Audi Motorsport Highlights – R8 GT3 Customer Racecar

Mar 14

Audi’s motorsport division first announced plans in August last year to launch a 500hp-plus (373kW) version of the V10-powered R8 for use in the 2009 GT3 racing series. The first of these high-performance race cars has now finally been released, with Audi Sport Italia taking delivery on Tuesday of the car with chassis number 101.
Audi GT3 Customer Race Car
Twelve examples will be delivered during the forthcoming weeks to six customer teams, with the first races scheduled to start next month. The six customer teams plan to race in five European GT3 championships as well as in the 24-hour race at the Nurburgring for which Audi Sport has developed an endurance version of the car.
Audi GT3 Customer Race Car
The new car has been designed for private customer teams and fully conforms to the production-based GT3 regulations, which means they will be allowable in numerous national and international competitions. Prices start at roughly €250,000 but opt for an Audi-backed support team and prices increase to the €500,000 mark.
Audi GT3 Customer Race Car
Because the GT3 regulations prohibit the use of AWD, the Audi R8 GT3 comes with a modified RWD powertrain and a newly developed six-speed sequential sports gearbox. The suspension is almost completely stock, with most of the modifications focusing on weight reduction and improving the car’s aerodynamics package. The kerb weight is an estimated 1,300kg – 300kg less than the production model – and a modified front end and a large rear-wing have been added to generate the required downforce for the race track.
Audi GT3 Customer Race Car
The assembly of the race cars including the body shells is made by quattro GmbH in Heilbronn-Biberach, Germany, in a factory hall specifically for the customer sport program. The Audi factory in Györ, Hungary, delivers the V10 engines.

We can’t help but love this picture! We are suckers for anything industrial looking and the details in this photo are incredible.

Audi R8 V10 – Carbon Fiber Mirrors & More…

Sep 2

After taking delivery of the new 2010 Audi R8 V10 the client was extremely excited and wanted to share his experience and initial driving impressions. From an appearance stand point the Audi R8 V10 has a larger rear lower defusser, larger sideblade for cooling, as well as full L.E.D (Light Emitting Diode) headlights. Now there are many other differences, those are just the most apparent (excluding the new R8 V10 style wheels & V10 engine.) We are lucky enough at Sunset Imports to build relationships with our clients that give them the opportunity to share their experiences and have them heard. No matter how you look at it, the Audi R8 V10 could not disappoint, even if you wanted it to. So enjoy these pictures and watch for this new Audi owners input in the future, as well, thank you so much for visiting and all your comments.

Audi A7 deadly Sins Advertisement Leak!

Dec 20

We can’t say for certain if this Audi A7 advertisement was intended for print or online media but what we do know is that we love it! Judging by the color and placement of the Audi logo we are confident that this Audi A7 ad is a draft or concept of a future piece from Audi. If you look closely you can see all the 7 deadly sins hidden in the background – Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy & Pride – obviously Lust sticks out, pretty awesome! . This Audi “A7 Deadly Sins” ad is a creative concept that could be used in so many different ways. It is obvious to us that with the Audi A7 Billboard advertisement Audi is really trying to push the creative envelope by evoking some emotion with these creative pieces. Bottom lime… we can’t wait to see the final product!!!

Matte Audi R8 GT

May 17

A while back I Am Audi did a poll and asked our readers if they wanted to see more Matte color options from Audi. It has been over a month and nearly 72% of people said YES! and it looks like Audi is starting to pay attention with the R8 GT Exclusive Suzuka Gray metallic carbon matte color now available in the 2012 order guide and cars like this R8 GT in a flat bronze – looks like we are headed in the right direction! Thanks for your input!

Audi Q5 Rally – Back In The Saddle!

Nov 13

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.

Audi Sport Gets Social!

May 30

The Audi Sport Facebook Page has become very popular with over 21,000 likes in less then a week of starting the page. It is safe to say that the demand for social interaction from the automotive industry is in high demand. Now with Audi Sport on Facebook and Twitter we will be able to keep up with them on an almost instantaneous basis.

Inside Line says “Audi Sport arrived late in the race compared to such competitors as Team Chevy, Ford Racing and Mazdaspeed Motorsport, all of which have created popular Facebook pages during or prior to early 2010 and have thousands of followers on Twitter. Audi Sport has lost what could have been a year’s worth of racing enthusiast buzz. In comparison, Ford Racing has 19,114 Twitter followers, while Team Chevy has 200,963 Facebook fans.” This may be true, still we would much rather support the Audi Sport page with 20,000 followers then follow Team Chevy with over 201,000 fans, but maybe that’s just us!

