    1. US-Spec Audi S6 Test Mule Spied, Pics at Car & Driver



      It's not that S6 mules haven't been seen before. They have. Still, one spotted on US soil in US trim is another matter entirely. Looking much like an A6 S-line save for the quad tailpipes, we're guessing this navy blue mule didn't even stick out much in traffic. After all, dealers are receiving their demo A6s already.

      Some might say it's Brock, but I'd wager David E. Davis is the godfather of automotive journalism. You see, David E. was there in the beginning... or what many see as both the beginning and the ...
    5. B8 Audi RS 4 Dead But C7 RS 6 Coming Says Car & Driver German Correspondent Jens Meiners



      There are a couple of German journalists who've become quite prolific thanks to their usually accurate early reads on moves by the German manufacturers. We usually plug Georg Kacher as the Grand Poobah of that particular Water Buffalo club and C&D's Jens Meiners is definitely an honorary member. So when Jens filed a story over on caranddriver.com this ...
