PostHeaderIcon Audi R8 V10 RWS

It should come as no surprise that while in search for a little differentiation for its R8 lineup, Audi decided to develop a special edition model that ditched one of its most important claims to fame: the quattro all-wheel-drive system. And so there it was at the Frankfurt Motor Show for all the world to see. The limited edition Audi R8 officially goes by the name R8 V10 RWS, and according to Audi Sport CEO Stephan Winkelmann, it’s a model that Audi developed specifically for purists with an “appreciation for essential driving enjoyment.”

The special edition R8 V10 is limited to just 999 units and each one of them will ditch the automaker’s famous quattro AWD system in favor of rear-wheel drive. That’s the car’s claim to fame, above all else, and it’s a claim that no other variant of the current-generation Audi R8 has. Beyond the RWD offering, the R8 V10 also features a good amount of exterior and interior changes, as well as significant modifications to its chassis and suspension to accommodate the rear-wheel drive set-up. If it’s hard to imagine what an RWD Audi R8 is all about, think of it as a lighter version of the standard R8 that’s been tuned specifically to put more control of the car in the driver’s hands. Think drifting in an AWD R8 is cool? Well, imagine what you can do with an R8 that sends all of its power in the rear wheels. This is what the Audi R8 V10 RWS is offering, among other things. Better be quick though because only 999 units will be made. Miss out on one and you’re once again staring at the aftermarket tuning scene to get your rear-wheel drive R8 fix.

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS4 Avant

Introduced in 1999, the Audi RS4 placed itself at the top of Audi’s compact car lineup. With a sportier, more aerodynamic exterior, exclusive features on the inside, and a more powerful engine, the RS4 quickly became a solid competitor for the BMW M3. However, unlike BMW, Audi also built a wagon version a created a brand-new niche for performance grocery getters. The RS4 Avant become such an important car in the Audi lineup, that the third-generation RS4 didn’t even get a sedan version. Come 2017 and a brand-new generation RS4 arrived, also introduced with an Avant variant only.

Essentially a beefed-up version of the latest A4 wagon, which already sports Audi’s new design language with more angular features, the RS4 Avant gained a brand-new engine that smaller, but more potent than the outgoing unit. The new performance wagon is also lighter than its predecessor, which had quite a few issues when compared to the awesome Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate. All told, Audi finally has a proper competitor for the souped-up Merc and we will find out what it brings to the table in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon The Elaine Concept Puts Audi’s Autonomous Ambitions On Display

As the race to full autonomy continues to heat up, Audi has been making moves. Between a variety of futuristic self-driving concepts and real-life demonstrations, the Four Ring brand has been busy in the push for robo car tech. Audi’s latest bid in this space is the Elaine concept vehicle, which recently debuted at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show promising a host of interesting features. As you might expect, the Elaine looks beyond the standard list of autonomous features present in the current crop of production luxury vehicles and imagines what’s possible in the future. As such, the Elaine promises not only uninterrupted self-driving capabilities, but also fully autonomous parking, AI-assisted navigation and comfort settings, self-directed car washing, and even driver health recommendations. What’s more, Audi says all these features could very well find their way onto its production vehicles in the years to come.

Inevitably, there will be many of you out there who feel a bit of anxiety over the prospect of a self-driving Audi. Fear not, because this thing still comes with a steering wheel and pedals, and the autonomous features will only kick in when you want them to – that is, during boring stuff like commuting and traffic jams. The rest of it looks like a helpful way to enjoy your ride, and Audi even contends that “drivers should be more relaxed when they get out of the car than when they got in.” Intrigued? Read on for the details.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Audi R8 V10 RWS (Rear-Wheel-Drive)

That’s right. The R8, that old beacon of stability and common sense in the world of supercars has gone and become a senseless drifter! Actually, no. What it’s done is ditch the four-wheel-drive for a limited series of 999 cars called the Audi R8 V10 RWS.

So Audi thinks only around a thousand people would want a rear-drive R8. But if this car’s fancier, prettier, sexier sister, the Lamborghini Huracan is any indication, a loose back-end is what a lot of drivers prefer to the security of AWD. 2018 Audi R8 V10 RWS is said to be made for purists with inspiration from the R8 LMS racing car. The V10 engine in this makes 540 horsepower and about the same amount in torque, which is enough to take it from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 320 km/h. The RWS also comes as a Spyder which is only marginally slower.

The key here is, of course, weight. With only two driven wheels the Audi R8 V10 RWS isa full 50 kilograms lighter than its quattro counterpart due to lack of components like propshaft, multi-plate clutch and center differential. And yes, Audi has engineered dynamic and sport modes into the car’s traction control so you can drift it even if your fists are made of ham. The car comes with black-finished, 19-inch, cast aluminum wheels in a five-spoke V-design, with 245/35 tires up front and 295/35 at the rear. The latter will probably need changing every month or so due to excessive fun.



