    1. Have you ever had to carry your family’s groceries in one trip after they have been on an NTUC run? Usually, it takes two or three trips (with a trolley) to haul back all of the plastic bags but every once in a while, your parents might hit you with the “It’s fine. It’s not that heavy. You can carry all of them back with your hands.”. While you try your best to balance the hefty weight on your arms, your body might feel like it’s going to burst any second. Well, that’s what happened with this truck. On Saturday (4 Dec), a cam car caught the moment when the rear tailgate of a truck suddenly broke off the vehicle on the expressway. After snapping off, the heavy tailgate cartwheeled across the road, hitting the side of a white Audi TT. While the rest of the truck was encased by a cloud of soil, the cam car immediately came to a halt after witnessing the horrific hit. The cam driver hopes that his video will assist the white Audi TT in making an insurance claim for any damages done. How did this happen? Although this was not the first time we heard of a vehicle getting hit by some random part of another vehicle, incidents like this should not be a common occurrence. Last week, a tyre fell from a different truck and hit another vehicle on the PIE. While there were no injuries reported, the scene of a flying tyre is more than enough to traumatize a driver. Even though there are no solid details on what happened in this video, netizens were quick to speculate several possibilities. The first was that the truck driver failed to maintain his vehicle correctly and did not perform the necessary checks to ensure that his truck was safe to drive. The other possibility was that the load of soil that the truck was carrying was too heavy, resulting in the tailgate's sudden breakage. While we might not know for sure how this happened, we’re glad that nobody was severely injured from this potentially deadly incident.

    2. Imagine it is the weekend, and all you want is to get some rest in your peaceful, quiet and comfortable house before the workweek starts. BUT NO. In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me. What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace. From afar or a single glance, the car's quad exhaust makes it appear as though the driver is driving an RS3, S3, or even a "Quattro tuned" Audi Sportback. If it were any of those cars, the noisy exhaust would have been understandable. But wait, here comes the twist: That "sports car" is none other than a 1-litre A3 Sportback. Putting Things Into Perspective The Audi A3 1-Litre Sportback has 114BHP and 200 Nm of torque, with 9.9 seconds for its 0 - 100km/h timing. And the fact that a noisy aftermarket exhaust is equipped to this ordinary car definitely poses as an annoyance to Bedok residents. Worse still, it pops and bangs even when its speed is <20km/h. So do you think this Audi A3 has an illegal or LTA approved exhaust? Do you think his exhaust system is "operated"? Netizens' Comments Sooner or later his car sure kena tow to the workshop. What's the point of stretching a 1-Litre engine to its limit? Damn, that escalated quickly. ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook!

