Sales launch for new Audi R8 LMS
Sep 18, 2015 - 1:20 AM - by Audi Forum

In March, the new Audi R8 LMS debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, customers can order the GT3 sports car. On September 21, quattro GmbH, a subsidiary of Audi AG, will launch production. The first customers are going to receive their race cars before the year is out.

Audi’s new GT3 race car already proved its prowess in May on clinching overall victory in the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring and two further podium places in the Spa 24 Hours in July. “Due to races like these Audi Sport customer racing has developed the Audi R8 LMS in toughest conditions to the level of readiness for customer use. Concurrently, our engineers successfully completed all tests and trials and determined the final specification,” says Heinz Hollerweger, Managing Director of quattro GmbH. At the Audi site Böllinger Höfe near the Neckarsulm location, the chassis of the production model and the race cars are manufactured at the same facilities.

Even more power and top-of-the-line equipment: The Audi SQ5 TDI plus with 340hp
Sep 09, 2015 - 12:38 AM - by Audi Forum

Audi is further expanding its range of S models. In October, the new SQ5 TDI plus* will arrive at German dealerships with more power and driving pleasure and even more extensive equipment – with 340 hp, sport differential and 21-inch wheels.

Even in its basic version, the successful Audi SQ5 TDI* comes as an SUV with the performance of a sports car. The plus version has an even higher power output. The biturbo V6 TDI produces 250 kW (340 hp) from its three liters of displacement by way of increased injection pressure. This results in 20 kW/27 hp more power compared to the SQ5 TDI. Its peak torque is increased by 50 (36.9 lb-ft) to 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft). The powerful diesel SUV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 5.1 seconds; the top speed is electronically governed to 250 km/h (155.3 mph). In the NECD cycle, it merely requires 6.6 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (35.6 US mpg) with emission of 174 g CO2/km (280.0 g/mi). Continue reading...

Audi A8L Security: most secure Audi ever
Sep 08, 2015 - 11:32 PM - by Audi Forum

Audi has once again further developed its armored high-security sedan. At the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt am Main, the premium brand is presenting the most secure Audi ever in the form of the A8L Security. The car will satisfy the criteria of the class VR 9 ballistic protection standard, currently the most stringent requirements for civilian high-security sedans.

Audi has once again made its armored security sedan even more robust. For instance, from now on the safety cell of the new Audi A8L Security will integrate extremely resistant materials – aramide fabric, special aluminum alloys and a hot-formed steel armor that offers even more protection despite its lower weight. Audi engineers also further developed the vehicle’s glazing. These improvements mean that the total vehicle is now certified to the requirements of resistance class VR 9. It has been tested for resistance to explosive charges in accordance with the ERV 2010 guideline. Previously, the A8L Security fulfilled resistance class VR 7. Continue reading...
