This is THE sexiest and most exciting Wagon (Avant in Audi language) on sale right now….and having been forbidden for as long as it existed, could this be the first time that Audi is thinking of importing an RS Avant to US shores? Look at those fenders. Wicked. Fruitfully spotted by our friends at Quattroworld at a recent GTG.
There is now a FB page devoted to getting people to join; to convince Audi of America there is a market for this car. I, for one, am severely interested! I am currently on the order list for a 2014 Audi S3, however if I was told this would be arriving I would have to re-evaluate things! The Facebook petition worked for the TT-RS, did not work for the RS3, but let’s hope it works for this.
Dear AoA: Take the steps we all want you to take. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when the 8P RS3 did not come to the US market, and it would be a shame if the B8 RS4 Avant doesn’t come here either. These are the cars we want and will pay money for!

HA! “you just got beat by a wagon” sticker at the top of the back window!
What an amazing sound…..i’ve still heard nothing that compares. That popping is just pure EVIL.
nice dark tunnel + epic Audi TT-RS + water = EPIC.
ALSO—there is a video showing some of the footage here (what a sound!):
big thanks to Lukas for sending the tip! Apparently this was being filmed for a Dutch TV show called ‘AutoRAI’ (click to enlarge fotos)

as an Audiphile, i have to admit this made me laugh a bit! however i am most definitely interested to see what is being released…as the “duo”. Seems like it will be a bicycle…supposed to debut this weekend at the Audi Collection.
Automakers, of course have a history of making bicycles—–and Audi is no different. Here’s one of their previous bicycles called the ‘Audi Design Cross’….quite nice, although i’m not really a bicycle person—so i have no idea whether it is any good or not.
this commercial defines my NYC winter. superb! ……and the R8 is so f*cking cool.
I had no work today, but when i woke up i looked out the window and saw SNOW! everytime this happens, the voice of an 85 year-old rural farmer comes into my head and says “FIRE UP THE QUATTRO!”—–so i did. driving in circles around my neighbourhood….it was lovely. Grabbed some breakfast….and took the time to take a photo representing my morning.
I took this photo here in Brooklyn of a MKIV R32 parked on the street with a Quattro badge on the window, and Audi rings on the side. I’m not sure what to really think of it. The R32 DOES have a Quattro-like AWD system, and it also utilized the Audi-developed DSG gearbox (thanks for the correction, Bulgogibrothers!)—but it’s not an Audi!!! Debate…

So from what i gather, this was a ‘film’ made by the Audi Coupe S Club Of The Netherlands about a gathering they had back in 1984. The soundtrack is quite mad scientist, and the whole thing makes me laugh every time i see it…but the Coupes look pretty cool, in that weird grey 80s Europe sort of way….
what a car, what a sound! mean, gurgling, popping, and roaring.
volume up, please.
