Cannot wait til Le Mans!
R18 e-tron quattro cockpit!
2 great videos, posted by a member of the Audi community. EXCELLENT!
I especially love the “plot” in “Dreamer” where the quattro is remembering the glory days…
THIS is why I love Audi—–because (A) they are insane, and (B) their attention to detail. This is a 503hp (!!!!) concept version of their A1 named Clubsport quattro. The engine? Probably the best production engine on the market right now, the 2.5L 5 Cylinder turbo from the TT-RS. Production? NOT likely! That being said, i’m pretty sure we are going to see a rock solid S1 (or maybe with a different name, as crossover with the original ‘S1″ may not work out). RS1? I am not so sure. But the final result is me feeling VERY dissappointed that we will never get the A1 in this country. 503hp…..holy wow.
Sketches of what kind of gearknob to put in! the details….the details…
LOTS of pictures! (enlarge for higher res)
last week, i visited a classic car dealership with my mate Brad from the Automobiliac Blog. We both scrounged through their classic cars, and both of us were fascinating by 2 cars in particular; 2 Alfa Romeo Montreals, and a Lamborghini Espada (that had a *cough* transplanted Corvette engine). I still haven’t gotten around to making a post about that visit to Gullwing Motors in Astoria, NYC—-but i will this week with some photos.
In the meantime though, i’ve been mentally admiring the uniqueness and beauty of both of those cars; the Montreal and the Espada.
Some nicer Espadas than the one we saw….truly one of the most stunning supercars ever made.
As you can probably tell already, IEDEI is quite fond of the new Audi A1 and really wants it to come to the US market, however recently i’ve found out that there is a VERY slim chance of the car making it over here. Pricing continues to be the issue, and Audi Of America seems skeptical that americans will pay $25k for a little hatchback. In my opinion, people regularly pay $25k for Minis all the time….so bring some over and try it!
what a car, what a sound! mean, gurgling, popping, and roaring.
volume up, please.
