Have you ever wondered what it takes to build one of the world’s most sought after sportscars, the Audi R8? Well, perhaps you haven’t and all you really want is to own one – nevertheless, it would still be interesting to see how one is assembled, am I right?
The Drive channel on YouTube’s segment, Inside Quattro, takes you inside the famous Quattro GmbH where the R8 is assembled. This time around, they’re taking a look at the R8 V10 Plus, and what it takes to put one together. Just so you know, too.
The video is actually pretty interesting and will be well worth the watch for both all-round petrol heads as well as Audi fans.

A few weeks ago we reported on the finalists for the World Car of the Year Awards. The awards were to be handed out at a ceremony at the New York Auto Show. And so the votes are in and some car companies are feeling especially proud.
The jury for the wards included motoring journalists from almost all corners of the world including North America, Europe and Asia. They tested all the nominated cars and voted for their favorites – and we must say, we are not too surprised by the results.
Either way, it’s always good to know which cars are standing out above the rest.
The winners are: (more…)
Audi has become quite renowned for sneaky previews of their latest models. Just as they did with the ads for the S1, Audi has done it again by teasing us with sketches of the highly anticipated Q4 concept.
Audi’s Q4 is a concept SUV tat will combine both fuel and electrical motors. The company has labeled the all new Q4 as a ‘plug-in hybrid crossover’.
Luckily for us, the sketches won’t be the nay thing we will be able to see about the car for a long time. The Q4 will make it’s official debut at the Beijing Auto Show next week. So while it’s all good and well to look at the sketches, we only have a week to go to see the official, real-life model. (more…)
The Audi TT has firmly cemented itself as somewhat of an iconic car. The sleek, modern and clever design that got people talking when it was first released back in 1998, is getting a slight update.
The Mk II TT is Audi’s new TT. And just to give us a little taste before it’s official debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March, Audi has released a few sketches – that right, not photos or videos, but sketches – of the updated TT. (more…)
After teasing us with their sneaky teaser clips, Audi has finally revealed the much anticipated, all new, Audi S1.
The reveal is also way ahead of it’s planned debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March – but it seems that Audi fans worldwide (and perhaps Audi themselves) couldn’t wait to see the S1 out in the open.
The S1 is sort of a variation of the Limited Edition Audi Quattro. The company had promised that they would be designing and manufacturing a car that will be the production model of the Quattro – enter the S1. (more…)
Audi is currently driving a very secretive (yet thoroughly exciting) marketing campaign in anticipation of the release of their latest model.
The new model, that no one really knows about, will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in March. However, prior to the launch, Audi has been releasing sneaky teaser video’s that only show a glimpse of the new car.
While many expected it to be the 2015 version of the Audi TT, the second teaser video in this series proves that it’s not. The latest video shows a smaller, hatchback car. (more…)
Can you imagine having the opportunity to drive two, different Audi R8’s? A dream probably. Then add on to that the fact that you can take them both for a spin around the German Grand Prix Circuit, Nurburgring. Well, that’s exactly what Chris Harris did.
The man that probably has one of the most thrilling occupations of all, his back with another video blog on his experience driving both the Audi R8 V10 S-Tronic as as well as the R8 LMS Ultra GT 3.
Also, just for interest sake, the LMS Ultra GT 3 costs $440 000…
