    Do you find the “regular” Audi R8 just a bit too pedestrian? Looking for something with a little extra oomph and exclusivity? Audi just unveiled the answer for you: The R8 Competition, a 570-hp tribute to Audi’s R8 LMS race cars—and it’s the fastest, most-powerful, and most-limited version of the four-ring supercar you can buy in the U.S. The R8 Competition packs a serious punch, with the 570-horse total representing a 20-hp boost from the V-10 Plus model.

  • Audi Kills A6 Hybrid Because Nobody Bought It

    Three years ago, Audi launched a hybrid version of the A6, and the company hinted strongly that it would be sold in the U.S. as well. But those plans never materialized and now it is too late: The A6 hybrid has departed this world after just 4000 units built. Requiescat in pace.

Powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four with 211 horsepower and a 54-hp electric motor, it produced combined system power of 245 horsepower. Fully electric range was rated at 2 miles, and it was able to reach 62 mph on battery power alone. With a…
