Now when you think of rally what car comes into your head …. Subaru, Mitsubishi and of course Audi . Audi has not competed in Rally from a factory standpoint for over 20 years and yet this company is what people think of when you mention rally. When I saw this concept Rally Car that resembles an Audi Q5 I was pretty excited. Now regardless of if Audi gets into Dakar or WRC makes really no difference to me I will just be happy to see this company get back in the saddle back doing what they pioneered, rally.
When you sit back and think about what it takes to actually make a car, it is easy to forget the environmental impact the production takes on our planet. We see merely a car, and though we are vastly impressed by that car, perhaps more impressive is the way in which those cars are produced. In Audi’s case, by using very environmentally conscious practices and very minimal water and energy.
This video is the first of a series of snap shots into the way forward-thinking companies are making the most of our resources. And if you are in any way concerned about our environment, it may be just one more reason to choose an Audi.
Portland Oregon, so far away from the heart of Audi in Ingolstadt Germany , the 100th Anniversary of the company is celebrated. It’s not only our technological advancements, but also our passion for racing that ultimately put the Audi Brand on the road to victory. Almost every car Audi introduced into motorsports was successful, and if it was a factory race car before 1934, it was most likely on hand celebrating the 100th anniversary at home in Ingolstadt. What goes hand in hand with motorsport success? The heroes behind the machines and they too were there to experience this amazing day. Not only did they attend, but these men put these legendary masterpieces back where they belong: out of the showroom and onto the road.

The TTS will be a limited production vehicle in regards to units produced per year from Audi. There have been additional touches that have been added to the TTS over the standard TT such as the brushed aluminum mirror caps, dual twin pipe exhaust and standard performance features. All of this gives the TTS a very aggressive look. The additional touches do not only add to the overall appearance of the TTS but also each touch adds to the increased performance.
we have all been waiting for the Audi A1 it leaves nothing to be desired compact, quattro, and sexy…. O.K. it might lack storage space. Here it is in Barcelona during a shoot getting ready for the unveiling at the Geneva Auto-show, I can’t wait!
The family she is marrying into famously doesn’t carry money. So perhaps Kate Middelton was just getting a little practice. Certainly, she’ll have needed an exceptional excuse to escape London’s traffic wardens. For when Prince William’s fiancée made a trip to a London store this week, she didn’t pay the £4 it should have cost to park her Audi A3 in the pay-and-display bay. Hassle-free: Kate Middleton returns to her Audi A3 yesterday after escaping a parking ticket
Hassle-free: Kate Middleton returns to her Audi A3 yesterday after escaping a parking ticket Instead, she left it to a police protection officer watching from another car to send the wardens packing. According to onlookers, Kate pulled into a the pay and display bay, directly below a warning sign, and jumped out of her car to duck into the Peter Jones store in fashionable Chelsea. Fifteen minutes later a traffic warden ambled on by and, noticing Miss Middleton’s failure to pay, began taking down the details of her car. Warned off: A police protection officer has a word with a traffic warden who let Kate off without a fine. But a police protection officer, who was following Kate, quickly hurried over to explain to the traffic warden who the VIP driver was. An onlooker said: ‘I saw a warden arrive and he started to take down the car’s details.
Then an officer arrived, flashed his badge and had a chat. ‘Whatever he said persuaded the warden not to issue a ticket.’ This one hasn’t paid and displayed? A traffic warden homes in on Kate Middleton’s Audi This one hasn’t paid and displayed? A traffic warden homes in on Kate Middleton’s Audi Witnesses report that two separate parking officers approached the car, but both times were shooed away by Kate’s minders. Miss Middleton later returned to her car with a female protection officer in tow, perhaps none the wiser to all the fuss.

The new Audi A6 is expected to arrive this Fall as a 2012 model. The Audi A6 has been the worldwide leader in sales in the midsized executive car segment do to its performance, styling and reliability; with the new A6 coming that trend is not likely to change any time soon. Many of the technologies we see in the new Audi A8 will be in the 2012 Audi A6 – and the dynamic driving characteristics will be greatly improved. Watch this video of the new Audi A6 and give us any feedback you have.
Three of the greatest automotive manufactures on Earth go head to head; Audi , Porsche and Mercedes Benz – add some icy mountain roads into the mix and see what happens… I would not be telling the truth if I said I thought that these three cars were in the same league because they aren’t. I think we all know what my preference should be – but after you watch these two clips you might just change your mind as well…
It was a gorgeous sunny afternoon this Monday in Portland, Oregon. We decided to enjoy the first taste of Spring with a cup of coffee and our dog Guinness, who loves to lounge around in the sun. He generally starts out by watching the various people go by, but before long we can see his eyes start to get heavy and he dozes off in the heat of the sun.
