Ingolstadt/Klettwitz – In the 100th year of its existence, another anniversary is coming up for the Audi brand: After Tom Kristensen’s triumph at the Hockenheim season opener, Audi is aiming to clinch its 50th victory in the DTM – in which case the brand with the four rings would pass BMW on the perpetual list of the best contenders in the most popular international touring car series.
The first opportunity to achieve this ranking will present itself to the squad around Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich on May 31 at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz. Up to now, however, the circuit located 130 kilometers south of Berlin has not exactly been the Audi A4 DTM’s favorite track. Audi clinched victory only once at the EuroSpeedway on its own power: In September 2005, Mattias Ekström prevailed against Mercedes driver Gary Paffett in an impressive duel.
Nevertheless, the names of Audi and Ekström appear on the winners’ list of DTM races at the EuroSpeedway a second time: In 2004, the Swede inherited victory because Gary Paffett ran out of fuel after crossing the finish line and the tank of his Mercedes did not contain the residual amount of gasoline prescribed by the regulations.
After the one-two-three-four victory at the Hockenheimring, Audi comes to East Germany with a handicap: The rules require the Audi A4 DTM to start from the EuroSpeedway grid with ten kilograms more weight than the Mercedes cars. This means that part of the “Vorsprung durch Technik” advantage which Audi Sport achieved during the further development of the Audi A4 DTM in winter will be lost. At Hockenheim, the “R14 plus,” which is the internal model designation of the 2009 A4 DTM version, was clearly superior to the current Mercedes C-Class.
The Audi drivers clinched a total of 31 out of 39 possible points at the season opener – an impressive tally in which the drivers of the 2008-spec cars had a part as well. The Briton Oliver Jarvis achieved his first podium result in the DTM, the German Markus Winkelhock, in fourth place, the best result of his DTM career.
Audi could have scored even more points if Mattias Ekström had not lost the victory that already seemed to be sure due to a puncture on the penultimate lap. The Swede will do everything within his power to recover lost ground and has good chances to do so: The two-time DTM Champion has been on the podium six times so far at the EuroSpeedway – more than any other current DTM driver.
Tom Kristensen, who has fond memories of the EuroSpeedway as well, comes to the venue as the front runner of the standings: The Dane, who started his last DTM season with victory at Hockenheim, achieved as many as three podium finishes at the EuroSpeedway.
Like at Hockenheim, qualifying will predetermine the outcome of the race to some extent. At the request of the TV channel, the session will only start at 2:35 pm (local time), one hour later than usual. The race will be broadcast live on “Das Erste” on Sunday at 1:45 pm as usual. I want to thank Audi Sport for this great article and keeping us updated, of course I will finish it off with a video.
Hump Day folks… and we are getting by. If you look outside your window and see this, we are very envious. Though some parts of the Pacific North West woke up to something similar, we have had only a few fleeting moments of snow. We would like to officially make this post our make shift snow dance, as we would love to wake up to a white covered world and we invite everyone to participate in our efforts! Of course, if you have an Audi, you know that snow is one of it’s favorite driving conditions and we just want ours to do what it was meant for! Have a great day everyone.

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!
For everyone that wishes they had a convertible as these sunshine filled days are upon us – Audi offers you the best of the best! The R8 on its own is a sight to behold, but add a convertible to the mix and you really do have it all! Check out some info on the 2011 A8 as well as the new convertible coming your way!
The new A8 luxury four-door sedan is more aggressive and much larger than the previous version. Longer (5,137 millimetres) and wider (1,949 mm) than its immediate competition, the new A8 is lower for a more sporting silhouette.
That attitude is backed up with performance. Not only is the A8’s latest aluminum space frame torsionally stiffer than before, it’s also lighter. Factor in the increased output from the 372-horsepower 4.2-litre FSI V8 and the all-wheel-drive A8 scampers to 100 kilometres an hour in just 5.7 seconds.
To go along with that performance are a number of luxury and functional touches. A camera-based system allows the A8 to auto-dim its LED headlights. The automatic climate control system has four separate climate zones and the 12-way-adjustable front seats can be exchanged for a pair of 22-way seats that are ventilated as well as heated and can be had with a pneumatic massager.
The A8’s audio system is a 1,400-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo with 19 speakers.