      2020 Audi Q3 Sportback

      This is NOT the standard Q3, but the BMW X2 rival, a coupe style SUV. Audi is adding a compact SUV in coupé shape to its model range: the Audi Q3 Sportback. The new model combines the strong presence and versatile everyday convenience of an SUV with the sporty elegance and agile handling of a coupé. This makes it the first compact crossover of the Audi brand. Low roofline, muscular body: the design The Audi Q3 Sportback stands for strength and precision to an equal degree, and reflects this in all design details. The black grille of the octagonal Singleframe is strongly three-dimensional in design, and this makes it particularly sporty. The same applies for the trapezoidal air inlets and the expressive bumper with its flat blade. The coupé-like passenger cabin acts as a contrast to the distinctive attachments, which are painted in contrasting colors and thus emphasize the SUV character. The low roofline gives way to flat D-pillars and ends in a roof edge spoiler. As a result, the Audi Q3 Sportback appears much longer than its sister model Q3. In addition, the SUV-coupé is almost three centimeters flatter, and thus has a more muscular appearance. Above the wheels, strong contours draw attention to the quattro drive, which comes as standard with most engines. Many light and shadow effects arise on the plastic-formed rear. The low window, flanked by aero trims, and the sporty bumper, which takes up the look of the air inlets, emphasize the width of the Audi Q3 Sportback. The reversing lights contribute to this as well: they run inwards in a tapered shape, just like the flat headlights. Audi supplies the latter in three versions up to Matrix LED technology, whose adaptive high beam intelligently illuminates the road as best suits the driving situation. Sporty on and off the road: the suspension The Audi Q3 Sportback offers driving fun on various terrains. In the city, on long-haul routes, or on easy terrain - the compact crossover is a dynamic all-rounder. It features progressive steering as standard, whose gear ratio becomes increasingly direct as the steering angle increases, and the sport suspension. On request, the suspension is available with damper control, which further increases the range between dynamism and comfort. Depending on the driving situation, road condition, and personal preferences, the driver can vary the car's characteristics via the standard dynamic handling system, Audi drive select, in six profiles, including the offroad mode. In addition to the engine and transmission set-up, this system also influences the electronically adjustable shock absorbers and the steering assistance. As an option, the hill descent control can offer support: it keeps the speed selected by the driver constant on an incline greater than 6%. TFSI, TDI, S tronic, quattro: the drive For the market launch in Europe, a gasoline and a diesel engine are available for selection for the Audi Q3 Sportback. With 169 kW (230 metric hp), the 2.0 TFSI is the most powerful engine. The 2.0 TDI has an output of 110 kW (150 metric hp). Shortly after market launch, it will also be available as a manual transmission with a quattro drive. Additional engines will follow in the course of the year, including a more powerful diesel and an entry-level gasoline engine, which works together with a 48 V mild-hybrid system. During deceleration, it recovers energy; during acceleration from low speeds, it supports the engine. In real-life driving, it can save up to 0.4 l of fuel per 100 km (62.1 mi). In the top engines, the quattro all-wheel drive takes on the job of force transmission as standard. Its central component is a hydraulic multi-plate clutch on the rear axle. Its electronic management combines outstanding stability and strong traction with a high level of driving enjoyment. At the limits of performance, the quattro drive works closely together with the wheel-selective torque control, It makes handling even more dynamic and stable by means of gentle brake interventions on the inside wheels with the quattro drive and the inside front wheel with the front drive. Variable comfort: Interior and space concept The Audi Q3 Sportback is 4.50 m (14.8 ft) long, 1.84 m (6.0 ft) wide and 1.56 m (5.1 ft) high; its wheelbase measures 2.68 m (8.8 ft). This results in a large and highly variable interior. The rear seats offer space for three people. They can be moved 130 mm (5.1 in) longitudinally as standard; their backrests are divided into three sections, and their inclination can be adjusted in seven stages. The volume of the luggage compartment ranges from 530 l (18.7 cu ft) to 1,400 l (49.4 cu ft). The loading floor can be adjusted to two levels, and the rear shelf is located beneath it. As an option, Audi will deliver an electric tailgate that can also be opened and closed with a foot motion. The front seats - electrically adjustable and heated on request - offer a sporty position and a high level of comfort. Depending on the equipment, there are sport seats with contrasting stitching and colored stripes along the side panels. In addition, Alcantara surfaces on the instrument panel and the armrests emphasize the progressive design philosophy. In the dark, the optional contour/ambient lighting package sets lighting accents with its 30 selectable colors. Digital world: Displays and operation The operating and display concept proves how Audi is pushing ahead with digitalization: Even the basic equipment includes a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25-inch screen diagonal, which the driver operates using the multifunction steering wheel. In the top-of-the-line system, MMI navigation plus, the displays appear in the Audi virtual cockpit, which offers many additional functions. A touch display measuring 10.1 inches is positioned in the center of the instrument panel. When a function is selected, it emits acoustic feedback. Just like in the brand's full-size class models, it is surrounded by wide, high-gloss black trim. Together with the air-conditioning control unit located beneath it, the display is ergonomically tilted 10° towards the driver. On request, the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus is available with three selectable layouts, including a particularly dynamic view. The flat menu structure is complemented by a control unit that uses natural language and can also understand free wordings. Entering a navigation destination and the MMI search are based on free text input. The system recognizes the driver's most frequent destinations based on previous journeys, allowing it to generate suitable suggestions. When doing so, it takes into consideration statistical empirical values regarding the traffic load and time of day. Comprehensive networking: Infotainment and Audi connect Together with MMI navigation plus, the online services of Audi connect are made available on board at LTE Advanced speed via a permanently installed SIM card. This includes, for example, online traffic information and the online points of interest service, which complements route guidance with photos, opening hours, and user evaluations. Thanks to the inter-connectivity of the Audi fleet, the Q3 Sportback receives and provides information about parking spaces on the roadside, hazard areas, and speed limits, which are detected via the on-board camera and vehicle sensors. Traffic light information is a new feature among the Car-to-X services. The car receives data from a city's traffic computer, as a result of which the driver receives information about traffic light phases in the Audi virtual cockpit. This allows drivers to adjust their speed pre-emptively, which increases efficiency and improves traffic flow. This offering is initially available in individual European cities and will be gradually extended depending on the infrastructure in the urban area. Another new feature is the cloud-based Amazon voice service Alexa, which streams music and audio books and also offers access to more than 80,000 Alexa Skills. Navigation with Google Earth™ and the hybrid radio, which automatically switches between FM, DAB and online streaming depending on the reception conditions, also form part of the Audi connect navigation & infotainment plus package. The voice control system uses the detailed knowledge in the cloud to answer the driver's questions and commands. The free myAudi App and the Audi smartphone interface ensure interconnectivity between the car and smartphone. This integrates Android and iOS cell phones into the on-board infotainment system. The content of the smartphone is shown in the MMI display via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and no cables are required if the top infotainment system is used with an iPhone. The Audi phone box and the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with virtual 3D sound round off this comprehensive offer. Outstanding in any situation: the assist systems In the Audi Q3 Sportback, four standard systems are used for safety. These include the lane departure warning and the lane change warning. While the former helps the driver to remain in the lane, the latter points out critical situations when changing lanes, such as if there is a vehicle in the blind spot. The series scope in Germany also includes Audi pre sense front. If a head-on collision is imminent, it outputs a visual, acoustic, and haptic warning to the driver. In an emergency, it causes full braking and initiates the Audi pre sense basic safety measures. This involves tightening the front seat belts, closing the windows and the optional sliding roof, and activating the hazard warning lights. The adaptive cruise assist is a highlight of the optional systems. It takes the burden off the driver during longitudinal and lateral guidance. Ultra-modern systems such as the 360 degree cameras offer assistance with parking and maneuvering. They show the direct surroundings of the SUV coupé on the MMI display, and the driver can choose from several perspectives. The park assist automatically guides the car into and out of parking spaces. If, for example, the driver wants to back out of an entrance, the rear cross traffic assist warns about approaching vehicles that the system classifies as critical. Available commercially from fall onwards: Market launch and edition model Delivery of the Audi Q3 Sportback in Europe will start in the fall 2019. In Germany, the price for the 35 TDI S tronic is €40,200, while the 45 TFSI quattro S tronic is available from a starting price of €46,200. An exclusive edition model in two designs accompanies the market launch, Depending on their paint finishes, they are called "edition one dew silver" and "edition one mythos black." In both models, the exterior is based on the S line and the black styling package. Dark decorative panels in the matrix LED headlights and 20-inch wheels make for an even sportier look. The interior features a silver edition model with the noble interior design selection and bright colors, while the black model is based on the dark interior S line, supplemented by blue Alcantara areas on the instrument panel and the armrests in the doors.

