    Audi's A4 just received some minor tweaks for 2019 but a more substantial update is on the way for the car's mid-cycle refresh, as evidenced by the recent sighting of prototypes. Now a new prototype has been spotted, and this one is for the high-performance RS 4, which unfortunately Audi only offers in Avant wagon guise. That means it isn't bound for the United States, as Audi isn't too keen on wagons here, though the situation may change in the future. Even without the updated RS 4 Avant headed here, the prototype hints at changes that should feature on the related RS 5 range that we do...

MUST WATCH: Ferrari 599 GTO Crashed By Valet Is A Write-Off: Video After throttling away from Turn Five, you head through a supremely fast section comprised of Six, Seven, and Eight. This leads you into the final corner, which is Turn Nine. Anyone who has turned a wheel at Willow knows that Turn Nine is that particular blend of terrifying and exciting that some live for and others hate. One Audi RS 4 owner discovered the...

  • 2013 Audi RS4 Avant

    Sure, the Cadillac CTS-V is great. We love it, in fact. But sometimes you might need to fly a little under the radar, rather than targeting it with heat-seeking missiles. If that's the case, the 2013 Audi RS4 Avant may be just what you're looking for--and the newest version has now been fully revealed ahead of its world debut in just a few weeks at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Powered by the same airpump as the 2013 RS5, namely a naturally-aspirated 4.2-liter V-8 good for 450 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, it's capable of 4.7-second runs to 62 mph. That's quick, but not exactly...

Fine, I will be nicer this time and give better hints. This week we are staying in Germany, but are...

  • 2011 Audi RS5

    The Audi RS4 is no longer, but in its place comes the Audi RS5, and though it gives up the utility of rear doors, it gains the beauty of Audi's A5 Coupe profile--a trade we're willing to make. In this video, we get the first taste of the 2011 Audi RS5 in action, from its riotous face to its raucous exhaust. If you haven't been keeping up with the car, it's Audi's hottest version of the A5-platform coupe, powered by a 4.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 450 horsepower at a wailing 8,250 rpm. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox handles shifts, and quattro all-wheel drive makes the RS5 a supercoupe for...

    Video: Audi RS4 takes on the R8

    Both the RS4 and R8 have a thumping 420hp and AWD chassis but one’s a fully fledged mid-engined sports car and the other is a family sedan on steroids, so as you’d expect both perform very differently. Only about 0.2 seconds separates the two cars in the sprint to 60mph but as the...
