Enveloping its stunning all-digital virtual cockpit and advanced new chassis in a beautiful new body that is unmistakably TT but also distinctly contemporary, the third generation car looks set to incite another quiet revolution in its class. It will even set the agenda in terms of efficiency – despite appropriate performance the new 184PS ultra version will be capable of in excess of 67mpg with CO2 emissions of just 110g/km.

Two specification levels – Sport and S line – will initially be offered in the UK for the all-new TT.

TUNER WHEELS for the Audi R8

Schmidt Audi R8 2014 wallpaper TUNER WHEELS for the Audi R8The Germans most treasured possession is their cars. A unique and outstanding example of a German supercar caught the eye of the automotive photographer Jordi Miranda last month, the unmistakeable Audi R8. Any car enthusiast wouldn’t notice the extensive modification to this sportscar. To ordinary folk the car might catch their eye for its outstanding paint job, but we are sure at second glance the extensive modifications on this car will be noticed.

The Audi R8 wasn’t only lowered into the tarmacs but is also expanded to more than 2 meters in width. The front fenders and the rear valance are individually designed and built in small batch. The aim is an outstanding car design – made to order. Wide body transformations with their spacious wheel arches will be filled with matching wheel- and tire conversions.

MTM S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro: Adds Value at The Wheel and on The Road

MTM Audi S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro 2014 Front Angle MTM S3 2.0 TFSI Quattro: Adds Value at The Wheel and on The RoadThe MTM system has heritage – and spins stories. The heritage is based on MTM boss Roland Mayers’ simple philosophy: cars leaving his performance centre are sporty, super and superior. The stories written about cars after their fitness makeover at MTM tell of victories and records. And an Audi S3 is no exception. Be it a Cabriolet, Saloon or Sportback, the Wettstetten-based manufacturer, right next door to the ingenious Audi brains trust, follows a perfect recipe. It makes sporty Audis and other Volkswagen Group products even sportier and more assured. And what the experienced MTM mechanic needs to achieve this is an M-Cantronic plus 1.5 hours for the modification. The ex-works 300 hp TFSi four-cylinder engine responds powerfully to the new engine management system: 360 hp and 450 Nm of torque make for massive thrust: 4.8 seconds and the sprint from zero to 100 km/h is history, with the electronics kicking in again at 250 km/h to curb further forward momentum. The appropriate gear ratio at any point is selected in the traditional manner on a six-speed manual gearbox. Read the rest of this entry »

Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI – The Blue Wonder

MR Racing Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI 2014 Front Angle Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI   The Blue WonderEven though its more conventional brothers with the “even” type designations, the A4, A6 and A8, are much more popular, the Audi A7, a rather exotic car for road use, is without doubt the most elegant model in the Ingolstadt car builders’ portfolio at the moment. The most noticeable, and visually most dominant, feature of the Bavarian top-class model is its slightly slanted Sportback tail, which gives the A7 a coupé-like silhouette in spite of its four doors, quoting the shapes of its ancestor, the Audi 100 Coupé S, which was built between 1970 and 1976.

The styling experts from MR Racing in Eschweiler, near Aachen, recognised the A7 Sportback as the ideal basis for developing an elegant but extroverted project vehicle. Read the rest of this entry »

K MAN Audi R8 2014 Front Angle K.MAN – Turbo Power Under the Banner of The ScorpionChiptrick is stepping it up: About one year ago after the turbo specialists from Wuppertal presented their performance treatment of the “small” Audi R8 with 4.2 liter V8 driving gear, the aspiring Chiptrick crew is now taking off under the new label K.MAN, with its own brand that is now assuming all variations of the sports car from Ingolstadt with the scorpion identity. It is therefore no coincidence that K.MAN – which is a playful short form of the family name of the brothers René and Jean-Pierre Kassmann – also uses the armored arthropod with the impressive scissors as a “heraldic animal”.
