I bought the cheapest R35 GT-R in the UK. Here’s why..

After my last endeavour in the Audi world with my supercharged Rs4 destroying itself, I was in the market for something fast. Now if you draw up an imaginary budget of let’s say … £30K. In the Uk that gives you a pretty healthy plethora of cars to choose from, especially those which focus on …

My high mileage supercharged Audi RS4 is broken.

I bought this car for two reasons , first it’s very powerful and makes Norse god like noises, the second it’s high mileage so no doubt will have some interesting, if not expensive stories to document. So I start today speaking about the latter. Late one evening I’m minding my own business driving through a …

The Audi S1 is the old school hot hatch we deserve.

Boasting a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder borrowed from VW’s golf R, the S1 is off to a good start. With 0-60 being taken care of in under 6 seconds (5.8 to be precise), the S1 delivers big power and spec yet a compact and agile chassis. The S1 lump creates a modest sounding yet …

The First Generation Audi R8 is a mid-engined masterpiece.

Utilising a sizeable chunk of their iconic 4.2 litre V8 from the B7 RS4, Audi were off to a strong start in their first super-car venture. Using a revised intake due to the now mid-engined lay out along with a dry sump. The R8’s V8 remains almost unaltered from its B7 guise, producing the same …

Why the Audi S3 is the new bargain performance saloon.

Audi may be known mainly for their domination of the fast estate car market, but they’ve made some pretty special saloon cars along the way. The first ultra powerful “modern” Audi saloon came in 1997, with the B5 S4 261BHP and 400Nm from a bi-turbo V6. Sounds pretty amazing right? Add this to a sorted …

Here’s why high mileage performance cars can be a good investment.

Just shy of five years ago I found myself as a young man on the hunt to attain one of my dream cars. After watching Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson thrash a Misano red Audi B7 RS4 saloon up a mountain against two climbers, I just knew I had to have one. However being 20 …

What’s it like to daily drive a 600BHP manual estate car?

Well to answer that it’s pretty damn awesome , and I’ll explain why. Covering thousands of miles a year can be a fairly laborious process with little engaging or entertaining about it. I’ve daily driven 3 RS4s now , one b7 saloon one b5 avant and this charged avant. They’ve all been very good at …

Why the B5 RS4 is the forgotten hero of the millennium.

Cast your mind back to 2000, a little tricky for me I was 5. However Audi’s first Rennsport model, the Porsche co-designed RS2 was over the hill, was this just a flash in the pan? Oh no Audi were just getting started. Audi had started with a pretty good recipe in the RS2 with a …

Here’s how I bought the highest mileage supercharged RS4 in the world.

High mileage hero or villain? So it’s around March 2019, my 2001 b5 Audi RS4 in avus silver is up for sale on various auction sites. For a laugh on Facebook Marketplace also. I end up getting a message from this guy , he’s umming and Arring about buying my b5 , he mentions he …