A Taste Of Spring In Portland Oregon

Mar 4

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.

Guinness in 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!
Bricks in Pioneer Square

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.
Guinness In Pioneer Courthouse Square

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!

Bugatti Veyron Top Speed Video // Top Gear

Dec 19

The Bugatti Veyron… this automobile needs no introduction with its 16 cylinder, quad turbo engine producing in excess of 1,000 horsepower; its a monster! Now you may not know this but Bugatti, Porsche, Lamborghini, Audi and others are all under the umbrella of Volkswagen AG. The first time I watched this video I remember thinking how well I thought it was done and showing everyone, and here I am a year later posting it. If anyone has a Google maps image of the “Top Secret!” Volkswagon research and development track I would love to see it, Enjoy the video.

Audi R8 GT Inspired!

Apr 18

Is anyone tired of seeing pictures of Audi R8’s yet??!! We hope the answer to that question is no – especially because this is an R8 GT and is in a pretty unusual color. We love it and what we love even more, is that if you look closely, this is an Audi surrounded by other Audi’s! We wish this was a parking lot we parked in everyday as we could hardly imagine the inspiration we would take from such an event daily! What inspires you?? We’d love to hear about it and we would certainly love to see it, especially if it looks like this. Enjoy your day and be inspired!

Dec 19

Recently I posted about Brittney Snow, Anna Lynne McCord and Ryan Rottman at the Infinion Raceway, home of the Audi Sportscar Experience in Sonoma California. Oakley and Tiger Milk put on a “The Learn To Drive Event” and the lucky few in attendance who got to race around the Infinion Raceway. I will leave it short and share just one last picture of Nick Cannon with the V10 R8.

Audi RS5 Design Language

May 31

Looking at this gorgeous picture we find ourselves loving the color blue even more. There is just something about the blue back drop and shiny hue of the car reflecting the light and of course the grey over tones of the whole image that speaks to us. We know what it says – Audi makes everything look good, but some people just make it look that much better! A special thanks to

Complementing Colors – Audi A5

Feb 2

After the A7 was released with the Sahara Silver Metalic exterior color and light beige interior, I became a fan of this combination. No more then a week later this A5 comes in with a very similar color combination, and it looks great. When seeing the Sahara Silver Metalic A5 next to the Dakar Beige A4 I can not decide what color appeals to me more. All I know is they both look great.

2009 A4 S-Line Avant

Jan 3

Audi has always made the most beautiful Avant, so when combining the S-Line package to this already beautiful vehicle, you have perfection. This new 2009 wagon really stands out with its huge wheels, stunning interior and aggresive stance, this package puts it all together. One of the most common modifications to any vehicle is suspension and wheels, but when looking at the stance of the S-Line A4 it clearly doesn’t need a thing.

Audi Doing What Audi Was Made To Do.

Dec 31

I love to see people using the Audi product for what it was made for, to be driven! I sold this R8 just about a year ago and recently the owner and myself had a chat about how much he loves this R8, he loves the way it performs in slick conditions and how it just sticks to the ground. The Audi R8 is a vehicle that can be driven as a daily driver, and this picture proves that, even at the end of December.

People used to think that the planets revolved around Earth, but we know today that isn’t the case and that the planets orbit the sun. Well I don’t know why this Solar Orange Audi TTS made me think about that, but it did. Typically people are safe and go for silvers, grays, blacks and as of recently while when deciding on color but you would be amazed at the postoperative feedback this bright TTS has had – people love it.

Audi Debuts Q5 Assembly in India

Jul 8

Audi India has began assembling its compact SUV Q5 in India. Audi has been assembling the Audi A4 and A6 luxury saloons in India and the Q5 is the third model that Audi is assembling in India. The Audi Q5 main selling point is its classy styling and sporty stance. The Q5 is a perfect alternative to the executive luxury saloons like the Mercedes Benz E-Class and the BMW 5-Series and even stablemate Audi A6. Frank Dreves, Board Member (Production), Audi India – “The production of the Q5 is part of our long-term growth strategy in India. The Indian market for automobiles will grow very rapidly, and the Q5 is the right automobile at the right time.”