Pricing for the R8 V10 RWS start at 140,000 euros for the Coupe and 153,000 euros for the Spyder. Among the main visual highlights you find matte black grille and aero parts and optional red film running over the front bonnet, roof and rear end.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Audi RS4 Avant – Specs, Details, Pricing

This year’s Frankfurt Motor Show saw the return of an icon. Every petrolhead above 20 knows and admires a generation or two of the Audi RS4 Avant, and there is a new one for 2018 and it seems as great as ever. Here’s a station wagon with a huge boot and 450 horsepower. Now THAT is a proper family car!

The new 2018 Audi RS4 Avant is powered by a 2.9 TFSI engine with 331 kW (450 hp) and 600 Nm of torque. Naturally, the car comes with quattro four-wheel-drive which here is hooked up to an eight-speed tiptronic with optimized gear changing. Performance-wise, the handsome wagon sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (155.3 mph). With the optional RS dynamic package, the top speed increases to 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

Styling-wise, the new Audi RS4 Avant gets the usual RS goodies, only they are more aggressive than ever. The front view is dominated by a RS honeycomb structure. The optional Matrix LED headlights display tinted bezels. And RS-specific diffuser insert, the oval tailpipes of the RS exhaust system and the RS roof edge spoiler make for a swell rear end look. You also get 19-inch forged aluminum wheels as standard while 20-inch wheels are available as an option, and Nogaro blue optional paint work.



The Audi RS4 Avant can be ordered from the fall onward, before arriving at dealers in Germany and other European countries from the start of 2018.  Most of the good stuff inside the cabin are optional, but you should go for the RS seats with honeycomb design, RS flat bottom wheel, virtual cockpit in RS guise which features RS-specific displays that indicate the g-forces, tire pressures and torque. The base price will be EUR 79,800.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Makes a Move to Please Purists with the Audi R8 V-10 RWS: RWD Performance at its Finest

If you’re a fan of the Audi R8, then you know that unless you do some serious modification, you’re stuck with that Quattro AWD system. Not that it’s a bad system or anything, as Audi’s is actually one of the best, but a sports car is just so much more fun to drive when all its power is channeled to the two wheels in the rear. And, Audi knows this, which is why it’s putting out a limited run of the R8 called the R8 V10 RWS. It will be produced in just 999 examples and will be hand built at Audi’s Bollinger Hofe factory. Stephan Winkelmann, the CEO of Audi Sport GmbH, said, “The R8 V10 RWS is made for purists. A limited-edition special model for customers with an appreciation for essential driving enjoyment, the R8 V10 RWS is an absolutely exclusive offer. With its mid-mounted V10 engine and rear-wheel drive, it successfully brings the driving concept of our R8 LMS racing car to the streets.”

Along with the distribution of power to the rear wheels, it also gets a few other extras that include the front grille and vents in the front and rear being finishing in matt black. The coupe gets gloss black side blades while the lower-body blade is now body colored. A red film is available for the hood, roof, and rear end, just like on the R8 LMS GT 4 while the seats inside come wrapped in leather and Alcantara. Bucket seats are available but must be optioned at the time of ordering. More importantly, however, is what Audi did with the chassis to take full advantage of the car’s RWD nature. Basically, without AWD, the car is lighter thanks to the lack of a center differential and the propshaft. As such, the Coupe form has dropped 110.2 pounds while the Spyder sees a drop of 88.2 pounds. The chassis was modified and tuned specifically to make it easier to perform controlled drifts – that’s right: drifts. The load distribution of the Coupe comes in at 40.6 percent up front and 59.4 percent in the back, while the Spyder gets 40.4 and 59.6 – both offering just enough to kick that rear end out on demand. The car is backed by Audi’s dynamic handling system, which will use the ESC system and electromechanical power steering to help keep things under control when you get to the limit of your drift. You’ll be able to order your own soon, so keep reading to learn a little more.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Looks To Our Autonomous EV Future With Aicon Concept

Auto show season is ramping up, with the Frankfurt Motor Show kicking things off with its bi-annual look at the latest and greatest in the world of passenger cars. Per tradition, the big makes are bringing out the concepts to wow crowds and offer a glimpse at possible features for upcoming production models. Obviously, all-electric powertrains and self-driving capability are hot topics these days, and Audi is hitting both with its latest Aicon design study. Offering high-end “door-to-door” transportation, Audi frames the Aicon as “… an all-rounder well prepared for its primary task: to offer a maximum of comfort, communications technology and freedom for its occupants during a long journey.” That means lots of space inside, with no inputs required from the any of the humans on board. Just sit down, sit back, and relax as the Aicon whisks you off to your destination of choice.

