Audis on Ice - KBB puts Quattro to the test
Audi invited us to Canada to drive some of their all-wheel drive equipped
cars on ice. Little did we know we'd be piloting a host of cars unavailable
in the United States. In this video Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio drives
the Audi RS5, A1 and A7; each equipped with Quattro all-wheel drive.

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.

Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going
examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the
most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to
drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up

Audi Quattro Extreme towed away at the Nürburgring !
On the 1st of November 2011, yd222 recorded this Audi Quattro Extreme at
the famous gas station at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. There were some
technical problems with the car so it had to be towed away. This Audi has a
4 cylinder turbo engine (no 5 cylinder!)
that produces 450 - 500 bhp. On the Akademisches in Hockenheim this car
killed all Porsches!

Audi Quattro - Group B, the Days of Madness
Credits for this video: www.youtube.com/amjayes
Group B was introduced by the FIA in 1982 as replacement for both Group 4
(modified grand touring) and Group 5 (touring prototypes) cars.
Group A referred to production-derived vehicles limited in terms of power,
weight, allowed technology and overall cost. The base model had to be mass
produced (5000 units/year) and had to have 4 seats. Group A was aimed at
ensuring a large number of privately-owned entries in races.
By contrast, Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the
number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other
series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were
permitted, and there were no restrictions on Boost, which turned out to mean almost
unlimited power. The category was aimed at car manufacturers by promising
outright competition victories and the subsequent publicity opportunities
without the need for an existing production model. There was also a Group
C, which had a similarly lax approach to chassis and engine development,
but with strict rules on overall weight and maximum fuel load.
Group B was initially a very successful concept, with many manufacturers
joining the premier World Rally Championship, and increased spectator
numbers. But the cost of competing quickly rose, and the performance of the
cars proved too much, resulting in a series of fatal crashes. As a
consequence Group B was cancelled at the end of 1986 and Group A
regulations became the standard for all cars until the advent of World
Rally Cars in 1997.
In the following years Group B found a niche in the European Rallycross
Championship, with cars such as the MG Metro 6R4 and the Ford RS200
competing as late as 1992. For 1993, the FIA replaced the Group B models
with prototypes that had to be based on existing Group A cars, but still
followed the spirit of Group B, with low weight, 4WD, high turboBoost
pressure and staggering amounts of power.
Audi Quattro Concept review - Auto Express
Audi is heading back to the future! Thirty years after the original quattro
rewrote the rulebook, Audi has re-imagined its most iconic model for the
modern age. But can the Quattro Concept, first shown at the Paris show last
month, do justice to its illustrious ancestors? Auto Express was first to
put this year's most exciting new model to the test.

Beetle spot at the American Super Bowl
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - "The Super Bowl is a TV event
with one of the highest viewer totals in the world. We intend to take this
opportunity to present our latest models to a very wide audience and to
heighten the emotional associations of the Volkswagen brand," says Luca de
Meo, Head of Group Marketing and Head of Marketing, Volkswagen Passenger
As in the Oprah Winfrey Show in November 2010, the new Beetle is shown as a
silhouette in the "Black Beetle" commercial. In a fantasy world, a beetle
is involved in a race with other "bugs". The parallels with car chases from
films and TV shows are no accident. At the end, the beetle reaches the
finishing line first and its silhouette is transformed into that of the
