How do you know a car is nearing production? When it has its coming out party at the Nurburgring. We've seen A6 and A7 mules that we thought were RS mules before but there's no question about this Avant. Those bolstered fender flares are one easy spot but the other is a disguised fascia nearly identical to RS 4 mules before that car was revealed.
Under the hood we expect to see a higher-powered variation of
We're running on Red Bull and Toblerone, jet-lagged and ready to hit the CET hay. Before we did though, we wanted to get a gallery up of what we saw tonight at the Volkswagen Group reveal. The new Audi A3 (above) is obviously the most important on these pages but below are a few more we think you'll find most interesting. At the bottom is the link to the full gallery.
Audi held another TechDay recently where they invited European press to see future technologies, this time focusing on driver assistance and LED technologies. If you're wondering where your car is going in the future, this story over at Car & Driver is worth the read.

We've just taken delivery of our latest 4 Season test car, and while we plan a more intensive and detailed formal intro shortly, we've decided to officially confirm the car as we've teased it quite a bit via Instagram. Over the next few months we'll be doing the usual like highlighting what it's like to live with and own such a car, though we've also got even more in store for Audi R8 fans. Stay tuned.

This car marked a fantastic era of racing for Audi in America and perhaps a bit of a precursor to the whole downsizing
As Audi of America's main charity, Best Buddies is always on our radar. This graphic came through with their annual holiday e-card from chairman Anthony Shriver. We wish them and those they help the happiest of holidays.
Okay, it's a bit heavy on the self promotion but we'll give AutoSpies a pass for the dual Audi product placement on their 2011 holiday e-card.
Knowing that tailoring a car to one's own tastes is of high priority to Audi clientele, quattro GmbH is more than willing to paint your new four-ringer any color you want. As such, we're always on the prowl for an Audi owner who's tried something different... like the matte red on this RS 5. Our friend Hans Z. dropped us a note to alert us of the photo set posted of this cherry RS 5 over on AutoGespot. Check out the full set there
When it comes to driving cool Audis, I can't complain. As editor of Fourtitude I've had the chance to sample cars like the R8 GT , the R8 V12 TDI Le Mans Concept , the Audi quattro Concept and even an early A5 drivetrain mule of the latter dubbed "The Beast" .
