The new Audi A1 episode movie: The final episode reveals the secret of “the next big thing”. And it´s definitely not what John (Justin Timberlake) or anybody expected. Visit the website http://www.audi.com/a1 to watch final episode once more and experience what happend behind the scenes.

This is the last installment of a six part mini-series and a huge letdown. The story was weak and the conclusion even weaker. I must admit the new A1 looks good, though.

I revisited The Hire BMW film series and even their weakest film short was 10 times better than this series. The legendary series of short “webisodes” featured A-list directors such as John Woo and Ridley Scott telling tales of the Hire, an enigmatic driver and the passengers that need his transportation and protection. My favorite was The Star. This short film was directed by Guy Ritchie and enlists his ex-wife, Madonna, to play the most spoiled and shallow diva on screen to date. Hilarious.

Audi please take note: storyline is key for any film to be successful and entertaining.

audi_episode2The new Audi A1 episode movie: In the second episode of “The next big thing” the pursuers are very close on their heels and a spectacular car chase begins. Then John (Justin Timberlake) and Toni (Dania Ramirez) are contacted by a mysterious person.

A car chase scene on busy downtown streets, bullets flying that can’t seem to hit a target, and dialogue that needs help from Quentin Tarantino with lines like, “Cut the action-movie sh**. I don’t have time for this.” Forget the supporting characters, it’s the A1 that is the star in this episode.

This is only the second episode, and the rest will be released every Tuesday every week for the next 4 weeks. We’ll be featuring each episode on this blog.

Audi_A1_thenextbigthing_screenshot1The new Audi A1 episode movie: The first episode shows John Frank (Justin Timberlake) in a café where he meets the attractive and mysterious Toni (Dania Ramirez) who is being followed. Through her, John is driven into “The next big thing” – action!

Looking at pretty photos of a car is really nice but nothing beats watching a car in full motion action. BMW’s The Hire short clips were the talk of the town during its time and people still refer to them every now and then these days and I won’t deny that the Madonna short movie played a part in making me fall for the E39.

Now Audi is following the same footsteps with a 6 part mini-series featuring Justin Timberlake, Dania Ramirez and the Audi A1. The mini-series is called The Next Big Thing and is directed by Swedish filmmaker Henrik Sundgren.

2010 Audi RS6Expatriates have all the luck

If you are looking another reason to pack your bags and move to Europe, maybe Audi can finally persuade you with a limited edition RS6 that is only available in Europe. 500 of these limited edition RS6′s will be made and each will be individually numbered. There will be two separate packages, but both will come with 20-inch wheels, sports suspension and a “Carbon design package” for the engine bay.

Audi has has given both special edition packages rather cumbersome names: RS6 plus Sport and RS6 plus Audi exclusive. Customers looking for special colored leather trim and a custom paint job will want to choose the exclusive package. The far less “exclusive” plus Sport package will have an instrument-panel hood and a center console wrapped in leather. Audi will even throw in a set of special front floor mats.

Audi Q5 Hybrid Revealed, Production Scheduled to Begin Next Year

Tuesday December 29th, 2009 at 10:1212 PM
Posted by: michael.leroy

2010 Audi Q5

Audi on Dec. 28 released a press statement confirming that the Q5 Hybrid will begin production at the end of 2010. The vehicle will be the first hybrid car sold by the German automaker.

The Q5 Hybrid may likely be based on the VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne. The rumored powertrain is a 3.0 liter V6 with a 52-hp electric assist engine. A hybrid A4 model should follow soon after the Q5.

Last year Audi canceled the Q5 Hybrid because the company was unhappy with the crash test results with nickel metal hydride batteries. This may have been an excuse to give Audi more time to develop their hybrid technology. There could be a chance that the Q5 could come equipped with lithium ion batteries which will improve fuel efficiency.

2010 Audi A5 Cabriolet Review – A stunning drop top with the moves to match

Monday December 21st, 2009 at 9:1212 AM

2010 Audi S4

By Alex Kramer

Pros:

  • Versatile turbocharged engine
  • Sticks to the road like glue
  • Well-appointed, luxurious interior
  • Soft-top folds down in a mere 15 seconds

Cons:

  • Could use a few more ponies under the hood
  • Rear seats are for kids only
  • A bit pricey, even for a luxury convertible

Introduction

Let’s face it, in the eyes of car enthusiasts convertibles just don’t get much respect. Taking the top off of a sporty coupe is seen as a recipe for appealing to the fairer sex, for whom aesthetic appeal is far more important than tire roasting acceleration or slot car like handling. When Audi announced that it would produce its A5 coupe in a cabriolet for 2010, one could easily interpret this as a blatant move in the hairdresser direction. With the TT roadster aimed more at the sports car segment, the A5 Cabriolet will surely appeal to the well-coiffed crowd.
