Audi exclusive Porsche Grauschwarz at Ed Carroll Audi in Colorado

We fell in love with the shade 'Grauschwarz' (Gray Black) as the Porsche GT3 RS paint code that was used on one of H&R's RS 3 sedans on display at SEMA. It's a great looking medium grey with undertones of blue, and thanks to Ed Carroll Audi in Fort Collins, CO, we now know it looks as good on an RS 7 performance as it did on an RS 3. What we know about this car is the basics. First off, it's an Audi RS 7 performance that's come available at Ed Carroll Audi. In addition to the Porsche ...

Audi exclusive S5 Sportback in Nogaro Blue at Audi North Houston

Nogaro Blue has been a mainstay amongst Audi enthusiasts since it first dropped in Europe on the RS2 Avant (then later in the USA on the B5-era S4). Not surprisingly, it's also a popular choice amongst those opting for Audi exclusive special order paint. Case in point is this S5 Sportback that just landed at Audi North Houston. Word from AJ Brivic of Audi North Houston is that the car is not only live and in the metal at their Texan dealership, it's also not currently spoken for. Rega...

by: Ray Reyes When it comes to Audi exclusive, Viktor Hadjiev at Continental Audi in Naperville, IL has taken the art of tailoring a tailored Audi build to a whole new level.

Audi exclusive RS 3 in #2D8 Green

  We're not 100% sure this is the color code #2D8  known simply as "Green" on the standard Audi exclusive color chart, but there's really nothing else like it in the "standard" offering from Audi's in-house tailoring department. What we are 100% sure of is that Audi UK's PR photography is on point in choosing such a special build for a photo shoot. To our eye, this is the exact same green Audi of America put on five of its Color.Storm mix of S3s run in the pre-facelift genera...

Audi exclusive Graphite Blue RS 3 at Audi Fort Collins

We're always fans of tailored builds from the catalogue of Audi exclusive, even moreso though when the person choosing the car's final spec goes with something both familiar and yet not terribly common. Such a move, as seen here on this Graphite Blue RS 3 at Audi Fort Collins, tends to give a fresh look to both a familiar a car a perhaps familiar paint color should you also be a Porsche fan. Of course, the RS 3 needs no introduction. Audi's A3 sedan fitted with the brand's best sporting k...

Find of the Day: 2008 Audi exclusive RS 4 Sedan in Phantom Black Pearl

words: Bill Cho, photos: Kelly Motorcars Every once in awhile (ok, pretty much every day), I look for cool cars for sale on the internet. Today, I ran across this 2008 RS 4. I see RS 4s come up for sale on a regular basis but what caught my eye on this one was the mileage listed- an almost unbelievable 9,650 miles. I say almost unbelievable because there isn't an actual photo of the odometer with the car on in the ad. The second thing I noticed was that this RS 4 is an Audi exclusive m...

Audi exclusive Nogaro Blue RS 3 Sedan

Born in the RS2 era, the color remains a favorite amongst enthusiasts. In as much, we're always game to check out early Nogaro Blue Audi exclusive builds... just like Ryan Blanchette's new RS 3 sedan. Ryan just took delivery of this car, and shared these photos from before it even left the showroom at Audi Peabody in Peabody, MA. He posted the pho...

Audi exclusive Sonoma Green RS 6 Avant. You’re Welcome.

Even though the Audi RS 6 Avant isn't available in the USA, it still gets legendary status amongst enthusiasts. Who doesn't love a high horsepower station wagon... much less one in the same Sonoma Green Metallic paint tone that's been getting so much attention on the new RS 5 coupé. Throw in brown leather and we suspect this is the sort of car that could create its own cult following. Yes, in some ways we know this is a tease. Cars like this RS 6 Avant aren't currently available in t...

Audi exclusive Cumulus Blue S5 Sportback at Oktoberfest with Audi Pittsburgh

While the autumn foliage may have been made up of warm yellow and amber orange, an Audi S5 Sportback we encountered last weekend while at Next Level Tuning's Oktoberfest event in Western, PA was anything but. The car, part of the current inventory at Audi Pittsburgh, was painted an icy cool Audi exclusive hue by the name of Cumulus Blue. Parked and situated, we approached the driver.