    5. S’pore Man’s Audi Becomes Expensive Whiteboard After Kids Write ‘I Love Papa’ On It Now it's just some Audi that he used to know. https://mustsharenews.com/audi-expensive-whiteboard/ Man Showcases New Audi ‘Paint Job’ After Kids Write & Draw On It Like An Expensive Whiteboard A parent’s love for their child is unrivalled but it can definitely be a challenge to have kids at times. Many kids love to draw, but sometimes their zealous love of art can lead to them drawing on some inappropriate places. On Sunday (14 Nov), a man shared a TikTok video of how his kids decided to use his white Audi as an expensive whiteboard, writing and drawing on it. One of the messages written on the car was ‘I love Papa’, prompting netizens to joke that it’ll be hard for the man to stay mad at his children. Children treat Audi as expensive whiteboard Children love to express themselves by drawing and scribbling around. But this can sometimes get out of hand as the man found out when his kids left him a ‘masterpiece’ by doodling on his luxury white Audi car. In the video showcasing his newly decorated car, there were drawings of what appears to be My Little Pony characters on the car bonnet. We can’t miss what appears to be a doodled Audi logo as well, which oozes big “Audi at home” energy. Just beside it, his children left him an adorable heartfelt message that said, “I <3 Papa”. It was even embellished with lots of hearts and ‘xoxo’, symbolising hugs and kisses. Not leaving out any part of the car, just above the wheel, his kids also drew several patterns in black and purple. Children drew family portrait including car On the side, his children appeared to have drawn a family portrait, complete with a house and funnily — a car. We assume the car represents the Audi since it’s depicted with the same hood. That was not all. Near the back of the car were another drawing of cars, a flower, a house, and some clouds. His children then left a nice finishing touch by writing ‘Teo Family’ to sign off. A quick look through the man’s TikTok account reveals that he is a car enthusiast, frequently showcasing various luxury cars in his videos. In this particular video, the man had hilariously written the caption, “What happens when you have kids”. Netizens think car decoration is wholesome The man’s video had since gone viral, garnering almost 600,000 views and 65,000 likes at the time of writing. Many netizens found his children’s heartfelt scribbles funny yet wholesome. Some said that the ‘custom paint job’ actually looked good and suggested that he kept it that way. Others joked that with how sweet his children were being through their drawings, scolding them will be a difficult task. Another netizen said his children really treated his white Audi like an expensive whiteboard, filling it with scribbles and drawings. A priceless paint job We can’t imagine how the man reacted to having his beloved Audi redecorated for him against his will. But as most parents can relate, children can often be infuriatingly adorable with their playful antics. One thing’s for sure — this paint job is a priceless one.

      I love Audi and my 2 cents worth

      I love Audi! But am disappointed with the way they are approaching the market in terms of sales of their new cars. Last month I headed to their showroom to test drive their A5 SB, love the way the car looks, the luxurious feel of the interior, I was quite sold on it before I even took it for a test drive. However, the car felt okay only with the FWD, not as responsive as another German competitor though, the handling didn’t feel as good too when I compared the two, seems slightly underpowered which I believe had to do with the VES policy thus causing the suppressed tuning of the engine. Then we talked numbers and my eyes grew larger as I was pleasantly surprised with the high OT offer until we spoke about the add-ons which included having to purchase a package for servicing but what was a deal breaker was that I found out the car does not include front collision prevention system and some other stuff which I feel should be quite standard these days especially for $220K+ car. Almost everything can be included as an option which when calculated in, it is higher than the competition. I guess it’s dangle the carrot with lower list price first and let the customer decide (or got shocked) what they want to include. No wonder why their showroom is so much more quiet as compared to their 2 newest German competitors.