It’s pretty amazing what you can see when you stop for a few minutes. Usually we are in such a rush that we walk by the same things day after day and never really see anything… we were sitting on these!
Guinness, as much as he loves the sun, has a pretty short attention span and was ready to go. He has a pretty distict way of letting us know when he wants something… he will just go and get it. In this case, he just started to head home. Jumped off the ledge soon after this and marched on as though he knew exactly where he was going. He probably does.
In a few short months Pioneer Square will be filled with people all hovered over the numerous chess boards laid in the stones we were sitting by. It is a great sight and really makes me feel like summer has arrived. If you have a chance on a sunny day, grab a coffee and spend a few minutes to really take it all in. It’s well worth it!
Also, if you have a dog or are just looking for a great place to show off some pictures of your four-legged friends, check out PDX Dog . This is a great website, especially for dog-lovers!
A good friend of mine, though we have never met Mike Juergens recently had an awesome experience with Audi . Now Mike and I talk pretty frequently and he said “Audi went above and beyond I just want that to be recognized” So that is why I am publishing this. I admire Mike for taking the time to write this as well I want those who create these amazing experiences be acknowledged. Thank you again mike and thank you to everyone at Audi who goes above and beyond.
“My love affair with Audi started a long time ago. An old neighbor use to drive his Sport Quattro everyday past my house. I grew up in a rural area at the time wasn’t densely populated. Part of the road was even unpaved and he use to have a blast ripping through the unpaved section of the road as fast as he could. I still remember the sound of the car as it passed by. I knew someday I wanted to own a machine like that. Fast forward 2008 and the year I was about to graduate college. I had been working full time 3 years at that point. I was making good money and decided it was finally time to visit the Audi dealer. I had been driving my 1.8T for four years at the point. The first thing I saw was a brand new Red B7 S4. The customer was just picking it up for the first time. I knew since I first heard an S4 start up and that exhaust note I knew I had to have one. At that point I was just getting my financially independent self settled. I had to pass on the S4 and pick up an 2008 A4 2.0T. I knew someday I would be able to find a job that would allow me to afford the monthly payments.
Also, around that time rumors of a newly designed engine, Quattro, system and transmission started to spread across the Audi forms and web. I knew that’s what I wanted. I had found that job two years later and just in time for my lease to expire. I strolled into the Audi dealer in February and I knew exactly what I wanted. I had been emailing back and forth with the specialist for a few days talking options and pricing. We finally had it all nailed down within 5 days and the order was placed for a 2010 Audi S4 S-Tronic Premium Plus w/Silver Alcantara Seats, Navigation, Bang & Olufsen Sound, Sport Differential and Carbon Inlays. The waiting started. I received the news in March that friends and Americans all around me had been receiving. My current position was being eliminated to save the company money. My world just collapsed. Luckily my boss was incredible and let me stay on until I could find a job. I found one within two weeks and it sealed the deal. The S4 would be mine when it was finally delivered. Two days before I was supposed to pickup the S4 that A4 was keyed along with several other cars parked around mine. I was devastated but my incredible dealer came up with a solution that let me take the S4 and they would take car of the A4. This is where Audi customer service really started to stand out for me and I knew I would be a customer for life.
It’s been seven months and about 5,500 miles since I took delivery of the S4. There is so much about the car to love. The acceleration, traction, and braking ability of the car are incredible. The exhaust note under hard acceleration is amazing, especially with the S-Tronic, with a little extra burble with each up-shift. The sport suspension keeps the car well planted and very smooth. It can be a bit harsh driving on these awful Boston streets. But who needs coffee? The S4 is the perfect wake up during my morning drive. Two weeks ago I was stopped at a red light. It was lightly raining and the roads where a bit slick. The average driver and car would be able to handle it without a problem. Unfortunately for me the driver that was moving up behind me was talking on his cellphone. I didn’t know at the time but the tires on his car where almost bald. I looked up in my mirror and saw him approaching and figured it would be a typical thing. I put my eyes back on the set of lights and waited to be on my way. Suddenly I feel jolt and hear screeching tires. He had just hit the back of my car. It took me a second to realize what had just happened. I pull off to the side of the road and he follows me. His car had dove under mine as he had tries to stop and the exhaust took the impact with a few scratches on the bumper.
