Filed under:
,,,,,,


Last year, we brought you news of an automated valet parking system that would allow visitors to the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart to have their cars drop them off and then go park itself autonomously. Now, one of Daimler’s German rivals plans to offer similar capabilities. Volkswagen Group, which includes Porsche and Audi, is currently testing autonomous parking at the Hamburg Airport, with plans to put the technology into consumer vehicles beginning in 2020.

Audi R8 RWS a compelling bargain at $139,950

Filed under:
,,,,


The Audi RWS (Rear Wheel Series) bundles two large surprises in its compact aluminum frame. The first surprise is that it exists at all, this being the first rear-wheel drive production Audi since the 1938 Audi 920 – long before Audi was the carmaker we now know. The second surprise is the price, the R8 RWS needing just $139,950 to take home, a figure that includes destination. Stripping Quatto, complexity, and weight means stripping $26,200 from the price of the standard R8, while retaining eve

Latest Audi A6 Avant is a lovely piece of forbidden fruit

Filed under:
,,,


We’d love to tell you that the pretty blue wagon just above is coming soon to the United States, but we can’t. Because the next-generation Audi A6 Avant probably isn’t coming to the United States at all. Here in the States we get the seductively attractive A5 and S5 Sportback, and the swoopy A7, S7, and RS 7 hatchbacks instead of the traditional A6 wagon. We’re not going to complain (much), because we do love the aforementioned Audis, but we’ll still grumble just a little bit over the lost pract

We love the 2018 Audi TT RS. We love its 400 horsepower turbocharged inline-five, its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and its clean, driver-focused interior. Still, there’s always room for improvement and refinement. It seems Audi agrees, as a refreshed version of Audi’s hottest little coupe was spotted lapping the Nürburgring with some updated bodywork.

2019 Audi S6 Avant wagon spied showing off its sleek new lines

Filed under:

There’s something really wonderful about performance wagons. Just this past week, we’ve had a 2018 Volvo V90, 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake and a 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo pass through Fort Autoblog. While these are all wonderful in their own way, Americans still miss out on some really good stuff from Europe, like the new 2019 Audi S6 Avant we see here in camouflaged garb.
