advanced tech features are scheduled to be released soon to complement some of Bimmer’s most popular model lines. Imagine what kind of cache it can gain with the release of the BMW 8 Series? For all of its success, it is quite ironic that BMW finds itself in this enviable position despite minimal movement on its brand value.

2. Mercedes-Benz


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 536045

Brand value: $47.83 billion

Top-selling model: Mercedes C-Class

The king of German automakers finds itself in the second spot, trailing only the king of Japanese automakers. It should be said that Mercedes’ ascension up the ranks didn’t happen by luck or sheer happenstance. It comes as a result of record-breaking sales that helped pave the way for the company to enjoy its highest profits and revenue in its entire history. Add that to its ever-increasing global popularity and the introduction of affordable models like the CLA-Class, and it becomes clearer and clearer as to why Mercedes-Benz actually increased its brand value by a whopping 10% year-on-year. At the very least, it created a big separation with BMW’s own brand value, something I’m sure the fine folks over at Mercedes are more than happy to point out.

1. Toyota


Money Talks: The 10 Most Valuable Car Brands In The World - image 509693

Brand value: $50.30

Best-selling model: Toyota Corolla

Sitting pretty at the number one spot is Toyota, a position it has held for a few years now on the back of being the biggest automaker in the world. Toyota’s dominance as a carmaker can be best seen in the fact that it still holds a pretty good lead over Mercedes-Benz despite seeing its value take a dip by six percent. That tells you that there’s room for Toyota to have a down year and still reign supreme as the most valuable auto brand in the world. I don’t see the company’s status get challenged for at least a few more years, but that loss in value could become more worrisome if it starts becoming a trend. For now, the auto world still kneels at the feet of Toyota, as do companies like Netflix, Facebook, McDonalds and Disney for that matter.

PostHeaderIcon Audi TT Clubsport Concept Turbo: Blast from the Past!!

Audi has launched the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The TT Clubsport provides a strong reminisce of the Audi 90 IMSA GTO from the 1980’s. Lots of parts for this car have been drawn from Audi Sport Performance Parts. Audi has managed to garner enough attention at the SEMA show with its visually appealing looks.

Let’s find out more about it.

Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept Details


Audi TT Clubsport Concept Turbo: Blast from the Past!! - image 744094

The Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept comes equipped with 2.5-liter, electrically assisted, turbocharged, five-cylinder engine that generates an impressive 600 horsepower; 200 horsepower more than the standard offering. This helps the TT attain naught to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph.

The TT is 5.5 inches wider, thanks to the widened wings. The TT also comes packed with a huge racing fender and a manually adjustable carbon fiber rear spoiler.
The TT has been fused with various parts from the Audi Sport Performance Parts, such as the light-weight 20-inch wheels, an adjustable suspension, and an exhaust system developed with Akrapovic.

Author’s Take

The TT has created roars before and has taken it up by a notch with the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept. Audi also introduced the Audi Sports Parts for the TT RS and R8 V10 models at the SEMA show. Audi has done an incredible job with the TT and definitely gave it a nostalgic touch. We’re still waiting on more details for this concept, but until we get them, you can check out the 2015 Audi TT Clubsport Concept.

2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline

ABT Sportsline is no stranger to working on performance vehicles of German origin and ahead of the 2018 Essen Motor Show, it’s releasing its latest piece de resistance with a kit for the Audi RS3. The kit is available for both sedan and sportback versions of the RS3 and is packing an assortment of different accessories covering the car’s exterior, interior, drivetrain, and suspension.

The result of ABT’s work on the RS3 gives Audi’s performance sedan a whole new personality. Not that it needs one, but there is something to be said for a car like the RS3 that doesn’t get enough attention as it should. The Audi, after all, has to deal with both the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-AMG C63, two of the most established German performance vehicles in the market today. It’s more than capable of holding its own even without the assistance of ABT Sportsline, but if you own an RS3, this king of aftermarket package is one of those offerings that’s going to be hard to turn down. In the end, improvements come in many forms, and in the case of the RS3, there’s enough of them from this program to justify a good long look at the kit.

Continue after the jump to read more about the Audi RS3 by ABT Sportsline

Exterior

  • Front fender vents
  • Revised front grille
  • Rear skirt set that includes rear muff channel and new exhaust system
  • 19- or 20-inch wheels (available in DR, ER-C, ER-F, or FR designs)

2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline - image 744357
“The exterior of the RS3 is only good for a number of styling accessories, including front fender vents and a revised front grille”

It goes without saying that when a tuner prepares a program for a car like the Audi RS3, there’s only a certain amount of changes that can be made to improve the car’s aesthetics. That’s not so much a lack of creativity on the part of the tuner, but a testament to the outstanding design quality of the car. That’s what we have here because the truth is, ABT Sportsline didn’t have to dig deep into its chest of exterior upgrades with its program for the sedan and sportback versions of the RS3.

Based on ABT’s description of the kit, the exterior of the RS3 is only good for a number of styling accessories, including front fender vents and a revised front grille. There is an option though to add a glass black rear skirt set into the cart. It’s easy to make out in the photos because the set itself comes with a rear muffler channel and ABT’s exhaust system. The latter also includes a pair of 102-mm double pipes, each finished in a fancy matte black shade.


2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline - image 744360
“ABT’s offering for this kit revolves around a set of 19- or 20-inch wheels that you can choose in a variety of different designs”

Far more than just being a throwaway addition to the kit, the rear skirt set gives the rear section of the RS3 a more attractive design characteristic. Onto the set of wheels, ABT’s offering for this kit revolves around a set of 19- or 20-inch wheels that you can choose in a variety of different designs. I personally like the “FR” design the best, but the other designs – “DR,” “ER-C,” and “ER-F” – do have their own distinct appeal.

That’s the extent of the upgrades that you can expect for your Audi RS3. It may not be on the same level of other programs in terms of volume, but the quality of what you stand to get speaks for itself. That’s the mark of a true ABT Sportsline tuning kit.

Interior

  • Carbon fiber trim
  • Illuminated door sill plates
  • ABT-branded gear shifter
  • Push-Button ignition
  • Anti roll bars
  • Special floor mats

2018 Audi RS3 Sedan - image 690344

Note: Standard Audi RS3 pictured here.

“The highlight of the offerings is a nice carbon fiber trim, generously distributed throughout the interior to give the RS3 a more premium feel to it”

ABT Sportsline has never been the type of tuner to go all-out on the interior of the cars it develops programs for. But there are upgrades in store for the RS3, just not as expansive as you might like. The highlight of the offerings is a nice carbon fiber trim, generously distributed throughout the interior to give the RS3 a more premium feel to it. The ABT-branded illuminated door sill plates add a nice touch of personalization, while the shifter – ABT-branded as well – and push-button ignition add functional improvements to the whole driving experience of the car. Everything else though can be described as standard tuner additions, including the ho-hum special floor mats.

There is one extra offering that’s of particular interest, and it’s quite frankly, a surprising addition to a car like the RS3. Apparently, ABT Sportsline is also offering to install anti-roll bars at your behest, should you at least decide to take the tuner up on its offer. Not quite sure why it’s there, but it does speak to the breadth of tuning options that are at your disposal when you’re talking to a tuner like ABT Sportsline.

Drivetrain

  • 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine
  • 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque (stock output)
  • 4.0 seconds standard 0-to-60-mph time
  • 155 mph standard electronically limited top speed
  • New ECU unit
  • New exhaust system with two matte black 102-mm (4.01) inch tailpipes
  • 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque (tuned output)
  • 3.8 to 3.9 seconds tuned 0-to-60-mph time
  • 174 mph tuned top speed

2018 Audi RS3 Sedan - image 690352

Note: Standard Audi RS3 pictured here.

“The result of it is an extra output of 60 horsepower and 36 pound-feet of torque”

Since this is the main focus of ABT Sportsline’s tuning kit for the Audi RS3, let’s first set the table on the German automaker’s standard engine features. At the heart of this proud sedan rests a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine that produces an impressive 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. That’s a lot of power for a car like the RS3, but in true aftermarket fashion, “a lot” is never enough when you’re talking to a tuner like ABT Sportsline. Guess what the tuner did then? If you’re thinking about a remapped ECU unit, then give yourselves a pat on the back. That’s exactly what the tuner did and the result of it is an extra output of 60 horsepower and 36 pound-feet of torque. Decent gains in it of themselves, but when you add it to what the RS3 already has, the total output suddenly goes up to 460 ponies and 390 pound-feet of twist.

