5-Cylinder Fury: Audi TT-RS & Audi Sport quattro

Fourtitude has posted some absolutely STELLAR photos of the absolutely legendary Audi Sport quattro and the new heir to the throne and future classic Audi TT-RS.  Obviously, being the Audiphile that I am—i was overcome with excitement frantically downloading every glorious photo I could. Here are some of my favourites.  Follow the link here to see the whole huge gallery of Audi porn.

It is a great article as well, with a link to the gallery of 100+ photos at the bottom right hand side of the page:

foto of the day. C30 Polestar.

This car is badass…and nobody even knows what it is.  AWD. 400hp. 5 Cylinder turbo.

my sister has a regular C30, which I have to say—is quite an enjoyable to drive with the stock 210hp.  It is also, in my opinion, the best looking hatchback on sale in the US at the moment.    This Volvo C30 Polestar is only a concept, but it pretty much kicks absolute arse!  The big question then is—why does Volvo refuse to build it?

original 1973 diagram of the BMW 2002 Turbo engine…

p0034906b

The BMW 2002 Turbo was the first production car out of europe with a turbocharged engine.  It caused quite a fury in Germany when it was launched, being as it was as quick as many supercars of the early 70s, but with a boxy coupe shape and yet still carried the audacity of a fast car.  The car never made it to the USA….