AUDI R8 SPYDER 5.2 FSI QUATTRO
The V10 engine produces 525 horsepower and launches the open-top two-seater to 100 kilometres an hour in 4.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 313 km/h. Featuring technologies such as the Audi Space Frame (ASF), quattro permanent all-wheel drive, full-LED headlights and with an innovative seat belt microphone available as an option, the R8 Spyder 5.2 FSI quattro is the new top-of-the-range Audi.
The two-seater has a cloth top weighing just 30 kilograms, which keeps the car’s weight and centre of gravity low. The soft top opens and closes automatically in just 19 seconds and can operate at speeds up to 50 km/h.
The car also features the aluminum Audi Space Frame, giving it a weight of just 1,720 kg with the standard six-speed manual transmission. The Spyder is also available with an optional six-speed automatic transmission.
The R8 Spyder features plenty of safety items to keep all that fun under control, including rollover protection in the bulkhead, air bags in front and head and thorax side air bags in the backrests.
In my opinion one of the greatest cars ever built, the Audi Sport Quattro a car well before its time that molded the future of the Audi brand. As stated by Wikipedia “The Audi Sport Quattro was a Quattro programme car developed for homologation for Group B rallying in 1984, and sold as a production car in limited numbers. It featured an all aluminium alloy 2,133 cc (130.2 cu in) (2.1 L) 20v DOHC engine slightly smaller than that of the Audi Quattro (in order to qualify for the 3-litre engine class after the scale factor applied to turbo engines). In road-going form, the engine was capable of producing 225 kW (306 PS; 302 bhp), with the competition cars initially producing around 331 kW (450 PS; 444 bhp).”
“The vehicle also featured a body shell composed of carbon-kevlar and boasting wider arches, wider wheels (nine inches as compared to the Ur-Quattro’s optional 8-inch-wide (200 mm) wheel rim), the steeper windscreen rake of the Audi 80 (requested by the Audi Sport rally team drivers to reduce internal reflections from the dashboard for improved visibility) and, most noticeably, a 320 mm (12.6 in) shorter wheelbase. This was carried out in order to improve handling potential in the face of newer, smaller competition, such as the Lancia 037 and the Peugeot 205 T16, which had been purpose-built from the start for Group B rules. A total of 224 cars of this “short version” Sport Quattro were built, and were offered for sale at a heady price of 203,850 German Marks.” And I am fortunate enough to see the Audi Sport Quattro in the flesh!
This weekend will truly be amazing for Dan Gross, because his #WantAnR8 dream came true! Dan has an Audi R8 this entire weekend like Julie (@jmdc88 on Twitter) had a few weeks back. So I guess Audi really does make dreams come true and just maybe next time it might be your turn to #WantAnR8!!
Audi is not the first to do night vision in their cars but they are the fist to advance it to this level. It looks like this group is having a good time as they test the night vision in this 2011 Audi A8. As described by Audi the option: “• Night vision assistant (optional) with thermal-imaging camera (infrared). o Shown in the driver information display, the pedestrian detection software highlights people and animals and determines if a critical situation is imminent.” I am sure we will see this option trickle down to other Audi vehicles; I am happy to see Audi getting into night vision technology.
We have said it before, quattro does not replace bad judgment when it comes to driving. Now with that out of the way we got these photos from merkur-online.de , however unfortanatly for us we can’t translate – please feel free to let us know what this says. It makes us a little sad to know that other people are wrecking Audi’s like the RS3 before we even get a chance to drive them in the United States, such is life. We would like to thank audirsclub for sharing this on Facebook.
I have heard it said that the new B8 (2010 +) S4 is understated and resembles the look of the 2009 S-Line A4. I agree with the latter part of this statement, however I can not disagree more with the initial part. The new 2010 S4 is bold and the body truly comes to life when you understand what kind technology is under the surface; in short I think it is perfectly executed. With the new design you not only get a great looking Audi you also get the advantage of the Audi MLP (Modular Longitudinal Platform) that creates that perfect balance of extremely functional Quattro sedan that is very fun to drive. Unless you have had the privilege to drive the S4 from back in the day to the Bi-Turbo V6 and back to the heavy V8, you could really not know how great the new S4 handles. As far as design, Audi is not BMW and it is not Mercedes or any other manufacturer. Our design stays true and functional and the look is “Audi”. As far a driving impressions, they are to come. I wanted to share pictures for now and clear the air a bit on the look and true versatility of the new 2010 Audi S4. However I have heard the 2010 S4 is very quick! I will keep you all posted on personal impressions and feedback from others who have put the 2010 S4 through its paces. As always thank you all for keeping up with I Am Audi and if you have any question please “Contact Me Here”.
