The first “RS Plus” edition from Audi was the TTRS Plus, then came the R8 V10 Plus. Now it has been announced that an RS6 Plus is on the way. The RS6 Plus will add around 50 horsepower bring the number to just over 600bhp, lighter in overall weight, and better suspension. This will be the general format for all future “RS Plus” models from Audi. They will have more power, improved suspension, and lighter materials (carbon fiber).

Rumor has it that this new edition from Audi is in response to Mercedes AMG S-Model lineup.

Volkswagen Golf R to be Revealed in 2 Weeks

0 comments

Volkswagen is teasing the reveal of the all new Mk7 Golf R online. The website shows a block of ice with a countdown. ________ Click HERE to view the Golf R Website.

While the online countdown is set, it's expected to debut as a 'Concept' March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show and as a production model in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The 2.0TFSI is believed to have around 290-300bhp with of course its signature AWD. The race inspired exterior is rumored to be simply a refresh or slight update from the Mk6 look.

With this earlier than past R model release, it does give more credit to a possible Golf RS or other model that will be more powerful than the Golf R. Also, this could back up the rumored unlimited availability, and be sold as another VW model saving the 'Uber' VW for limited production.

Audi R8 e-tron On Hold - Not Making Production

0 comments

News broke today that Audi will not bring the highly anticipated R8 e-tron into production. An Audi spokesman confirmed the model has been delayed indefinitely.
The spokesman was quoted saying “We’ve already built 10 cars which are being evaluated internally.” “We’re concerned about the limited range of pure electric cars with existing battery technology, we don’t think the customers are ready to accept it." “We now have a new head of technical development, Mr Durheimer, who is keeping a close eye on these sorts of projects, so we have to make sure it truly represents an Audi.” “Once technology improves who knows, never say never.”

Details for the R8 e-tron were recently released in Audi’s technology magazine. The vehicle weighs 3,924 pounds, and with twin electric motors they produce 376hp together making a 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds. Using a household socket, full charge only takes 12 hours with a driving range of 134 miles.
