    1. "S4 Avant" Test Mule May Have Been RS 4 Says Our Forum and They're Probably Right



      Remember that test mule we ran just yesterday, the one we thought might be an S4 Avant? We cross-posted that story to our B8 S4 forum and may have been quickly schooled by a few of our readers. And their theories were solid, solid enough for us to take a second look and likely agree with them.

      The spy photographers ...
    2. On Location: Glacier White 2012 Audi A4 + Other Color News from Audi



      We recently visited Audi of America headquarters, coaxed into a visit by news that there was a German spec Audi A4 that had been built as a 2012 package mockup. And while the spec (Premium Plus, S-line bodywork and those 5-spoke wheels) may still be subject to change the most significant difference we saw on the car was its Glacier White Paint that was described ...
    3. Audi Q3 Rollout Begins with German Website Section and with New Detail Exposed by QARSI.de



      Just an FYI for those watching intently as the Audi Q3 cruises towards its Shanghai premier next week. Seems Audi Germany has launched a Q3 section to their Audi.de website where you can sign up for news and see a few teasers.

      Up until now the shots seen were unobstructed but very,very tight on the car... with good quality views so long as you only wanted to see the headlight or the taillight ...
    4. Mold Gone Wild: Audi allroad Edition



      Here's something you don't see every day... at least we hope you don't. The photo you see above (and more like it after the jumps below) is of a 2002 Audi allroad brought to a New Jersey detailer after the car's owner had experienced a carpet-soaking firewall leak and then parked the poor car for four months. According to Jalopnik, where we found the story, the detailser said the cleanup required special ...
    5. Audi Driver: Jason Statham Drives an Audi A8... As If You Didn't Know.



      Hey, you know that actor Jason Statham? Turns out he drives an Audi A8. I know... surprising, right?

      It's fair to say that Jason Statham has had his fair share of association with Audi. There were the two guilty pleasure Transporter movies (2 and 3 to be specific, because he drives a Bimmer in 1). There was the Audi chase commercial where Statham rocked a then-new ...
    6. Video: Driver Loses Control, Then Saves B5 Audi A4 on Portuguese Highway



      It pays to know what you're doing behind the wheel. And though we all like to think we do, you never really know until you're put to the test. Case in point is the Portuguese driver of an Audi A4 in the video below. On a fast highway sweeper and just after passing a car, the driver rather masterfully counter ...
    7. Texas Legislature Moving Toward 85 MPH Speed Limit in Lone Star State



      Texasbahn? LoneStarbahn? Doesn't really seem to have the same ring as Montanabahn did... and though Texas isn't moving toward no speed limit as Montana had (sort of) years ago, you have to hand it to the Texas legislature's move to bump the state's highest speed limit to 85.

      The theory goes that there's no such thing as a short drive in Texas, where cities aren't exactly as closely positioned as they are in the more highly ...

    9. Next-Gen Audi A3 Design Sketches via AutoCar from Audi Design Team



      AutoCar dropped a second mix of official Audi design images on their website today. While the first set showed an upcoming R8 GT Spyder, this set shows an idea of what production versions of the Audi A3 will look like when the next-generation car debuts later this year.

      Autocar sources suggest that when the A3 goes on sale with 3-door, 5-door Sportback, Cabriolet and ...
    10. Audi Design Team Releases R8 GT Drawings Via AutoCar Magazine



      It was likely a foregone conclusion but it would appear that Audi is readying an R8 GT Spyder for the market according to Brit car magazine AutoCar and their proof are a collection of four design drawings (two interior, two exterior, all four available after the jump below).

      Autocar says a prototype of the R8 GT Spyder will be on display at Le Mans in June and then ...
