Audi efficiency drive Audi TDI® models smash fuel economy ratings during cross country efficiency driveThree new Audi TDI clean diesel models far exceeded their federally published fuel economy ratings in completing the “Truth in 48” cross-country efficiency drive that covered more than 2,850 miles between Southern California and New York.

From beginning to end, the drivers could stop no more than four times to fill up with clean diesel fuel provided by Shell Oil Co. They had to reach their destination within 48 hours, traveling at normal highway speeds in the newest Audi TDI models – the 2014 Audi A6 TDI, 2014 Audi A7 TDI and 2014 Audi Q5 TDI.

Audi Quattro Concept – Click above for video after the jump

Audi unleashed its Quattro Concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but the automaker isn’t done sharing with us just yet. We now have a short new video clip of the Quattro, and we can’t stop staring. There are so many questions that will most likely go unanswered. What’s it like to drive? How much would a production version cost? Does Audi accept our stolen totally legit American Express card? You know it’s been at least several minutes since you last ogled the Quattro, so get your fix by watching the this new video. If that’s not enough, we also have a longer cut that ditches the annoying background music. Both are posted after the jump.

Paris 2010: 2011 Audi A1 1.4 TFSI

Despite the success of the Mini Cooper and America’s newfound love of hatchbacks, Audi continues to deny us the all-new A1. There are a variety of reasons for excluding the pint-sized hatch from the U.S. market (marketing, brand image, average transaction price, etc.), but the introduction of the twin-charged A1 here at the Paris Motor Show has us questioning all of them.

Packing a 1.4-liter TFSI (read: both turbo and supercharged) inline four-cylinder engine, the A1 puts out 185 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque, sends it to the front wheels through a seven-speed S tronic gearbox and can sprint to 60 in 6.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 141 mph. Think of it as the luxury alternative to the Ford Fiesta, with a price tag to match: €24,250 or just over $30k at current exchange rates. Get all the details in the press release after the jump.
