Third-generation Audi 80 was launched in 1986. Design boss Hartmut Warkuß and his team had draped the Audi 80 B3 in a smooth and rounded body with a discreet wedge shape. This body distinguished itself with harmonious design solutions and a drag coefficient of just 0.29 – a colossal advance compared to 0.41 for the B2.

Audi presents the most powerful car in the premium compact segment. The new Audi RS 3 Sportback produces 270 kW (367 hp) and delivers 465 Nm (343.0 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft. The 2.5 TFSI in the new Audi RS 3 Sportback guarantees to thrill with immense pulling power, eager revving and its own unique acoustic experience.
The V6 biturbo in the Audi RS 5 TDI concept produces 283 kW (385 hp); from 1,250 to 2,000 rpm it transfers 750 Nm (553.2 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft. The red-line is at 5,500 rpm. The supplemental electric turbocharger provides for staggering power when starting off. An electric motor replaces the turbine wheel and accelerates the compressor wheel to over 70,000 rpm in a few hundredths of a second. The exhaust turbochargers also provide as much as 2.4 bar of relative boost pressure.
Audi presented the latest generation of its 3.0 TDI engine at the 35th International Vienna Motor Symposium. The new V6 diesel is more powerful, more efficient and cleaner than ever. Audi offers the exhaust turbocharged V6 in two versions producing 160 kW (218 hp) and 200 kW (272 hp). It features a 90‑degree cylinder bank angle and a displacement of 2,967 cc. Peak torque is as much as 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) depending on the model. Although the new 3.0 TDI is significantly more powerful than its predecessor, it is – again depending on the model – as much as 13 percent more fuel efficient.
The 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant is an unbelievably fast machine, but performance isn’t all what this car has to offer. What the test drive reveals, is how versatile the RS 6 actually is. This ultimate family performance wagon comes standard with two sportily molded rear seats. A three-person bench seat is available as an option. The new RS 6 is only available as an Avant model offering a bit boot which holds up to 1,680 liters (59.33 cu ft).
Audi just keeps pushing more power out from its 2.0 TFSI engine. In the new 2014 Audi S3, the four cylinder engine delivers whopping 221 kW (300 hp) and 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) of torque. Actually, this 2.0 TFSI in the new Audi S3 isn’t the same power source as used before, but a completely new engine which have been developed specifically for the new Audi S3.
Audi TTS is a sports car with a great performance. But it doesn’t just go fast, it also looks beautiful with many design details. It is an excellent choice when you need an elegant and stylish ride. And that is exactly the role what we wanted to give it in our TTStyle photos. Krista, who is wearing a beautiful dress designed by Katri Niskanen and jewellery from Nikama Jewellery, joined TTS making a beautiful pair. Together they look like they are ready for the evening gala.
Excluding the Audi S6 and RS 6 models, the most powerful petrol engined Audi A6 is the 3.0 TFSI. It is powered by the 3.0-litre V6 producing 228 kW (310 hp) and 440 Nm. This V6 engine is charged, but this time the T doesn’t stand for turbo. This can be a bit misleading because the 2.0 TFSI is turbocharged, but this 3.0 TFSI is actually supercharged.
Audi is celebrating its DTM success with the special edition A5 DTM Champion model. Production of the DTM model is limited to 300 units.
Audi developed the Audi nanuk quattro concept show car in collaboration with the designers from Italdesign Giugiaro. The two-seater is powered by a newly developed V10 TDI installed longitudinally in front of the rear axle. The powerful 5.0-liter diesel engine produces over 400 kW (544 hp) and delivers 1,000 Nm (737.56 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft from just 1,500 rpm. Its twin-turbo register charging unit is controlled via the Audi valvelift system (AVS). The common rail system operates at an injection pressure of 2,500 bar. A beefed-up seven-speed S tronic located behind the engine transfers the torque to a specially designed quattro drivetrain.
