Audi AI:ME autonomous EV concept has VR and a surprise inside

CES wouldn't be CES without a glittering autonomous car concept hitting the Las Vegas strip, and for 2020 it's the turn of the Audi AI:ME to ditch the driver. Billed as the "third living space," the self-piloted e-tron electric hatchback is a prototype of not only what the car of the future might look like, but the sort of things we may be doing inside when we're not focused on actively driving.

2020 Audi RS Q8 First Drive Review: An SUV that surprises

2020 Audi RS Q8 First Drive Review: An SUV that surprises

The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the new flagship in the German carmaker’s growing portfolio, and only the second Q-model to receive the RS badge. It's a badge that sets some seriously high standards, too: we've not long driven the magnificent RS7 Sportback and RS6 Avant, and each sets a tall bar for their bigger sibling to meet. If the RS Q8 is to hold its own, it needs to be a super-SUV.

Audi Digital Matrix LED Headlights first look: The e-tron tech the US can’t have

For those of you old enough to remember, the Audi R8 was the first production car to feature LED headlights. Back then, automotive LED lighting technology was in its infancy: the R8 was at the dawn of an age of newer, more modern, and hi-tech looking cars. At the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, Audi shed some light on something even bigger than the new Audi e-tron Sportback, and it all has to do with the car’s digital matrix LED headlights. This, I said to myself, is the future of automotive lighting.

2020 Audi RS6 Avant First Drive Review: A wagon welcome in America

2020 Audi RS6 Avant First Drive Review: A wagon welcome in America

Station wagons aren't meant to be cool these days, but nobody passed Audi Sport the memo. Then again, the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is about as far away from the old family woodie as you can get: the German automaker may insist on branding its wagons "Avant" but that's only the smallest of the differences between the new RS6 Avant and the unfashionable cars of old. Audi fans in North America have long watched their European counterparts enjoying several generations of a model the automaker insisted just wouldn't sell on US shores. Now, though, Audi has relented.

2020 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe and Spyder First Drive Review- A fast goodbye

2020 Audi R8 V10 Performance Coupe and Spyder First Drive Review- A fast goodbye

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Audi R8, particularly the V10 model. Sure, I too mourned the demise of the V8 in the second-generation Type 4S R8, and back when the R8 first launched in 2007, it was unlike anything I’ve seen before. The Audi Rosemeyer Concept from early 2000 and Audi Le Mans Quattro concept both surged into my mind as I watched six-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx drive the R8 for the first time. The R8 was Audi’s first-ever supercar, and boy was it revolutionary in terms of design. Whether Porsche was ready to accept it or not, it was time for the 911 to have some proper competition, and the Audi R8 was the answer.
