With the U.S. Presidential debate’s viewership right up there with the Superbowl, Audi decided to run a commercial spot right up there with the best of them. Just like the debate, a man and woman are fighting over the ticket, but for a very different reason. Bravo, Audi. Bravo.
The top-of-the-line TT gets a new aluminum 5-cylinder engine which pushes out 400 hp, launching the Coupe to 62mph in 3.7s and the Roadster in 3.9s. All-wheel drive and a fixed rear wing are standard, and adaptive dampers and carbon ceramic brakes are available.
The new TT looks and drives better than ever, with impressive grip and cornering, a zippy 220 hp turbo 4 with 258 lb-ft. of torque, and a luxuriously appointed interior. Its cool 12.3″ “virtual cockpit” combines an instrument panel, infotainment and navigation displays in one.
Audi amps up its already bonkers RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback with “Performance” models. Both AWD cars now have a whopping 605 hp, and the ability to overboost torque from 516 to 553 lb-ft. on demand. 0-to-60? 3.7s. Now can we get the wagon here in the States?
This custom version of Audi’s TT 2+2 has been blessed with an electrically-enhanced turbocharging system which turns its small 2.5L 5-banger into a 600hp monster that does 0-to-60 in 3.6 secs, and tops out at 192mph. Dat wing.
Another Marvel flick, another Stan Lee cameo. In this Kevin Smith directed promo for Audi, the master of the Marvel universe teaches us how to nail these sort of roles with aplomb. Naturally, the clip itself has some great cameos.
The Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept is a hybrid car with a 110kW electric motor and a 560hp 4L V8 engine. It has laser high beam lights with a 1,640 ft range and a 3D dashboard controlled via a touchpad on the center console.