I drop the car off November 3 at the auto body shop expecting to be back in a few days to pick up the car. I take my insurance provided rental and head home. They call me the next day to say Audi doesn’t have any of the parts in stock and it will be about a week to have them shipped from Europe. They called me back on the eighth to say that the exhaust would be another week from the tenth. They said Audi has been using up the parts on the production cars and there was no extra stock. Like any web2.0 intwined person I update my twitter about the delay. Audi messaged me back within minutes and was ready to help. With their help the parts where at the auto body shop this morning. We are just waiting on a few more brackets but the car will be ready by Friday. The Audi customer relations agent went above and beyond for me and I couldn’t be happier. They reminded me that their help is always a phone call away. This was the second agent that I’ve deal with and it’s always been a pleasure. If there is something that you feel is not right about your car speak to them and they can always figure out a way to help you.”
Today is the official launch day of Audi ‘s much anticipated A1. The new Audi goes on sale today in Germany and its pricing structure has been released. The A1 is priced along-side it’s main rival, the BMW Mini. Check out the pricing details below and see what we are all missing out on in the US!
Have a great weekend!
The long awaited Audi A1 super mini is now launched in Germany and will soon hit the other European markets. Audi has big plans for this little car, by the end of 2010 there will be 50,000 units of A1 out and they expect average production volumes of 100,000 A1 units per year. The starting price for this model is €15,800 (£13,145 in UK) and it goes up to around €23,000 for the top of the range model. That is not cheap, but they’ve priced it like the Mini, its main rival.
“Reports from our international dealers show us that interest in the A1 is exceeding our expectations considerably,” commented Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board of Management for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG. “We will therefore increase our production capacity by 20 percent.”
The Audi A1 will be launched with three appealing engine options: the 1.2 TFSI, the 1.4 TFSI and the 1.6 TDI. Each engine features direct injection, turbocharging and a start-stop system with braking energy recovery. The A1 is the only car in its segment to combine a start-stop system with an automatic transmission.
Today Audi USA has posted “Ever wonder where your Audi was made?” on their Facebook page wall with a link to a really nice interactive map of the Ingolstadt, Neckarsulm and Gyor factories. This European Audi Headquarters tour is a nice new feature on the Audi USA site and we wanted to add some pictures of the cars they have parked at the Ingolstadt Forum – Remember that 95% of these cars we don’t have in the United States! Keep up the awesome work Audi on your Facebook page – we love to check in and see what new things you have posted!
Recently I was lucky enough to find myself in beautiful Sonoma, California at the new Audi Forum located at the Infineon Raceway. While there for Audi Product training, I was introduced to one of the most stunning examples of Audi engineering, the RS4. At first glance the RS4 appeared to be only a more refined version of the A4 with huge fender flares, eloquently placed RS4 badging and enormous brakes all the way around.
As I studied the RS4 in more detail it became very clear this was no ordinary four-door sedan. With its race inspired engine technology taken from the Lemans Champion R8, it produces a gripping 420 horse power to all four wheels. I knew there was only one way to see what this vehicle was made of.
After putting my helmet on, I opened the door and sat inside. Situating myself into the proper seating position, I felt the interior wrap around me. With the Recaro leather seats at my back and switchblade Audi key in my hand I was definitely ready.
I placed my foot on the aluminum clutch pedal and felt the resistance, knowing this clutch was there to hold up to some serious power. With the key in the ignition I turned my wrist and then it happened, the beautiful sound of eight cylinders dancing to the rhythmic deep tone of the dual exhaust underneath my seat. The smile on my face was ear to ear and I was off down the first stretch of the Infinion Race Track. Not knowing what to expect, I took the first swooping uphill left turn with caution. This car was taking a corner at 55 miles an hour without any body roll or tire noise and I knew at that moment the RS4 would be the one in control.
Racing into the second corner at great pace, I hit the brakes and did they ever work! This corner was considerably steeper but the RS4 offered no hesitation. With no down shifting the vehicle was almost stopped before coming into the turn from speeds of over 65 miles per hour in what felt like no distance at all. By this time I was into the fifth right hand corner, only now was I getting a true feeling for what a monster the RS4 was and why Audi had put such detail into things like the ceramic coated engine manifold, carbon fiber interior trim, aluminum hood, fenders and the trunk bonnet. The RS4 was meant to be driven.