      2016 Audi A4 sedan & avant

      Sedan Avant Body shape looks pretty much indifferent But some cool tech inside
    8. The German manufacturer has announced it's to work with Block on "exclusive joint projects in the field of electric mobility" It’s been all change for Ken Block this year. First off, he ditched his Ford partnership that had been running since 2010, going back to his old chums at Subaru. And apparently, one (no doubt lucrative) manufacturer contract wasn’t enough for the DC Shoe co-founder turned tyre torturer, as he’s just joined forces with Audi. Before you get excited about Ken’s next big video featuring a 1000bhp Sport quattro warbling away and spitting flames, we should let you know that the tie-up is solely focused on electric stuff. In the press release’s words, the plan is for Block and Audi to team up for “exclusive joint projects in the field of electric mobility.” And that’s as much detail as we get for now. As far as we know, none of this affects Block’s ARA (American Rally Association) campaign with Subaru, and we should imagine Gymkhana videos will continue to feature vehicles from the Japanese manufacturer. As a reminder, last time out Block handed over the Gymkhana reins to Travis Pastrana, who thrashed around his hometown of Annapolis in a mad, carbon fibre-bodied Subaru WRX STI with 850bhp. Block will, as far as we know, be back for Gymkhana 12, and probably not in an electric Audi. He might, however, have a crack at the Dakar Rally. Audi will take on the event with its new RS Q E-Tron (below), and Block would be a headline-grabbing driver to stick behind the wheel. He’s also a dab hand at that kind of driving, having set the third fastest time during his run on the final stage of the event last year in the Extreme E Odyssey 21 prototype. In 2021 he also won the first ever Projekt E rallycross series in Sweden. Although the partnership is about all things electric, Audi did kindly let Block loose in the legendary Audi Sport quattro S1 and a DTM V8 quattro, plus the electric E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo and an RS E-Tron GT. He was (inevitably) very complimentary about the E-Tron GT, saying that “The design is exquisite with great attention to detail and a perfect finish”. He added, “The driving experience is amazing: the car is incredibly fast and handles very well. The centre of gravity is very low so you can change direction quickly.” Audi Sport managing director Julius Seebach meanwhile had this to say about the new recruit: “Electrification is a game-changer, just like quattro drive once was. With Ken Block, we’ve got exciting things in store that go perfectly with our strategy.”

      Audi tuning by PA

      Hi all, This may already be discussed, and if so, feel free to direct me to the topic. I can't seem to find it in the forums. For Audi cars, understand PA does tuning. Heard it is mtm stage 1 or something. Am I right? Any bros did it for their cars and are there any cons or things to take note?
    10. An Audi A3 driver makes a terrible decision in the middle of the SLE expressway and gets shamed for it. That's right guys, you read the video title correctly. In the video, a cam car cruises down the first lane of the expressway when suddenly, the grey Toyota Vios in front of him abruptly brakes. This causes the cam car to hit his own brakes as well to avoid rear-ending the Vios. As expected, the sudden braking of both vehicles leads to a motorcyclist almost hitting the grey Vios as he performs a lane split. Puzzled over the sudden braking, the cam car eventually makes it further down the expressway, only to find a stationary red Audi A3 in the middle of the first lane. The owner can be seen climbing over the divider to retrieve something of his before running back to his precious car. This causes the cam car driver to let out an audible exclamation of "Walao eh!", which voices his disapproval at the Audi driver's inconsiderate actions. Why did the Audi driver stop his car in Lane 1? The A3 driver stopped his car in the middle of the first lane to retrieve this: Yep, that's right - a mirror cover. For those who are unfamiliar with these, a mirror cover covers the back and over of a car's side view mirrors. Its purpose is to protect the mirrors from dirt and debris coming up off the road, as well as to contribute to its aesthetic features. While it is rare for mirror covers to suddenly fly off while you're driving, it's possible for it to happen when one or more of the connection points on the cover is bent or broken. Although it is alarming to have your side mirror covers come off, the part is usually replaceable at a dealer's workshop. This then begs the question: Was it worth it to jam up traffic just to retrieve a broken mirror cover? Our netizens beg to disagree. Netizens' reactions I agree! The benefit of retrieving a possibly broken mirror cover does not outweigh the costs of potentially causing a serious accident. Yep, a quick search on Google shows that mirror covers cost between $20 - $50, with the pricier ones being a bit fancier. Unless you're telling me that the Audi driver's mirror covers are encased in 24k gold and diamonds, I do not see the need to stop his vehicle in the middle of the fastest lane in the expressway just to retrieve it. -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

