    1. Spied: Audi R8 e-tron Test Mule at Nurburgring Hints at Upcoming R8 Refresh



      Our spy photographer sources have just sent us over a new set of shots of the R8 e-tron test mule of which a few photos surfaced yesterday. Photographers tell us this mule rounded the Ring quite quietly though we're checking to see if it was employing any of the e-sound elements that Audi defined recently.

      Obvious e-tron design cues such as those on earlier ...
    2. Spied: Audi RS 6 Avant at Nurburgring



      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 ...
    3. Next-Generation MLB Audi Q7 Spied Cold Weather Testing in Sweden



      Spy photographers have caught a next generation Audi Q7 mule cold weather testing in Sweden today. If it doesn't look much different from the current car, don't fret. Audi usually tests cars early in their gestation period wearing bodywork from the current car.

      Underneath the Q7 bodywork is where the key changes are. The next-generation Q7 will migrate to Audi's modular longitudinal ...
    4. Audi RS 4 Bumper Mystery Continues But Potential British Customers May Now Rejoice



      We've just received some new spy photos of the Audi RS 4 still doing some testing in southern Europe. Bodywork of the car remains still remains unclear though shots like the one above to reveal a few key points. In particular, the front quarter panel in this shot from above seems to confirm a box flare style of widened fender consistent with the ...
    5. Audi A3 Mule Spied Practically Undisguised in Spain



      As the new MQB-based Audi A3 moves toward its Geneva Motor Show debut, miles are still be ing logged on A3 test mules. This particular one, practically undisguised with the exception of some masking around the lighting elements, was caught driving down public roads in Spain. Thanks Kiky for the eagle eye, snapping a quick photo and sharing it with us. Expect full coverage of the Geneva Auto Show debut of the new A3 in early March. ...
    6. Spied: Audi A3 3-Door Cold-Weather Testing



      As winter sets in to the northern hemisphere, Audi's team of engineers and fleet of future product mules have headed north to the barren areas of remote Sweden. So too have spy photographers and the latest set of shots to come in from our spy photog sources show that the 3-door Audi A3 is still very much in the cycle of cold weather testing.

      Company sources ...
    7. Even More Audi RS 4 Test Mule Sightings Reported



      Remember that Audi commercial with the car carrier? You know... the one where the BMW owner climbs on the roof of his car at a fairly decent clip and jumps onto a car carrier loaded with new Audis. It's funny yes, but any killjoy likely ran through the scenario in his or her head and wrote it off as something no sane person would ever do. Certainly not... well... there might be a reason ...
    8. 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 ...
    9. Spied: Q3 2.5 TFSI Caught Testing at Nurburgring



      Okay, outwardly this Audi Q3 might not look particularly special. Sure, it's badged and kitted as an S-line and those B7 RS 4-design wheels painted black in the centers is interesting... but were you just see a photo of this car you might not be overly interested. Take a closer look though and things change just a bit.

      First, our spy photographer sources shot this particular Audi Q3 at ...
    10. Spied: Audi A6 allroad Test Mule



      Also out testing this week is what appears to be the next-generation A6 allroad. The mule is so heavily camouflaged unlike the shot of the one testing in South America several weeks ago, one might have mistaken it for an A6... but my camouflage an A6 Avant when that's already been seen? The answer of course is that this is an allroad. We've compared these new ...