I pushed through this very steep right hand corner with the Quattro drive train harnessing the brute power from the engine. I knew I was in good hands and felt in complete control knowing I could do this in the dry, wet or even a snow covered track (with appropriate winter tires mounted, of course). Continuing on with great confidence my speeds increased and my skill behind the wheel of the RS4 did as well. As our first dance around the beautiful course came to an end I was not fatigued at all and neither was the RS4, as a matter of fact it was just getting warmed up.
know now, after proper introduction the first time I had approached the RS4 I was in great disillusion of what power it truly possessed. To come to grips with the RS4’s true potential, time has to be spent behind the wheel and a relationship has to built with the machine.
As for me, there will be the many endless laps spent and a great bond built with the RS4 throughout the rolling hills of Infineon Raceway and beyond.
I took these photographs to capture what will be the last of a brand new B7 RS4. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Oregon Audi.
You can’t really appreciate the 2011 Audi A8 until you look at the Audi A8 History in depth. The things that separate the Audi A8 have remained the corner stone of what makes this vehicle so unique, space frame technology, direct injection, quattro, second to none safety and of course Audi renowned fit and finish. The 2011 Audi A8 will be on showroom floors by this time next year but until then hear is a glimpse at what the select few saw at A8 unveiling in Florida. As always thank you for visiting and if you happen to see the new A8 on the streets of Europe we would love to see some pictures.
2011 was an awesome year for us at I Am Audi, and we couldn’t have done it without you. We are having a blast doing this, seriously we have the best fans in the World! From the I Am Audi family to yours, we want to wish you all the best in 2012 – this is going to be a great year!
If you are lucky enough to have snow during this time of year, this may be a familiar picture for you – but if you live in the West Coast, its likely you have to travel to a mountain for skiing or snowboarding or some sort of Winter activity to catch this kind of shot. We just want to say how happy we are for the very cold but very sunny weather we have had recently – and look forward to some snow in the very near future!! If you have an Audi, you are ready for this type of weather and if you don’t – you may just want to take a picture of someone who does and send it to us!! Either way – have a great day!
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. If you want to read more on the Audi Spectacle go to The Cool Hunter – A pretty awesome site!
Recently we had the opportunity to hear the story of a 2012 Audi A6 reaching top speed on the German Autobahnen , here it is! Well here I am, in the land of sausage and sauerkraut, I’m rolling the new 2012 Audi A6 TDI and being American the first thing I want to know is “how fast can this thing go?”. Here’s my pick of the speedo at about 230 closing in on 260 where I finally felt it just wouldn’t go any faster. I’m going to say that (just for the record), you’ll want both hands on the wheel going over 230 KMPH! Hey someone throw me another quarter (or euro in this case), I want another run at it!! Thanks Audi for supporting these launches and making what we do so much fun!!!
To the best of our knowledge Audi Wilsonville, the local Portland Audi dealer is the first Audi store in the World to have the newest addition to the Audi Collection on the showroom floor. Audi Wilsonville is showcasing the DUO a wooden bike built by Renovo cycles right in the city of Portland until April 21st 2011. Whether (because you made me change it!) your an Audi enthusiast, a bike enthusiast or both the Audi DUO is well worth checking out!
Drawing its inspiration from the original 1980 Audi Ur-Quattro and using some underpinnings from the current RS5, the Quattro concept features a shortened wheelbase, lower roofline and a sub-3,000 pound curb weight. The original Ur-Quattro weighed in under 3,000 pounds and featured a turbocharged five-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed manual. Keeping in line with that spirit, the Quattro concept ditches the V8 and dual-clutch transmission from the RS5 in favor of a turbocharged inline five-cylinder engine and six-speed manual gearbox.
Power output for the Quattro concept is rated at 408 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. All that energy is put to the ground through Audi’s famous quattro torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, which in this case is setup with a 40:60 rear-biased torque split. The weight savings mixed with the power output create a vehicle with a power-weight ratio on par with that of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI.

The Audi Urban Future Award aims to establish a dialogue on the synergy of mobility, architecture and urban development by means of a tangible view into the future. The competition will take place every two years and for each award cycle, six internationally renowned architectural firms will be invited to develop their visions for the future of a designated theme.
Chairman of the Board of Management AUDI AG Rupert Stadler said, “The Audi brand stands for change and technical innovations. The courage to rethink and challenge the established is a decisive prerequisite for this continual advancement and the core of our corporate culture. We initiated the Audi Urban Future Award in order to identify and advance along paths leading towards a sustainable and responsible future.”
