Audi will be unveiling an innovative entertainment system for rear-seat passengers in the A6L at the Shanghai Auto Show (20 â€“ 27 April 2007). Two 10.2-inch monitors are fitted on the backs of the front seats. The DVD player integrated in the centre armrest also includes connections for a games console, iPod and digital camera. Together with the TV tuner, the system transforms the luxury-class saloon into a mobile film theatre. Sound can be relayed via either the on-board speakers or headphones.

Audi has done a great job of staying in the news lately, and the one product that’s gotten the most face time is the brand-new A5. From the minute pictures of Audi’s newest coupe were released to the media dogs, the A5 has been everywhere. We’ve posted several times on the A5 and S5, and about possible convertible and RS models. You’ve all seen the pics, but most of us hasn’t heard the roar of the engine, or the sound of the… turn signal? Continue reading Listening to the A5’s heartbeat and horn
Cross-training sneakers took a little while to catch on, too. They weren’t the standout shoe in any of the segments they straddled, but they aimed to be competent for more than one use. Think of the Audi Cross Coupe concept as a vehicular cross trainter. Strictly as a coupe, meh; it would look sweet were it, say, half a meter lower with 1/3 less body at the beltline. Continue reading Audi Cross Coupe Quattro live shots
Details are few, but Audi has decided to pass on building its Malibu Maxx Roadjet concept. All of the flowery prose about how the Roadjet is “a vehicle that blends the latest evolutionary stage of Audi’s formal idiom with an entirely new space concept” with an “unprecedented synthesis of performance, liveliness, and efficiency” are now considered overstatements by Ingolstadt. Continue reading Flameout! Audi Roadjet ist kapputt.
In the long list of toys that Europe gets to play and the US doesn’t, Audi’s RS4 Avant and RS4 Cabriolet have got to be somewhere near the top. However, Automobile magazine has been told by an Audi product planner that the droptop RS4 could soon become a US citizen. Continue reading Audi RS4 Convertible may be headed to US

Remember when Audi rolled out the baseball leather interior on the original TT convertible? That was nothing. For the real baseball fans, aftermarket trim specialists Katzkin Leather and sports equipment outfitter Rawlings have teamed up to offer a full, authentic baseball trim package for full-sized Chevy trucks. Continue reading America’s Game, America’s Truck: Rawlings baseball trim for Chevy trucks
This weekend the American LeMans Series is making it’s first visit to the Monaco of America, more commonly known as Long Beach, California.

This year they will be joined by the ALMS gang led by the storming Audi R10 diesels. The Audi’s will be trying to repeat their one-two finish from the St. Petersburg street race two weeks ago and continue their undefeated streak. The Audi press release is after the jump. Continue reading Audi R10s take on American Monaco for the first time
We are very depressed after hearing this, in an interview with Dutch auto magazine AutoVisie, Ulrich Hackenberg, Audiâ€™s concept car director, said that Audi will not be building the beautiful TT Shooting Brake since it will only negatively impact the sales of the coupe and would not add many new customers. The car was originally shown at the Tokyo Auto Show in 2005 to hint at the next design of the TT. Continue reading Audi not building the TT Shooting Brake
During an interview with AutoVisie magazine, Ulrick Hackenberg, a high ranking product exec at Audi, said that the TT-based Shooting Brake concept that debuted at the Tokyo Auto Show in 2005 will not make it to production. Continue reading Audi Shooting Brake won’t be produced
Audi will introduce its new A5 coupe the Geneva Motor Show according to the UK’s Autocar. Quoting an unnamed “senior company source,” We’ve been following the progress of the A5 for some time now, and we’re ready to see the finished product, which is likely to bear a more-than-passing resemblance to the automaker’s 2003 Nuvolari concept (shown above).
