The German car maker is adding R8-specific content to its Audi Library iPad app. The app features a digital brochure with animation and videos highlighting the R8's many impressive features. One video focuses on the 2014 R8's S tronic seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, focusing on the S tronic's extremely fast shift speeds.

    Race Of Champions Game Screeches Onto iPhone, iPad, Android

    As naming norms for sports events go, Race Of Champions is fairly self-explanatory.

    2012 Hyundai Equus Loses iPad Manual, Goes Back To Paper

    We're so used to seeing carmakers taking leaps forward in in-car technology and mobile innovations that it comes as a shock when progress takes a step back.

  • Casey Putsch's turbine-powered Batmobile

    For gearheads, Batman is clearly the best superhero. It's nothing to do with the cape, nor having the appearance and skills of a nocturnal flying creature, oh no - it's because his favourite method of transportation has always been a cool car. From a modified Lincoln Futura concept car in the cheesy TV series through to the tank-like vehicle in the Dark Knight, Bruce Wayne's alter ego knows how to rock up in style. One Batman fan wanted to do the same, but to him a wolf in sheep's clothing powered by a regular internal combustion engine would never do. That's why Casey Putsch equipped his...

  • Copart's Sell My Car app

    Online car sales sites have transformed the way we buy and sell cars.

Still, for some the act of writing a huge, War And Peace-style essay and taking hundreds of photos just to get rid of a car that might take weeks to sell is an almighty hassle, so auction company Copart's new iPhone App may be just what you need.