ABT didn’t say how the extra muscle contributes to its performance time, but considering that the standard RS3 Sedan is able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a shade over four seconds, it stands to reason that with ABT Sportsline’s influence, this RS3 can now hit the same speed mark in around 3.8 to 3.9 seconds. Gnarly.

As far as top speed goes, the tuner did say that with the remapped ECU in place, the RS3 now has an increased, though still limited, top speed of 174 mph. With that kind of power and performance abilities, it would be a travesty if you don’t add the aforementioned ABT exhaust system with its pair of 102 mm (4.01 inches). Throw that into the equation and you’re looking at an attention-grabbing RS3 that will have no problems waking the neighbors.

Suspension

  • New sports springs
  • New brake system

2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline - image 744359

At this point, your Audi RS3 already has cosmetic upgrades, a more powerful engine, and fancy carbon fiber trim on the interior. That’s already a trifecta right there. Ok, let’s add the floor mats too. Quad-fecta? Fantastic four? Regardless, why not complete the whole ABT program with the addition of new sports springs and a meatier braking system? The former should be able to help keep the RS performing in peak abilities when its stretching its legs while the latter is always nice to have around in case you need to slow down from the madness. Either way, both options are on the table from ABT and as is most often the case in the tuning business, better to get the whole lot than skip on the underratedly important bits.

Pricing


2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline - image 744361

The whole kit is scheduled to make its debut at the 2018 Essen Motor Show in January of next year so as you might expect, there are still no pricing details about the whole thing. Don’t worry though because ABT Sportsline isn’t the type to be bashful with announcing pricing figures so expect those to arrive sooner than later. Even better, the tuner has a reparation in the aftermarket scene for being reasonable with the cost of its programs so if you’re going to get this kit for your RS3s, there’s a chance that you’ll be able to afford it, at least if you loosen the purse strings a little.

Competition

Audi RS3 8V by B&B Automobiltechnik


2016 Audi RS3 8V By B&B Automobiltechnik - image 678590

Comparing one program for the Audi RS3 opposite another is actually a pretty straightforward thing to do because there are a number of kits that are in the market today. One rival tuner with a program for the RS3 estate comes by way of B&B Automobiltechnik. This program was presented back in 2016 and it came with a four-stage engine kit that offers a number of different output increases. The Stage 1 kit, for example, returns 430 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, all thanks to a similar remap of the ECU unit. Add an air intake system into the mix and that becomes the Stage 2 kit with 450 horsepower and 483 pound-feet of torque on tap. The Stage 3 kit takes it a step further with the installation of air intake mods, a free-flow sports exhaust system, and a new, in-house, high-performance intercooler and the output goes up again to 485 ponies and 516 pound-feet of torque. Then there’s Stage the Stage 4 kit, which includes every upgrade from the first three stages and adds a bigger and more bespoke turbocharger. The result is an output of 550 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, enough power to propel the RS3 to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 186 mph.

Conclusion


2018 Audi RS3 By ABT Sportsline - image 744358

The name behind the product says it all. In the world of aftermarket tuning, few are as esteemed and trusted as ABT Sportsline. That reputation was earned and has served the tuner well. It’s new aftermarket program for the Audi RS3 may not offer the most powerful engine upgrades, but what you get in return is quality, and the highest level of it. From the aesthetic mods to the output increase, there’s nothing to worry about should you get this kit from the well-respected German tuner.

  • Leave it
    • More powerful options available in the market
    • Not as extensive as I thought

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS5 Coupe RS500 By Manhart Racing

Manhart Racing is known for creating some incredible tuning programs in the past, most recently turning the BMW M5 into an 800-horsepower powerhouse. Now the German tuner is turning its sights on the Audi RS5 with a new program that packs plenty of aftermarket punch. Ok, maybe it’s not as potent as the M5’s kit, but it’s still good enough to bring some extra level of excitement to Audi’s resident mid-size performance coupe.

In keeping with Manhart Racing’s tradition, the aptly named RS500 tuning program is packing the load with power and performance bits. It also features a number of handy visual upgrades in case you’re in the mood to turn your RS5s into something that looks right at home in the Fast and Furious franchise. But enough of the small talk. The RS500 program is largely tied into the objective of giving the Audi RS5 more than what it’s capable of. It’s about giving the RS5 the chance to maximize its potential as a performance car. It’s about turning the spotlight to arguably one of the most underrated performance cars in the market today. Give it some cosmetic upgrades, slap on a few engine upgrades, and dial up the suspension work. That’s the name of Manhart Racing’s RS500 tuning game and the results, well, they certainly speak for themselves. So if any of you own an Audi RS5 and you’re looking to give it an aftermarket touch, you’re going to need to take a long and hard look at what Manhart Racing has on the table.

Exterior

  • Matte black body finish
  • Gold trim accents on the body
  • 21-inch Concept One wheels

2017 Audi RS5 Coupe RS500 By Manhart Racing - image 742831
“The predominantly matte black look of the two-door coupe is visually boosted by the gold accents throughout the body”

This is a pretty straightforward tuning program so don’t expect anything complicated out of it. There aren’t any aerodynamic bits to talk about because there aren’t any to begin with. What Mansard did do was provide a good list of cosmetic upgrades that, at least in my mind, works well on the RS5. The predominantly matte black look of the two-door coupe is visually boosted by the gold accents throughout the body. I especially like the gold racing stripes running the whole length of the RS5. That’s a nice aesthetic touch that brings out a more personable side to the coupe. While I’m at it, the 21-inch Concept One wheels are solid inclusions as well, as are the gold trim surrounding them. It’s going to be next to impossible to notice how it looks when you’re driving the car, but look at how the gold trim separates itself from the wheels and the black rubber of the tires when the RS5 is on the road. Subtle hints like that go a long way in making a car like the two-door Audi look more appealing from a visual point of view.

Interior

Note: Audi RS5 pictured here.

One thing that must be said about Manhart Racing’s tuning program. It usually doesn’t showcase its interior upgrade offerings in public because most of it is actually of the personalization variety. That’s not to say that the tuner is lacking in this department. On the contrary, Manhart’s actually well versed in the art of interior customization, as shown by some of its previous works. So in the absence of any relevant details surrounding what’s available for the Audi RS5, feel free to let your imaginations run wild on what you can do to the interior of your RS5s. Some fancy leather upholstery perhaps? Maybe throw in some wood or carbon fiber trim?

Drivetrain

  • Software engine update
  • New output of 499 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque
  • Optional stainless steel exhaust system

“The RS5’s stock output of 450 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque gets boosted to a tidy 499 horses and 517 pound-feet of twist.”

Manhart Racing hasn’t disclosed the specifics of the engine upgrade, but it’s easy to figure out that the whole program revolves around a software tune, something akin at least to its MHTronik tuning module that nets as much as 60 extra horsepower out of any engine it’s used on. In this case, the Audi RS5’s 2.9-liter bi-turbo V-6 engine is the lucky unit that’s going to be the recipient of Manhart Racing’s handiwork. The results are what you’d expect too as the RS5’s stock output of 450 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque gets boosted to a tidy 499 horses and 517 pound-feet of twist. That computes to an extra 49 ponies and 74 pound-feet of torque, right around the vicinity of what you can expect from the German tuner’s software tuning kit.

Needless to say, the extra shot of power should translate better performance times for the RS5. The tuner hasn’t announced the exact figures at this point, but with the standard RS5 Coupe capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 174 mph, it stands to reason that the modified RS5 can cover the same distance in about 3.8 seconds before peaking at a top speed that’s in the neighborhood of 174 mph. Regardless of the actual figures, a 500-horsepower Audi RS5 sounds like a great investment to me. Last but certainly not least is a optional stainless steel exhaust system that itself can accommodate catless downpipes.

Suspension

Accompanying the cosmetic and engine upgrades that are included in the RS500 build is a custom KW coilover suspension kit. Not only does it bring the ride closer to the ground, but it also helps facilitate an improved ride for the Audi RS5, the kind that you won’t be able to get if you buy the two-door coupe in stock form and leave it as it is.

Pricing


2017 Audi RS5 Coupe RS500 By Manhart Racing - image 742835

The total price of the RS500 program is fluid depending on how much work is done on the car’s interior. You can take comfort though by knowing that the whole kit probably won’t be as expensive as you think, especially with how simple it all is from the perspective of the whole RS500 kit. In lieu of that, I’m expecting the price tag for this program to sit somewhere in the $20,000 range, maybe even cheaper than that provided that you don’t request any exotic leather on the cabin of the coupe.