      2019 2nd Generation Audi Q3

      Will be unveiled officially on 25 July in Europe. The latest gen Q3 look less feminine to me, and just like a smaller brother of Q5, Q7...
    12. The 2021 Audi SQ5 combines luxury and performance in a jack-of-all-trades package. Quattro all-wheel drive, a turbocharged V6 engine, and plenty of tech make the Audi SQ5 a do-it-all option for luxury shoppers. It's not without faults, but Forrest Jones' SQ5 loaner certainly made an impression. Is this the best luxury compact SUV on the market? I think is a cleverly packed feature car for bankers and pilot. (especially those flying for SQ) 🤣
    13. Karma hits a reckless Audi A5 driver in the form of a car crash after causing a long list of various traffic infringements over the course of 5 days. Timeline Here's an official timeline of all of the incidents featured in the video compilation above. 14th September We start off with the driver performing a reckless lane change along the expressway on the 14th. The video shows the Audi zooming in from the left of the camcar, as the driver speeds up and places himself in the middle lane despite the car's presence. 17th September The second incident features the same Audi performing another reckless lane change a few days later. Like the first time, the car zooms in from the motorcyclist's right and dangerously tailgates the car in front of it. The motorcyclist shakes his head in disbelief as the driver quickly drifts into the middle lane. 18th September On the day of the crash, the Audi driver performs a series of reckless driving stunts a few hours before. At 1:05 p.m., the car is seen parked at the side of the road in front of a second vehicle after it had caused an accident. A few minutes later, the driver performs a reckless lane change. The car almost hits the other drivers on the road as it quickly swerves from left to right and back. Finally, at 5:19 p.m., the Audi performs another reckless lane change on the expressway as it zooms past a silver car in the right lane. The car suddenly switches into the middle lane, cutting in front of a large white bus before quickly switching back to the right. However, the A5 driver fails to notice that there is already a parked car in the right lane from an earlier accident. The driver causes a chain collision as he suddenly slows down, hitting the parked car in front of him and causing the silver car behind him to crash as well. Netizens' reactions Honestly, the Audi A5 driver got what he deserved. This just shows that no matter how great your car is, a reckless driver is never a safe driver. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

      2021 AUDI S8 - THE KING IS BACK!

      The 5th generation of the Audi S8 is here. Codenamed D5, the king of mixing luxury with performance, is back. Engine, Transmission, and Performance The S8's sole engine choice is a potent one: a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine making 563 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard, and the transmission is an eight-speed automatic. Audi claims a top speed of 155 mph, and there are fuel-saving systems, too, including cylinder deactivation and a mild-hybrid setup with a small electric motor and battery. At our test track, the S8 blasted to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. An active suspension system can control each wheel individually to improve ride quality, and it is tuned differently than that of the standard A8, promising improved cornering prowess thanks to reduced body roll. Audi also includes equipment such as a torque-vectoring rear differential and rear-wheel steering to increase agility; powerful carbon-ceramic brakes are optional.

