Josh Decker from Quattroworld TV.

Has been in Taiwan filming with MTM Taiwan and their 472hp MTM Fettled Audi TT-R, and dubbed the film “The Beast”.

Powering the TTRS is a reworked 2.5 TFSI, the robust five-cylinder can reach 472 BHP and a maximum torque of around 600 Nm. A modified turbocharger gives the engine a high-powered air supply, and modified spark plugs ensure the optimal firing of the combustion chambers.

Audi RS6 Production Prototype – Spyshots (Updated Video!)

This morning at a cold and soon to be damp Nürburgring in Germany.

We have spied the new Audi RS6 in full production camouflage unlike our previous sighting of the production mule.

It is expected that the RS 6 will use the same 4.0 TFSI bi-turbo V8 as the S6, S8 and even the new Bentley Continental GT V8.

The new V8 engine is expected to deliver 500 HP and 487 lb-ft of torque throughout most of the power range.

It is rumoured that it will be offered with a new close-ratio 8-speed automatic transmission and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in around 4.3 seconds.

Detailing is pretty much well hidden apart frrom the chamfers around the front grill which is on all the 2012-2013 facelifts.

Enjoy the pics…

Audi RS6 Production Prototype

Audi RS Q3 Concept – Official

Audi has released pictures of the RS Q3 Concept, that will be revealed to the world at the China 2012 motorshow in Beijing.

The concept hints that the power will be from the same 2.5 TFSI engine as the TTRS and the RS3, and will be driven from the quattro seven-speed S tronic transmission system.

The bumper was redesigned; there are now powerful edges around the outer air intakes. They are subdivided into two segments – the inner sections have honeycomb screen inserts, while their outer sections, made of Carbon Fibre, have a smooth funnel shape assume this is for the brakes. The front spoiler is also made of Carbon Fibre. Its lower section is matt black. The entire lower section of the bumper is coated with blue clearcoat paint.

In the interior of the Audi RS Q3 concept, which gets plenty of light through a glass sunroof, cool black is the dominant color – on the roofliner, floor carpet, floor mats, leather-upholstered instrument panel and on large areas of the seat upholstery, which consists of Fine Nappa leather. Dark blue Alcantara is used as a contrasting element on the seat covers.

The styling of the engine compartment is also extremely sporty in appearance. A layered-carbon trim panel covers the area around the five-cylinder engine that sports a red valve cover, and two laterally arranged ventilation screens feed air to the engine. As is the practice in car racing, the cylinder numbers are marked on their spark plug covers. An aluminum housing holds the open sports air filter, and the filtered air tube is made of stainless steel.

The car looks less outlandish than the usual concepts so we expect a production concept to be shown at Frankfurt later on in 2012 and rumoured to be available 2nd quarter 2013.

Audi Q5 Facelift Spied Winter Testing

Here are the first uncamouflaged shots of the upcoming Audi Q5 Facelift.

Here is the Audi Q5 Facelift sporting the new hexagonal grill where the detailing has been hidden under the chrome stickers.

We are also expecting a new headlight cluster to be fitted to change the look.

Distinctive LED lights provides light during daytime and, thanks to innovative LED technology, they consume less energy and have a considerably longer working life than standard dipped lights.

The lower front fascia shows that this is a S line variant.

Powering this Q5 will be the same choice as the current models with slightly revised for fuel economy.

Rumour has it that an RS is in works and will be expected to compete with the likes of the X6M.

Audi RS1 Production Prototype Spyshots

These are the very first nearly uncamouflaged spyshots of the RS families baby RS1.

But what the prototype is sporting under the hood is the big question.

After the Audi A1 Clubsport Quattro which had the 2.5 liter along with 496bhp and a whopping 660 NM of torque, We expect this varient to house the 2.0l TFSI with expected power output of around 280bhp.

The reason why we dont think the car is equipped with the 2.5 liter is the size of the brakes and the supporting disk rotors.

The Audi RS1 will launch in 2012.
