Abt Audi R8

The Abt R8 is finally out, and Edmunds has an article about the first drive. It features 523HP, 550Nm and an interesting body kit.

…and since MTM did something similar with the R8(530HP), and because they were a bit bored too, the guys from Kempten decided to pimp it out a bit as well, covering the engine bay in leather.

Marketing Bullshit – from Audi

Audi introduced the seemingly hilarious viral ad with the Beckers. The M3 guy is hilarious, the Bluetooth headset and everything, so is the Lexus guy, however portraying the Audi driver as considerate is preposterous, and I don’t understand why they had to fiddle with the wipers on the S Class. The first image show the car in the video, which are in a wiper blade replacement mode. The second image is one of a regular, same generation S Class. WTF, Audi of America?

Meet the Beckers

Audi has a new viral campaign in which it mocks BMW, Mercedes and Lexus owners. The first episode contains a lot of movie references, but it’s ok. At first sight I like it, but I’ll wait for more episodes before a final opinion.