The Audi Q5 is doing extremely well in the luxury car market with relatively no competition. The BMW X3 is completely outdated, the Volvo XC90 is very pale and lacks prestige, Land Rover Discovery and Freelander are relatively unknown and Mercedes Benz doesn’t even have a Q5 rival. Audi sensed the opportunity and has began local production of the Q5 at a very crucial time. With this Audi would be able to cater to the needs of luxury car buyers faster and the costs of the car could come down and hence boosting sales ultimately. The Volvo XC60 which we spied recently at an Indian dealership could pose a minor threat to the Q5 when launched.

The Audi Q5 is also pulling customers from the Mercedes Benz E-Class and the BMW 5-Series. Customers would buy the Audi Q5 over the new E90 BMW 5-Series which has a waiting period of nearly 3 months. The Audi Q5 comes with 2 engine options, a 2.0 TFSI petrol and a 3.0 TDI diesel. All Q5s come with Quattro all wheel drive. Audi is also planning to offer more powerful and efficient engines for the Q5 in future. The company is planning to bring the latest Audi A8 super luxury saloon to India by the end of this year. The Audi A8 would rival the Mercedes Benz S-Class and the BMW 7-Series. Audi is currently offering 7 models in India, the A4, A6, old A8, Q5, Q7, TT Coupe and the R8 supercar.

Sunset Audi was represented at the 1st Annual PSC (Portland Service Center) Cruise-In, Friday, August 14th and I was in attendance to wave the Sunset Imports flag.

Audi A5 Diesel // Sex Sells But So Does Shock.

Jan 6

Growing up my parents taught me that certain subjects really were not appropriate for open conversation, that some subjects are “taboo” not because they are wrong but because they are sensitive. Now with 3 siblings 2 of them being brothers it was not always easy being sensitive to our sister, but we all knew right from wrong. Watching this Audi video reminded me of growing up and my Mom saying “now remember what I taught you” because this subject would be considered some what sensitive and not really a laughing matter. Well Audi I have to give it to you because the only thing that might sell as well as sex is shock.

Audi A1 Exclusive Review!

Jun 21

Our friends over at Club Audisport Iberica have been kind enough to send us these amazing photos of this Audi A1 – in nature – and we couldn’t be more thrilled with them! Not only is the vehicle itself fantastic, but the back drop is really unbelievable. We are unable to get the A1 in the US at this time, so we’ll have to let these exclusive pictures hold us over until we are able to get the car here – or until we can travel to these other beautiful parts of the world and see them for ourselves.
Audi A1 Picture
Be sure to check out Club Audisport Iberica on Facebook – they are doing some great things on the site and share our passion and enthusiasm for the brand in a big way! We hope you enjoy them and the article they wrote below – and if you have any pictures you want to share, please feel free to send them our way; we would love to see them!
Audi A1 Picture
“This Audi A1 is painted in Phantom Black with Ice Silver Metallic roof contrast line and has a set of 17″ x 7.5J ‘5-arm’ design bi-colour alloy wheels. This A1 is fitted with the 1.6 TDI 105 HP engine with a 5 gear manual transmission. It gets an average of 6 liters / 100 km in the city with the start/stop system, and on the highway driving carefully it’s consumption is only 4,5 liters / 100 km.”
Audi A1 Picture
“The Audi dealer Superwagen wanted us to test the car in all situations possible, so we decided to drive 1000 km in two days from ’92 olympic city of Barcelona to Zaragoza and go back. We had a great surprise when we left the highway and drove until Mequinenza (See Map) using secondary roads. In that moment we realized how funny and agile is the A1 with that VERY direct direction and sporty suspension. Despite we were not using the most powerful A1 engine, it was very easy to overtake other cars and leave behind curves and more curves without feeling tired of driving. It makes you forget you’re driving a car designed to the city. Two front seats have nothing to envy to the A3 ones.”

Audi TT RS Arrives in Silence…

Feb 10

As reported by Motor Trend magazine; about five months after Audi confirmed that the TT RS Coupe would be coming to America, the hottest version of the sporty 2+2 finally made its debut at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show . Somewhat curiously, however, it did so without any fanfare, with Audi quietly placing it near an R8 Spyder at its stand with nary a mention of the car’s special nature other than the glass barrier that surrounds it.

Like the European-spec car, the U.S.-spec TT RS will be powered by a 2.5-liter I-5 that makes 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission and Audi’s famous quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi says that the car weighs about 3200 pounds and can sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds. The TT RS goes on sale in the third quarter of this year, with pricing and options to be announced at a later date. Don’t hold your breath for the arrival of the TT RS Roadster, as the arrival of the Coupe on the west side of the Atlantic is almost a miracle itself.

