The Audi World

May 16

Round and round we go!! Though this pic might makes some dizzy just looking at, it makes us want to find a hilly valley we can race this Red Bull dream machine around and round until we are dizzy ourselves! There is certainly no mistaking this Red Bull ride and we doubt they would have it ay other way. There’s few ways to make an Audi look better so we can’t say that all the logo stuff makes it any more appealing, but it certainly makes us thirsty for more Audi. Enjoy your hump-day… we definitely will! Click here for a larger version.

Audi Diesel TDI Q7 – Captures Russia

Oct 14

The 2010 Audi Q7 has captured the United States and compelled us to want so much more of TDI and Diesel power. Russia has always wanted more Audi in any form and this video will show you why. We have had the opportunity to see demonstrations like this from the Four Ringed Auto manufacturer but now we can. Truly amazing the power that the 2010 Audi Q7 is putting through the bullet proof Audi pioneered drive train; there might be nothing this Brand can’t do. Don’t get me wrong we will most likley never see the 500 Horsepower V12 Q7 Diesel but we can always dream.

Audi R8 With Color Changing Paint

Oct 2

The source of this video, Justin Supercars records a unique looking Audi R8 in Dubai. This Audi R8 comes in a special “Flip Flop” wrap witch changes its color from pink/purple to green, depending on the angle you look at the car. I think this is a pretty cool idea for such an exotic car, and i have never seen something similar on an Audi R8.But hey…that’s Dubai! The video shows different angles of the car,and the car driving away.

At long last it is Friday again friends!

The Best Fuel & Oil For My Vehicle

Apr 9

Every time I stop to fuel my car I ask myself, “is the fuel I am putting in my tank good?” I always wonder if I am doing more bad then good. I decided to do a little research on fuels and oils and my suspicions were put to rest; not all fuels are created equal. I have attached a list of fuels that fall in the Top Tier Fuel Grade and a little information on what makes a fuel ‘Top Tier.’ As I read through the article on fuel grades, I then began to wonder as well about the oil in my engine. If the fuel has such a huge variance in quality, the oil might as well; I was right. To be honest, I was very surprised that even though the oil and fuel I put in my vehicle are the life line, they are hurting my engine, fuel system and even the environment.

Now this was not my first experience with this subject. I did study quite a bit about fuels and fluids in Automotive Technology at Wyotech (Wyoming Technical Institute) but there is so much information for every application. If you have never taken the time to read about fuels, oil and fluid grades then I recommend sitting down and catching up on your studies. The information I have published is only the surface of some great information.

Audi A7 – Portland Oregon Needs You!

Jun 27

Thanks to our friend J.F. Musial at Fast Lane Daily , we have been passed along the first images of an Audi A7 caught testing in the mountains of Colorado. And, with the use of our spy binoculars — just kidding — you can see that it is located somewhere in the Mt. Evans area. As FLD points out, we are all crossing our fingers for a Frankfurt unveiling. But the test car appears to still be camo’d to the fullest. The only new detail we can make out are the larger rims that can be optioned on the 2011 Audi A8.

These are the first photos of the new Audi A7 on U.S. soil. The new four door sedan, set to compete with the Mercedes CLS, is expected to be revealed later this year at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Colorado, having some of the highest paved roads in the world, provides a perfect testing spot for high altitude testing of new vehicles. It’s expected that this mule will proceed onto further hot weather testing in Death Valley later this month. Details on performance or engine options are still limited, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for the first diesel four-door coupe…

Berlin Buick!!?

Dec 14

Well to say this is creative may be an understatement. Tasteful though?? You can be the judge of that. We have to hand it to the creator of these projects and his vision for all things Audi. He is a true lover of the brand and is really willing to put that out there in a way that no one else really would be! The Berlin Buick is a name he commonly uses for his Audi’s and today we thought we’d share that with all of you! Has anyone else heard of this reference before and would care to share some details with us?? In the meantime take a few minutes to appreciate Nate’s pics and his very own brand of Audi love.

Audi Wilsonville Thinks This Is Incredible!

