History of the Audi 5 Cylinder Engine Video

I must admit I am a fan of the Audi 90 Quattro and its historic prowess, and Audi of America have fetched us this excellent insight.

The film tells the story of the legendary longitudinally mounted Audi 5-cylinder racing engine used in the IMSA/GTO circuit in 1989 at Sears Point.

Audi driver Hans-Joachim Stuck focuses on the moment when this fire-breathing, aggressive five cylinder, with its characteristic wasteplate turbo chatter in mid shift, ushered the Audi team to victory.

The piece then links the motor sports moment of truth to a story of modern-day design and engine innovation in the 5 cylinder lurking beneath the hood of the TT RS and unavailable in the standard TT. quattro GmbH engineer Michael Ganz brings to life the visual technological advancements of the 5 cylinder engine at the quattro GmbH engine test bed, and through specific dynamic track footage of the TT RS.

Surprisingly omitted is any reference to the Audi RS3 which us Europeans have access to.

Which Car do you prefer over stateside the TTRS or the Audi RS3?

Audi TT Spotted Sporting Bentley Alloys

Here is a Audi TT coupe sporting some extreme alloys from the Bentley Continental, This 2.0l TFSI powered TT was also sat only 40mm from the floor.

Due to the lack of damage from its dropped height we suspect that an HLS System is installed, where hydraulics lift and lower the car.

I think personally the extra money to fit this kit would have been spent by buying the TTS but who am I????

MERCEDES MAKES ‘WORLD’S FASTEST 3D FILM’

The Isle of Man TT, David Coulthard and a Mercedes SLS AMG make the world’s fastest 3d Film.

The film was shot on the Isle of Man, where they shut the Mountain Road which is part of the iconic TT road circuit, to allow ex-F1 driver and F1 commentator David Coulthard to put the Mercedes SLS AMG through its paces, and reach 162mph along the way.

The second car to track and film the Coultard led drive was a second SLS AMD driven by Robbie Head.

So if you happen to be around a 3d public house it will be shown on “SKY” tv’s pub channel.