We love this picture. There aren’t many Audi pics we don’t like, but we sincerely love this one. And not just because we feel some sort of strange attachment to it, but because it’s what we seem to focus so much of our time on, and because not many people recognize that when you are so passionate about something, so many other things have to fall to the wayside… or become blurry, such as the case may be. We appreciate this picture much like we appreciate all the time and energy so many online enthusiasts put into loving a brand that almost always dismisses that effort and time. We can agree that with so much great information, outstanding pictures and unwavering love there is for Audi, it would be hard to recognize everyone – but are we not in the age of instant recognition?! And isn’t that a great deal of what this brand stands for with it’s vast sea of online presence?! We are ranting slightly today because our view is never skewed and with all the years we have spent recognizing the brand we so wholly devote ourselves to, it doesn’t seem like too much to ask for a small piece of recognition for a job continually well done. Perhaps with Scott Keogh now at the helm of the group that will all change, we certainly hope so. In the meantime, not much will change on our end – we will still continue to slather our love for Audi all over the world wide web, in hopes that one day the underdog will ultimately come out on top or at the very least warrant a call back. Enjoy your day everyone – and keep your eyes on the prize.
As a side note, we would like to congratulate Scott Keogh on his new position as President of Audi of America and look forward to all he will continue to bring to the table in his new role. We believe Audi has an outstanding future with this man behind the wheel.

Well Hello Monday! We’d like to say we’re happy to see you, but that would be a lie, and we don’t much fancy liars. For a lucky few, today is an extension of your weekend, and if that is the case we are happy for you in a very quiet way, since it is not the case for us! We would very much like to jump into this waiting Audi S8 and speed off into the winds and twists of neighboring roads, and just make one very long extension to our weekend, perhaps a few weeks. Given the speed of this beauty, we think we could make it pretty much anywhere. Hope you enjoy your day today and that it’s sunny where you are.

Monday September 22nd we set out to Seattle for the Regional Semi Finals for the Audi Certified Pre- owned walk around competition. It was a beautiful morning for the 3 hour drive ahead of us from Portland and Sunset Imports had provided the perfect car for the journey.
The sport package equipped Audi A4 Avant was sure footed at highway speeds and felt very connected to the road as we made our way into the heart of Seattle.
After arriving downtown we took some time at pikes street market for a nice walk to stretch our legs and take in some of the sites…
We then enjoyed a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks as I began my mental preparation for the Audi Certified Pre-owned Competition.
As the day came to a close we enjoyed a wonderful meal at our favorite Italian restuarant, Mitchellis. Always delicous food and great service, we find ourselves here for dinner everytime we come to Seattle.
Enjoying the last few minutes of daylight at the Pier…
The C.P.O. Semi Finals Walk Around consisted of 3 contestants, each contestant representing the Pre-owned vehicle to a potential client with 3 judges looking on.
The setting was very professional and each of us was very well versed in the Audi brand with a true passion for our product.
I was third to present the vehicle and with butterfly’s in my stomach I began, “Welcome to Sunset Audi”. Before I knew it 15 minutes had passed and I was concluding the demonstration with a hand shake. Though I would not be continuing onto the Las Vegas finals , I left with confidence and knew our certified warranty process was second to none. It was truley an honor to be a part of this exceptional training experience.
Audi’s certainly have a way of making heads turn – and this one is no exception! This fantastic looking B7 Avant looks great from every angle and it is definitely getting the attention it deserves. Looks as though it has made an appearance at some sort of car show but is now on it’s way out. We’d love to catch on of these in our driveway! Anyone else?? Have a great day!

2010 is the 30th anniversary of Audi’s quattro four-wheel-drive and, by extension, the Audi quattro (the car) itself. In recognition of this, Audi announced today that it will be taking a selection of its classic vehicles to an “unusually large” quantity of motorsport events in an effort to promote the marque’s heritage.
This is a nice gesture, and it’s an acknowledgment that Audi owes its modern fortunes to the virtues of all-wheel drive. And while automotive anniversaries seem to come around once every fifteen minutes, we figured a look at the beginning of Ingolstadt’s modern history was a nice way to close out the week. To read the full article make sure to visit the source, Jalopnik. On a side not for Jalopnik, “quattro” is not capitalized unless at the start of a sentence, but i didn’t know that until about a year ago and I have been with the company almost 9 years.