Sep 6

Audi Wilsonville just wants to say that we think this is incredible! The article “Those Young at Heart party-goers rock and roll at Momentum Audi” A car dealer has never been known as a place of celebration, but with forward thinking like that of Momentum Audi , an Audi showroom can be just that.

Momentum Audi is fast earning the title of Party Central in this city that offers more good reasons to lift a glass and kick up your heels than most any other metropolis. The sleek car emporium on Richmond has hosted a half dozen charity kick-off parties and fundraisers in recent months making Momentum Audi GM Jared Lang the host with the most. The string of soirées continued recently when the American Heart Association’s Young at Heart young professionals group held its second annual membership party amid the shiny German autos on the Momentum showroom floor. Maker’s Mark served specialty drinks. Glazer’s poured the wine and Carrabba’s provided Italian party fare for the throng that surpassed the 150 mark. While they sipped and socialized, long and lanky models wearing the latest fall design from Neiman Marcus sashayed through the party space.

The Audi Spectacle – A New Breed of Billboard

Sep 29

I have to give credit to Ryan Schroder “pdxschroder” a friend and fellow Twitter user. Ryan sent me this article and I have to say I was impressed. “Audi, a brand exuding an attitude of self confidence and progressive thinking, and associated with the latest technology and innovative design, is a perfect brand to pioneer this entirely original concept; a new breed of “billboard” created by Access Agency .” This would be an awesome type of advertising in the Portland area because we are ‘The City of Bridges.’ this gives me an entirely new look on the landscape around me and the potential it has.

A Day In The Life… Of Guinness.

Mar 26

So with Spring in the air and the sun shining through for days on end, I thought it was timely for a break from all this Audi talk, and a hello from Guinness, The French. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Guinness, he is our French Bulldog, and he has just recently turned 4. This picture is an example of how Guinness prefers to spend his days – sleeping in the rays of sunshine, streaming through the doors and windows! He will actually move around our house with the sun and will give up his comfy bed for a spot in the heat of the sun. It is very cute and he seems to have mastered this sun-seeking trait! It seems as soon as the sun comes out everyone is so much happier and Guinness is no exception. Enjoy the sunshine and have a great weekend!

Audi R8 Exhaust Sound – So Mean!

Oct 2

The sound of the 4.2L Audi R8 is awesome – so you know me, I just had to record and share it. We all started talking about the V8 vs. the V10 R8 and driving capabilities of both cars in the North West – and of course, what car sounded better. As these discussions always do, it went full circle and we decided that with a Milltek exhaust system the V8 sounds better than the V10 R8. The fact is, it’s all subjective and truly they are both magnificent sounding. So in the spirit of sharing… here you are; the Audi R8 exhaust sound.

Audi Q5 – Initial Impressions

Mar 2

As the Audi Q5 demonstration vehicles start to arrive at the local dealers we have an opportunity to see what Audi has to offer with its first crossover vehicle. Being that the Q5 is Audis first entry into this segment we ask, what differentiates the Audi Q5 from the rest? The first impression you might have is that the Q5 is about 3 years behind the other contenders in the IHG (Import High Group) Crossover Sport Utility segment. Well you are right. We are introducing the Q5 later then the other manufacturers; however we are introducing the right Crossover, at the right time. As people start to downsize from their SUV’s (Sport Utility Vehicle) and become more conscious of their purchases, the Q5 truly shines. With standard equipment such as leather seating, dual power front seats, 6 front airbags and adaptive load sensing roof rails, even with an entry level Q5, you have a first class Audi. We received our Q5 Demo about a week ago so I have had a chance to see it on a regular basis and go through its many features. My impressions of the Q5 from a design point of view from day one was very positive; simply put, I love the look. Even with the vehicle on hand, the lines and shape continue to work for me. My clienteles feedback has been very positive as well; they are proud to be a part of the brand, go to www.fourtitude.com to see an outstanding example of such pride and love of the Audi Brand. When first stepping into the Audi Q5 you will notice how easy it is to get in and out. Also, the seating position is set higher, setting you above other vehicles. The drivers seating position is very comfortable and visibility is clear through out the cabin. While setting the exterior mirrors, cabin temperature, seat position and media to my preferences, I noticed how intuitive all the controls were. Though this was the first time I had the opportunity to drive the Q5 it felt so natural due to the well thought out configuration of instrumentation. After depressing the brake pedal and pressing the push button start to ignite the engine, I was off without hesitation. Acceleration was ample, stopping power more then enough and steering input was surgically precise. Through the corners there was very little body roll and road feed back was pleasant with very little road noise, but an extremely connected feeling to the Q5. I not only had a great time driving the Audi Q5 but also felt very safe and knew that this Crossover was very versatile. Whether I was out for a spirited drive on or off road, or just making my way home after a Portland Trail Blazers game with four passengers, the Q5 was up for the task.