In 2 weeks I Am Audi , your top source for all things Audi, will be on hand to display some of the 2010 Audi line up at the 2010 Portland International Auto Show. The Portland International Auto Show will be hosted at The Oregon Convention Center in the Oregon Ballroom between BMW & Mercedes. Audi has some exciting new technologies such as Clean Diesel! We would love to meet you so make sure to stop by the Audi area and take a look at the new product and let me show you the Audi difference.
Anticipated to be on hand are:
2010 Audi Q7 3.0T Diesel Quattro Sport Utility
2010 Audi Q5 3.2 TFSI Quattro Crossover
2010 Audi A3 2.0 Diesel TDI Sportback
2010 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro Avant
2010 Audi S5 4.2L Quattro Coupe
2010 Audi A5 2.0T Quattro Coupe
Audi’s first Sport utility vehicle, the Q7, was released in 2006 and had been criticized for being late to the game in the world of SUV’s. I couldn’t disagree more.
The Audi Q7 amplifies all the things we look for in a well versed Sports Utility Vehicle. Available in either the 4.2 ltr V8 or the 3.6 ltr V6 engine, the Q7 is well equipped to handle what ever challenge we put it up to on a daily basis. Knowing the Q7 was never intended to be submerged in the swamps of the everglades, it has been well prepared for our daily routine.
The Q7 has been awarded with the top safety pick from the IIHS. With 6 airbags and 5 star front and side crash ratings, safety is never a question.
Driving the Q7 feels more like driving a car then a SUV. With its rigid chassis and firm suspension you are well anchored to the ground at highway speeds and through tight corners. In the city the Q7 is easy to navigate. With its open cabin and rear view camera, parking in a tight spot is made easy. If you are considering your next SUV, think about the Q7 and all that it offers.
When looking, what you will find, is safety, practicality and true usable versatility in the well designed Audi Q7.
As for being late to the game, I believe the Audi Q7 is right on time, with the prefect balance of Sports Utility and performance.
We love Audi and while that does mean that we have near impeccable taste – it does not mean that we are always tasteful. We couldn’t help but pass up this incredibly strange, and by default, cool video and randomly weird picture for your viewing pleasure. We can’t be certain what it is really about or what the significance of 02.15.12 is – but there is an Audi in the background and that is a win, no matter how you look at it.
Besides that, the song is a catchy take on another song that you may or may not have heard and we pretty much guarantee you will have a hard time getting the beat out of your head. Happy hump day folks – bet you can’t say Meow ten times! Check these guys out on Twitter @

Audi is still tinkering with the thought of offering carbon-ceramic brakes in America, and it looks as if it may actually happen. The brake discs, which do add to the overall production cost of the vehicle, are offered overseas on the R8, and the RS6, not currently offered in America. Audi says to expect the new brakes as soon as 2011, and Car and Driver speculates that R8 will be the first model outfitted.
The RS5, which has been confirmed for U.S. sale and is expected on our shores in 2012, is available with optional carbon-ceramics – but only up front.
On a side note, the TT RS is expected to arrive in America soon, equipped with a six-speed manual, but exactly when is unclear.
Tomorrow is the 2011 Sebring race and we will be cheering for Audi! You really have no excuse not to watch this or listen to it live on Radio Le Mans , it is guaranteed to be very exciting. Audi and Peugeot have been battling it out for years in the motor-sport arena, Audi is focused on the win at Sebring in preparation for the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. Here is a self made video from Allan Mcnish and his perspective on the 2011 race at Sebring.
If you happen to take part in an auto show this year that involves Audi – you will notice something very different from everyone else. Audi has teamed up with Digital Collateral , a technology company with a very unique platform, that enables customers to have all the information of various models sent right to their cell phone or computer with the use of a scanned bar code. Audi launched this program at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week.
The initiative is expected to reduce the use of paper and printed materials up to 90% this season alone. Customers will like it because the information is clearly handy as we all almost always on our cell phones these days! But also because there is no preregistration required and the service is complimentary. Fear not if you don’t have a smart phone either – the platform can be used by anyone who can send a text message from their phone. “Audi has always sought to deliver a superior experience through superior technology. Digital Collateral’s software allows us to reach more consumers more efficiently, while simultaneously reducing the costs and environmental impact associated with delivering the information our customers want,” said Scott Keogh, Chief Marketing Officer, Audi of America. Audi is always aimed at delivering an exceptional experience as well as being extremely eco-conscious – looks like they have attained both with this latest venture. Read the article Here at PRnewswire for more detailed information on the launch and where you can expect to find it. Enjoy!