Competition

Truth be told, there haven’t been that many tuning programs to come out for the Audi RS5. I don’t exactly know the reason behind it, but it is a telling reminder that not all aftermarket kits are created equal.That’s not to say that the RS5 has been ignored by this subsection of the auto industry because there have been some programs developed specifically for it in the past. One of these programs comes to us by way of mcchip, which unveiled its kit for the RS5 back in 2013 for that year’s version of the sports coupe. That kit followed a different blueprint though because it revolved largely around a three-stage engine upgrade that got as much as 600 horsepower and 435 pound-feet of torque out of the RS5’s old 4.2-liter V-8 mill. That’s a lot of power for an older model of the RS5, but then again, the engine that model carried was bigger than the new-generation model. Just goes to show you how much aftermarket potential the RS5, regardless of model year, really has.

Conclusion


2017 Audi RS5 Coupe RS500 By Manhart Racing - image 742828

I’ve always found it intriguing – maybe even weird – that the Audi RS5 doesn’t get as many tuning programs as some of its rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz AMG. Maybe it’s because the two-door Audi sports coupe isn’t as popular as its rivals, but whatever the case may be, I’m actually happy that Manhart Racing took a stab at developing one. It may not be the most comprehensive tuning kit in the world, but it’s more than enough to accomplish its goal of bringing something new to the table for the RS5. On that end, I’d call Manhart’s RS500 tuning a kit something that’s worth a long look should you be in the market for an aftermarket program for your RS5s.

  • Leave it
    • Expected something more
    • Availability could be an issue

PostHeaderIcon Like Lots of Tech? You Need the Audi A7 in your Life

The Audi A7 recently made its debut, and it should come as no surprise that it took a lot of DNA from it’s bigger brother, the Audi A8. A lot of this DNA includes an insane amount of technology that shows just how far we’ve come in this department over the last 20 years. Digital Displays in cars were once practically non-existent, and those that did have them didn’t have anything anywhere near as cool as we have today. With that in mind, the Audi A7 (and the A8 for that matter) really push things to the limit with technology, and that’s what we’re here to talk about today.

First off, let me point out that you’re going to have to pay up if you want the goods, but in the end, it’s really worth it if you’re into this kind of stuff. You want to hit up the checkbox for the MMI Navigation Plus system that gives you the Audi Digital Cockpit, and the MMI navigation. I mean, the graphics are beautiful, the infotainment screen is almost too gorgeous to allow in a car (talk about distracted driving,) and the way that ten-inch display in the center stack blends in so nicely with the glass panel around it, the whole package just comes together nice and clean. The best part is that the system works like a smartphone in that you can use the upper screen to control most infotainment system functions, meaning there is no more control knob. And, the lower screen is used to control various creature comforts – that means there are far fewer buttons inside the vehicle.

There’s a lot what you find in the infotainment system, though. We’re talking about as many as 39 driver assistance features (these are available via three different packages, so they don’t come cheap,) and there’s the option for voice control as well. And, when you use this voice control, the system accesses data stored locally with the vehicle and in the Audi cloud. A head-up display can be had for some extra moolah and, sometime in 2018, Audi will activate the garage and parking pilot systems which should park your car for you. And, to bring the whole technology package together, the A7 is a mild hybrid as well, which means it can freewheel at certain speeds with the engine off, only starting when needed. A front-facing camera is also used to help improve start\stop functionality.

Now, obviously, a lot of this technology is just really over the top. The mild hybrid technology doesn’t even save you a whole liter per 100km driven, and until the A7 can locate a parking spot and park itself, the parking and garage assistant just seem to be in place for people who like the showoff or are simply too lazy to park themselves. Be that as it may, the A7 is very technological and, if you’re into technology, it’s certainly something you want to look into. This is what the future of all cars looks like – few buttons, more touch displays, more hybrid technology – but it still comes at a cost. What do you guys think of the new A7’s technology? Let us know in the comments section below

PostHeaderIcon The New Audi A7 Is Here, But Its Sporty Heritage Remains The Same

Out of a rich history that originates in the early 20th century, Audi as we know it was born from corporate mergers in 1969. The first Audi model came to the U.S. for the 1970 model year, and the rest is automotive history. Audi’s latest model, the 2019 A7 Sportback, just took center stage at a debut event in Ingolstadt, Germany, Audi’s hometown. The four-door coupe is stunningly gorgeous and features some cutting-edge technology and high-horsepower drivetrains.

But, it was 1992 that Audi earnestly began competing in the sports sedan segment. The model of choice: The S4. This compact sedan came with a potent, 2.2-liter turbocharged inline five-cylinder good for 227 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The little five boasted high-tech stuff for its day, too, including dual overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, and an air-to-water intercooler for the turbo. A five-speed manual transmission was the only gearbox offered. Of course, being an Audi, the 1992 S4 came with Quattro AWD. Even this version of Quattro could split torque variability between the front and rear axles depending on traction, sending as much as 70 percent to the front wheels. Fuel economy wasn’t a strong suit, however, only returning an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Then again, that’s pretty good for a 227-horse, AWD car from the early 1990s.

Audi wasn’t afraid of making a limited-edition car for the U.S., either, as only 250 examples of the ’92 S4 came Stateside. More became available for the 1993 model though. Not surprisingly, all were sold out rather quickly, despite its hefty price tag of $44,750. That’s roughly $80,000 today. Still, Audi quickly built its reputation here in the U.S. and has seen big success ever since.

PostHeaderIcon EIC Thoughts: Audi Finally Nails a Generational Shift with the New Audi A7

I will openly admit that I’ve been very harsh toward the German brands – all of them – for following the “same sausage, different length” philosophy (Audi, this is you) or for simply changing very little when it comes to facelifts or generational shifts. Admittedly, I expected the same from Audi when it came to the A7. But, while there are a lot of similarities to the A8, the A7 still stands out as its own model thanks to Audi’s ambition to provide simple evolutionary enhancements to not only the exterior but the interior too. In comparison to the A8, the A7 gets additional body lines on the hood but lacks the strong line below the waist. Inside, the dash is more defined, while things like the center console and trim panels have been tweaked just enough to keep things comfortable. Sure, it’s a bit smaller, but everything is so well proportioned inside and out that it’s almost like it was meant to be this way.

And, even better is the fact that there are options-a-plenty. You get the MMI system by default, but to get the Virtual cockpit you have to go with the MMI Nav Plus. I don’t necessarily like that idea, but it is what it is. A total of four sound systems are for the taking, including a very powerful Bang & Olufsen advanced sound system. You can also opt for the Audi Ai Parking Pilot and Remote Garage Pilot, but those won’t be activated until later on in 2018. What I really want to know is what engines will be available once the A7 goes into production. Audi already has the base 3.0-liter (hybridized, of course) that delivers 340 ponies and 368 pound-feet, but what else will be on the docket? I would love to see a turbo V-8, but I doubt it will happen. An S7 and RS7 are almost mandatory, and with any luck, the RS7 may get the turbo V-8 – eh, a man can hope anyway, right?

At the end of the day, the A7 certainly doesn’t disappoint, but I am worried about one thing. Considering the fact that the A7 borrows heavily from the A8, will the rest of the lineup eventually end up looking just like the two range-topping models? History tells me yes, and that’s a bad thing, as Audi could really use some diversity in its lineup, but at the same time, the brand’s strategy seems to be working so perhaps I should be less critical. Is this the world we live in now? Where every automaker makes one design, then copy and pastes it onto a proportionately smaller canvas? I really hope not, but who could blame you if you were starting to think that way? I certainly won’t because it seems to me like I see a lot of the same designs popping up model after model, and that doesn’t say a lot for individuality at all.

What do you guys think? Is the A7 a hit or a dud? Are automakers being too eager and pushy with their design consistency between models, changing little outside of size and engine output? Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Audi A7

What started as the Audi Sportback Concept in 2009 took a quick turn and morphed into the Audi A7 Sportback for 2010. It’s been seven years since the first A7 rolled into our presence and you know what that means – it’s time for the second-gen model to finally make its way into the limelight, and make its way it did as Audi looked back on its history and presented us with what is, essentially, a hatchback A8 with some serious steroid-induced muscles to go with an equally sized bad attitude. The whole package includes the wide, low grille from the A8 which is flanked on each side by evolved A8 headlights and a pair of fake vents down below. The base motivator provides the same horsepower as the outgoing model (340 ponies) but delivers a bit more torque.