I have only had a few days and although comfortable both in and out of the Audi Q5 I know it has so much more to show me. I will continue to offer up tasks and see what the Q5 is made of over the next few months, and see what tricks it has up its sleeve. When you have the opportunity to drive the Q5, ask it while you put it through its paces what it thinks about “being 3 years behind the rest,” and the Q5 will show you with confidence, it is 3 years ahead of the rest.

If you have any questions about the Audi Q5 “Contact Me Here” and I will do my best to help you. Keep in mind I took these photographs in order to provide the best example of the Audi Q5 and share what I see in the industry each day. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Oregon Audi. Thanks again for visiting www.iamaudi.com

Audi President Johan de Nysschen + Me

Nov 25

This was a very proud time in my life. Meeting the President of Audi America, Johan de Nysschen was a special moment for me for many reasons. When Johan spoke about Audi or the future of the Brand he did it with real conviction and integrity, he spoke in a way that showed he really believed in all of our efforts. When Johan and I spoke he listened and was attentive and at the same time provided feedback on everything going on at a dealer level. However I think what I really like about this picture is that Johan is smiling, to me that is rad. If the president of Audi ever sees this picture I am sure he will say “I don’t remember any of that” that’s alright though because if he see’s this picture it means he was on I Am Audi and that is a huge Win!!! P.S. Johan if you find your way here please leave a comment, my friends will never believe me.

The Energy is Electric – Audi Electric that is.

Sep 10

09/15/09 – What could it be? I know Audi is the pioneer of Diesel and FSI (Fuel Strait Injection) but what does Audi know about the world of Electric? I suppose we will find out, but do we want to? I have owned hybrids and I have driven my fair share of Audis and I know the only way to describe current hybrids is “yawn.” Now I have to go back and say when Audi does something they do it better than anyone else; Quattro, Lighting Technology, FSI, Diesel and so on. My guess is, if Audi is going down the path of electric “Stop + Start” then they will do it like no one else and we will love it. Let me know if you have any ideas or insight on what this “Electricity and Power Run Free and Untamed” is all about. Thanks again everyone.

Helicopter Crashes While Filming Pikes Peak Research Run

Sep 18

While filming an Audi commercial featuring the new “driverless” VW/Audi car named Shelly, an Aerospatiale helicopter crashed near the summit of the famed Pikes Peak Highway. The pilot, Jim Dirker, was severely injured, but is said to be in fair condition. The other three crew members were hurt, but are in stable condition and will be able to leave the hospital later today.

In an official statement the company said: “Audi is saddened by the helicopter incident that took place this morning near the summit of Pikes Peak. Today’s film crew was shooting a test run of the “Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak,” a joint program involving Audi, the Electronic Research Laboratory in Palo Alto, California, and Stanford University. The goal of the project involves ascending Pikes Peak autonomously without a driver behind the wheel to demonstrate the capabilities of advanced driver assistance systems and GPS. The car was not involved in the incident.”

“Further information on the helicopter incident will be released by the National Transportation Safety Board and local law enforcement officials. All research activities on Pikes Peak have been suspended. The research project will continue at a later date.”

Audi R8 V8 vs: Audi R8 V10 (Exclusive Velvet Purple!)

Jun 8

I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such good friends. Last year my wife I went to the Audi Sportscar Experience and we met a great guy who just loved his V8 R8 and was waiting for his new V10 R8. Of course we kept in contact and when he told me he had decided on Velvet Purple, an Audi Exclusive I got excited. Here we are and the Velvet Purple Exclusive R8 V10 has arrived and I have a comparison article between his previous V8 R8 and the new V10… Enjoy!

