But the Audi here is, of course, not American. That does not make it any less deserving of our love. It features what Audi refer to as a four-door coupe form, which I believe was first adopted by Mercedes-Benz years ago.

Audi’s Extends The Already Long A8 L To An Even Ridiculous 20.9 Feet

Clearly, not everyone thinks that the already super stretched A8 L’s 17.3 feet (5.27 meters) is long enough. An anonymous (and obviously wealthy) customers in Europe is one such person who proceed to order an Audi A8 L Extended that stretches a cool 20.9 feet (6.36 meters) that bumps the original 10.24 feet (3.12 meters) wheelbase to an extra roomy 13.8 feet (4.22 meters). The extra meter-plus length results in two extra doors and a third row of seats that, unlike a typical limousine, is not facing each other, which is kind of odd if you ask us cos’ the prime reason for opting for limousine is the legroom offered by face-to-face third and second row seats and the ability to communicate with each other while sipping on chilled champagne.

600PS Electric Biturbo-powered Audi TT Concept Makes 0-62 MPH in 3.6s, Said to be “Production Ready”

Turbo is known to have perceptible lag. Like it or not, it is part and parcel of turbo, but actually not for long. Meet Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept, the first in the automotive industry to be equipped with an electric bi-turbo. Since electric power is instantaneous, it can rev to the maximum RPM rapidly without the perceptible lag and will continue to boost charge pressure when the exhaust is at the verge of running out of puff. The end result? A significantly quicker acceleration. In fact, the electric bi-turbo that’s outfitted to the TT Clubsport Concept’s 2,480cc (2.5L) five-cylinder engine helped to produce a cool 600 PS (592 HP) and churns out 479.4 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque, enabling it to cover up to 53 feet (16 meters) within the first 2.5 seconds, which theoretically speaking, kind of puts it ahead of its competition without such technology.
