The Audi R8 Spider isn’t revealed yet still it appeared in a UK magazine just the other day. A local Audi dealer said he accepted pre-orders for the upcoming sports car from Audi. The Audi R8 Spider looks like quite a nice car or what do you think?

The five-door body Sportback model was first introduced in 2004 for the A3 series, but today Audi finally announced the Audi A5 Sportback. It features the same five-door body concept with a longer and bigger rear unit, but it’s at the same time something very different to the A3 Sportback. The Audi A5 Sportback will start ship in September and most probably we will see a A7 Sportback next year as well. More information and images inside.
I had my Audi A3 repaired a couple of weeks ago and while Audi worked on my A3 I had the opportunity to drive around in a brand new Audi A6 Avant for two weeks. At a first glance I thought that the photos of the new A4 Avant actually was an A6 – they are really similar, and I have to say that really like the new look of the A4! More photos after the jump.
Our favorite German car blog Fourtitude have played around with the powerful 262-hp Audi S3. I would love to have one of these, but I think it is quite strange that Audi haven’t decided to launch a 5 door version of the S3. 3 doors or 5 doors, Fourtitude loved it:
We found ourselves falling in love with the car, and in particular the engine.

The Audi R8 is a beutiful car and the modified R8 from German tuners PPI Automotive Design GmbH – the Audi PPI R8 Razor is an even cooler car. I really dig it’s raw subdued black parts combined with the cars natural glossy silver. Lovely! More photos inside.
You can question if this source is trustworthy or not, and they base their rumour on the fact that the tailpipe looks like the ones from the Audi A4 RS. Whether or not it’s true we will see, but many of us would love to see a 414bhp V8 in a Audi TT RS version.

Fourtittude had the opportunity to drive the Audi Q7 3.6 FSI hybrid the other day. The car is only a prototype so far but will hit the market during next year. The car does a 0-60 mph run in 7.4 seconds (0.8 seconds faster than the 3.6 FSI and 1 second faster than the Q7 3.0 TDI) and all this while giving you 24 miles per gallon.
