Audi RS6 Avant

Am I the only one who feels like they’re missing something with the current crop of automotive ads? This ad for the new Audi RS 6 Avant is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Yes, I get it. The Audi RS 6 Avant is quick, nimble and does things that most other sport wagons can’t do, but is comparing it to a free-runner the best way to go about advertising it? Who knows, maybe it’s me and I’m just getting old, but I’d much rather seeing it doing sport-wagon things then sliding around playing paintball.

Audi RS7

Driving in the United States is a mixed bag of right and wrong. On the one hand we’ve got drivers who obey traffic laws, are courteous to other motorists and understand the differences between the right and left hand lanes. Germany on the other hand is a place where people are properly trained in driver education and thus, follow the countries traffic laws by the numbers. Their roads are unbelievably well maintained and for true automotive enthusiasts, it is perhaps, the greatest place on Earth to drive. J.F. Musial, Executive Producer of /DRIVE, recently got behind the wheel of the new Audi RS7 to see if Germany’s roads are as good as everybody thinks they are. Check it out after the jump.

Fast Wagons

Remember back in the day when station wagons were just big lazy vehicles that moved people around? If you were born after 1985 then probably not. However if you grew up in the 1960′s and ’70′s then the odds of your family having one of these family trucksters was pretty damn good. It’s now 2013, and to say that the wagons of yesteryear are dead and buried would be an understatement. In this episode of Chris Harris on Cars, the Monkey pits the Audi RS6 against the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake to see which one will get the ice cream home before it melts.

C63 AMG Wagon

Performance station wagons are one of the great joys in the automotive world. Tire smoking hooligans with a practical side, these beasts of engineering are not for everyone. However if you’re a wagon person, then these heavy haulers are the bees-knees when it comes to giggles-per-mile. Wagons like the Cadillac CTS-V wagon, Dodge’s now defunct SRT8 Magnum, the Audi RS6 Avant and now, this guy, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon. It packs 507 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque and will hit 62 mph in under 4-seconds. In short, it’s awesome. Motor Trends Jonny Lieberman recently traveled to Germany to see if this new AMG will be crowned the new King, or if it’s just an over-hyped grocery getter.

It comes with a rip-snorting naturally aspirated 550 hp / 398 lb-ft of torque V10, a new Dual-Clutch transmission and an “OH MY GOD” price tag of $188,000. One car is a track beast, the other, an all around animal with a high-class side. Click through and check out what the boys over at Motor Trend thought of them both.

Chris Harris on Cars

Fast, fun and all-wheel drive. Those were the parameters that Chris Harris set forth when he put together this comparison test between the R8 V10 Plus, Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Litchfield GT-R. All are stock except for the GT-R which has been tuned to the likes of 750 hp. However, does all that extra power necessarily make it better than its German rivals? Harris recently put this trio through a gaggle of tests to find out exactly that!

Battle of the Spocks: Audi S7

Audi S7

Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy. Two Spocks of different eras brought together for a battle of speed and wits in Audi’s new commercial for the 420 horsepower S7 sedan . Quinto, our new Spock, returns for his second film in the upcoming “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, while Nimoy is a veteran of seven motion pictures and will forever be our #1 Spock. And while Quinto adds a wonderfully youthful flair to the character, let’s just say that there’s no replacement for tried and true experience.

Chris Harris

Making more engine power used to mean that you’d be changing everything from the camshaft and carburetor, to the intake and heads. It was an arduous process that was time consuming and at days end, cost major money. In today’s world though, increasing horsepower can be as simple as plugging in a laptop computer and hitting a few buttons. Chris Harris recently found this out when a little bump in software gave his lightly battered Audi S4 wagon a big boost in performance. Check it out after the jump.

Bentley VS Audi

The Bentley Continental GT Speed and Audi S4, two siblings separated at birth and both from the same mother (Volkswagen). One went to the best schools, ate the best food and had the hottest girlfriends. The other, although still successful, had to work a little bit harder for it. From a price perspective you’d think the Bentley Continental GT was 10 times the car the Audi S4 is, but after enjoying a stint in both vehicles, Chris Harris seems to think differently.
