605-horsepower & Killer Style: 2017 Audi S8 Plus

IMG_5944Brute power and a luxurious cabin mesh beautifully together in Audi’s most powerful sedan. The S8 Plus joins the exclusive 600mph club, boasting a twin-turbo V8 paired with quattro all-wheel drive, putting down a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds.

IMG_5972“Combined with its subdued exterior design—there’s just enough extra visual aggression to make sure you won’t be mistaken for an A8 driver—the S8 Plus’s blistering performance makes it one of the ultimate sleepers sold today. In Comfort mode, it’ll cruise around like the big, cushy luxury sedan that it is. But in Dynamic mode, it hunkers down on its suspension and seemingly defies the laws of physics with keen steering, deft responses, and a willingness to rotate that belie its size and nearly two-and-a-half-ton curb weight. ” -Car and Driver

The 4-Door Hatch You Didn’t Know You Wanted

Introducing: the all-new 2018 A5 Sportback!

IMG_3168

From AudiUSA.com:

The 2018 A5 and S5 Sportback models mirror the coupe’s breakthrough design language, featuring a wider, flatter Singleframe® grille and longer, lower hood lines that highlight the powerful engines of the new A5 family vehicles. The precise wave-design shoulder line is more pronounced than previous generations and wider wheel arches provide design cues to the vehicle’s quattro® DNA. Rear horizontal design lines joined by the slim, yet sculptural three-dimension LED taillights offer a distinctly powerful look and emphasize vehicle width.

IMG_3216

The refined interior of the A5, with seating for up to five standard, includes greater attention to detail through functional refinements and additional driver-focused technologies. A three-dimensional decorative inlay trim with climate control integration spans from the door panels across the dashboard and adds breadth and lightness. The available Bang & Olufsen® sound system with 3D sound offers both an acoustic and visual highlight in the interior, and the standard panoramic sunroof helps bring light into the cabin.

Similar to the Coupe and Cabriolet models, the A5 Sportback comes equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission that produces 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and sprints from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

IMG_3276

The S5 Sportback is equipped with a re-engineered 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 engine to produce an impressive 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque and sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The S5 is also newly equipped with an eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission that is well suited for the low-end torque of the new 3.0-liter turbocharged engine.

Both variants of the Sportback come standard-equipped with quattro® all-wheel drive, offering enhanced agility through a self-locking center differential, with a basic ratio of 40:60 front to rear, and wheel-selective torque control. The redesigned front five-link suspension with lightweight construction offers greater steering precision and excellent handling through optimized steering-rack placement direct at wheel centers.

The A5 and S5 Sportback offer the same advanced infotainment systems as the A5 Coupe and Cabriolet models including the available Audi virtual cockpit, MMI® touch® with handwriting-recognition and newly available in-car Audi connect® infotainment and security features, supported by 4G LTE connectivity (where available). A full suite of advanced driver assistance systems, including standard Audi pre sense® basic and city and available Audi adaptive cruise control with stop & go and traffic jam assist, help drivers navigate the road and traffic with confidence.

One of 50: Audi RS7 Titanium Edition

Audi found a way to make the RS7 even better.

IMG_8081The performance hatch that doubles as a family sedan is often in the dreams of enthusiasts for good reason. It ranks as #1 in Car And Driver’s “Premium Sports Sedan” ranking, and we can barely keep them on our lot.

A powerful twin-turbo 4.0L  V8 produces 560hp (605hp in the Performance), paired with a eight-speed automatic, all-wheel drive, and a lowered suspension- making the RS7 the closest you can get to the R8 with four doors.

The RS7 is fantastic. More than fantastic. And even more than that. And yet, Audi found a way to make some even even better.

Cue the 2017 RS7 Performance Titanium Edition: an Audi Exclusive.

IMG_8108You get all the souped up goodness of the Performance model, plus a whole lot more, including the bragging rights to owning one of the 50 available in the US. That’s right, this RS7 was limited to just 50 units, and we received quite possibly the best one: Nardo Gray. Because who doesn’t love Nardo Gray?

