The Audi R8 has been a runaway success. Even in these difficult times it’s still selling better than ayone could have expected. And the launch of the Audi R8 V10 recently at the Detroit Motor Show has just upped interest in Audi’s ‘Halo’ car. But where do Audi go from here? Well, we know that […]
The Audi Q5 is a great, sensible sized 4×4. It excels in the same areas as Audi’s recently facelifted Audi Q7, but in a much more manageable-sized package. And its market-place is undoubtedly ‘Yummie-Mummies’ and those seeking a sensible, and well-equipped, 4×4. So why, you may ask, has Audi gone all ‘Pimp My Ride’ on […]
Premium car makers have always had very modest sales in India. Despite some wealth in the past, there was never really the prospect of a big premium car market in India, particularly with the huge import duties on cars. But things are changing.

The last time we saw the Audi RS5 out testing at the Nurburgring, it appeared to be pretty much undisguised. The video we had earlier of the RS5 (which has now been removed by YouTube) showed the RS5 lapping the Nurburgring at a fair lick. But it would appear that the car we saw then […]
In a move that seems designed to protect Porsche and Bentley, it has been revealed that there will be no W12 or V10 version of Audi’s new A8 in 2010.
Despite the late arrival on the scene of the Audi Q7, the 4×4 behemoth from Audi has certainly made its mark. Followed recently by the Q5, it has carved a niche for Audi that is standing up remarkably well in the current climate. But Audi are intent on capitalising on their 4×4 success story, and […]
Three years after the Audi Q7 was first introduced, Audi has given the big SUV a facelift for 2009 (2010MY) with small exterior updates and a new MMI system.
