    1. RS 3 Mashup by Theophilus Chin



      Here's an interesting take on the next-generation (MQB) RS 3 as rendered by Theophilus Chin. This image, based on a 3-door A3, takes elements from the recent Audi RS Q3 Concept and less recent Audi A1 quattro to make for one very mean-looking render. We love what we see here.

      So How Accurate Is It?
      From our experience with Audi, this isn't very accurate... no matter how cool we think ...
    2. MQB Audi A3 Coupe Envisioned by Theophilus Chin



      Check out the latest imagineered Audi from Theophilus Chin. Earlier this week we featured his take on a B8 RS 4 with the latest facelift changes and now he's put together a production-looking 2-door take on the A3 sedan concept shown last spring in Geneva.

      So What Do We Think?
      First and foremost, Chin's re-working of the A3 sedan takes it in a more production-looking direction, which helps ...
    3. Rendered Speculation: B8 Audi RS 4 Sedan



      Render artist extraordinaire Theophilus Chin is at it again. PR shots of the facelifted Audi A4 are barely a week old and Chin has gone ahead and rendered an RS version already. High-res pics both front and rear are available after the jump below and are worth closer examination as Chin does what he's best known for, which is clean rendering and staying consistent with what is expected from the manufacturer. ...
    4. Rendered Speculation: C7 Audi allroad by Theophilus Chin



      With the Audi A6 Avant now fully revealed, imagining a C7 version of the Audi allroad becomes a bit more easier. For those who can't imagine it themselves, render artist extraordinaire Theophilus Chin has gone ahead and done it for you. Yes, we see some points that we doubt Audi will do, such as rotor wheels, standard A6 grille and aluminum S-spec mirrors... but this is the closest we've seen. Check out more ...

    6. Rendered Speculation: Production Audi A3 Sedan and Sportback from Theophilus Chin



      With the A3 Concept now fully revealed, render artists like Theophilus Chin have wasted no time in their work imagining just what a production A3 might look like. Our sources at Audi say the A3 family offerings of 3-door, Cabriolet and Sportback offerings will carry over to the new generation and of course a sedan will now be added. And while the concept car's large wheels and aggressive carbon fiber brightwork ...
    7. Theophilus Chin Takes a Stab at the Upcoming Audi A9



      We reported recently about an intel report we'd caught out of Automobile Magazine and their illustrious German contributor Georg Kacher. The piece was mainly about the architecture development movements within the Volkswagen Group including that of a new MSB front mid-engine large car chassis destined for future large automobiles from the Volkswagen Group's portfolio of models including Audi. Among the rumored ...
    8. What the Heck is an Audi T-Tron? Hint: It Doesn't Have T-tops



      What you see above is called the Audi T-tron? What's a T-tron? Answer: T-tron is a (photoshop) styling exercise by Theophilus Chin whereby he's applied the greenhouse of a production Audi TT to the body of Audi's quattro Concept.

      The result is interesting in that it shows the similarity of the quattro's design to other e-tron models. When we first spied the 3/4 above we thought the car might ...
    9. Next-Generation Audi RS 6 Render from Theophilus Chin



      Theophilus Chin is at it again with another C7 render, this time the next Audi RS 6. From the looks of it Chin added silver mirrors and honeycomb grille to the C7, and from there pulled styling cues such as the chin, box flares and tri-five alloys straight from the current C6-generation RS 6.

      Chin's got two images on his website (linked below), including a rear shot that appears to have a lower ...
    10. Rendered Speculation: New Audi A6 Avant by Theophilus Chin



      The name Theophilus Chin is a regular on this blog for reasons that quickly become obvious to anyone who knows of the photoshop artist. Chin maintains his own blog where he regularly publishes images he creates in order to visualize upcoming new models. Chin is often extremely conscious and considerate of brand design and takes few artistic liberties... qualities that make photoshop renderers that much more ...
