  1. As usual, I love every single shot. Nice work on variety and quality! That Octavia rally car picture was especially great; that jumping fan made me laugh.

  2. Awesome pics, even though there were no Alfas! I am partial!

  3. Amazing shots! Love every single one!

  4. So the S4 WAS the S6? interesting…

    • yes, the original S4 was based on the 100/A6, not the 80/90/A4.

      • but the RS4 was based on the 80, right?

        • You might be thinking of the RS2 (1994-1995, I believe), which was based on the Audi 80 Avant (B5 series). Actually, it was a joint venture with, and assembled by, Porsche. The RS4 from about 2000-onward have been based on the Audi A4 (B5-B8 series sedans and avants).

          • nailed it. bizarre that they’d base the RS”2″ on what would become the A4, and the S4 on what is would be the A6. :S

            • Both the RS2 and Ur-S4 were on the market before Audi started using the A-series model names in the mid-90’s. Looking back on it now, you’re right, it’s confusing.

            • Of course, that leaves me wondering how they came up with the model naming strategy for the original S2, RS2 and S4. I understand the “S” for “Sport” and the “RS” perhaps for “Racing Sport” (I’m just guessing here), but then where did the 2 and the 4 come from?