      2015 2nd Generation Audi Q7

      Weird that I never saw this before... a new gen Audi Q7 for 2015. http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/News/Search-Results/First-Official-Pictures/Audi-Q7-2015-unveiled-smaller-lighter-and-more-estate-like/ They say svelte... but that front grill
    17. At the first glance, I can't tell that it is a all new generation... 50 TDI Quattro S Line
    18. There’s nothing quite like the exhilarating performance abilities that Audi’s RS range offers, and they’re now all here in Singapore – take your pick. There’s a lot to love about the RS range from Audi. They all offer tremendous performance credentials, every day practicality and usability, along with a dynamic driving experience unlike any other. They’re all great cars. But the best part? All the new RS models available as of today are now available in Singapore. All of them. That’s quite a big deal. Each Audi RS model has its own set of special qualities that make them great. And this run down will tell you why all of us love them so much. RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback There is nothing quite like the RS Q3. You can have it in your preferred bodystyle – as an SUV or Sportback - but in its heart lies an engine unlike any other. The 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine is one that harks back to Audi’s rally days. Both the RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback make 394bhp and 480Nm of torque. It is no slouch. Those numbers are fast car numbers. As thrilling as speed is, what charms the most about the RS Q3 is the way it doles all that power down. There is nothing like the sonorous soundtrack from a five-cylinder. And if you’re looking for a silhouette that’s a little more sensual, there’s the RS Q3 Sportback, too. And to put that either in calm and understated SUV body, or in a striking and sensous silhouette like the Sportback – whatever your choice, there really is nothing quite as thrilling like it in its class. RS 4 Avant The thing about Audis is how approachable they are. They fit in almost any lifestyle, with more practical options, like an Avant if you need more loading space. Avant is Audi speak for a station wagon. And you can only get the new RS 4 exclusively as one. In its performance too it is approachable. A 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 sends 444bhp and 600Nm of torque to all four wheels. You are guaranteed to win traffic light races, but it is a car that won’t bite you in sticky situations when you’re at your own personal limits of fast road driving. And not to forget the surprise on every other driver’s face when they see an Audi station wagon moving away at rapid speed. RS 5 Sportback and RS 5 Coupe But not everyone wants a station wagon. The sedan is the traditional choice. But what’s the point of being traditional if you have 444bhp and 600Nm of mind numbing torque? The RS 5 Sportback, then, will be your best bet. You get the same firepower, but in a suit that’s a little more tailored. In this case, a sloping, coupe-like four-door. Just like the RS 4 it has been updated with a stronger looking front, along with various infotainment and feature updates that add to the RS driving experience, such as two definable performance driving modes, along with an optional sports exhaust. And of course, if you prefer, you can go for the full two-door lifestyle with the RS 5 Coupe, too. RS 6 Avant Who can forget the RS 6 Avant? This writer for sure has not. It is a powerhouse of speed. And everyone gets to enjoy it, with luggage in tow, too. That’s right, this is another fast station wagon from the Audi RS stable. You can get the RS 6 in this generation only as an Avant. And that makes it a little more special. And power is immense. So are the numbers. 591bhp. 800Nm. If that doesn’t surprise you, this is a four-wheel drive station wagon that’ll hit 100km/h in 3.6 seconds, and top out at 305km/h without its speed governor, or if you have no government to catch you doing it. In every gear, and at any speed, the RS 6 always pulls strongly. But of course, you still can turn down the fun and it becomes your regular A6 if you ever need it. RS 7 Sportback Again, there’s only so much you can do with almost 600bhp and 800Nm if you can’t flaunt it just a little bit, right? For the first time ever in Singapore, the RS 7 Sportback is here. This is no sensuous and soft four-door coupe. This is a muscular and aggressive one – wider by some 40mm than the regular A7. And putting that firepower together with these good looks certainly sounds like a good idea. There’s some RS-specific bits that the RS 7 Sportback benefits from, such as its dynamic OLED taillights that offer a distinct RS light show whenever you lock or unlock the doors. Yes, the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 heart lies in the RS 7 Sportback as it does in the RS6. So expect the same brutal abilities of it, and then some. RS Q8 Audi RS isn’t backing down with its offerings, though. Everyone loves an SUV today. What about a fast, and I mean very, very fast SUV? Even better. You cannot deny the Audi Q8’s good looks. It is tremendous, and offers a lot of road presence without being too over the top. And that tremendous, twin-turbo V8 powerplant powering the RS 6 and RS 7 Sportback? You’ll find it in the RS Q8, too. This is an SUV that only takes 0.2-seconds lesser than the RS 7 Sportback to complete the century sprint. But a clumbersone SUV it is not around corners. It is as sharp a tool as the RS Q3. It is no surprise, then, that the RS Q8 is the current lap record holder for a production SUV around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. R8 Spyder and R8 Coupe Here is a sports car that you never lose any practicality for. It is the Audi R8, and it is all updated for 2021. Once available with a quattro all-wheel drive system, you can now have the R8 in rear-wheel drive. You see, this is a car that still appeals to the true car enthusiast. And yet, offers the flamboyance of a low slung two-door coupe that most would lust over. Sitting mid-way in the car is a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 that sings, making 532bhp to the rear wheels. But the familiarity of the R8, just like all Audis, offers it that ability for many to drive a super car every day, for work and leisure, without compromise. Be it the R8 Spyder or the Coupe that you choose, this is one car that lets yourself and others around you experience the best when it comes to motoring excellence. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    20. I guess money can't buy proper road etiquette, can it? On 5th May 2021, a short video was posted on Facebook of an Audi A8 driver driving recklessly along Lower Delta Road. It's so bad that I even experienced some serious second-hand embarrassment from watching it. For those of you who cannot stomach the video, I am going to provide a play-by-play description of the incident below. So, we start off with the camcar driver, who is innocently drives along the road and slows down when approaching a red light at a traffic junction. He stops behind a black Audi A8, which continues to inch forward past the white line with total disregard to the red light. The driver continues to try his luck and even attempts to turn right while there's traffic coming from both sides on the adjacent road. As if realising that there's no way the universe will let it turn right, the Audi suddenly reverses and almost hits the camcar. Once the lights turn green, the Audi wastes no time zooming ahead without stopping at the right turn pocket. The driver positions the Audi dangerously near oncoming vehicles as if asking for an accident to happen. The Audi edged so far into the lane with oncoming traffic that it even made a silver vehicle stop dead in its tracks to avoid a collision. To carry on forward, the silver car had to manoeuvre itself around the Audi in an awkward fashion. If you thought that was all, think again. There's more! When the Audi driver saw an empty pocket of space, it sped off to complete the right turn, but there were two oncoming vehicles that could have crashed into the Audi if they had gone any faster. Netizens quickly took to the comments to voice their opinions (with some speculating that the Audi driver is either drunk, high or does not have a driving license): Simplified translation: 'You have to wait for death if you want to reincarnate, what's the rush?' What do you guys think of this road menace?

