Group B. Just say the words in certain company (as in, our kind of company) and you'd better be prepared with a mop and bucket for all the drool you'll need to clean up.

Report: Audi Quattro Slated For 2015 Release 27
Aug
Posted by Darryl in audi, Audi Quattro, Automotive, Concept Vehicle, News on 08 27th, 2012

Audi is reportedly set to introduce a Quattro successor in 2015 to slot in between the sporty TT and exotic R8. We already had a glimpse at a Quattro concept back in 2010 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original. Many onlookers were sure to see a new version of the Quattro in the years to come and now it has been confirmed that we will get our wish.

What we are uncertain of is if the new Quattro will be anything like the Concept car featuring the underpinnings from the Audi RS5 with over 400 horsepower and a 6-speed manual transmission to direct power to all four wheels through a Quattro torque-vectoring 40:60 power split rear-biased system.

Some reports hint towards more of a crossover-coupe-like design with two doors and four seats for the new Audi Quattro. As a more realistic expectation, power for the new Quattro will likely be provided by a 2.5-liter five cylinder engine with 375 horsepower directed through an S-tronic dual-clutch transmission. That may allow the Quattro to scoot from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds.

The new Audi Quattro release in 2015 could coincide with the Quattro’s 35th anniversary in March of 2015. Reportedly production will yield about 10,000 units yearly.

Video: Audi Writes ‘The Legend Of quattro’ 17
Jan
Posted by Kurt Ernst in audi, Audi Quattro, Automotive, Kurt, video, Videos on 01 17th, 2012

“Moby Dick” is considered a classic piece of American literature. Written by Herman Melville, it tells the tale of Captain Ahab, a whaler obsessed with harpooning a great white whale called “Moby Dick.” On a deeper level, it’s a tale about man’s struggle with the universe, and against forces beyond his control.

Audi’s latest ads are a parody of Melville’s classic, complete with an obsessed tow-truck driver named, you guessed it, Ahab. Replace an albino sperm whale with a white A6 quattro, substitute snowbound roads for the high seas, and you get the setting for Audi’s latest pitch.

Expect to see these ads in rotation during the NFL playoffs, and they’re backed by banner and video ads on skiing sites, weather sites and automotive enthusiast sites.
