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.

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.

The Hoonigan Coupe quattro Lives!

When last we left Brian Scotto and his ten years dead Coupe quattro, he'd pulled it out of its dusty resting place in the back of the Hoonigan Donut Garage and had begun to work on it.

It seems the overall plans for the car are a bit grand. Think high horsepower, a cage, and basically some sort of rally weapon... which certainly grabs our ...
