Audrina Cathleen Patridge was born May 9, 1985.He is an American television personality and actress, known as one of the original primary cast members on the MTV reality show The Hills. Patridge will be appearing as the lead in her own reality series The Audrina Show which premieres in 2010.Audrina is the host of The Talent Contest Network,, as well.She has also appeared in Sorority Row and Into The Blue 2.

After moving to Los Angeles, she was hired for a job at Quixote Studios as a receptionist. In 2006, Laguna Beach stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag moved into her building to shoot their MTV show The Hills. Audrina became friends with both girls and joined the cast of the series. In the 3rd-5th Hills seasons, Audrina had been working for Epic Records. On May 28, 2009, she confirmed during an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest that she was leaving The Hills to star in her own reality-based program documenting her life outside the Hills. Her final episode of the series aired on December 1, 2009, but surprisingly, she signed on for the sixth season of The Hills while her new show, The Audrina Show, produced by Mark Burnett, set to air on MTV in mid 2010, was put on hold due to The Hills.

The Mercedes SL model was revealed in the Geneva Motor Show in March. The 2008 SL gets a new, more aggressive front end reflecting Mercedes's new design philosophy, with a pair of long powerdomes on the bonnet and a single-bar grille replacing the old three-bar effort. Also improvements have been made on the engines as the 3.5L V6 is uprated to 311 PS (229 kW; 307 hp) at 6500 rpm. Compared to the previous 3.5-litre engine, the output has been boosted by 16 percent. Torque has also been improved adding 10 N�m (7.4 lb�ft) to the previous 350 N�m (260 lb�ft) making it 360 N�m (270 lb�ft). this engine now can rev up to a max of 7200 rpm for a period as the oil temperature and other engine parameters permitting, a higher compression ratio, a new intake manifold and extensively modifying and lightening the valve train. In this case, however, the extra power does not come at the expense of fuel economy: with a consumption figure of 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres, the new SL 350 undercuts the previous model developing 200 kW (272 PS; 268 hp) by 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres. Mercedes-Benz is extending the SL-Class line-up by introducing an attractive entry-level model in the shape of the SL 280 developing 170 kW (231 PS; 228 hp). The six cylinder powerplant delivers its peak torque of 300 N�m (220 lb�ft) from 2500 rpm and accelerates the roadster from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.8 seconds, whilst fuel consumption (NEDC) is just 9.4 L/100 km (30 mpg-imp; 25 mpg-US). It will feature the AIRSCARF heating system used in the SLK.