A comparison of a 2008 R8 V8 (6MT) vs. a 2010 R8 V10 (R-Tronic)

I entered the R8 fold back in February of 2008 when I was fortunate enough to find a Phantom Black manual transmission R8. I had just spent a day at Infineon Raceway at a intro to the Audi Sportscar Experience. It was my very first track experience and was totally bitten by the bug.

From there, I attended several more sessions at Infineon Infineon all driving the V8 version. The V8 was certainly what you would call a “hero car.” The car seemed so well balanced that it made you a better driver. About the only complaint I had (and complaint is a strong word here) is that it felt like it needed a little more power in certain situations – like exiting some corners where you have a longer straight ahead. Part of this problem went away when we were given the chance to drive the cars with the first level of traction contro (ASR) turned off. Suddenly the car could get a little sideways, and the throttle wouldn’t cut back as much when the car thought you were out of control. The electronics would still make sure you don’t get totally in trouble, but it really seemed to open up the car.

Fast forward 2 years and now the V10 version is out. When I first learned this version was coming, I really didn’t think I would be interested. The V8 has more than enough power for an around-town car, and for the occasional track use, still perfectly adequate. And without too many other changes, I was hoping I wouldn’t have to have the new version. No such luck. Back to Infineon we went, as the new V10 fleet had just arrived. Immediately the car sounded quite different. Much more formula-car sound compared to the deeper rumble of the V8. Our day started with an exercise “anatomy of a curve.” Now I had done this exercise a multiple of times in the V8, so I figured I knew what I was doing. The initial acceleration of the V10 was instantly noticeably more than the V8 and upon accelerating out of the apex, I nearly spun the car out as the power is significantly more than what I was used to in the V8. Wow, what a difference. It became very apparent that the V10 is a completely different setup than the V8 – in a very good way. Went home, called the dealer – time to order a new car!

So, the power is a major difference as well as the suspension/electronics. I am convinced that the level of electronic intrusiveness in the V10 is less than in the V8. When driving with the full electronics on in the V10 it seems to give the freedom that the V8 did with the first level turned off. Now this makes the V10 a car you need to give a little more respect to as it can get away from you. Take the electronics off and you need to give it even more respect. In day-day driving, it still retains all the civility that the V8 did. It’s still a comfortable car to drive around town, on a long drive, or on the track.

As far as the transmission goes, there has obviously been much debate on the R-tronic vs. the manual. Many have their own personal preferences and both transmissions are great. I will say that the 2010 V10 R-tronic is MUCH smoother than the early versions of the R-tronics I drove in the V8’s. For me, I am absolutely happy having gone to the R-tronic for my V10. It gives me the option for being lazy when driving in traffic and the quick shifting options for track or spirited driving.

All in all, the V10 is a great enhancement to an already incredible car. Both engine versions are a blast to own and drive.

This year the king of high-speed hot hatchbacks has 360-horsepower Mercedes A45 AMG, which is presented in the spring at the Geneva Motor Show, but after he catches a competitor of Ingolstadt. In the photo spies lenses got a copy of Audi RS 3, passing at the time of the test. According to preliminary data, the power of its 2.5-liter turbo with equal performance mersedesovskogo opponent.

However, for the A45 AMG engine will remain the title of the most powerful four-cylinder unit in the world, since Audi «heart" - a five-cylinder. But these nuances are hardly important when on the road RS 3 will not yield extreme Mercedes, and perhaps even surpass it. Last dials 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds, and after all Audi RS 3 was exactly the same rate in the last generation, when her engine gave out 340 power. Now the extra power might mean and improved dynamics.

In 2016, Audi will launch a new compact crossover. It is a model Audi Q1, which will be built on a common basis with the Volkswagen Polo, reports Auto Bild.

Official pictures of new items not yet available, however, in the opinion of artists editions, Audi Q1 will look like this

New products will reach 3.8 meters in length, but despite the typical off-road look and increased ground clearance, will be all the same psevdokrossover - for example, there will be no all-wheel drive.

