Audi models to feature online music streaming
Wednesday, 22 October 2014

Audi has announced that its updated A6 and A7 Sportback models and new TT will be the first to feature optional music streaming through Napster and Aupeo!

The new connect service is part of Audi’s commitment to expanding its web-based services available to its customers.

To be able to use the new software, Audi owners must have the MMI navigation with infotainment system and the Audi connect option already fitted.

A free Audi “MMI connect” app can be downloaded to the owner’s smart phone giving drivers access to the services on the Napster music site and the Auepo! Radio service.

Audi customers can then easily stream nearly twenty million songs and thousands of audiobooks directly to the MMI – to do this the smartphone is connected to the MMI via Wi-Fi.

The new software will be available from the get go with the much awaited Audi TT which is set to go on sale next month.

From launch, the TT will come equipped with a 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine producing 227bhp and will get you from a standstill to 62mph in just 4.9 seconds.

Early next year, a TTS model producing 307bhp from a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol unit will be offered as will a more economical 2.0-litre TDI Ultra, which will reportedly achieve a frugal 65.7mpg.

A fully automatic soft-top roof will be fitted to every TT Roadster in the range. The fabric roof takes just 10 seconds to open and close, is lighter than ever before - a full 3kg less than the old model - and can be operated at speeds of up to 31mph.

The new TT Roadster also features additional underbody strengthening which Audi says will ensure that roof chop doesn’t spoil ride quality and handling dynamics. 
The carmaker also claims that the improved insulation in the new roof has reduced in-car noise levels by up to six decibels.

Interior and exterior styling has been lifted from the Coupe, which allows for a sporty profile. A luxurious cabin, which features Audi’s virtual cockpit, is based around a 12.3-inch high resolution LCD display that replaces the traditional analogue dials.

Priced from £31,955, the new TT is available to order from November with first deliveries due in March 2015.
Audi set to showcase new concept car in Los Angeles

Audi set to showcase new concept car in Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Auto Show has been chosen to host the unveiling of the first Audi concept car to be developed by new Head of Audi Design Marc Lichte.

Lichte, 45, was appointed Head of Design back in February and has since expressed how the key competences of the Audi brand – sportiness, lightweight design and Quattro drive – have all been central to his design plans.

The concept car that will be on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show marks a new start for Audi Design, inside and out.

Marc has been keen to stress the technical competence and absolute production quality of the Audi brand and is testament to how vehicle design is becoming an even stronger expression of dynamic technology.

Lichte hails from Arnsberg in Germany and began his career at the Volkswagen group back in 1996 whilst still studying at Pforzheim University for his transport design degree.

After joining Volkswagen, Marc worked as an exterior designer before being made Head of the Exterior Design Studio in 2006.

Marc was the driving force behind such production models as the Golf mark 5, 6 and 7, alongside the Passat mark 6, 7 and 8, as well as the Touareg and Phaeton models.

Another example of how Audi are continuing to push the envelope in terms of not just design but technology can be found at the Hockenheim race circuit this Sunday.

A driverless Audi RS 7 will rocket round Germany’s Hockenheim race circuit ¬at speeds approaching 149mph in an event to be streamed live on the internet.

Audi Media TV will stream the demonstration of piloted driving technology live from 12.45pm on October 19th.

State of the art sensors will guide the Audi around one of the most difficult circuits in Europe with minute precision before the start of the finale of the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).

Recent tests have concluded that a lap time of just over two minutes is achievable and that the RS 7 should be able to manage a top speed of 149mph.

Audi Media TV will be broadcasting the event exclusively live on its website with more information regarding the event available from October 14th at 2pm.
