Video of the Day: On Board with The Stig and the Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54371"] words: Bill, video: Top Gear In yesterday's Video of the Day, we watched Jay Leno drive an Audi RS 6 Avant rather sedately through the streets. While it's always great to see an RS 6 Avant, Jay didn't exactly thrill us. Enter The Stig...remember him? He takes us on a Stig's eye view of the famous Top Gear track and he doesn't disappoint. Take a nostalgia trip across the line as you watch the video below. Enjoy and don't forget to tu...

Video of the Day: Audi 80 Twin-Turbo V8 vs Lamborghini Gallardo…in Rallycross

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54342"] words: Bill, video: TH-Motorsport What is one of the last things you would think you'd see at a rallycross? Audi aplenty but how about a Lamborghini? A Gallardo to be exact. There is no description to this YouTube video except for the 80 being a twin-turbo V8. It readily handles the AWD Gallardo. You have to give it the Lambo driver for having fun with his Gallardo...I mean if you could, wouldn't you? Enjoy the video below. [embe...

Video of the Day: Jay Leno Compares the Audi RS 6 Avant to the 1939 Chevy Master Deluxe Station Wagon

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54290"] words: Bill, video: Audrain Automobile Museum Ok so it not a direct comparison; no drag race, no rolling race, etc. In fact, it's not much of a comparison between two vehicles but rather a highlight of what the Audi RS 6 Avant is. Jay Leno and Donald Osborne take a ride in this Nogaro Blue Tribute edition and talk wagons. What's a better conversation than wagons? Ride along with Jay and Donald in the video below.

Video of the Day: Underground Racing World Record 7 Second Audi R8

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54162"] words: Bill, video: Underground Racing Wow...I've never seen an R8 do a wheelie before and unless you've seen this video, I'm going to reckon you haven't either. It took me longer to type that out than it did for Underground Racing's twin-turbo Audi R8 V10 to make it down the strip: 7.659 seconds at 196.76mph. Strap in and hang on as you watch the video below and prepare to say 'Wow'. [embed]https://youtu.be/ShHAO0ET3qU[/embed]

Video of the Day: Battle of the Executive Muscle Cars – Bentley Flying Spur W12 vs Audi S8 Twin-Turbo V8

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="53362"] words: Bill, video: carwow It's not often you see full size sedans, well at least full size luxury super sedans, go up against each other in a drag race. Mat does just that in this latest video from carwow. The Flying Spur with the huge 635hp W12 lines up against its platform mate, the S8 with the 571 twin-turbo V8. Doesn't sound like a fair fight but the Bentley weighs in at 5,373lbs versus 4,916 for the S8; a difference of 457 pou...

Video of the Day: Lexus LFA vs Audi R8 V10 Spyder Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52111"] words: Bill, video: Lovecars I remember when the Lexus LFA came onto the scene. On the forums (admittedly a Volkswagen/Audi forum), it was derided by most but loved by some. But who really couldn't at least like a V10 beast? Well...I think most of us here would love another V10 beast instead. An Audi R8 V10 Spyder is lined up against the LFA and in this drag race between the Banana and the Grape, who do you think will win? Watch b...

Video of the Day: Audi RS 6 Avant vs Lamborghini Urus Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48135"] words: Bill, photos: Archie Hamilton Racing In today's video, Archie climbs into an Audi RS 6 Avant while his mate gets the Lamborghini Urus. Easy peasy win right? While both are powered by the twin-turbo 4L V8, the Lambo has 641hp/626lb-ft while the RS 6 makes do with 591hp/591lb-ft. However, the Urus weighs in at 4,844lbs; the RS 6 weighs 4,575lb...and sits lower. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48136"] The...

Video of the Day: CarWow- R8 vs R8 vs R8 vs R8…No Losers Here

words: Bill, video: CarWow Oh to be Mat Watson from CarWow. We've featured him on several of our Video of the Day like this one, this one, and this one. Mat follows a familiar format to these videos: drag race, rolling drag race, and brake test. Most of the time, we feature the ones involving Audi versus the world. Today, it's different...a sibling brawl. What Mat has assembled here a lineup of R8s - MKI V8, MkI V10 GT Spyder, MKI V10 LMX, and a MKII V10. He and his cohorts pit them agains...

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...