But Audi Q1 should take another - the model will be one of the cheapest in the line of the manufacturer from Ingolstadt.The starting price for the novelty will start with a mark of less than 20 000 euros. As for the engine line, it will be adopted from the Audi A1. The base will be the 1.4-liter petrol turbo and 1.4-liter turbo diesel, both 90 hp The engines will be paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

The top version will be the Audi SQ1, which will be powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline engine produces 231 hp But that's not all - the 2018 list of modifications to be added hybrid crossover that will combine a 1.2-liter petrol engine (110 hp) and a 109-horsepower electric motor. Moreover, this car can consume only 1.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers and travel up to 50 miles on electric alone.

By the way, it is - is not the only novelty of the Audi. For the second half of 2013, the Germans can show SUV Audi Q7 new generation .

11:20 PM Administrator , 0 Comments

The new generation Audi Q7 will be presented only in the second half of next year (and it is likely that sales will begin only in 2015), but the Germans have already started testing "ku-seven." How will this model is still hard to say, but some technical details are known about this car now.

Apparently, based on the second generation Q7 will be a new platform called MLB. This will be the second universal "truck", developed by engineers of Volkswagen, but if already known to us under the symbol MQB platform is designed for compact and mid-size models (for example, for Volkswagen Golf or Skoda Octavia), then MLB will serve as the basis for large machines. For example, such as the new Volkswagen Touareg, SUV brand Bentley or Audi Q7.

It is expected that this new platform Q7 second generation current model becomes easier to 350-370 kg, which will not only improve the handling, but also to reduce fuel consumption. As for the engines, the main rate in Europe, of course, will be made ​​on diesel engines. The base will be the 3.0-liter V6 (258 hp). Who is this enough to be offered a diesel engine of 4.2 liters and 385 hp, plus there will be a hybrid model, where the diesel engine of 3.0 liters will work together with the electric motor. And the power of the latter will make 115 hp, which will be enough to drive around the city without the use of internal combustion engines. Not to be forgotten about and Audi petrol engines - they will produce between 310 hp up to 435 hp Plus should appear "charged" model, which will receive about 500-600 "horses". However, accurate information on these versions yet.

12:25 AM Administrator , 1 Comment

The first attempt to issue an executive car under the Audi brand dates back to the year 1979, when it became Audi 200. In 1988, the world saw the Audi V8, and in 1994 was shown and the aluminum A8. With each generation of large Audi got better and better, and as a result they have become serious rivals to call Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series. However, buyers still prefer "behi" and "Mercy" - the latest in the world of selling much better than the A8. And what have we? In Russia, all three models are roughly the same demand - last year it was sold in 1626 S-Class and 1.3 thousand A8 and BMW 7 Series.

True, Mercedes-Benz this year made ​​a very strong move - the Germans have shown a brand new S-Class, which we have, by the way, have tested (all the details in the article "The new S-Class. almost like a dollar" ). What replied Audi?Alas, while not new, "eight" - it will have to wait a few years. In the meantime, spoil the mood sellers Mercedes-Benz (and along with BMW) will be updated A8.

Home "theme" restyling in 2013 - is the emergence of new "chips". For example, the A8 will get very smart lighting system. The headlights will be several groups of LEDs, which operate independently of each other. This allows the flexibility to change the direction of the light beam according to the road conditions, and thanks to the front mounted camera, radar and night vision system, the car will start to literally see all around. This will not dazzle oncoming and passing cars, people on the margins and highlight it, identify wildlife and so on. In addition, the A8 will illuminate road signs and thanks to the navigation system, even in advance to cover the turns! Plus, will the so-called "dynamic", "turn signals" that will not just "blink" and show the direction of rotation by means of a kind of "light path".

Major changes under the hood did not happen. But engines have become a little clearer, they spend a little less, and their capacity increased. If before the petrol unit of 3.0 liters gave 290 hp, and the 4.0-liter 420 hp, it is now necessary to speak about 310 hp and 435 hp respectively. Diesels have a 258 hp or 385 hp (At a volume 3.0 liters and 4.2 liters respectively). In addition, it can be noted that the petrol V8 and V12 on the huge 6.3-liter and 500 hp there was a system off half the cylinders.

