The front of the 2014 RS 6 Avant

Audi has just announced its new RS 6 Avant wagon for 2014. Based on the car's specs, it's only a wagon in the shape of the body, because the area under the hood contains goodies that seem much more akin to that of a sports car.

The Toyota hybrid TS030 team pushed the Audi Sport Team Joest teams off the top step of th...

The battle of the hybrid racing cars in World Endurance Racing took an interesting turn this weekend when Toyota's TS030 Hybrid won the fifth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The TS030 Hybrid uses a THS-R (Toyota Hybrid System - Racing) comprising a gasoline-burning 3.4 liter V8 engine and a 500 kJ Nisshinbo supercapacitor energy recovery unit which supplies power to the rear wheels. The Audi uses a turbocharged 3.7 liter V6 diesel engine with a 500 kJ electric flywheel accumulator to store recovered energy and feed it to the front wheels to create four-wheel-drive. It seems Audi has a worthy adversary in Toyota and the remainder of the season will be worth watching.  Read More
