Audi – 31/31 –

It looks like Audi will be revealing the Audi TT Club Sport Quattro Concep at the Wörthersee tuner show in Austria. The car is a concept study based on the Audi TT Roadster and uses the Porsche 356 Speedster as inspiration for its design. The concept has no top and no rear view mirrors, instead relying on a small windshield and side mirrors that have the turn indicators embedded within. Also new is the front end, now with a huge grille.

Under the hood lies a modified version of the 2.0 TFSI engine found in the S3, now developing 300hp with the help of a larger turbo. Audi’s S-tronic dual-clutch transmission handles shifting duties, while the brakes have been upgraded to carbon ceramic units. The new wheels measure 20in diameter and are made of light alloy to help keep weight down. (more…)

It seems like the crossover market looks very attractive to car companies, because we’ve seen lots of concepts lately. Presented at the Shanghai Auto Show, the Audi Cross Coupe Quattro is a very interesting concept, with it’s sporty and elegant look. The four-seater car sports 20 inch wheels, a fabric folding roof and a transversely positioned 4-cylinder 2.0-litre TDI engine under the hood, engine which produces 204 bhp.

Also, for the first time, Audi presents a single component lighting system that employs LED technology for both headlights and cornering lights. Almost sure this concept will be the start point for the upcoming Audi Q5 which we expect to see in the autumn. (more…)

Surfing around the web, we came across this concept car, Audi Locus by Ugur Sahin. Looking like TT and R8′s son from the future, this concept car impresses with its curved design, creating a continuous flow from front to the back of the car. The Audi Locus looks really nice, too bad we’ll probably never gonna see it on the streets. Click more for more pics. (more…)

These tuner guys are maniacs. Some of us still haven’t seen some of the cars on the street or in a showroom and tuned up version are launched. However, the latest example, the recently launched Audi R8 is special. Why is that? Well, this new version, modified by Abt Sportsline has all chances to become a super car. Again, you might ask why? Because the Abt R8 will have a distinctive body kit, parts of which are fashioned from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, aggressive bumpers, new hood, widened air ducts behind the doors, a prominent fixed spoiler at the rear, and towering 20-inch wheels in Abt’s signature five-spoke design.

Enough? You might say yes…we did. But nooo, Abt said the standard 4.2-liter V8 engine 420 hp engine is not good enough, they supercharged it and they claim it will deliver 530 hp, take the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and to a top speed of 317 km/h. That’s something. (more…)

Je Design came up with an interesting modified version of the new Audi TT. The modifications include a complete optical package with improved brakes, a 4-pipe stainless steel sports exhaust and 20″ wheels. The engine will also be modified, the improved one producing 244 HP, with a top speed of 247 km/h (240 km/h at the series model). The car will accelerate from 0 to 100 in 6 seconds, which is pretty good. What’s very interesting is that it seems that Je Design is also preparing a 3.2-liter V6 that will produce 350 HP.

The kit will also be available for the Audi TT Roadster, but we have no idea of the prices for these modifications. (more…)