    22. Based on the Porsche Taycan, the Audi has a character all its own (and it might even be more fun). At the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show (a time when we could all still gather around a car and discuss it clearly without masks), Audi unveiled an EV prototype that was a huge success. The name? The Audi E-Tron GT Concept. After two-plus years of waiting, the automaker is ready to debut the production-ready 2022 Audi E-Tron GT, arriving on our roads with only minor alterations from its concept predecessor. A few weeks after its official presentation, we were able to take the wheel of the model for two short hours in Reims, France, for a very preliminary "first taste," stoking our appetites for a more complete drive in the coming weeks. This was an opportunity to get a closer look at the famous platform-mate of the Porsche Taycan and to check whether the E-Tron GT upholds Audi's claim that it is indeed a different animal than its cousin from Stuttgart. Love At First Sight? Instantly, the Audi E-Tron GT wows onlookers with its spectacular design and unusual details. Although it looks much more imposing than the Taycan 4S, the two actually share the same footprint, with an identical 114.2-inch wheelbase and only marginal length and width differences – the Taycan 4S spans 195.4 inches long and 84.4 inches wide, while the Euro-spec E-Tron is up inch between the bumpers and 0.6-inch between the mirrors. But while Porsche comparisons are inevitable, it also must be said that the E-Tron is also far more dynamic-looking than the similarly sized S7 Sportback, thanks to a 0.2-inch-lower roofline and some incremental length and width increases. Customers in this type of segment are all but guaranteed to respond positively to the E-Tron GT's stance, and the wind will love it too, thanks to a drag coefficient of 0.24 (slightly up on the smoother Taycan's 0.22). Like the exterior, the cabin is no mere copy-paste of the Porsche EV, but a bona fide Audi interior. While the Taycan features up to four interior screens, the E-Tron GT makes do with two – a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch infotainment system. For our part, we find it more ergonomic, thanks in particular to the presence of physical buttons for certain shortcuts. On the other hand, as in the Taycan, we still feel a bit overwhelmed, and our tester wasn't even equipped with the optional MMI Touch secondary center display. The 2022 Audi E-Tron GT also isn't the best in terms of interior roominess, with fairly cramped rear seats. And thanks to a fairly prominent door sill (a function of the floor-mounted batteries), you'll have to contort yourself to get in. At the very least, luggage space shouldn't be an issue. This European-market E-Tron GT features a 405-liter cargo area under the rear hatch and an 81-liter frunk – that converts to 14.3 cubic feet and 2.9 cubic feet respectively, though those numbers don't necessarily correspond to official US-market measuring standards. The 2022 Audi E-Tron GT, By The Numbers This sporty (but not too sporty, since there's an RS version coming) EV has two electric motors; one mounted on the front axle makes 235 horsepower on its own, while the rear motor produces 429. Between the two, the E-Tron GT reins in 469 ponies, with a total of 464 pound-feet as well. Also, an occasional-use "overboost" function frees up 522 hp and 472 lb-ft, useful for quick passes or stoplight getaways. Audi claims a 60-mile-per-hour sprint of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 152 mph. Like the Taycan but unlike some other EVs, the E-Tron GT has a two-speed gearbox, allowing for faster response across a wider speed range. What's more, a rear differential lock allows for better grip when exiting corners or encountering bad weather. Notably, the Audi's powertrain corresponds more closely to that of the Taycan 4S with Performance Battery Plus, eclipsing both the standard Taycan 4S and the base Taycan in terms of power and speed. Porsche won't release its grip on flagship performance though; both the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S outpace the forthcoming Audi RS E-Tron GT. As far as charging is concerned, Audi claims that taking the battery from 5 percent to 80 percent will take 22.5 minutes with a maximum charging power of 270 kW. It will take about nine hours on a standard home charging outlet to go from 0 to 100 percent. On the battery side, we have an 800-volt system, not a 400-volt system, which allows for a more consistent distribution of performance. Comprised of 33 separate modules with 12 cells each, the battery contains 396 cells for a total capacity of 93.4 kilowatt-hours. Each module has an internal control unit to manage voltage and temperature. Integrated into the cooling circuit of the car via a heat pump, the battery can be cooled or heated to be perpetually within an ideal temperature window, minimizing range degradation and prolonging battery life. Is It Really An Audi? Audi claims an EPA-rated range of 238 miles, and fortunately, after two hours of driving and one hour of photography, we didn't come close to depleting the battery. Of course, such a short drive cycle isn't enough to really evaluate the E-Tron GT's range claims (we'll need much more time for that), so we chose to spend most of our time concentrating on the EV's dynamics and driving behavior. From the very first spin, we expected the E-Tron to be a perfect copy of Porsche's Taycan, which would have been a great outcome for the firm with four rings. But we should have listened to the company representatives when they said that the Audi takes Porsche's underpinnings, but applies a different philosophy to them. You can feel within the first few blocks that, true to its name, the E-Tron is more of a GT car, with a softer suspension and more subtly tuned steering. That's not enough to make it a "soft" car, though – quite the opposite, with 469 hp to play with, the Audi is plenty fast. But while the Taycan absolutely crushes you against your seat, the E-Tron GT is a bit more docile, with less violent acceleration. That doesn't stop it from offering the driver a dynamic experience, and it's still very fun to drive. The two-speed gearing is good, and dynamic behavior is better. Thanks to some weather during our test drive, the road was particularly greasy. We weren't concerned, because if the E-Tron GT was as grounded as a Taycan, only the laws of physics could stop our enthusiasm. The tires play a key role here too, obviously. With Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber, our Audi E-Tron GT Quattro could quickly turn into a dancer, especially during overly ambitious acceleration at the exit of a curve that could result in some delightful, controllable oversteer. Not since the mid-engined R8 RWD has an Audi felt so sporty and playful. Even more surprising, the E-Tron GT is particularly fun on twisty roads, more so than a base Porsche Taycan, which will prefer to play the efficiency card. The Audi's steering is less incisive and its suspension is softer, but the result is, possibly paradoxically, more frisky and enjoyable. And all this without breaking your lumbar vertebrae at the slightest bump. That may be the mark of a true GT car – comfortable over long distances, without sacrificing the joy of making good time over a twisty, undulating road. Of course, it's hard to argue with the laws of physics too much when piloting more than 5,000 pounds of European-market EV around. Audi does its best to defeat Newton, employing rear-axle steering, an Audi Sport setting for the rear differential, and E-Quattro all-wheel drive that can power the car in rear-drive-only mode. But all that mass translates into a lot of inertia, so anticipating the road ahead is crucial. Our 2,290-kilogram (5,048-pound) test car can quickly take you where you don't want to go if you get overly ambitious. Especially since the E-Tron's braking is not what delighted us most. While the Audi RS E-Tron GT comes standard with tungsten carbide–treated brakes with 16.3-inch rotors and 10-piston calipers at the front (brakes that were introduced at Porsche some time ago), our standard Quattro version had 14.1-inch steel brake discs and six-piston calipers. Those seemingly massive brakes feel slightly undersized for such a heavy car (for sporting use, at least). Not to be catastrophic, they were adequate for most situations. Another grievance, inherent in virtually all electric cars, is the transition from regenerative braking to friction braking. The "conventional" braking system is only called upon beyond a deceleration of more than 0.39 g. This is a very complex operation, so as a result, little happens at the beginning of the pedal stroke until hydraulic braking comes into action and suddenly grips the discs. At first, it's very surprising behavior, and the lack of progressiveness hinders dynamic driving. Counting Pennies Pricing for the US-market 2022 Audi E-Tron GT hasn't been completely sussed out just yet, but we know that the base Quattro will start at $99,900 plus $1,095 for destination. The France-spec car we drove was very well equipped, with a 100,500-euro starting price bolstered by a 5,400-euro Dynamic package (Quattro differential on the rear axle, steerable rear wheels, and adaptive air suspension) and 4,600-euro carbon fiber roof – which might not be essential, since the standard E-Tron GT's center of gravity is already lower than that of the R8 supercar. Brake-wise, those aforementioned tungsten-coated discs cost an additional 4,150 euros, and they're much more suitable for dynamic use. And if steel really doesn't suit you, Audi still offers ceramic brakes as an option at 10,500 euros, but they make more sense on the high-performance RS E-Tron GT than on the less aggressive Quattro model. If you really want maximum Audi EV performance, you'll have to get in line for that RS model. With a starting price of $139,900 in the US, the RS E-Tron GT gets 590 hp (or 637 hp on overboost) and 612 lb-ft, good for a 60-mph sprint of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The RS also comes standard with a carbon fiber roof, rear-axle steering, and the sport differential, making it an easier sell to those who might option the standard Quattro with those features. The E-Tron GT is built at Audi's Böllinger Höfe plant in Neckarsulm, Germany – the same facility as the R8. The first customer deliveries of the Audi EV, including the higher-performance RS version, will commence this summer in the US. Specific option pricing and packaging will be revealed closer to that nebulous on-sale date, but Audi will offer the E-Tron in $99,900 Premium Plus and $107,100 Prestige forms, with the RS E-Tron sold in a single top-dog trim level. Those prices compare favorably to the Porsche EVs: the $79,900 Taycan rear-drive, $103,800 Taycan 4S, $109,370 Taycan 4S with Performance Battery Plus, $150,900 Taycan Turbo, and $185,000 Taycan Turbo S.