The four-door looks the part, and its possible we’ll see some of its styling elements carried over into future production models. The Aicon is also big, rocking exterior dimensions that include a length of nearly 18 feet, a width of nearly 7 feet wide, and a height of nearly 5 feet, plus a 11.4-foot wheelbase. That makes the Aicon nearly 10 inches longer than the current A8, while the 26-inch wheels enhance the sense of bigness as well. But there’s a whole lot more to this thing than just its size, so read on for the details.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Sport Is Dreaming Of Its Own Hypercar

The landscape of the hypercar segment today is as fertile as it’s ever been, and it’s fixing to grow even more now that Audi Sport GmbH has given indication that it might want to join in on the fun at some point in the future. Just don’t expect that “future” to arrive quickly because at this point, the main concern of Audi’s performance division is to roll out new models to fortify its status as a true performance sub-brand.

There is a glimmer of hope that we’ll eventually see a Audi hypercar. According to Automotive News no less than Audi Sport CEO Stephan Winkelmann is warm to the idea, explaining that a hypercar is something that the brand not only “deserves,” but just as important is that there’s a “demand outside, and the customers are looking into it.” Winkelman’s claims are backed up by the fact that despite carrying price tags exceeding $1 million, hypercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1 have all sold out, some even in record time. It’s this kind of demand that has spurred Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG to make their own hypercars, which everyone expects will also sell out at a snap of a finer. The fertility of the hypercar market is something that Audi Sport wants to sow its seeds on, but not at the cost of ignoring its other performance models. That, above all else, is the brand’s priority at this point, starting with filling out its roster of performance crossovers and electric cars. Only after it’s done that will Audi Sport really take the thought of a hypercar seriously. Here’s to hoping that it finishes its “priorities” quickly then, right?

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: The New BMW M5 Isn’t Worth the Premium; Audi’s Naming Strategy is Dumb

It’s Friday again, and I’m having a bad day. And I’ll probably have a bad weekend too because I just found out that FCA will shut down the Conner assembly plant in a few days. Why is this a big deal? Because the Dodge Viper will die along with it. Yeah, it’s no big surprise. The Viper had it coming, and we knew it would happen since 2015, but the thought of America’s greatest modern muscle car being killed off is depressing. And please don’t tell me about the Chevrolet Corvette and Dodge Challenger Demon, this is a sad day for American sports car enthusiasts regardless of what other performance vehicles you can get.

And, you know what bothers me more? The fact that FCA does nothing about it. Yeah, Chrysler claims the Viper has to die due to slow sales, but we all know that’s not the reason. It all has to do with new safety regulations, which require that all production models have side airbag curtains. And, you can’t fit them in the current Viper. It needs a new platform and a new design. So why isn’t FCA making a successor? It’s too expensive obviously, and it would rather go bankrupt with a bunch of crappy cars rather than a performance coupe. So many decades of experience and FCA still doesn’t know that an iconic car requires a lot of work. But enough about the Viper, it’s been a hectic week.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s New Model Naming Structure Is Now More Confusing

Sometimes the urge to change something for the simple sake of just doing something different doesn’t get the intended result. Audi seems to have fallen into that trap with its new model naming structure. And unfortunately, its vehicle nomenclature is now more confusing than ever.

While traditional model series names won’t be affected by this, the company’s goal in this name overhaul is to do away with using engine size as part of the name and instead using the car’s power output in kilowatts to differentiate itself from other variants of the same model. Take the Audi A3 1.6 TDI for example. Instead of keeping that name, it’s now going to be referred to as the Audi A3 30 TDI because, well, I don’t know. Same thing with the Audi A8 3.0 TDI, which now takes the name A8 50 TDI. Again, how exactly did Audi come up with this? The short answer, apparently, is designating a “number” to classify power ranges in kilowatts. For example, cars that will wear the “30” name produce between 81 kW to 96 kW (108 horsepower to 128 horsepower). These numbers are then staged in increments of five so the next number is 35, which will be used on models with outputs between 110 kW and 120 kW (145 horsepower and 159 horsepower). The numbering system goes on until it reaches “70” for models with more than 400 kW (529 horsepower) on tap. Making things even more confusing is that these new number designations will appear alongside the name of the model and the engine technology that a specific model will be using, hence the name Audi A8 50 TDI. Makes me wonder if Audi thought this one through.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Audi Q2 All-Wheel-Drive Pricing and Specs

audi q2 awd-1

If you gloss over the fact that there is an inherent paradox with the Audi Q2 All-Wheel-Drive – those who want a small crossover don’t need AWD, and those who need AWD don’t want a small crossover – you can sort of make sense of this car. After all, if you are having the looks of a SUV on your hatchback you might as well get some of its capabilities. 

