    1. 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 ...
    2. Audi Seriously Considering Production Version of quattro Concept Says AutoCar



      According to British buff book AutoCar, Audi is seriously considering a production version of its Paris show stopper the quattro Concept. AC's source is none other than quattro GmbH boss Stefan Reil who suggested Audi has had a team of dedicated engineers in Ingolstadt 'advancing plans that it be approved'. Should that happen, the car will be built in limited numbers ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. AutoBild's Most Childish Comparison: Auto Union Silver Arrow vs. Rat Rod



      It's a PR nuisance: major magazine rings up the communications office looking to compare the latest, greatest offering with something else. Unless you win and win against something brag-worthy it's not really worth it. Given that, we wonder how Audi PR bosses viewed the pitch from Autobild to let a couple of six year olds pit their 1:2 scale motorized Auto Union Silburpfeil against a homemade rat rod of like scale.

    5. More Spy Photos of Production Audi RS 3 Reveal Odd New Mechanical Roof Spoiler?



      We've just finished making our post about the RS 3 and now found another set of photos on the same CarSpyShots.com website. This groups of shots show an impressively large rear spoiler seemingly angled the wrong way to create drag. CarSpyShots has two theories that the piece is either one very different mechanical spoiler design or a piece that is about to fall off.

      Frankly, it ...
    6. Near-Production Audi RS 3 Mule Testing at Nurburgring Undisguised



      The Audi A3 chassis may be entering its final stages of production ahead of a switch to MQB but that's not stopping Audi from going full on with an RS 3 version of the car. We've seen modified S3-bodied mules believed to be RS 3 test cars running at the ring before but the latest shots like the one above from CarSpyPhotos.com show a car a lot closer to production trim.

      The most noticeable ...
    7. Impressive Audi RS 4 Sedan (B8) Renders from CarSpyShots



      We've found (via http://www.audiblog.nl) two new renders of the next-generation B8 RS 4 in sedan form. The shots were originally posted in a thread over at CarSpyShots (http://www.carspyshots.net) and are quite convincing but obviously renders.

      Our own intel tells us RS 4 will be Avant only. The business model for the last B7 RS 4 sedan included the USA as part of the business case and the existing ...