We captured the sound of the beast!! While in Germany, at an undisclosed location, we were lucky enough to catch the start-up sound of the Audi RS3 ! We don’t think it will be long until we see the RS3 in the US – Audi has not confirmed this yet, but we believe we will most likely see it as a 2013 model and we are sure looking forward to it! Play the video below and listen to the sound of the inline 5-cylinder turbo for yourself!
I want one! My wife exclaimed, the white looks so nice with the red TDI. I reminded her we don’t own a Diesel Audi, she didn’t care she loves the look of the travel mug and the idea of Diesel. Well that being said I think this travel mug is one of the better looking styles because it is bold and clean, very modern look. Another great product from the Audi accessories department and it even fits perfectly into the cup holders in the car, what more could you want. Call Sunset Porsche Audi parts department and let them know you saw it here!
I was suprised to find how little information there was on the Audi B5 Nav Plus Retrofit, it seems like this would be a common mod, I guess not. So I decided to find someone with a little experience, Jeff in the parts department has actually retrofitted the RNS-E Nav Plus system into his B5 A4 and he did a killer job, the fitment is exceptional. The install took Jeff several month to complete.
The first roadblock was the can-bus communication between the navigation and the radio was tough to establish, the time on the cluster did not match the Nav Plus screen. Second the Bluetooth was difficult to wire (make sure your wiring connections are 100%) it is most likely not a faulty Bluetooth module. The B5 A4 was never designed to have this system, so needless to say you will need to modify the heater by removing approx: 3 inches. Jeff did this install on 3/20/2008 so a tone of information is available, regardless this is not simple but well worth the effort.
Sorry everyone for my hiatus over the last few weeks, we were in Europe. We kept it pretty quiet but at the last minute we decided to travel abroad and it was amazing. Typically I would have posted from the road and took I Am Audi through France, Italy and Germany with us but I decided to “unplug” and relax. Over the next couple of weeks I will tell you all about it and share pictures from Ingolstadt , Audi Headquarters; what an amazing place. But for now I will ease into things slowly and post the world debut of the Audi A7 . Have a great end to your week everyone!
Most of us would love the opportunity to race one of these magnificent Audi R8’s, and some of us have even had the chance to do so. But what could be better than having one of these power houses all to yourself with no one around and no limits on the type of driving you could do with it??? We think that would be pretty amazing. Credit for this picture goes to Quattroworld and it is an impressive shot. Of course, if you are at all familiar with this type of weather you must have spend some time in the Pacific North West!! Have a great Friday everyone – we hope dreaming of racing makes the day go by really fast! Click here for a larger version.
Audi is making big plans to increase and even dominate it’s market in the next few years. According to CEO, Rupert Stadler, Audi is in line to over take the hierarchy of the luxury segment, even leaving its main competitor, BMW in the dust. Is this a lofty goal for Audi? Or is the “littler” guy really going to come out on top? Only time will tell, but in the mean time, Audi will keep producing an excellent product line up, with new additions, like the A7, that are sure to please. Check out the article below for some additional information – and go Audi !!!
Audi’s got its sights set on becoming the world’s number one luxury automaker
and, if you’re one to have faith in Audi CEO Rupert Stadler, that scenario may come sooner rather than later.
In an interview with Automotive News, Stadler made it poignantly clear that Audi is fast on the heels of BMW and, in a few years time, the Ingolstadt-based automaker will supplant its local rivals on top of the luxury car hierarchy.
“Our target is to become the leading premium brand in the world,” he said. “It won’t happen in 2010. It won’t happen in 2011. But it will definitely happen.”
Stadler’s words aren’t made by a CEO that’s doing more barking than biting; he’s got the facts to back it up too. So far, Audi sales in 2010 compared to the same time frame last year are already 20% higher, having already sold 450,000 vehicles this year alone. Sales in America for Audi vehicles have also spiked by 30% from its 2009 numbers, and that’s not even counting the 200,000 or so vehicles that could find is way to China before the end of the year.
Add those numbers to an overwhelming interest in the brand’s much-hyped A1 premium compact and the impending release of a perennial hot-seller – the Audi A7 – as well as a new Q3 next year, and it doesn’t seem to be far-fetched to think that now Audi may be gearing itself up to overtaking BMW in the near future.