The interior is also a focal point of the second-gen model as it sees a pretty serious upgrade over the previous model and borrows some cues from the A8 while at the same time pushing that A8 DNA to a serious extreme. All told, the A7 is much more attractive inside and out in comparison to the outgoing model, but it comes off a bit slower to 60 mph and carries the same limited top speed. So, if it’s performance increases that you’re looking for, you might want to check out another German manufacturer, but if you’re all about having fresh looks in a luxurious and sexy package, you’ll want to keep reading and check out the full review below.

Exterior

  • New grille is wider and lower
  • A8 headlights evolved
  • Muscular hood
  • Half an inch taller but 8 inches thinner
  • 21-inch wheels
  • Dynamic styling

“Sure, the exterior does feature a lot of the cues seen on the new A8, and these will trickle down to the rest of the lineup, but for now, the exterior is quite fresh”

Usually, this is where I bash Audi for being lazy or passive with its generational shift, but I have to say I’m somewhat impressed. Sure, the exterior does feature a lot of the cues seen on the new A8, and these will trickle down to the rest of the lineup, but for now, the exterior is quite fresh. Up front sits that wide, single-frame grille first seen on the Audi Quattro concept and then later on the A8. It represents the next stage of evolution for Audi’s grille design with a look that’s reinforced by the small air dam down on the lower lip. Flaking the grille on either side is a rather large fake air vent with a somewhat stylish black insert for extra character. Then, there are the headlights. Now, if you haven’t been paying attention lately, you probably think you’ve seen these before. Well, you wouldn’t exactly be wrong as the new A8 features headlights of the same shape. However, the A7 sees an evolution of these that includes those unique running lamps that also double as amber lights when signaling.

The hood takes on a new look that includes more muscular lines and a slightly elevated profile in comparison to the outgoing model. The outside lines are more elevated than their more centered counterparts, which provides a bit of contrast and prowess up front. As you walk along the side of the new A7, you would be blind if you didn’t notice those enticingly designed 21-inch wheels and the muscular body line in the rear quarters. The stationary glass comes to a point a little lower in the rear while the trim around the windows are thinner than ever and, despite being chrome, blend in nicely with both light grey and blue models seen here. The most intriguing feature from this view is the roof which has a smooth but steep grade to it, vaguely reminiscent of the Porsche 911.


2019 Audi A7 - image 739612
“Around back is where the most interesting, and painfully obvious design can be found”

Around back is where the most interesting, and painfully obvious design can be found. Take a look at those taillights. They just scream Bugatti and are quite attractive, however, I’m not so sure that I’m fond of the way the outer units are linked by the thin LED strip. It almost looks as if it’s one of those funky stitch band-aids. Anyway, those vertical LED strips change become will flash in sequence with the application of the turn signals while the lower units will illuminate brightly when the brake lights are pressed. Down below, a simple black and body-colored insert fills the area normally reserved for a diffuser or exhaust outlets.

All told, the car is quite attractive but is quite a bit thinner above the waistline. Audi hasn’t released all specifications yet, but it comes in at 195.6-inches long, 75.6-inches wide, and 56.4-inches long. It has a wheelbase of 115.2. To put that into perspective the wheelbase and height has increased by half an inch over the outgoing model while the length has dropped by 0.6 inches. Finally, the second-gen model is actually 8.6-inches shorter thinner than the outgoing model. Again, Audi has yet to release interior dimensions, but I’m guessing that shoulder and hip room will suffer inside due to this, but we shall see. For now, enjoy the images and move on to the interior section when you’re ready – there’s lots to talk about there too!

“It takes the boring and lazy lines of the last model and replaces them with young, vibrant, and intelligent-looking design cues”

Remember when I said that I was somewhat impressed with Audi’s work on the A7? Well, I’m going to double down on that statement as this interior is absolutely revolutionary. It takes the boring and lazy lines of the last model and replaces them with young, vibrant, and intelligent-looking design cues that makes you wonder whether or not Audi poached someone from a company that knows how to stir things up a bit. First off, the dash gets a stepped look that provides a large plateau up top with an angular overhang above the instrument cluster the vents are positioned on the face of this plateau and almost look like gates sitting atop the lower step on the face of the dash. The center stack is graced by a 10.1-inch screen that is downright classy in comparison to the outgoing model with the gloss black surround glass blending nicely into the dash. When the screen turns off, it all looks like one big piece – a very nice touch.
Down below sits a smaller, 8.6-inch touch screen that offers up control for the climate control system, comfort system, and text input.

Despite the fact that the car itself is actually just over a half-inch shorter than the outgoing model, it’s quite surprising that the interior looks so long up front. The overall design of the center console and the smaller dash itself yields lots of extra room, and the longer-look of the console lends a helping hand to the feeling of space and length. The steering wheel on the base model doesn’t get a flat bottom or anything of that nature, but the spokes of the steering wheel extend outward a bit with the central hub, which is smaller, sitting deeper in the wheel to provide a cone feeling. Ahead of the wheel, you’ll see a typical instrument cluster, but if you go with the MMI Navigation Plus option, you’ll get full navigation to go with the 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit as displayed above.


2019 Audi A7 - image 739581
“Options include Valcona Leather upholstery, ambient lighting, MMI Navigation, MMI Navigation plus (with virtual cockpit) and your selection of four sounds systems”

Options include Valcona Leather upholstery, ambient lighting, MMI Navigation, MMI Navigation plus (with virtual cockpit) and your selection of four sounds systems, with the range-topping model being the usual Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System. And, sometime in 2018, the A7 should see the Audi AI Parking Pilot and Audi AI Remote Garage Pilot come to life, which will allow the car to essentially park itself in your parking spot or garage at the press of a button. This system, depending on which model you have, can have up to five radar sensors, five cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, and a laser scanner – talk about some technology, huh?

Three driver assistance packages are available that, in all, offer up as many as 39 different driver assistance features. This is getting a little ridiculous, I know, but this isn’t a joke. Those three packages include the Audi AI parking package, the City assist package, and the
Tour assist package. You’ll have to check with your local dealer when the new A7 goes on sale if you’re interested in the dirty details, but until that happens, keep reading to learn more about what’s happening under that hood!

“All models of the A7 will be considered mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV) which operate a little differently than the typical hybrids on the road today”

If you’re going to go sign over a check for the new Audi A7, you should probably know that you’re also buying a hybrid vehicle. That’s right; Audi is forcing hybrid technology on you without so much as an option to go with an all-engine system. All models of the A7 will be considered mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV) which operate a little differently than the typical hybrids on the road today but operate under the same principals. A small lithium-ion battery pack is on board that works with a belt alternator starter to recuperate performance while braking – essentially turning your wasted inertial energy into an electrical voltage that can be used later on to freewheel at speeds between 34.2 and 99.4 mph with the engine deactivated, with the engine starting via that BAS only when necessary and it should do so seamlessly as well.

With that in mind, this system will be connected to a 48-volt electrical system (36-volts more than the usual 12-volt systems found in a majority of cars built prior to 2010) This holds true for both V-6 engines on offer with the Sportback, however, we only know about one of those engines – the one available in the base model that will be available when production starts in the near future. The trim level is known as the A7 55 TFSI (if you need help understanding the naming structure, check out our breakdown here) and holds a 3.0-liter V-6 under the hood. Like the outgoing model, it delivers just 340 horsepower, but it does see an increase to 368.8 pound-feet of torque, 43.8 pound-feet more than the outgoing model.

“The A7 Sportback makes the 62-mph sprint from a dead stop in 5.3 seconds which is, oddly, a tenth of a second slower than the outgoing model”

With this engine in tow, the A7 Sportback makes the 62-mph sprint from a dead stop in 5.3 seconds which is, oddly, a tenth of a second slower than the outgoing model. Top speed is set at a very German 155 mph and, according to Audi, the 3.0-liter can achieve 6.8-liters per 100km fuel economy or about 34.6 mpg – not bad for a car this size. Remember when only compact Japanese cars could pull those figures?

It doesn’t all stop there, though. One of the coolest options you can for is the dynamic-all-wheel steering. When paired with the updated electronic chassis system and air suspension system, you’ll find the new A7, according to Audi, is more agile and nimble before – apparently, delivering true GT-style handling and performance. Wheel sizes can be had as high as 21-inches with 255/35-series tires that match aluminum caliper brakes with the largest brake rotors measuring 15.7 inches in diameter. Four suspension systems are on the option block, with your standard steel spring system being the base option, or the sport suspension system being the next best option with a 0.4-inch body drop as well. There’s also an electronically controlled damping system and a self-leveling adaptive air suspension system as well.