Audi S8 – The Ultimate Touring Sedan

Jul 3

Imagine the perfect road trip … What do you see? Where are you going? And most importantly, what are you driving? I was sitting in my office today looking through the glass and picturing the perfect road trip trying to decide where I would go and what car I would drive. First, I knew the trip would be long and I would have to be prepared for all kinds of driving conditions: hot weather, windy mountain roads and of course, high speeds. Second I would need a co-pilot. My wife and our dog Guinness would have to be part of this great trip, and of course, for the tough part, what vehicle would be up to the task? The Audi TT would be too small for the long distance we would be traveling; the Q7 couldn’t keep up in the twists and turns; the R8 would be a bit flashy and though the A4 would be very equipped, this was a once in a life time trip… I had it! The Audi S8. Nothing compares to this machine. A 450 HP touring sedan with standard Quattro and a 0-60 in the low 5’s, how could I not have seen it sooner?! An all aluminum body based of that of the standard A8 to shed weight, and a 5.2L power plant derived from the Lamborghini Galardo, would be more then enough power. Startled by the ring of the telephone I was brought back from my afternoon daydream of the hot summer days, long roadtrips and a beautiful Audi. Right in front of my eyes sat the very car I had been imagining: a Daytona Gray pearl effect S8 with a black leather interior and carbon accents. With the elegance of the Alcantara headliner, heated rear seats and 20 inch wheels wrapped in a performance tire this monumental roadtrip could actually become a reality! As my Manager walked by he said, “you look deep in thought.”I replied, “just thinking about our next road trip” He laughed and reminded me I didn’t have any vacation left this year and the road trip would have to wait…

Now although I dont have any vacation time left and all I can do is dream, you can make this crosscountry tour a reality, come see me or “Contact Me Here” for more information on the Audi S8.

Nov 21

In the spirit of Thanksgiving Day, and in anticipation of mountains everywhere typically opening on Thanksgiving weekend, we thought it appropriate to post this pic of the stunning Audi R8 in our very own sort of snow dance. We welcome mountains and mountains of snow and very successful opening weekends for the resorts that lift us to the tops of said mountains! Does anyone share of our snow dance mentality?! Well, whether you do or don’t, we hope you enjoy the R8 regardless. Have a great day and fantastic long weekend with friends and family. Oh, and bring on the hot toddies!!

Sasha Grey + I Am Audi

Dec 30

We don’t need more reasons to love Sasha Grey – but if we were looking for one we found it yesterday. Sasha tweeted that she loves Audi and really #WantAnR8 – We think you should have an R8 Sasha and wanted to thank her for having such great taste! Granted, we know most everyone loves Audi and we know they really should – afterall, what’s not love?! But it always makes us happy to know there are always people willing to share their love for the brand with the masses on various social networks!! And of course, we are always flattered to be re-tweeted!! Thank you to everyone for making this such a great year for I Am Audi and for all the retweets, Facebook Likes, comments, Follow Fridays, and pictures you have all shared with us this year – we really appreciate it!! And Sasha, we hope to catch you in an I Am Audi shirt in 2012!!!!!

Audi TT Dragging Its Feet

Aug 6

After a very successful first weekend off, involving cliff jumping and loads of sunshine – we really do feel like resting on our laurels. Now we know that’s not typical for an Audi, and especially one as amazing as this, but as low to the ground as this beauty is, that’s how we are feeling about this Monday. We may have found the only pitfall in having weekends off and we now can fully understand the dreaded day of the week we have managed to circumnavigate for all these years and could certainly use some pointers on how to start the day off right, or at least have the weekend last a little longer! We hope you all had a great weekend and if you snapped any great pics of your Audi’s in the process, pass them along – we’d love to share them!

Vorsprung durch Technik – It’s Everything We Do At Audi

Dec 16

This is a great video showcasing some of the many amazing technologies Audi does so well – as well as the words that Audi lives by, Vorsprung durch Technik. From the very first Quattro to the MMI or Touch MMI Audi really does know how to create a driving experience that captures all the advancements they have made over so many years and roll them into one sexy looking car that not only functions exceptionally, but keeps drivers coming back for more. In addition, they always manage to capture a great presence in their videos – always sleek and with great music that pairs quite ingeniously. We love this, and of course, everything else Audi, but today we thought a little reminder of how great they are was in order! Check out Audi Deutschland on YouTube and see what you think- Have a great day! “An atmospheric film that translates the Audi brand philosophy into inspiring images.” We couldn’t agree with this description more!