And capable 2018 Audi Q2 All-Wheel-Drive (£31,760 to £36,750) sure is. What you got here is a plucky little thing that can deal with a variety of situations and will rarely let you down. The car comes with a couple of good engines too, 150PS 2.0 TDI quattro and 190PS 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic. The latter sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 141 mph. Trim wise you get  S line and Edition #1 specification, and as for fuel economy the former does 44.8mpg combined and 144g/km and the latter 44.1mpg combined and 146g/km.

The quattro system on Audi Q2 All-Wheel-Drive is a pretty sophisticated one. Ensuring optimal traction and handling under any road conditions, the quattro system’s electrohydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch distributes torque continuously between the axles. Its seven-speed S tronic incorporates a freewheeling mode when the standard Audi drive select handling system is set to “efficiency” mode, and with the start-stop function, the engine already shuts off when speed drops to 4.3mph.

audi q2 awd-2

As for the specs, standard kit on the S-Line include LED headlights, an LED interior lighting pack, S line interior and exterior styling cues, 18-inch alloy wheels, C-pillar blades in matt Titanium grey and front sports seats, plus Audi Smartphone Interface, SD card-based MMI Navigation and Audi connect infotainment service package, light and rain sensors and Audi drive select. The unique Edition #1 gets 19-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels and Quantum grey paint, which is used exclusively here, a black styling pack and Manhattan grey contrast bumpers, wheel arch trims, side skirts and bumper inserts, plus sports seats in Granite grey Fine Nappa leather with Amaretto brown contrast stripes and stitching, a multi-coloured LED interior lighting pack.

PostHeaderIcon Audi S6

The current Audi A6 is five years old as of 2017, and recent spy shots indicate that a replacement is due to be launched sometime in 2018. The new midsize sedan seems heavily based on the recently unveiled A8, which is no surprise considering Audi’s current “same sausage, different lengths” design strategy. Alongside the A6, our paparazzi also spotted what appears to be a more performance oriented version of the sedan, the S6, a sign that Audi is quite busy trying to introduce a full lineup as soon as possible. The S6 will sport the same styling cues, but as usual, it will feature a more aggressive exterior and a more potent drivetrain.

The next-generation A6 is crucial for Audi’s future in this niche. BMW and Mercedes-Benz have already launched their brand-new 5 Series and E-Class, and needless to say, the current A6 is severely outdated. The new sedan should fix that with a fresh design and updated technology, but it should also bring enhanced performance and fuel economy to the table thanks to a lighter platform, upgraded materials, and revised or brand-new engines. The new A6 should debut in the first half of 2018, but the S6 shouldn’t arrive far behind. Until more information becomes available, let’s have a closer look at the spy shots.

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS9 Coupe

While it currently competes with BMW and Mercedes-Benz for supremacy on the premium market, Audi was nowhere near as fancy as a brand some three decades ago. But the Ingolstadt-based firm evolved quite dramatically in the 1990s and 2000s, and it’s now selling a handful of highly appreciated premium vehicles, including the A4, A6, A8, and Q7. However, while Audi joined several new niches in recent years, it still doesn’t have a competitor for the relatively new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. But this will change soon, as Audi is already working on the A9, a two-door version of the new A8 and its largest, most luxurious coupe yet. Alongisde the A9, Audi is also rumored to have an RS9 model in the works. The latter will compete against the Mercedes-AMG S63 and the recently confirmed BMW M8.

There’s no official word as to when the A9 will arrive, but it will be heavily based on the Prologue Concept that Audi launched back in 2014. The show car has already inspired the design of the new A8, but its coupe configuration might make it into production with very few changes. As with all RS-badged models, the RS9 will be a beefed-up version of the A9, with revised aerodynamics, bespoke features inside, and a more powerful engine under the hood. The RS9 will enable Audi to compete in the still fresh performance, luxury coupe market that will soon include both Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Ingolstadt’s most important rivals. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Audi RS3 – UK Pricing and Specs

2018 audi rs3-1

One of the most beloved high-end hot hatches in the British market will soon hit the showrooms bringing with it a new sedan (saloon) variant. The 2018 Audi RS3 models  are now available to order, the Sportback (hatchback) priced from £44,300 OTR and the Saloon from £45,250 OTR. First deliveries are expected in September. 