Drivetrain Specifications

Engine 3.0 V-6 TFSI
Horsepower 340 HP
Torque 368 LB-FT
0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) 5.3 seconds
Top Speed 250 km/h (155.3 mph)

Pricing

Pricing information for the new A7 is quite limited at this point. The entry-level 55 TFSI will be the initial model to hit dealers, and it will come in at €67,800. Pricing will go up from there, but you’ll have to wait unitl Febuary of 2018 to see what other trims and pricing to expect.

BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo

Essentially a mix between a sedan, a station wagon, and an SUV, the 6 Series GT is BMW’s answer to the Audi A7 Sportback, and it serves as the resident funkymobile in the Bimmers lineup. It has all of the luxuriousness you would expect on the inside while coming in significantly taller, wider, and longer than the new A7. The base model includes a 2.0-liter that’s good for 258 ponies and 295 pound-feet of torque. The next level up is a 3.0-liter inline-six that’s good for 340 ponies and 332 pound-feet – your real A7 competitor. Finally, there’s a 3.0-liter diesel that’s good for just 265 horsepower but does pump out some 457 pound-feet of torque. Pricing for the 6 Series is a mystery at the moment, but it should start out around $61,000 or so.

Mercedes CLS Coupe

Mercedes’ resident Sportback comes with a CLS badge, and it features typical Mercedes design with an AMG grill, and a wide mouth down below that is flanked by a large pair of Mercedes corner vents. The exterior design is sharp, as is the interior, while two engine options will fulfill your need for speed and power. In the base model, you get a 4.7-liter V-8 that’s good for 402 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It can sprint to 60 mph in as little as 4.9 seconds. If that’s not good enough for you, you can jump up to the AMG showroom and snag yourself an AMG CLS 63 S Coupe, which is motivated by a hand-built 5.5-liter V-8 with 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet on tap. It’ll get you to 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds. Pricing starts out at $75,150 or $77,650 if you want 4MATIC AWD. The range-topping AMG model will set you back a whopping $108,900.

Conclusion


2019 Audi A7 - image 739570

This is one of those cases where I almost feel horrible for bashing Audi so much in the past. Normally the company does very little to improve its generational or facelifted models, but the brand really did go all out with the new A7. Unfortunately, this will probably be short-lived, as everything you see here has pretty much trickled down from the A8 and will slowly trickle down to the rest of the lineup. The A7 may look fresh now, but by 2020 or 2021, you’ll find that the lesser models in the lineup have the same styling cues and you near-new A7 won’t be quite so fresh anymore. Be that as it may, the A7 is, for now, quite impressive, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to find myself driving one on occasion. How about you? Does the new A7 tickle your fancy or would you prefer something else? Let us know what you would like in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Sport Isn’t Messing Around; Plans Five New Models By 2020

You can forgive Audi Sport for being a little too eager to showcase itself as a full-fledged performance brand. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when the company, then known as Quattro GmbH, had little to show in the way of performance models. But, times have changed, and Audi Sport is at the forefront of that change. It now has 11 models to speak of, including the R8 supercar. More importantly, it’s planning to further expand its offerings with five new models earmarked to be released by 2020. Considering that we’re already close to jumping into 2018, Audi Sport’s roadmap calls for all five models to be released sometime in the next two years and change.

It’s still not clear as to which performance models Audi Sport is looking into, but we do know that in addition to the coupe and convertible versions of the R8, the performance brand also has sedan and hatchback versions of the RS3 in the fold. Then there’s the RS4 Avant, RS5 Coupe, RS6 Avant, RS7 Sportback, RS Q3, and coupe and convertible versions of the TT RS sports car. That’s 11 models in total, not counting the S8 Plus. There are a number of possibilities on what performance models Audi Sport plans to introduce. In any event, there’s a lot going on within Audi Sport these days, and it figures that with all the plans it’s making, the next two years is going to be a lot busier. Who knows, we might even see the other Audi Sport performance car that’s been in the rumors lately…

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

What can we expect from Audi Sport in the next two-plus years?


2018 Audi RS5 - image 708144
“Looking at its current lineup, a convertible version of the RS5 figures to be an early favorite to shift into production”

Looking at its current lineup, a convertible version of the RS5 figures to be an early favorite to shift into production. Don’t sleep on the possibility of an RS4 sedan and an RS6 sedan also being considered. Should Audi eschew these models, RS-branded crossovers could also be in the mix.

That’s all well and good, but what I’m really curious about now is this one car that was in the rumor mill a month ago: an Audi hypercar.

Remember back in late August when none other than Audi Sport CEO Stephan Winkelmann talked to Automotive News and said that he’s in favor of bringing an Audi hypercar to life? In his own words, he said that a hypercar is something that Audi Sport not only “deserves,” but more importantly, that there’s “demand outside” for one and that the brand’s customer base is “looking for one.”

Given the sheer number of hypercars that we’ve seen in the past five years, it’s not entirely out of the question that Audi is considering building its own. After all, it’s become apparent from how popular hypercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder are that there’s a huge market for these cars, price tags notwithstanding. Even the two newest entries to this ultra-exclusive segment – the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the Mercedes-AMG Project One – are expected to sell out if they’re not already.

Clearly, this is a market that’s fertile at the moment, and Audi Sport would be foolish to not, at the very least, consider planting its own seed. Whether it does so or not is another question entirely but, from the way the automotive winds are blowing, I’m willing to bet that at least one of the brand’s planned five-model expansion will be a hypercar.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Audi R8 V6 – First Details

As R8 fans are well aware, the new generation Mk2 version of the super car was released with only the V10 engine. That had to do with econmoy concerns and the V8 not making much sense cost-wise. But if the V10 is just too much for you, do not despair because there is a new Audi R8 V6 in the works which will be cheaper and relatively frugal. 

To be released next year as an entry-level model, the 2019 Audi R8 V6 will get a turbocharged, 90-degree, 2.9 liter V6 engine jointly developed by Porsche and Audi. The unit is already in use in the Panamera and the new RS4. Currently, the V6 has an output of around 450 horsepower. But with some tweaks and adjustments it could make up to 500 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque in the R8. Mind you, according to insiders the V6-powered R8 will come with more than one power output option. It’ll probably be divided into R8 V6 and R8 V6 Performance, with the latter getting the full-fat 500 horsepower.

Test mules for the new Audi R8 V6 have already been spotted out and about, and they indicated visual changes over the V10 model are going to be minimal. There will be some changes to the rear which has to do with smaller exhaust pipes – an advantage of the smaller V6 engine. But changes are to an uninterested eye the V6 version will look identical to the V10. While that is good news for the V6 buyers who pay a lot less money, it may not sit well with the V10 owners. We just hope the car sounds alright. It won’t have the sweet rumble of the V8, but let’s hope the turbos won’t kill all of the V6’s soprano notes.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Q8

After five years of rumors that began when Audi trademarked the Q8 name in 2012, the German company finally unveiled its proposition against the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Actually, the crossover introduced at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show is just a concept for now, but a production model is scheduled to follow soon.

When BMW introduced the X6 in 2009, a new segment was born. But although the crossover BMW describes as a Sports Activity Coupe proved somewhat popular with SUV enthusiasts, the trend didn’t catch on with other automakers until 2013. That’s when Mercedes-Benz revealed plans to develop a coupe-like crossover based on the M-Class. Shortly after, rumors of a Cayenne Coupe emerged, signaling that Germany’s finest automakers finally pay more attention to this niche. Although the details are still under wraps as of May 2017, a test car has already been spotted on public roads, a sign that the production Q8 isn’t far. Join me in my speculative review to find out what we already know about the sporty crossover.

Updated 10/04/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Audi Q8 out for a new testing session, and this time we have more clear images of the interior.

Exterior


2018 Audi Q8 - image 705596

Essentially developed as a more emotional and sporty version of the Q7, the Q8 will borrow many of its styling cues from the Q8 concept. Granted, it won’t be as wild as the latter, but the camouflaged test cars appear to sport similar features. For instance, the “singleframe” grille is only slight smaller than the concept, which gives the crossover a sporty stance. Likewise, the headlamps are almost identical as far as shape and size go, although they use a different LED layout. Bigger differences can be spotted below, where the side air vents are smaller and lack the aluminum surround the make the Q8 concept stand out. Also, the lower intake is narrower, while the splitter seen on the concept is missing. Still, the Q8 definitely looks sportier than the Q7 up front.

