Part 1 of a video I shot of a 2001 Audi allroad quattro that I reviewed for the Audi Club North America in January of 2001. The allroad was from Audi's press fleet.
This was filmed in the Utah desert, west of the Great Salt Lake. Nothing too exciting happens, but was kind of interesting when the allroad was a new vehicle on the market.
This, and Part 2, were the first time I tried my hand at shooting and editing video.
Audi allroad quattro - light offroad - Part 2
Video of a 2001 Audi allroad quattro that I reviewed for the Audi Club
North America in January of 2001. The allroad was from Audi's press fleet.
This was filmed in the foothills near Salt Lake City, Utah. Nothing too
exciting happens, but was kind of interesting when the allroad was a new
vehicle on the market.
Watch for the professional editing job when the day goes from bright and
sunny to overcast in a blink of an eye. ;) This, and Part 1, were the first
time I tried my hand at shooting and editing video.
Trying to break an Audi allroad in half
So I go away for what I thought was a relaxing Easter weekend on a farm in
the Cederberg with some friends. Turns out the farmer is a 4x4 buff and has
laid out a challenging technical course... He was very keen to see what my
allroad could do - and so was I!
Unfortunately I was too busy driving and trying to keep up with him to get
much footage, but for this obstacle I asked the farmer's neighbour to video
me going into and out of a ditch to test suspension and traction control...
I struggled on some of the slow steep sandy sections (wrong tyres!) but was
pleased a couple of days later when he had some visitors from the Cape Town
Landrover Club - and they couldn't do those sections either!
Well I did read somewhere that the Audi allroad is the only all-wheel drive
"softroader" that has successfully completed the Landrover proving grounds
2014 Audi RS7 Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/rs-7/2014/?id=32972 The RS is the top of
Audi's performance line-up. The RS 7 sits above the A7 and the S7 models.
The starting price is north of $105k but you get a whole ton of
performance. Under the hood lives a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V-8 monster that makes 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of
torque. The Audi RS 7 can run from 0-60 MPH in 3.7 seconds. Fuel economy is
actually very good at 16 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway thanks
to the cylinder deactivation system. With the RS 7 you also get a
wonderfully load and entertaining Exhaust.
The RS 7 gets special embroidered seats, badging, and unique interior
trims. The gauges are clear and easy to read and the pop-up navigation
screen is great. The rear passengers enjoy plenty of legroom but not as
much headroom since the hatchback design of the RS 7 cuts down that space.
That is one of the few negatives on this Sportback design. The benefit
though is an enlarged trunk area that has more cubic feet of space.
The driving experience is incredible. The car has the adaptive air
suspension which combines the best of both worlds: a comfortable ride
coupled with excellent body control. Also the Torque Vectoring Rear Diff is
on hand to keep you out of trouble. Bottom line: the Audi RS 7 delivers
just what it promises!

2013 Audi Allroad Quattro Off-Road Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2013 the Audi Allroad Quattro is back in the
United States and ready to take on both the more and less traveled roads of
America. Unlike the previous Allroad the new 2013 Quattro is based on the
Audi A4 Avant and not the A6. But Audi says the new car is just as big as
the previous Allroad and better yet it gets better fuel economy. And
according to Audi, it is even faster. So we (of course) wanted to find out
not only how it drives on the road but just as importantly importantly off
the road. Check out this first drive review and we test the new 2013 Audi
Allroad Quattro in the rugged mountains of Colorado.