1980 ... Audi for the first time shows its new coupe, which was named Quattro. The car with the four rings on the hood made "four"? But it was a little harder - Quattro here indicates the presence of permanent all-wheel drive. Premiere Audi Quattro was a real turning point in the history of the company. It is thanks to her Audi broke into the world of motor sport (and in those days, success in the rally meant a lot), and proved the effectiveness of all wheel drive ..

In the Audi claim that in EV mode coupe will pass on only one electric about 50 km.

And today at the Frankfurt Motor Show the Germans introduced a new version of the Quattro. However, prior to serial car is still far away - in front of us the concept. But after talking with the engineers of Audi becomes clear that this machine may soon go into mass production, and - just need to get a "odobryams" on the board. And it is not excluded that the Audi Sport Quattro (and the new machine has such a name) will be available in the version that is shown in the cabin.

And then it will be a blast. Not only because of appearance. Technical filling this model is striking. It was Audi Sport Quattro is the most powerful Audi in the history (of course, we do not take into account the specially prepared racing car). After all, there is hidden under the hood of a turbocharged 4.0 liter V8 that produces 560 hp (By the way, is the engine of the Bentley). But that's not all - along with a gasoline engine and an electric motor works, and he has another 110 kW (or about 150 hp). As a result, the total power of motors is already 700 hp and maximum torque is at 800 N ∙ m

  • Transmission here, by the way, not DSG, as on all the latest machines Concern Volkswagen. Apparently, the Germans were afraid that she will not be able to digest such enormous power. That is why they decided to use a "normal" "automatic". However, very modern - with 8 steps.
  • Audi Sport Quattro is surprising not only for its technical characteristics, but also the interior - believe me, a lot of the ideas that you see in the interior, may be coming soon on production machines

The choice of buyers will be offered three modes of propulsion: EV, Hybrid and Sport. In the first case supercar generally will not pollute the air, well, and in Sport mode motors will work with maximum efficiency. And then the machine will dial the first "hundred" in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 305 km / h Which is true fuel consumption at active driving in the Audi are not reported. But in the average fuel economy mode is only 2.5 l ... Such indicators have achieved not only by the electric motor - petrol V8 has the function to turn off half the cylinders. It helps in saving and navigation, which paves the default route so that the machine is to spend as little fuel.

But it's a real surprise - usually manufacturers are trying to warn journalists ahead of the models that will be featured at the show. And rightly so - do not annoy people, they can be a family, and the environment or to hell. But Audi decided to surprise and ... and turned to the Italians of Italdesign Giugiaro (or the last call to Audi - now it's hard to figure out). But we see that the output at the output - a car named Nanuk Quattro Concept.

Dynamics of off-road supercar will please any "Schumacher" - 0-100 km \ h in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 305 km / h

Sooner rejoice - even if you have a bulging pocket of Gazprom's shares or to Apple, buy a car today, you still can not. At the moment it's nothing more than a fantasy on the theme of the supercar designers of the future. And off-road supercar. I must say that there have been attempts to create a powerful hybrid coupe and "jeep". We may recall the legendary Lamborghini SUV or the French model of Mega Track V12. But who now remembers about these machines?But the display of off-road Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept - this is a completely different matter. It is an application that something like this might take a few years to sell!

In addition, from a technical point of view there is nothing fantastic. In the motion Nanuk Quattro Concept is already known by the diesel engine of 5.0 liter V10 that produces 544 hp (And torque here at all is beautiful - exactly 1,000 newton meters, and they are already available at 1,500 r / min). Transmission - the seven-speed DSG, which also comes as standard. Plus, it uses adaptive air suspension, which can alter the amount of clearance, but it, too, has already met before. As such "bells and whistles" as ceramic brakes or polnoupravlyaemoe chassis. Yes, the latter is no longer a sensation for cars Concern Volkswagen - the system will start to put on a supercar Porsche 918 Spider. Overall, what if?And all of a sudden this car still goes into production? In this case, it will certainly become a cult from us. We are waiting for.

I wonder how much are these giant tires for wheels with a diameter of as much as 22 inches?

It is said that the average fuel consumption of Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept is only 7.8 liters. Frankly, do not really believe in it ...