It’s difficult to tell what Audi changed on the sides due to the swirly camo pattern, but it’s pretty obvious that the side mirrors are larger, while the wheel arches are not as pronounced as the concept’s. Likewise, Audi scrapped the concept’s beefed-up rear fenders. Not surprising really, but not such a big deal given the sporty design.

“Essentially developed as a more emotional and sporty version of the Q7, the Q8 will borrow many of its styling cues from the Q8 concept.”

More changes are in store around back, and the biggest of them is in the taillight department. While the concept SUV has Porsche-style lights that run across the entire width of the rear fascia, the test car appears to sport Audi-specific units on each side. Also, the bumper is less aggressive and lacks the sporty diffuser seen on the concept. Other features that set the production model apart include a simpler roof spoiler, narrower D-pillars, and different wheels.

The sporty SUV rides on Volkswagen’s second-generation MLB platform, also shared by the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg, Bentley Bentayga, and the upcoming Lamborghini Urus.

Interior


2018 Audi Q8 - image 718282

While the Q7 and Q8 will be a bit different as far as exterior design goes, the two will share the same technology on the inside. I wouldn’t bet on the Q8 borrowing too many features from the concept car, but a clean dashboard design and sporty seats are definitely on the table.

Note: Q8 concept pictured on the left, Q7 concept pictured on the right.

“Naturally, the Q8’s cabin will be packed with the finest materials we can expect from an automaker such as Audi.”

The spy shots confirm that it will get the same continuous air vent strip seen in current Audis, and the clean center stack and digital instrument cluster seen in the Q7. There’s an infotainment screen atop the dashboard, and another display in the center stack, just above the gear lever area. The latter seems to provide access to the air conditioning system, among other functions, and its lower aluminum section includes the engine start button.

Naturally, the Q8’s cabin will be packed with the finest materials we can expect from an automaker such as Audi. The seats will be wrapped in leather and Alcantara in several color options and complemented by a host of aluminum and wood trims, including Beaufort walnut. The crossover will also benefit from a new MMI system featuring intelligent suggestions for different tasks, including searching for specific song titles or navigation destinations. As far as entertainment goes, the Q8 will probably come with one or optionally two 10.1-inch tablets as rear seat monitors.

Drivetrain


2017 - 2018 Audi Q7 - image 610941

Note: Audi Q7 engine pictured here.

Much like the Q7, the Q8 will receive a range of four-cylinder and V-6 engines.

In the Q7, the 2.0-liter four-banger cranks out 252 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. Next in line is a 3.0-liter V-6 making 333 ponies and 325 pound-feet of torque, which is the most powerful gasoline unit now that Audi has dropped the 4.2-liter V-8 for the SUV.

Moving over to diesels, the familiar 3.0-liter TDI churns 272 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, while a second version of the turbo-diesel V-6 generates 218 horses and 369 pound-feet of twist.

“Much like the Q7, the Q8 will receive a range of four-cylinder and V-6 engines.”

A high-performance RS Q8 is also in the books according to reports, but it remains to be seen what specific engine it will use.

A Q8 e-tron version is also likely. This model will pair a 3.0-liter TDI and an electric motor built into the eight-speed automatic transmission. The combo develops 373 horses and 516 pound-feet of torque in the Q7 and provides a 34.8-miles of range on electric power only.

Expect these figures to change for the Q8, as most of the drivetrains above will receive an update before the crossover arrives in dealerships. Or so it should.

Prices

Audi has yet to announce a specific timetable for the Q8’s arrival, but word has it the SUV will arrive in time for the 2018 model year. According to Autocar, the Q8 will retail from £50,000 in the UK, with the range-topping RS Q8 version priced from around £90,000. These figures convert to $66.200 and $119,000, respectively, as of July 2016.

The first true coupe-like SUV available on the market received an extensive update for the 2015 model year. Highlights include a narrower front grille, a more aggressive front bumper, and revised taillights and exhaust pipes around back. The crossover is also 20 pounds lighter than its predecessor, a noteworthy improvement given its slightly longer and wider body shell. Under the hood, the second-gen X6 carried on with the same engine choices, including the 3.0-liter inline-six and the 4.4-liter V-8. While the former carried over unchanged, making the same 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, the latter got its output increased from 400 ponies to 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. Pricing starts from $60,600 for the 2016 model year.

Launched for the 2016 model year, the GLE Coupe is Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X6. Sporting a similar stance, but with Mercedes-specific cues, the GLE Coupe is available with an array of gasoline and diesel engines. In the U.S., it is sold in its sportiest iteration, namely the GLE 450 AMG 4Matic, which uses a bi-turbo, 3.0-liter, V-6 engine rated at 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. In other markets, Mercedes offers two more engines. A diesel powerplant that cranks out 258 ponies and 457 pound-feet in the base GLE 350d 4Matic model, while the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 mounted in the AMG sport version pumps 333 horses and 354 pound-feet in the GLE 400 4Matic. U.S. pricing starts from $65,100.

2018 Audi Q8 - image 705386

It’s way too early to draw a conclusion, but it’s exciting to see Audi expanding into a new market. The BMW X6 is no longer solo in its segment, and it appears all the major German companies are working on a competitor. With the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe already in showrooms and the Porsche Cayenne Coupe likely already underway, we’re about to witness a new battle of the titans.

Update History

Updated 05/29/2017: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Audi Q8 out for a new testing session at the famous Nurbugring race track.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Audi A8 (UK-Spec) Priced from £69,100

From early 2018 customers in the UK can expect the launch of the new Audi A8. Set to be one of the most technologically-advanced cars in its segment, the 2018 A8 comes with refreshed design, autonomous technologies, and MHEV drivetrain electrification across the range. It tries to undercut the competition by offering better value for money. 

We’re not sure if that’s the right strategy in the luxury segment where price isn’t really an issue for most customers, but the 2018 Audi A8 has a starting price of just £69,100. Audi is yet to release detailed specifications of this model, so it’s not clear how much of the awesome technologies they have introduced for the A8 will be fitted as standard on the 69 grand base model. But it should benefit from a bunch of automated driving systems such as Audi AI traffic jam pilot and parking pilot.

The UK-Spec Audi A8 and A8L also come with  fully digital Audi Virtual Cockpit, the high definition colour head-up display and internet-based Audi Connect services to MMI Navigation Plus and Audi Phonebox wireless smartphone charging. There’s also standard LED lights, adaptive cruise assist with Stop&Go, front and rear parking sensors supplemented by a rear camera, lane departure warning with emergency assist and the Audi Pre-sense collision avoidance and mitigation system. Inside you can enjoy Valcona leather and optional relaxation seat which features four different adjustment options and a footrest with heat and massage functions.

In Britain the 2018 Audi A8 launches with two V6 engines including a 3.0 TDI diesel and a 3.0 TFSI petrol with 286PS and 340PS respectively. Later in the year a 4.0-litre V8 TDI with 435PS and a 6.0 liter W12 petrol unit will become available. All four engines feature mild hybrid technology (MHEV, mild hybrid electric vehicle).

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS4 Sedan

First introduced in 2000, the RS4 has evolved into one of Audi’s most iconic nameplates, despite being available for short periods of time with each generation. First offered between 2000 and 2001, it returned for 2006-2008, and then again for 2012-2015. Each time as a station wagon, but Audi made an exception and offered a sedan between 2006 and 2008. Come 2018 and the Audi RS4 returns for the third time, again in the Avant body styles. But this time around word has it that Audi is also planning to revive the short-lived four-door sedan, which may also return to the United States. While the German firm is mum on the matter, I put together a speculative review with what it may bring to the table.

The fact that the RS4 sedan didn’t return after 2008 is a bit shocking if you ask me. Audi is super competitive in just about every niche and it’s even trying to create its own, but for some reason it doesn’t really want a piece of the action where BMW and Mercedes-Benz are making the big headlines. The decision to offer the RS4 as a wagon only seems strange to say the least with Audi’s latest competitor for the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63 dates all the way back to 2008. But apparently Audi is finally coming to its senses and a new RS4 sedan might be just around the corner.

Updated 10/02/2017:
We updated the speculative review with a new rendering and new information. Check it out below.

Continue reading to learn more about the upcoming Audi RS4 Sedan.

