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.

2020 Audi RS7 Sportback First Drive Review

2020 Audi RS7 Sportback First Drive Review

If you're driving something special, you want it to look the part, and so when Audi was creating the second-generation 2020 RS7 Sportback it put in the time to differentiate not only on driving dynamics from the regular A7, but also the exterior design. Sure enough, while the new RS7 Sportback still has that svelte sloping roofline, put both cars side by side and the differences stack up. Step outside to find a Tango Red Audi RS7 Sportback waiting for you, and it's enough to give you sweaty palms.

2020 Audi RS7 Sportback puts 600hp V8 in seductive four-door coupe

2020 Audi RS7 Sportback puts 600hp V8 in seductive four-door coupe

The first-generation Audi RS7 Sportback was a marvelous car, but it had some quirks. With only seating for four inside, the promise of a high-speed luxury sedan with coupe-styling felt a little cramped. Now, Audi is changing all this and more with the second-gen 2020 Audi RS7 Sportback. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but I'm a big fan of the new design, and crucially it doesn’t look like a regular A7 Sportback. Indeed, the only shared elements between the base model and the RS7 are the roof, hood, front doors, and tailgate. Everything else is unique.

The Formula E crucible: How Audi brings e-tron race tech to the road

2019 marks Formula E’s fifth year of staging races in major cities around the world, and early skepticism around whether electric cars could capture race-fans' imaginations seem finally to have been dispatched. The chassis, brakes, battery and tires are the same for the 11 teams and 22 cars. It’s a team’s intellectual property - the electric motor, inverter, gearbox, and battery/thermal management software – that separates the winners from the losers.

2020 Audi RS6 Avant US launch confirmed: Here’s the details

2020 Audi RS6 Avant US launch confirmed: Here’s the details

Welcome to America, 2020 Audi RS6 Avant! The unicorn with near-mythical status in the US makes its debut stateside for the first time later in 2020, the German automaker has confirmed, now in its fourth-generation and packing some serious V8 muscle along with a mild-hybrid powertrain. Frankly speaking, it’s still a mystery to me why station wagons lost their allure in the US. It must be everyone’s thirst for big, hulking land yachts or maybe the stigma of being seen in a boring, plebeian family car. I’m here to tell you first-hand that the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is going to be anything but boring.