Whether you go for the saloon or the good old hatch, the 2018 Audi RS3 is not likely to disappoint you. I mean, how could it, when it’s equipped with an improved 2.5 TFSI motor that generates 400 PS and 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) of torque. The firepower is backed by sophisticated aiming apparatus in form of seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive system which together put down the power so efficiently, the RS3 manages to sprint form 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph (upgrade to 174 mph at extra cost).

The RS treatments means the 2018 Audi RS3 gets the beefy body kit, larger wheels, powerful brakes, and sport exhaust. But as is often the case with Audi, some of the nicest options are costly extras – RS sport exhaust system and RS sport suspension with Audi Magnetic Ride. You do however get standard MMI Navigation Plus which is paired with a touch-sensitive control panel, Audi Virtual Cockpit, and RS steering wheel, but again some of the cool stuff like Nappa are listed as extras.

But if you are spending more, shell out for the available safety gear such as Driver Assistance Pack which includes traffic jam assist, which can briefly take over not only acceleration and braking but also steering in slow-moving traffic at speeds of up to 37mph. There is also front collision prevention, traffic sign detection, and lane changing assist.

PostHeaderIcon Audi E-tron Quattro

Back when Audi debuted the Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, it promised a production version of its all-electric SUV would be ready in 2018. Sure enough; it looks like Audi is about on par with keeping that promise as the production version of the E-Tron Quattro was just spotted in the wild for the first time. Little is known about the E-Tron Quattro at the moment, but based on the concept and what we see here, it will be a sporty, sleek SUV that shouldn’t have a problem standing up to vehicles like the Tesla Model X. I wouldn’t expect to see all of the futuristic tech from the concept inside, but it should get a digital instrument cluster and a large tablet-like display. If Audi keeps the same drivetrain setup from the concept, the production model should boast a 95 kWh battery pack that’s good for 310 miles per charge along with somewhere around 429-496 horsepower and up to 590 pound-feet of torque.

Of course, by the time this thing hits the market as a 2019 model, it’s quite possible that other automakers could be taking part in the all-electric SUV niche too. Think about models like the Mercedes EQ and the BMW i5, which should both be on the market by 2020 or 2021. Be that as it may, the segment is rather bare right now, and it looks like Audi just might beat the flock in enough time to grab itself a nice little piece of the market. Before that happens, though, let’s take a good look at the spy shots we have now and talk a little more about what we can expect.

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS8

Enthusiasts have been clamoring for a high-performance version of the A8 ever since Audi started making RS-badged cars in the 1990s. But they’ve been out of luck until now. Although Audi did introduce the S8 as early as 1996 and made a version for each generation until now, it has yet to launch a proper RS8 model. And that’s a pretty big issue with the potent AMG S63 and S65 up for grabs and a BMW M7 reportedly under way. With a brand-new Audi A8 to talk about, the first-ever RS8 feels closer than ever.

And it should be! Given the current market trends and the way deep-pocketed customers are empying their bank accounts to take high-performance, luxury sedans home, the RS8 is quite the urgent matter. It would be a big mistake to pass on the opportunity, especially with the new A8 having all the cool features and technology on top of a sporty, yet elegant design. The absence of an RS model in the fourth-generation A8 lineup would widen the gap between Audi and its competitors even further, and it’s safe to assume that Ingolstadt is tired of trailing behind Mercedes-Benz and BMW. With the first-ever RS8 almost imminent, we created a rendering of the car to go with our latest speculative review. Check it out below!

Audi R8 Performance Parts

At Audi Summit 2017, an event dominated by the new Audi A8, the German company revealed a couple of nicely upgraded models which didn’t get the attention they deserved. They were the new Audi R8 Performance Parts and its little brother the TT RS Performance Parts. 

As the name suggests, Audi Sprt Performance Parts are a number of extras, usually available through tuners and aftermarket brands, offered to you straight from the factory. They help make the cars lighter, faster and nicer to look at… at least if you are into naked carbon and big spoilers.

In the case of Audi R8 Performance Parts the main highlights of the package include sport brake linings, which are more powerful and less prone to fading than standard brake linings with steel or ceramic carbon discs, two- or three-way coilover suspension, clear carbon aero kit covering front air inlets, the side sills and the diffuser, giving the car not just more attitude but also greater downforce. The R8 now delivers 250 kg (551.2 lb) at 330 km/h (205.1 mph), an increase of over 100 kg (220.5 lb). You also get sport contour steering wheel with multifunction plus and carbon shifters.

The TT models (TT, TT S, and TT RS) share most of the Audi R8 Performance Parts goodies but they also get a sport exhaust system from Akrapovic. The kits launch in late summer 2017.