      Reckless Audi A4 driver hits FoodPanda rider

      An Audi A4 was seen recklessly cutting 2 lanes along Upper Bukit Timah Road on Wednesday (June 23), which resulted in the vehicle hitting a FoodPanda rider. According to the video, the black Audi A4 was cruising on the right of the camcar when it suddenly swerved towards the left, almost hitting a white Toyota van in the middle of the road. Upon collision, the FoodPanda rider and his motorcycle flew for a short distance before landing in front of a petrol station. It has been speculated by the video's description that the driver of the Audi A4 might have wanted to turn left but failed to form up in time, which resulted in the sudden swerve towards the left. Netizens' reactions Many netizens were upset with the reckless driving behaviour of the Audi A4, which could have prevented the accident if the driver had properly planned his route and was more aware of his surroundings. While we are unsure of the FoodPanda rider's condition at the moment, we wish him a speedy recovery and hope that all drivers will pay more attention when they're on the roads. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    24. After 2 years of rumors and several CGIs, it is finally coming... Audi's new Q5 Sportback has been spotted ahead of its reveal later this year. This is the second SUV Sportback from Audi, the first being the Q3 Sportback, which was launched last year. When attached to an SUV, the Sportback name indicates a coupe-like roofline ending in a liftback, as opposed to the more upright tailgates traditionally found on SUVs. At the front, Audi has ditched the headlights of the standard Q5 in favor of ones more akin to those from the Q3 Sportback. This prototype also features a blacked-out front grille with a chrome surround as well as some dashes of silver around the edges of the front air intakes. As the Sportback in its name implies, Audi has overhauled the shape of the vehicle’s roof to give it that Coupe-like appearance. There is no camouflage per say at the rear but there is some tape over the taillights, hiding parts of their design. With that being said, it is clear that they too have been altered from the taillights of the normal Q5.
    25. Hi guys, I was about to commit a second hand about 2 years old A6 1.8 TFSI Ultra Edition. What is the pros and cons of this car? Tried searching but to no avail. Seems like there not much mentioned. Also, do you guys know how to differentiate the Matrix headlight? Heard that this is a very expensive option. Any comments and advises are welcome. Many thanks in advance.
