      Well, we bet this driver is never getting a job driving a safety car at a Le Mans race ever again. The driver in the RS5 fails to pull off the track at the start of the race causing a massive pile-up at this Le Mans race in France. Check out the video below. ...

      Audi sites are buzzing with this news which has yet to confirmed. It would seem that Audi has approved the Quattro concept for limited production in 2013. An S5 based on the Quattro underpinnings has been passed around for testing and routinely praised. The car might even get some further weight shaved off it by having the wheelbase shortened. Production seems likely at this point and we hope the production model gets a DSG transmission. Oh, and expect the car to wear the R4 moniker. ...

      What the hell Audi? You guys have been so cool lately, now this? Jeff Khulman, head of AUDI USA communications, has confirmed there are no plans to bring the next generation B8 RS4 to the USA which has been spotted testing in avant form here. Unfortunately, it seems this is going to be the B5 RS4 situation all over again. You will give us the TT-RS but no RS4? Audi, you need some consistency to your RS products, this is insulting. ...

      Heffer Performance is wrapping up their R8 V10 twin turbo kit. The car produces 725 whp on pump gas at only 6 psi on the stock internals. This is up over 225 whp from stock. No word yet on the cost of the setup but the but the V8 kit for the stock internals was around $25k last time we checked. This will be a bit more than that. ...

      West Coast Customs decided to tackle this project and convert an R8 into a TRON inspired car which depending on your perspective is either really cool or really revolting. Yes, the car is chrome and fitted with lights that mimic the TRON motorcycle. The build is sure to get a lot of attention for West Coast Customs who is using it on the premier for their new TV show but we just feel like an R8 deserves better than this. ...

      Seems like everyone and their mother is making renderings of the upcoming RS6. Hey, if it looks like this we don't mind. Last week we showed you a rendering that focused on how the rear of the wagon may potentially look and this week we have pictures of what the front may look like. This is a pretty aggressive rendering and we definitely like what the designer did with it. ...

      We have our first direct comparison of the TT-RS vs. the 1M Coupe. Car and Driver picked the 1M as their car of choice over the TT-RS and the Infiniti. Frankly, the Infiniti didn't belong in the comparison being much heavier and slower than the other two. What is shocking is they time the TT-RS at 12.1@113 through the 1/4 mile which is quicker than the R8 V8 and hitting 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Car and Driver may have picked the 1M, but the TT-RS is what impressed us. ...

      This is the Project Kahn A5 30 Sport. This is a new body kit that gets its inspiration from the Audi R8 and we think those design cues should stay on the R8. The blacked out rear with R8 style vents just looks weird. The wheels are not exactly our style either but hey, this stuff must sell. ...

      More and more details about the upcoming RS6 are coming out. What we know is the V10 is gone and a twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 based on the Bentley Continental GT will be replacing it. Rumors on power are currently 580 horsepower to keep pace with the upcoming F10 BMW M5. The main question is if it will have an automatic or a dual clutch. Another issue would be if it will come to the United States this time around. Check out the rendering below. ...

The motor is the same as previously reported with a 4.0 liter turbo V8 shared with the Bentley Continental GT that is putting out 420 horsepower. Official reveal should be soon. ...

      Congratulations to Audi. This is pretty cool, seems there is a Motorsport Engine of the year award. An International panel of over 50 judges selected the Audi turbo diesel V10 as the best Engine in Motorsport. This motor is now retired, seeing its last action at the 2011 Sebring 24 Hours. For those unfamiliar with the motor, it is a 5.5 liter twin turbo V12 diesel producing around 700 horsepower and well deserving of this award. Congrats to Audi! ...

      Audi believed it would win the Sebring 12 hours but things did not exactly go that way. Early in the race, the #1 car suffered two punctures in quick succession. The second car suffered a collision which ended its chances at taking the win (video below). Team racing Boss Dr Wolfgang Ullrich stated, "Today we had the performance to get on the highest spot of the podium. But unfortunately we had problems with both cars we could not really influence. The team afterwards simply tried to make the best of it." ...