Exterior


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730947
“Just take the more aggressive cues of the RS4 Avant and slap them on the A4 sedan and you get the real deal”

The RS4 sedan may seem like a mystery just now, but it really isn’t. Just take the more aggressive cues of the RS4 Avant and slap them on the A4 sedan and you get the real deal. And it’s exactly what this rendering provided by X-Tomi Design is all about.

Up front, we can see the RS-style honeycomb grille, as well as the “quattro” lettering underneath the license plate and the “RS4” badge on the mesh. Below, there’s a sportier bumper with larger air vents, both of which have the same honeycomb grille. The thin intake just below the main grille is finished in black, with the lower element designed to look like a splitter. The rendering also includes the the Matrix LED headlamps with tinted bezels, which are optional on the RS4 Avant and should be offered on the sedan too.


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730953
“Onto the sides, we can see more of the features that debuted on the RS4 Avant”

Moving onto the sides, we can see more of the features that debuted on the RS4 Avant. Specifically, the sedan has slightly beefier fenders, which should be 1.2 inches wider in production form, RS-style mirror caps finished in black, and larger wheels. New-design 19-inch, forged aluminum wheels should be standard, with 20-inch rollers available on the options list. The sportier side skirts and the lowered ride height also contribute to the sedan’s slightly more menacing profile.


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730952
“It's around back where the sedan will be different compared to the already familiar RS4 Avant”

It’s around back where the sedan will be different compared to the already familiar RS4 Avant. But aside from the three-box design with an actual decklid, look for similar performance features. A big spoiler should highlight the trunk lid, while the bumper should include a sporty diffuser with large, oval exhaust pipes. The “RS4” badge on the tailgate will round off the rear fascia.

Audi also introduced a new paint option for the wagon. It’s called Nogaro Blue, it features a pearl effect, and its a throw-back to the first-generation Avant from 1999. We think that this Audi Exclusive option will also be offered on the sedan, so it’s why our rendering is finished in the same hue.

Interior


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730959
“As seen in the Avant, the front seats are Audi's latest RS Sport units with aggressive side bolstering for proper support”

The interior of the RS4 sedan should be identical to that of the Avant model from the dashboard toward the second-row seat. As usual, almost everything but the seat, which can ordered in various colors, will be finished in black. That’s because Audi seems to think that black “underscores the sporty character” of an RS can better than any other color, but I’m not a big fan to be honest. Audi should at least offer an option to to have the dashboard, door panels, and center console in a more livery color. Not necessarily a flashy shade of blue or red, but at least brown or even gray.

Speaking of features that you can have in a different colors, there’s light-colored leather for the seats and door armrests, and grey carbon trim for the dashboard and center console. As seen in the Avant, the front seats are Audi’s latest RS Sport units with aggressive side bolstering for proper support during spirited driving. The optional honeycomb pattern introduced on the Avant should be offered on the sedan as well.


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730962
“Expect the sedan to benefit from the same options as the station wagon”

The flat-bottomed, RS-style steering wheel will also be wrapped in leather and complemented by white stitching and the usual “RS” badge. The latter will also adorn the shift gate and the illuminated door sills that should come standard with the car. There should also be an RS-specific display in the instrument cluster that indicates g-forces, tire pressure, and torque on top of the usual information you get in the more mundane A4 sedan.

Expect the sedan to benefit from the same options as the station wagon, including the styling packages that add carbon-fiber with aluminum or black accents. The Audi Exclusive program will handle any other special request for customers willing to invest a bit more in their RS4.

Of course, all of the above will come with a significantly smaller trunk due to the sedan body styles, but less luggage room will mean better dynamics and performance.

Drivetrain


2018 Audi RS4 Avant - image 730943
“The twin-turbocharged unit generates 450 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque”

If there’s one big change to talk about, it’s the engine. The RS4 Avant ditched the previous 4.2-liter V-8 for a newer, 2.9-liter V-6 and this is the same mill you will find under the hood of the RS4 sedan. The twin-turbocharged unit generates 450 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, which is the same as the V-8 in terms of horsepower, but with an extra 126 pound-feet of torque.

The added torque and the fact that the new RS4 Avant is 176 pounds lighter that it’s predecessor, give the wagon a 0-to-62 mph sprint of only 4.1 seconds. I guess it’s safe to say that the sedan will be a tad quicker and hit the benchmark in four seconds flat or maybe even 3.9 clicks, which is more or less on par with competitors like the BMW M3, Mercedes-AMG C63, and the Cadillac ATS-V. Top speed should remain locked at the usual 155 mph, but the optional RS Dynamic package will lift the limit to 174 mph.

“Just like in the wagon, the engine should mate to a Quattro AWD system and an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission”

Just like in the wagon, the engine should mate to a Quattro all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, both with significant upgrades compared to the outgoing model. Optionally, Audi will offer a rear sport differential. The options list will also include an RS Sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control, ceramic brakes, and RS dynamic steering.

Average fuel consumption is rated at 8.8 liters per 100 km and it should remains about the same in the sedan. This converts to 26.7 U.S. mpg, but the official EPA ratings should be different. Either way, expect the sedan to boast an efficiency gain of around 17 percent over the outgoing RS4 Avant model.

Prices

When it hits dealerships, the RS4 will become the most expensive version of the A4 sedan. A lot more expensive than the base model actually, just like the RS4 Avant comes with a €46,100 premium compared to the entry-level A4 Avant. That’s €79,800 in Germany. Given the 136.8 percent premium and the base A4’s €31,850 sticker, it’s safe to assume that the RS4 sedan should start from around €75,400. Should it come to the U.S., expect it to cost somewhere between $65,000 and $70,000 before options.

Competition

BMW M3

2015 BMW M3 - image 554287

Arguably the most celebrated compact performance sedan, the BMW M3 is the car to beat in this niche. Although it’s already four years old as of 2017, the M3 is far from dated, unless you’re really picky about the company’s current interiors, which aren’t quite as fresh as Audi’s or Mercedes’. The German sedan’s exterior is downright sporty and it’s enhanced by a drivetrain that delivers solid performance on both the road on the track. The turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline-six unit is rated at 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet, figures that aren’t as spectacular as the RS4’s. However, you shouldn’t let that fool you, because the M3 is quite fast from a standing start. While models equipped with the manual transmission hit 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, sedan fitted with teh dual-clutch automatic need on 3.9 ticks to hit the benchmark. And of course, unlike the RS4, the M3 can be had with a stick and three pedals, although this isn’t possible in the United States. Top speed is capped at the usual 155 mph. German pricing for the M3 starts at €77,500, but the sedan is also available in the U.S. from $65,500.

Mercedes-AMG C63

2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 - image 569752

Launched for the 2015 model year, the AMG C63 bring a balanced mix of aggressiveness and elegance to the table. While it looks like a shrunken S-Class, borrowing some of the big sedan’s elegance, the AMG-specific parts add a significant dose of sportiness front and rear. The AMG C63 also looks a bit more organic by design, which makes a slightly more exotic proposition than the M3. The Merc shines on the inside too, thanks to its S-Class-inspired cabin with the wide, shiny center console and the multi-layered dashboard. All of this, of course, on top of the premium materials and acres of leather on the seats and door panels. Thing are equally interesting under the hood, where the German sedan hides, unlike it’s competitors, a V-8 engine. The twin-turbo, 4.0-liter mill is available in two flavors, starting with the base model that cranks out a solid 476 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of twist. Get the C63 S and output jumps to 503 horses and 516 pound-feet of torque, more than any other competitor in this market. The sprint to 60 mph takes four seconds with the former and 3.9 clicks with the latter. Pricing begins from $66,100 and $73,700 in the U.S., respectively. In Germany, prices come in at €76,398 and €84,668, respectively.

Cadillac ATS-V

2016 Cadillac ATS-V Sedan - image 579664

Not only newer than the M3 and AMG C63, having been launched for the 2016 model year, the ATS-V is also the only American competitor for Germany’s finest compact sedan. The ATS itself is a new nameplate and Cadillac smallest vehicle yet, and was designed specifically to compete with the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4. The ATS-V obviously goes against the M3, AMG C63, and RS4, and it has everything it takes to give them a run for their money, except brand prestige of course. The American sedan is also a breath of fresh air design wise, using loads of angular lines and some features inspired by the larger CTS model. The interior is a nice place to spend time in, being just as comfortable and well-equipped as the competition. Of course, the CTS-V comes with the mandatory sport seats, carbon-fiber trim, and the latest technology. Motivation is provided by a twin-turbo, 3.6-liter V-6 that cranks out 464 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. This enables the sedan to hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 185 mph. The latter is a best-in-class figure. The ATS-V Sedan is priced from $60,695, making it the most affordable vehicle in this comparison.

