EDITOR’s LETTER» Greetings fellow car guys & gals About the designer: From as early as age three, Asa has had an OCD-like obsession with the tidy and neat, a fascination for mechanical design, and a love for the flowing artistic line. Since then, he’s gained an interest in automobiles, aircraft, typography, technology, fashion and anything else that’s beautiful to his beholding. Asa graduated from Pensacola Christian College in May 2007. He currently works in the Creative Services department with the Northwest Florida Daily News under Freedom Communications.

NEW A3 CONCEPT IS ROUGHLY THE SAME SIZE AS 1996 A4

“We’ve made some truly sizable advancements.”

Up & Coming A3 likely will not come standard with full LED lighting.

Same story for drilled brake rotors, oversized wheels and abundance of carbon fiber.

Only the sedan form is slated for the US Market.

Svelte exterior (and interior) is classic Audi and a big hit in our eyes.

Press release emphasizes a 5-cylinder. Expect turbocharged 4 standard. Carbon fiber hybrid wheels aren’t cost effective, but they do shed 8 lbs per corner.
