With the dead-even result of our July 2010 comparative test between the Citroen DS3 and Mini Cooper S, all eyes have now turned to the arrival of Audi’s A1 to break the tie. Well forget the four-ringed boutique hatch from Ingolstadt for just a bit, because Citroen motorsports division’s just revealed the DS3 Racing…
The fastest and most expensive
TT yet attempts to rekindle the
soul of a legend.
Audi’s update to the 2011 model year Q7 doesn’t include revised looks. Instead, the Ingolstadt-based firm has ditched the 4,2-litre V8 petrol powerplant currently in use in favour of three new V6 engines and an eight-speed automatic transmission for the entire range.
Official details of the highly-anticipated Audi A1 have just been released and though Ingolstadt is treading unknown waters in this segment, does the touted “Mini-fighter” have what it takes to usurp its BMW-built rival?
Lexus has announced the arrival of its long-awaited IS-F model on the local market. Shoehorning a powerful V8 into the competent IS seems like a great idea, but it faces stiff competition…
We’ve had to wait more than two years for the arrival of new 311 kW 5,0-litre V8-powered Lexus IS-F and now it’s here… Priced to sell, specced to the max, and slots in squarely between the ever-feuding BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
The battle for the grand saloon crown between the German big three continues with the all-new Audi A8 making its international début at a preview just ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show this week. The new generation A8 goes head to head against the latest generation BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz’s facelifted S-Class.
Now that Audi has threatened BMW’s comfortable position as forced induction six-cylinder gurus with the 3,0-litre supercharged unit that does service in the current S4, the boys at Munich have become a little antsy about Ingolstadt’s more powerful engine – that’s why we now have a few upgrades available for 135i and 335i models.
With the German big three well into research and development for alternative power sources, the latest e-Tron Concept from Audi represents Ingolstadt’s grab for glory in light of rival machinery that recently emerged from Munich and Stuttgart.
Can a TT with extra muscle take on its iconic Porsche cousin?