Conclusion


2018 Audi RS4 Sedan - image 635834

The fact that the RS4 Sedan may make a comeback is incredible news on its own. Not only Audi needs a proper competitor for the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63, but the RS4 Sedan is very important vehicle that’s missing from both the A4 and the RS lineups. And judging by all the information we know about the new RS4 Avant, the sedan should be at least as good as the competition. The rumor that it may return to the United States makes everything that much better.

  • Leave it
    • No more V-8
    • Will be priced higher than ATS-V and M3
    • Not yet confirmed for the U.S. market

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS4 And RS5 Carbon Editions

In a day and age where “special edition” models can mean just about anything under the sun, Audi has found a nifty trick to kill two birds with one stone by offering special edition models for the Audi RS4 Avant and the Audi RS5 Coupe. Officially, both models are have been designated as Carbon Editions, a nod to the smattering of carbon bits they received that help make them lighter and a bit more fun to drive on the open road.

The lightweight blueprint is a tried-and-tested one, and many automakers have taken that approach to squeeze out every ounce of improved performance they can out of their cars without having to pump more power out of the engines. Audi’s approach with the RS4 and RS5 Carbon Editions is similar by the sheer number of carbon fiber reinforced polymer add-ons both models received. The goal of replacing the standard parts with CFRP counterparts is to make both cars lighter, which is exactly what Audi accomplished. The RS4, for example, is now 80 kilos (176 pounds) lighter than its standard counterpart whereas the RS5 slashes 60 kilos (132 pounds) from its original weight. Does the weight loss spell massive improvements in performance? Not quite. But don’t think that these are “standard” RS4s and RS5s either. If anything, these two new special editions should be lighter on their feet, and we know what that equates to in the end.

Continue after the jump to read more about the Audi RS4 Avant and RS5 Coupe Carbon Editions.

What makes the Audi RS4 and RS5 Carbon Editions special?


2018 Audi RS4 And RS5 Carbon Editions - image 734768

It’s not a sexy billing when you describe a special edition’s calling card as “lighter than the original.” There’s just nothing fancy about it. There’s no new aesthetic look, and certainly no extra horsepower to tout. But, not everything about cars is defined by looks and power, and that’s where the Audi RS4 and RS5 Carbon Editions come into the picture.

“Both received a menu of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer details”

Both models still look largely like their standard counterparts. But they also received a menu of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer details. Both models, for example, share new front spoilers, sill extensions, diffuser inserts, and door mirror casings. The two special edition models also benefit from receiving matte aluminum finishes for their respective radiator grilles. Each one also gets a privacy glass, window surrounds, and RS Matrix LED headlamps. Being the coupe of the two, the RS5 Carbon Edition also gets an exposed roof and a rear spoiler. The two special edition models also get the exclusive treat of having a set of one-piece milled 20-inch alloy wheels. This wheel set is not only new and exclusive to the Carbon Edition models, but they also provide weight savings of up to 8 kilos (18 pounds) compared to the standard wheels.

Move inside both special edition models, and similar upgrades are also in the offing. From interior inlays featuring the same CFRP material to fine Nappa leather sports seats in black with contrast red stitching, the RS4 and RS5 Carbon Editions have both been dressed up to legitimately look the part of special edition models.

“It must be expected though that neither the RS4 nor the RS5 feature any power and performance enhancements”

It must be expected though that neither the RS4 nor the RS5 feature any power and performance enhancements. Both the models are still powered by the same 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine that pumps out 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Identical output aside, the RS4 is capable of sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in 4.1 seconds while the RS5 is 0.2 seconds quicker at 3.9 ticks. Top speed also remains at 155 mph for both models, though if customers avail of the option, Audi can lift the limiter up to unleash a 174-mph top speed for both models.


2018 Audi RS4 And RS5 Carbon Editions - image 734773

The two Carbon Edition models are available in the UK, each with a price that’s understandably higher than their standard counterparts. The RS4 Avant Carbon Edition, for example, costs £71,625, or about $95,700 based on current exchange rates. That price point is higher by £10,000 ($13,360) over the standard RS4 Avant. Likewise, the RS5 Coupe Carbon Edition will sell for £75,400, or just over $100,000. Do the math, and that’s a premium of around £12,500 ($16,700) over the regular RS5 Coupe.

It’s unclear how many RS4 Avant and RS Coupe Carbon Editions Audi plans to sell, though we can at least be certain that none of them will find their way into the US market. That could still change depending on where the wind is blowing in Ingolstadt, but if history is an indication of the company’s allocation of these models, don’t expect any good news in that regard.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Steps Up To Formula E With E-Tron FE04

The high-tech slab of open-wheel speed machine you see before you is the Audi E-Tron FE04, the Four Ring brand’s very first all electric race car. The FE04 just made its big debut in Neuburg, Germany, and will be used in Audi’s re-doubled efforts in the all-electric Formula E race series. That makes Audi the first German brand to enter the Formula E fray with a full factory-backed effort. Audi says the FE04 will be used as a test bed for new and upcoming technology that will eventually trickle down to its production vehicles, raising hopes that battery motivation alone will be enough to whet the appetites of future Audi performance enthusiasts.

“Following quattro, TFSI, TDI, hybrid drive and many other innovations, our single-seater race car is a portent of our product offensive in the field of electric mobility that we are ringing in with the Audi e-tron in 2018,” says Peter Mertens, Member of the Board of Management, Technical Development at Audi AG. The brand says it’s planning on offering as many as 20 new battery-assisted models, including both hybrids and all-electric models, by the year 2025. While the FE04 will use a spec chassis, per regulations, the FE04 is still an opportunity for Audi to develop it’s know-how with a new electric motor, transmission, and some suspension bits, as well as the software needed to run it all. Look for the FE04 to make its competition debut in Hong Kong this coming December, with pre-season testing taking place in Spain.

Any Other Technical Bits?


Audi Steps Up To Formula E With E-Tron FE04 - image 734604

Audi didn’t mention too much in terms of specifications and details, but we do know it’s developing a brand-new powertrain and drivetrain to take on the competition. The transmission will be a single-gear unit, while the housing for the powertrain will be all carbon fiber.

“The FE04 is Audi’s first full-fledged factory effort, and thus, it represents a renewal and deepening of that previously mentioned relationship.”

Audi is partnering with the German-based Schaeffler Group when it comes to the technology development front. Although Audi and Schaeffler have enjoyed a working relationship over the course of past Formula E seasons, the FE04 is Audi’s first full-fledged factory effort, and thus, it represents a renewal and deepening of that previously mentioned relationship.

Why Formula E?


Audi Steps Up To Formula E With E-Tron FE04 - image 734610

The all-electric series is pretty much the most natural place for Audi to go right now. Following the disastrous Dieselgate scandal and Audi’s subsequent withdrawal from Le Mans, the “cleaner” Formula E series makes the most sense. Throw in the fact Germany is mulling an outright ban on the internal combustion engine, and battery-powered racers are just about the only option for competition-driven tech development.

“The FE04 is Audi’s first open-wheel single-seater”

Motorsports fans will be quick to remember Audi as the team to beat at Le Mans, with racers like the R18 absolutely dominating year after year. And while it’s a shame to see the brand pull out over a scandal, it’s an interesting development to throw all that go-faster know-how at a completely new sport. After all, the FE04 is Audi’s first open-wheel single-seater, and although Audi’s hybrid tech offers a little bit of guidance, there’s still quite a bit of catching up to do.

Who Will Drive And Who Will Lead?


Audi Steps Up To Formula E With E-Tron FE04 - image 734611

Luckily, Audi is tapping some pretty big names to help along the way. Taking the wheel of the FE04 will be Lucas di Grassi, winner of the championship title this year and pilot of the number 1 vehicle. His teammate will be Daniel Abt, who will race the number 66 car. Both will use black, green, and white livery, with Abt’s 66 car getting additional red marks to help fans figure out who’s who. This will be the fourth season for both drivers. The team principle will be Allan McNish, former Formula 1 star, long-time Audi factory driver, and three-time Le Mans winner.

With a roster like that, Audi certainly has decent odds for success. Whether it’ll pan out with a win remains to be seen.
