    1. Breaking: Audi AG Drops Manual Transmission 6-Speed for EU Market Facelifted S4 and S5 Range. US Retains Them!



      In a move you don't always see from Audi, we've stumbled across an interesting turn of events surrounding manual transmissions in next year's facelifted S4 and S5. When a friend from Audi AG pointed out to us that he couldn't get a manual transmission in a 3.0 TDI A5 Sportback and then another our friend Mike ...
    2. On Location: 4 Days at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt (Part 4), Including the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet!



      Thus far this week, we've posted galleries from three recent visits to the Audi Forum Ingolstadt on October 18 , October 20 and October 21 . Hitting the same place in just such a short amount of time, we'd expected to begin to see the same old same old... and were quite surprised when we were wrong. Our fourth and final visit (for now), came about a week later ...
    3. Audi RS 5 Cabriolet Mule Spied in Germany



      Okay, so the RS 5 Cabriolet isn't exactly Audi's best kept secret. We've been seeing RS 5 chinned cabriolets parked at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt parking garage before and then just last month several CGIs of Audi's upcoming musclebound droptop surfaced on the web following the company's patent filing.

      So even though it's not entirely new, when a likely example ...
    4. Featured: Limoncello, an Imola Yellow B6 Audi S4 on Klutch



      Just in case you attended this summer's Waterfest show in New Jersey, you likely spotted this Imola Yellow Audi S4 sedan parked at the NGP stand in the vendor area. Truth is. It's hard to miss.

      Sitting super low and rolling on 19x9.5" Miro 111 wheels that bare more than a passing resemblance to BBS motorsport wheels one might see on a Porsche RS Spyder LMP2 car in similar yellow paint, it's fair ...
    5. Audi Driver: Vanessa Hudgens Picks Up New S5 Cabriolet. Posts Photo on Facebook.



      Actress Vanessa Hudgens isn't exactly new to the Audi fold. Both she and her boyfriend Zac Efron are regularly spotted out and about in four-ringers. Efron tends to prefer the R8 and Hudgens likes to be seen in Cabriolets, usually black Cabriolets. So perhaps it wasn't a surprise when the actress posted a shot of her new ride on Facebook.



      Based ...
    6. Photo Gallery: More Photos of the 2013 Audi S5 Added.



      Audi has released even more photos of its newly improved S5 range including Sportback, Coupe and Cabriolet. We've stumbled across this mix of photos available via Audi's German consumer website.

      For those who haven't yet read the official Audi press release yet, this is a mid generation 'product improvement' and one that sees the car adopt the latest S-car ...
    7. Facelifted A5/S5 Cabriolet Mule Pops Up on AutoZeitung



      Disguised facelift variants of A/S4 and A/S5 bodystyles have been popping up on spy photo pages for a few weeks now. This morning you can now add Cabriolet to the list of cars that've been seen, and it looks to either be an S5 or an A5 S-line.

      Why S or S-line? It's the lower valence. Note the same shape as the A6 S-line. The brakes on the car look big enough to be S5 ...
    8. Spied: Second Audi S5 with RS 5 Nose Spotted at Ingolstadt Headquarters



      Our favorite German Audi blog Qarsi.de has posted a shot of an S5 Cabriolet wearing the nose of an RS 5 spied at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. This is the second S5 Cabrio we've seen fitted with the RS chin and the first led a number of our readers to suggest this might be an indication of the facelift expected next year.

      So What Do We Think?
      Two things come to mind. First, we heard reference ...
    9. Mysterious S5 Cabriolet with RS 5 Nose Spotted at Audi Forum Ingolstadt



      Check out these images of an S5 Cabriolet we've found over at Audiblog.nl. The car appears to be a stock Ibis White S5 Cabriolet with 20-inch wheel option other than what appears to be an OEM front fascia from the RS 5.

      There's no actual confirmation that the piece is the RS 5 piece or something new from Audi but we're guessing it is the stock RS piece. Knowing though is interesting because ...
    10. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Glut Orange Audi S5 Hints at New Project Series from Fourtitude



      A friend of this website and contributor to the Speed Sport Life blog and regular on several Audi forums Nick Salvatore has just taken delivery of his new S5 and happily admits he dipped into the Audi Exclusive side of the order form to make sure his car was nearly one of a kind. Glut Orange is the hue, a non-metallic amber that is sure to get Nick and his car noticed. We've seen other Audis such as R8s and ...
