Audi A7 Piloted Driving Concept Drives Itself to Vegas, Baby! Audi A7 Piloted Driving Concept Completes a 560-Mile Test Self-Drive from Silicon Valley to Las Vegas.

Audi A7 Piloted Driving Concept Completes a 560-Mile Test Self-Drive from Silicon Valley to Las Vegas. Audi A7 Piloted Driving Concept is pretty impressive. If anything, it’s even more impressive than it’s scooty-er sibling, the Audi RS7 Piloted Driving Concept, which lapped the Hockenheim racecourse last October. While the RS7 Piloted Driving Concept ran itself driverlessly around a race track at speed with a nearly...

Audi RS7 Piloted: Driverless Audi at Hockenheim Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line

Driverless Audi RS7 Laps the Track at Speed Using a Picture-Perfect Line We already know the $104,900 (base MSRP) Audi RS7 is the biggest beast among all other beastly super-sedans. With its 4.0-liter, 560 horsepower, 516 pound-feet twin-turbocharged V8 powering all four wheels through a Audi’s bullet-proof Quattro AWD system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the Audi RS7 Sportback will power from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 3.7...

Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept: Quattro Concept, Take 3

The Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept has frickin’ laser-beams on its head(lights).  I’m sure I’m not the first person to channel Dr. Evil when referring to Audi’s third incarnation of a concept car resurrecting the lauded Audi Sport Quattro.  But, seriously, who can resist… the car has the word laser right there in the name. Anyway, last year’s Audi Sport Quattro Concept star feature was a 700...

Audi Q1: The Q Stands for Quite Little

It’s like a countdown for Audi… Q7, Q5, Q3… and now Q1.  Yep, the Audi Q1 will be the next member of Audi’s Q SUV/Crossover family.  According to Audi, the first Q1s will roll off the Ingolstadt assembly line (home of the A3, A4 and A5) in 2016 as part of Audi’s pledge of 11 new models before 2020.   Audi isn’t big on spilling too many beans, so all we know about the forthcoming Q1 is that it...

Audi A5 DTM Champion Edition

The German DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) Touring Car Championship boasts some of the most extreme versions of road cars Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have to offer.  The DTM cars are sort of like German road cars on über-steroids.  And, this year, Audi and driver Mike “Rocky” Rockenfeller won the driver’s title in a car kinda related to an Audi RS5. In honor of this win, Audi is offering the DTM Champion edition...

Audi A3 and S3 Cabriolet: 2 Less Doors and One Less Roof on the Baby Audi [Video]

I really liked the Audi A3 and S3 Sedans when they debuted last March.  They have a good engine line-up.  They’re better looking than the BMW 1 Series.  And, they should have a pretty good rivalry with the Mercedes-Benz CLA.  But now that Audi has unveiled the drop-top version of their little car, the Audi A3 Cabriolet, I’m just sort of “meh.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s a great car. ...

Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept: An Off-Road R8?

The Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept is a badass lookking car.  I rather like it.  I also liked it last March when it was called the ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour.  One cannot deny the similarities between the two.  Both use big V10, both produce about 550 horse and both will run from 0-60 in less than four seconds.  But, like I said: I like the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept all the same. Audi unveiled the Nanuk Quattro Concept during the...

Like the Volvo Concept Coupe from last week, the Audi Sport Quattro Concept draws heavily from a truly iconic car while managing...

Audi Fleet Shuttle Quattro Virtual Car in Ender’s Game [Video] [Update]

Audi has made quite a name for itself putting their cars, real and conceptual, in blockbuster movies. In the Ironman franchise, Tony Stark’s R8 is the second coolest piece of hardware in the movie.  iRobot featured a futuristic Audi RSQ that gave us a pretty good idea of where Audi was headed design-wise.  Their latest big-screen partnership is with the new Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford flick Ender’s Game. This time,...
