[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50418"] words: Bill, photo: carwow Mat is up to it again and this time, it's an Audi Sport family feud. He puts the RS Q8 up against an Audi V10. It's not a V10 plus but it's had some work on it to put out the power of a plus. How will twin turbo go against naturally aspirated? I think you may know the answer but do you?

Video of the Day: Audi R8 V10 plus vs ABT TT RS-R

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="49821"] words: Bill, photos: CarWow Mat Watson has a great job...we've featured him and CarWow many times as our Video of the Day because why not? He reviews some great (and not so great cars) and he gets to drag some. In this case, he puts a baby R8 against an actual R8 but don't feel sorry for him; his TT RS is ABT tuned.

Video of the Day: AMG GT 63S vs Audi RS 7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48571"] words: Bill, video: carwow You know the drill by now with carwow...drag race, rolling drag, and brake test from 70mph. The AMG has more power, more torque, and it sounds pretty darn good. The RS 7 is down in hp, torque, is slightly lighter, and sounds muted but it's also £50,000 less than the AMG. Plus I think it looks a lot better, in my humble opinion. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48572"] How will our h...

Video of the Day: Nardo R8 Rebuild…a Labor of Love

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47120"] words: Bill, photos: Tavarish, Erik Dietz, George Achorn If you had the very last manual-transmission R8 ever built, you would probably baby it and park it in a museum-esque garage but not Erik Dietz. He bought the 2015 'Nardo R8' brand new and never looked back. It's been to 48 states, 22 countries, and has seen 150+ track days. Over those years, it racked up 143,000 miles. Garage queen it is not. Then tragedy struck...Erik's fia...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="45259"] words: Bill, photo: Lovecars Ok since yesterday's Video of the Day was a little controversial, how about a good old fashion drag race? Tiff Needell in a twin-turbo V8 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S takes on a similar powered Audi RS 6 Avant. It's a little wet but both are all wheel drive while the RS 6 Avant is slightly heavier.

Video of the Day: The Cure

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="45175"] words: Bill, video: Woyshnis Media The cure; everyone is looking for it and hoping it comes along soon but the cure for boredom can be found all around you. All you need are empty streets and a bagged R8 V10. In this haunting video, JackUltraMotive takes their R8 through Seattle. I've been to Seattle once and was surrounded by traffic. I don't live in a big city. In fact, I live in the sticks so it's fascinating to me to see the empty ...

Video of the Day: Audi C9 RS 7 Spotted on the Ring

words: Bill, video stills: Automotive Mike We've seen official photos of the S7 Sportback (TDI for the EU) and spy shots of the RS 7 testing in the snow but we haven't seen the RS 7 in action...until now thanks to Automotive Mike. There hasn't been any official word of the power plant for the new RS 7 but we wouldn't be surprise if it shared the twin turbo 4.0 V8 of the Porsche Panamera. It sure sounds like it from the video. Also noticed are the larger fender bulges...making an already wide A...
