Audi has gone through some significant changes since its inception way back in 1910 and has become a household, BMW- and Mercedes-Benz-rivaling marque many people love.
It was in the sixties that the German car manufacturer shifted gears and began producing its innovatively-designed and engineering cars, and over the years, has delivered some truly outstanding models. In this article, we list the top Audi car that have seen the light of day over the past 15 years, some of which you can get at a great price on the market.
2008 Audi R8
The 2008 model year Audi R8 is now over ten years old, but a second-hand version will still set you back a pretty penny because it is a supercar that can actually be used for the daily use. What made this car great was its innovative and sleek design, which certainly catches the eye anywhere it strolls. Its mid-engine layout, abundant power, and excellent handling make it a great all-around performer.
Not only does the R8 look and perform great, but it also sounds amazing.
2008 Audi C6 RS6
2008 was a good year for Audi. In addition to the aforementioned R8, the company released yet another solid performer in the form of the C6 RS6. While this one might look like a practical family car, one perfect for grocery shopping or ferrying around the kids, it has a hoot of an engine.
A twin turbo V10 engine with over 500 horsepower means this seemingly harmless looking car is the very definition of a sleeper
2010 Audi RS5
Targeted at the likes of the Mercedes C63 AMG and BMW M3, the highly sought-after Audi RS5 makes a statement with its sleek design and superb performance. Its V8 4.2 litre engine, as well as the fact that it was a limited edition model, only makes it more desirable.
2011 Audi A8 4.2 Quattro
Though not as sporty and performance-oriented as the other models on this list, the 2011 Audi A8 4.2 Quattro is a great luxury sedan that impresses with its stately appearance, opulent interior, confident ride, powerful engine, and overall polish. It can do 0 to 60 in just 5.1 seconds, which is impressive for a full-size sedan.
2011 Audi RS3 Sportback
The Audi RS3 Sportback’s premium interior, potent engine, and four-wheel drive-enhanced handling makes it a feisty hatchback — pocket rocket! It can accelerate to 60 in under 4 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.
For some perspective, the Murciélago LP640 completed the sprint in around 3.2 seconds in Car and Driver’s instrumented tests.
2012 Audi R18 Ultra
It was the Audi R18 Ultra, an e-tron quattro, hybrid electric version of the reguarl R18, that won the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans and made the world once again take notice of Audi’s engineering and technological know-how. It was th to win at Le Mans, as well as the first with four-wheel drive.
2013 Audi RS4 Avant Quattro
The Audi RS4 Avant Quattro is a versatile car that proves that wagons don’t have to be boring. Not only is it an incredible performance, thanks to its 4.2 litre, V8 engine sports-tuned suspension, but it’s also a great family vehicle. The 2013 edition accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (km/h) in less than five seconds, making it faster than supercars of yesterday.
2014 Audi TT Coupe
As one of the company’s most popular cars, Audi TT Coupe is a great-looking sports car with some top-notch engineering and technologies. For the bachelor in all of us, it makes for a fun daily car.
2017 Audi S8
As the German automaker’s flagship, the latest-generation Audi S8 provides everything we have come to expect from Audi, including a hugely powerful engine and impressive power and speed, all combined with an attractive sheetmetal that should turn a few heads. With a 0 to 60 mph sprint of less than four seconds, a top speed of 190 mph, and the latest and greatest in luxury and convenience tech, it’s among the best performance sedans you can buy.
From hatchbacks to family cars, from racing cars to sports coupes, Audi never fails to delver quality vehicles. The German automaker is one-of-a-kind, won’t you agree?
Is Audi Bringing More Wagons To The United States, Canada?
An enigmatic Twitter post suggests more Audi wagons are coming to North America.
With the A4 Allroad serving as its only wagon available in the United States and Canada, Audi could be gearing up to capitalize on the small renaissance in the wagon segment.
A tweet () by the German automaker hints at more of its wagon crossing the Atlantic, with some reports claiming that the A6 Avant at the very least will be sold alongside the rugged, more offroad-oriented A4 Allroad.
The performance-oriented RS6 Avant with its twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 may also come to America, giving practical-minded driving enthusiasts a compelling option to consider.
The North American-spec A6 Avant could go on sale sometime in the second half of 2019 as 2020 model year vehicle as Audi’s an answer to Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon and Volvo V90. How will you configure yours?
Audi’s New Tech Lets Drivers Catch Green Lights, Avoid Red Lights
If you hate sitting at red lights, Audi has a novel solution that allows you to ride the ‘wave’ of green lights.
Audi has introduced a new technology that could make waiting at red lights a thing of the past.
Leveraging the company’s Traffic Light Information system, the so-called ‘Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory’ (GLOSA) system uses traffic light information to let drivers know what speed they should travel to catch the next green light and avoid having to stop at a red light, thereby reducing a journey’s overall emissions.
“Audi is committed to moving America in many ways, including through the development of industry-leading connectivity and mobility solutions,” said Mark Del Rosso, president, Audi of America. “Not only do vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies like GLOSA benefit drivers today, they’re also the critical steps needed as we continue toward an automated future.”
But should you by chance get stuck at a red light, the system also has a countdown to green that lets you know exactly how long you’ll have to wait before you can continue on your journey.
Available on select 2017 and newer vehicles, the GLOSA system launches in select metro areas before expanding to new locals over time.
New Audi e-tron GT Concept Previews Audi’s Tesla Model S Fighter
The electrified fastback sedan will eventually join the e-tron SUV in Audi’s growing electric vehicle lineup.
Audi has revealed the e-tron GT concept, effectively previewing its answer to the Tesla Model S.
Based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan, the e-tron GT will follow the e-tron and e-tron Sportback crossovers as the brand’s third electric car. It features a five-door liftback bodystyle that’s similar to the A7, though it slightly wider and sits lower to the ground than that Audi. In fact, the car’s center of gravity is more inline with an R8 supercar thanks to having its battery mounted below the floor.
Powered by an electric drivetrain that produces 590 horsepower, and with a permanent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring distributing that power, the e-tron GT can rocket to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds and to 124 mph (200 km/h) in around 12 seconds. A 90-kWh battery allows it to drive over 249 miles (402 km) according to the WLTP test cycle, and drivers can expect to recharge a depleted battery to 80 percent in just 20 minutes
As with the e-tron SUV, the production e-tron GT’s design is expected to stay true to the concept. Audi says production will begin sometime in 2020.
What do you think about the Audi e-tron GT Concept? Do you like what you see, and does Tesla have something to be worried about? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
