How Far Can You Drive With A Fuel Gauge Reading 0 Km? 14

Owning a car that tells you exactly how much range it has left can be a nerve-racking experience, especially if you’re prone to delaying refueling for as long as possible.

On a mission to see just how accurate the predicted range of a car is, Australian comedians and radio hosts Hamish and Andy jumped behind the wheel of an Audi SQ5.

The duo commenced their test as soon as the Audi’s range dropped to 0 km and didn’t expect to be on the road for much longer. They were very wrong.

As the minutes ticked by, the punchy SUV continued to soldier on, storming past the 20 km (12 mile) and 50 km (31 mile) marks. Remarkably, the SUV kept on going, eventually coming to a halt some 111.9 km (69.5 miles) after indicating it had a range of 0 km.

Importantly, it’s worth noting that the test was carried out at highway speeds and city driving wouldn’t have allowed for such a generous range. What’s more, running your car’s tank to empty isn’t recommended, as it can damage the fuel pump.

Artsy Video Shows Audi RS6 Avant Performance’s Brutal Side 12

There may be a new Audi A6 coming our way soon,  together with an even wilder RS6 Avant, but the current iteration still holds its ground.

And we’re not even talking about extreme tuned examples we see on the drag strip, but rather a stock RS6 Performance edition, fitted only with an optional Akrapovic exhaust system, from Audi Sport.

Shot in an artsy way by Auditography in Malmo, Sweden, the film showcases the super estate that hides its brutal power from a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, under a super practical and roomy body with elegant lines. 

Total output stands at 605PS (597hp) and 750Nm (553lb-ft), which allows it to reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill in just 3.7sec. Top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph), but it can be lifted to 280km/h (174mph), with the optional dynamic package.

It can do this while claiming to consume an average of 9.6 l/100 km (24.5 US mpg / 29 UK mpg), as estimated by the manufacturer, while emitting 223 g/km of CO2. Not bad for a car that’s almost 5 years old, right?

Watch New Audi A4 3.0 V6 Diesel Go Flat Out On The Autobahn 9

Despite falling out of favor with many consumers over the emissions scandal, modern diesel engines continue to boast benefits like high levels of torque from low rpms, and very low fuel consumption.

This is exactly why automakers have a hard time letting the oil-burners go for good, but it seems that they will eventually do so, in the coming years, but that’s a completely different story.

Until they do, enthusiasts can still enjoy diesel-powered machines, such as the Audi SQ7, and even the very decent 3.0-liter TDI A4 of the B9 generation. In this case, the latter was taken to the famous Autobahn, for a top speed run, and it didn’t need that much to indicate 253km/h (157mph) on the GPS speedometer.

This version of the car, which cannot be had in the United States, uses a 3-liter V6 engine that’s shared with a multitude of vehicles made by the Volkswagen Group. It puts down 272PS (268hp) and 600Nm (443lb-ft) of torque, and can be had from just over €44,000 ($51,060) in Germany, with FWD, or for approximately €3,000 ($3,480) more, with the Quattro AWD.

Watch A Tuned Audi 80 Hit 290Km/h In Half-Mile Run 3

There was a time when Audi’s lineup was very limited, and it included, among others, the 80, which is the A4’s direct predecessor.

Produced from 1966 to 1996, over four generations, the premium compact car printed money for the Ingolstadt-based carmaker, and millions of examples eventually rolled off the assembly lines.

Getting your own example means paying from a couple hundred dollars, to over $45,000, for the Quattro version, in pristine condition, which has its roots deeply buried in motorsport.

However, you most likely won’t be able to purchase one with more power than most modern supercars, including the McLaren 720S. If the limited details that accompany the clip posted below are correct, then this Audi 80 churns out a staggering 930hp, from a highly modified VR6 turbo engine.

What makes it even more impressive is that besides the large intercooler visible from beneath the grille and front bumper, double exhaust pipes at the rear, and multi-spoke OZ alloys, there’s nothing else to give it away.

Filmed during the Race 1000 event in Germany, the car managed to run the half-mile in just a little over 17 seconds, reaching a top speed in excess of 290km/h (180mph).

New Audi Q8 Sounds Awfully Quiet On The Nurburgring 3

Audi is getting ready to put an end to the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe segment domination by working on their very own “SAV” or coupe crossover, dubbed the Q8.

Caught on the Nurburgring, this prototype continues to keep its camo vinyl wraps on almost its entire body, unlike the one scooped last month that was more eager to reveal some of its lines, most of which come from the Q8 Concept shown in Detroit earlier this year.

But while its exterior is inspired by the show car, inside, the new Audi Q8 resembles to the latest A8 flagship saloon, as it benefits from the same pair of touchscreen displays. The rest of the cabin is adorned with aluminum glossy black trims, and we also expect plenty of soft touch materials, meant to elevate its premium stance.

Audi’s MLB platform is the foundation stone for the new sports crossover, which uses aluminum and carbon fiber, and allows it to get a variety of powertrains. The rumor-mill has it adopting the tri-turbo 4.0-liter V8 diesel engine from the SQ7, a 48-volt PHEV making almost 470hp in the SQ8, and a twin-turbo V8 gasoline-powered unit that’s expected to be used in the RS version.

The automaker continues to keep the official reveal date close to its chest, but it’s expected to come out sometime next year, as a 2019MY.