IMG_8114So, what makes up this new Titanium Edition?

  • Black leather/Alcantara interior
  • RS Sport Seats w/Crimson Red honeycomb stitching and Crimson Red quattro script
  • Crimson Red seat belts
  • Black Alcantara headliner with Crimson Red Stitching throughout the edge
  • Black leather center console with Crimson Red stitching
  • Black leather/Alcantara steering wheel with Crimson Red stitching and a Crimson Red 12 o’clock marker
  • Black floor mats with Crimson Red piping
  • Titanium Optic exterior Design- trim around grille and windows, mirror caps
  • Audi Sport (Akrapovic) Titanium Exhaust

IMG_8180IMG_8162IMG_8145IMG_8157The best part? It is currently available for purchase HERE!

First Delivery in the Country: 2017 Audi R8 Spyder

The first 2017 Audi R8 Spyder delivery took place over the past weekend, and we were lucky enough to be the ones to house it. If you recall our recent article about the Suzuka Gray Spyder, an auction took place at the 2017 Naples Winter Wine Festival for the first 2017 R8 Spyder in the country. That R8 arrived last Friday and was delivered Saturday by us!

It was a beauty. It came in a gorgeous Ara Blue Crystal effect with a black top, over a black full leather interior with silver diamond stitching.

IMG_7383Additional options included:

  • Carbon Exterior Package: carbon sigma sideblades, carbon fiber engine compartment, carbon fiber trimmed convertible top compartment lid
  • Diamond stitch leather Package: full leather interior
  • Carbon Interior Package
  • 20″ Wheel Package: 10-spoke forged wheels in Silver, 245/30 front and 305/30 rear tires
  • Contrast stitching

Exclusive Look: 2017 Audi R8 Spyder

IMG_4661The wait is finally over. After a couple year hiatus, Audi has brought back the drop-top version of its supercar with a complete makeover: feast your eyes on the new 2017 Audi R8 Spyder.

One of the very few currently in the US, and Audi USA’s PR car, the Spyder was carefully delivered to our lot and admired by everyone who laid eyes on it. No touching though!

IMG_4495Suzuka Gray donned the outside, paired with 20″ titanium forged alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and aluminum trim, heavenly matched by an Express Red leather interior with carbon fiber inlays and diamond stitched seats.

The Spyder is no different from the coupe: a growling 5.2L V10 produces 540hp/398lb-ft torque, laid down by its Quattro AWD system and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, with technology at the top of its class. The only minute distinction is the absence of a roof and a little button inside.

IMG_4743It’s a beauty, isn’t it?

IMG_4656While the speed of the Spyder is nothing short of impressive, so is Audi’s technology inside the cabin, making it equal parts racecar and luxury road-tripper. The convertible is equipped with all the awesome features found in the 2017 A4, 2017 Q7, 2017 TT/TTS, and 2017 A3/S3- Virtual Cockpit, digital climate control, refined shifter and steering wheel, and enhanced MMI.

IMG_4710The same 2017 R8, with a disappearing top.

After its time with us, the Spyder took a trip to the Tiburon Ritz-Carlton for the 2017 Naples Winter Wine Festival. The stunning Spyder was on hand at the festival to give patrons a glimpse at what the supercar has to offer, helping to aid the auction for the first 2017 R8 Spyder to be delivered in the US. While this particular Spyder was not the auction car, the bid ended at $360k for a gorgeous Ara Blue Crystal Spyder for one lucky person!

Driving On Sunshine // Vegas Yellow 2017 S3

img_3970What happens in Vegas… should be done with the company of this S3! Audi introduced a new color for some 2017 models called Vegas Yellow. We covered a Vegas Yellow TTS awhile back, but since then there has been no other glimpse of the sunshine-y color until now. The S3 is already off turning heads with its new owner, but not before we were able to snag some photos. Equipped with a Carbon Pkg that includes mirror caps and a rear spoiler, the carbon sweetly completes the look of this bright gem. We must say, Vegas Yellow certainly fits in with the Sunshine State!
