Audi R8 GT – La Jolla, California

November 2nd, 2012 by Stu

The first thing that came to my mind when this lightweight Audi R8 GT Coupe pulled into the car wash didn’t revolve around beauty or speed or exclusivity [333 exist worldwide]. Not even the $200K+ price tag floated through my subconscious. Rather, I found myself wondering how Audi recommended cleaning the Suzuka Gray Matte finish covering this R8′s sleek aluminum shell. A similarly garbed version of the BMW M3 [Frozen Grey Coupe], for instance, is fragile enough to not be covered by the vehicle warranty. So you better think twice before scrubbing one of these babies too hard.

I guess it’s hard looking this good.

Audi R8 – East 37th St. @ 3rd Ave, NYC

July 13th, 2010 by Stu

Look closely and examine the interaction between the Ibis white Audi R8 and Chrysler 300 limousine pictured here, just where the mid town tunnels spills out into Manhattan. The best part is the dude in the limo, smiling for the camera as he passes off the bottle of bub to the people in the R8. Apparently bridge and tunnel people like to party.

Audi R8 – West 17th Street, NYC

February 18th, 2010 by Stu

One of our loyal readers spotted this Ibis White Audi R8 on West 17th and felt compelled to share. A testament to Walter da Silva’s arresting design, this mid engine super coupe still manages to look amazing even while positioned next to Manhattan’s curb side jewels.

Thanks Scott!

Audi S8 – East 30th Street, NYC

January 8th, 2010 by Stu

Audi S8 - East 30th Street, NYC“Something very fast…something that can shovel a bit”, said Larry the wheel man to his fellow mercenary Vincent. The pair was discussing transportation needs for the upcoming attack on a heavily-armed convoy safeguarding a mysterious suitcase chained to an unlucky bloke’s wrist. What ensued from there was some of the best chase footage ever captured and an immediate appointment to the movie car chase scene hall of fame. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, be sure to put the 1998 film Ronin on your Netflix cue. Spotted here on East 30th, this handsome S8 looks ready to do some shoveling of its own.

Audi/VW Winter Cruise – Piermont, NY

December 17th, 2009 by Stu

Audi/VW Drive - Rockland County

Who says you have to ride a HOG to travel in packs? Apparently not this group of VW/Audi enthusiasts who took their Quattro-powered sleds Winter joyriding during the season’s inaugural snowfall.  Well the GTI doesn’t have Quattro but who’s counting. The utterly dreary skies, slick road surfaces and fresh snowfall came together nicely to form the backdrop for this brigade of grey and white rides. Thanks for sharing Drew and much love to Deutschland.

2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet – Washington Street, NYC

October 28th, 2009 by Stu

side

We spotted this A5 drop top outside The Standard Hotel in Meatpacking and must say it looks every bit as classy as the coupe. The handsome convertible, which hit dealerships just this month, looks appropriately posed outside the ultra modern hotel that the NY Times called “…an architectural tour de force…”. A5 cabrio is an all new model for 2010 and replaces the decidedly less masculine A4 Cabrio in the line-up. Like its coupe sibling, the cabrio is available in front wheel drive with Audi’s venerable 2.0T four cylinder engine, making things more attainable than ever at $42,000 to start.

Audi R8 – Park Avenue, NYC

Audi R8 Park Ave

Audi is sick and tired of people viewing them as Germany’s number 3 luxury brand and the thoroughly exotic R8 is evidence. The hand assembled, mid engine super coupe from Audi’s high performance quattro GmbH subsidiary is the brand’s unabashed halo model, creating excitement and shining the design spotlight on less costly lookers like the new-for-2008 A4 and and the dashingly handsome A5. We caught this NJ-based example, cloaked in Ice Silver Metallic with Apollo Silver slingblade, parked outside Dos Caminos on Park for late night empanadas.

Mercedes Benz CLS550 – 9th Avenue, NYC

Mercedes brought sexy back in 2004 when they introduced the seductive CLS sedan. The combination of sedan practicality and low profile design allowed Mercedes to take credit for the ‘four door coupe’ moniker.

Audi A3 Sportback – 14th Street, NYC

June 10th, 2009 by Ian

 

audi-a31Everyone knows that Audi’s volume (eh hem..entry level) model in the U.S. is the A4, so we can’t really blame the boys from Ingolstadt for restricting the current A3 to two variations from an extensive lineup that consists of eight engines and two body styles (3/5 door) in Germany. But we are still fans of this slick little A3 Sportback