Cyber Monday Audi A7 + Her

Nov 26

Happy Cyber Monday!!! While we really don’t get behind the idea of lining up for hours to fight for gifts simply to fall into the consumerism view of what “Christmas Spirit” is all about, (see our post from last week regarding the Thanksgiving Turkey fight we witnessed for additional reasons why!) we are all about the World Wide Web and we just thought we could add one more reason to keep you tuned to your computer on this day of deals to be had! So when you need a refreshing break from the percent signs everywhere today check out this beautiful Audi A7, and it’s arguably more stunning counterpart. Though we can’t quite figure why she wouldn’t be driving the shit out of that A7, we think she probably just needed a break. As do we. So, have a great Cyber Monday and a fantastic post-holiday week!

The Certified Pre-Owned Audi Q7 – The New Industry Standard

Aug 19

After you have chosen the Certified Audi Q7 you can congratulate yourself for making a great investment and choice for your new vehicle. Knowing that the Certified program that Audi offers is the best in the industry, with rigorous eligibility requirements such as less then 60,000 miles at time of retail sale, five years or newer and a requirement that the vehicle has to have been in service for at least four months or have more than 4,000 miles. After these definitive criteria have been met the Audi must then meet all technician inspection ( Audi Certified Website & 300+ Point Inspection Checklist ) and reconditioning requirements as well as have a CARFAX report to show the vehicles structural integrity. If you are asking yourself why so much goes into looking at the past of our Certified Audis the answer is simple: in order to guarantee the future of your vehicle it must have a clean and clear past and have been fully serviced prior to you owning it. If any of the wear items such as tires or brake components are less then 60% at the time of inspection they will be replaced, period! This ensures you have a new car experience with out the new car price and an extended manufactures warranty. Simply put, Audi Certified vehicles will give you and your family piece of mind with the standard four year 50,000 mile warranty and the extended warranty of up to six years or up to 100,000 miles. You will still get all of the benefits of the factory four year 50,000 mile warranty plus you will continue to be worry-free for an additional two years after it expires with such benefits as roadside assistance, trip interruption, loaner cars & even trip routing if you are in unfamiliar territory.
Certified Audi Q7
How can you improve the most comprehensive Certified warranty in the industry? The answer is by putting it on the finest vehicles on the market, Audi’s! Now what makes an Audi the best? How do we stay ahead of the curve? Our advancements in performance, safety, design and versatility make our vehicles and in particular the Q7 at the forefront of the industry. If you stand back and look at the Q7, and remember, this was Audis first Sport Utility Vehicle and this it was a late arriver in the segment in 2007, you will be impressed. First, take a look at the single piece front grill that gives the Q7 such a bold look. Continue on to the three lines that define the side of the Q7 giving it a poised look even when standing still. If you look further back you will see the coupe like design of the trapezoidal “C” pillar that elegantly blends into the all aluminum tailgate. Something that makes the Q7 tailgate so unique in the SUV segment is the integrated tail lights that allow for a great loading area in the rear as well as a very clean appearance. While at the rear of the vehicle you will have an option of tow package with capabilities of towing up to 6,600 LBS (pounds), rear view camera and park-tronic sensors for those tight spaces. Now leaving standard key design features unique only to the Q7 such as intergraded roof rails, the lowest drag coefficient in its class of .34, standard Quattro (Audi pioneered all wheel drive), FSI (Fuel Straight Injection also Audi pioneered, the Q7 has even more to offer. With optional safety and convenience features available like the Audi Side Assist blind spot detection system and the only 3 piece Panorama glass roof, you will have no shortage of versatility and enjoyment with your Q7.
Certified Audi Q7
I suppose that leaves you with 2 questions: out of the 10 available colors and 3 engine choices 3.6L V6 with 280 HP, 4.2L V8 with 350 HP and the new 3.0L Diesel with a whopping 407 foot pounds of torque, what engine do you go with? Go to your local Audi dealer and take a drive. This will give you another opportunity to experience the industry standard of interior craftsmanship, design and materials as you sit in the driver oriented cockpit. Enjoy the 14 speaker sound system, Bose or 1,000 watt optional B&O (Bang & Olufsen) as you control your iPod, Bluetooth device and Sirius Satellite radio through the easy to function and intuitive Audi developed MMI ( Multi Media Interface ) Relax knowing it has been time well invested and remind yourself of the great decision you made with the Audi Certified Pre-Owned Q7.
