At the Daytona 24 Hours, the Audi R8 GRAND-AM has made its best showing to date: Filipe Albuquerque/Oliver Jarvis/Edoardo Mortara/Dion von Moltke won the GT category in a dramatic finale. The runners-up trailing the winners by 1.4 seconds were Ian Baas/Marc Basseng/René Rast/Frank Stippler.
Despite 65 percent of each lap having been driven at full throttle the R8 GRAND-AM that is powered by a production-derived 5.2-liter V10 FSI engine was running flawlessly on the notorious oval track for a whole day and night. With the class victory at Daytona Audi, under factory commitments or in cooperation with its customers, has now won the world's most important 24-hour races.
Audi's first 24-hour victory in the United States completes an impressive track record. After eleven victories at Le Mans plus the successes of the R8 LMS at Spa, Zolder and the Nürburgring, Audi -- thanks to its customer teams at Daytona -- has decided another classic 24-hour race in its favor.
Audi RS Moments of Truth - 1983: quattro
Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic
short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral
proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had
on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of Audi quattro and the advantage that four-wheel
drive technology afforded Audi race teams in the early 1980s on the FIA
World Rally Championship circuit. Audi driver and WRC Champion Hannu
Mikkola tells the story of his win at the 1983 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland
-- a grueling race full of big-air jumps and hairpin turns. Audi quattro
GmbH head of development Stephan Reil links the story to modern day
refinements of the quattro drivetrain bringing to life the technological
benefits of the crown gear and sport differential through dynamic track
footage of the all-new RS 5.

2012 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2012 Mercedes CL63 AMG. German performance tuning and muscle
at its finest. Opulent luxury and features, sleek seductive body styling,
not to mention a new biturbo powerplant
under the hood. Quite the head turner! During this presentation, we will
take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the
start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and
build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Nissan GT-R Street Race
Facebook http://on.fb.me/MvsGTR | Tweet! http://bit.ly/GTRvsM
READ: The other day in Mexico - Me and Amy lined up my Lamborghini
Murcielago (Full Larini Exhaust) vs.
the Nissan GT-R Premium (Cobb Y-Pipe & AccessPort). I was very surprised by
the outcome! I thought it'd be the exact opposite...the GT-R would pull
down low then the Murcielago at higher speeds, but not so.
In terms of production quality I think this is probably one of my best
videos to date. If you enjoyed it definitely let me know so I can create
more like it :)