With all the positive Press surrounding the new 2010 Audi S4 it is no wonder we are excited about this car. I don’t have to tell you about the 7-Speed S-Tronic transmission, rear sport differential or the incredibly efficient and potent supercharged 3.0T power plant in this cutting edge Audi. What I will say is that Audi is stepping out of there comfort zone and letting people know we make the best cars in the world. We are not going to comprises anywhere, and as for the competition bring it on!
Good Morning Everyone!!! Few things instill such glee as a child stomping around in puddles letting the mud fly all around. It’s a careless feeling most of us can’t ever remember having, and yet try daily to take pieces of that early wonder back whenever we have a chance. Pretty sure that if you are a rally car driver, or some other form of race car driver, professional athlete or movie star you have a better notion of what it is we are talking about, but for most of us that carefree joy is hard to come by and for that reason, we are sharing this amazing old school Audi rally pic with you in hopes it may capture some of that child-like wonder from long, long ago. We can’t say it will work for sure, but what we can say is that given the chance – we too would be blasting around in puddles leaving only dirt trails behind. Have a great day!

The local Portland Audi Dealer, Sunset imports has been the Oregon & Lower Washington Audi Specialist for the past 30 years. Lots has changed with Audi in that time and much has changed with Sunset as well. As I was leaving the office yesterday the sky looked more beautiful then usual, and I remembered daylight savings was the reason. But I was reminded how lucky I was to live in such a great city and have such a great dealer behind me. Have a great November – Drive safe and make sure your Audi is ready for the Winter to come.
We don’t really have to say why we love it, we think it’s pretty obvious – but just in case anyone out there needs some swaying, there is something about this picture that we just can’t help but be somewhat memorized by. Call it the contrast of red and white, call it the bare naked leg starring back at us, call it the distinguishing factors that remind us this first generation Audi TT – call it what you like, but girls and cars, really need no explanation. Have a great day!

The last few months have been big months with doors closing and a ton of opportunities being presented to me. I am proud to say that I Am Audi has been chosen as a Webvisionary Finalist , this is an honor and a very special time for the site. Mr. Diggles took my vision of a place to join and enjoy the thing we love without pressure or conflict and he built it. Benjamin and I would talk for hours I would say things like “People love cars, so how come they don’t enjoy buying them?” It really bothered me that people hated the process so much. I Am Audi is very young in comparison to the car industry, but times are changing and people want that change. People want to engage with the person they are working with, ask questions, gather information and learn about the Brand – I Am Audi is a place you can do all of that. To be honest my vision was more than just a website, it was a community based around common values and Benjamin Diggles you have done an amazing job in making this “project” all come together. Thank you!
To the best of my knowledge Audi has never built a fire truck or aircraft elevator so it is very unlikely that you will see one of our cars on this episode of Top Gear. I think Audi would do pretty well at producing machines for odd jobs, we seem to have the engineering thing down to a fine art. Enjoy your Wednesday and let me know what you want to see.
Happy Tuesday Folks!! The day has sort of slipped away on us and we can only hope the rest of the week follows suit. We’re sharing this lowered Audi A7 today as a reminder of how good these great machines can look with a tasteful drop in height! Pretty sure everyone already knows that – but sometimes a little reminder can go a long way. We hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. Ours is – but that could be on account of the freezing temperatures and shining sun, either way, we’re not complaining!

Everyone knows how much I love the Audi A1 and of course how much I am bothered by the fact that we will likely never see it in the US – but I have to say that now that I have seen it, in person; sat in it and even go as far as saying – bonded with it – I am even more disgruntled when I find great videos like this of people enjoying the A1 in everyday life!!! Sure – they aren’t everywhere yet, but once you see how many great small and compact cars there are like this in Europe, it is no wonder that this latest Audi is going to steal the show!
Enjoy this video of a “secret” test drive of the A1!
Although the 2009 Audi Allroad is based on the 2009 B8 A4 Avant we will most likely never see it in North America. I do like the look of the Allroad and think the off-road styling looks nice, however if we did have it in the United States it would compete directly with the Q5. I know that for the people who have owned an Audi Allroad they loved and it is those same people who have fallen in love with the new Audi Q5.
I added this video of the Audi Allroad to keep everyone up to date with our world wide product line up. I will continue to showcase original content in order to be your top source for Portland Audi.
