    1. 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 ...
    2. Spied: Test Mule Proof of an Upcoming Audi RS 1? We Think So.



      Check out this latest test mule the mad staff at quattro GmbH have been testing at the Nurburgring. Photographed at the roundabout near the track, this blacked-out Audi A1 would seem to be a dead giveaway of the existence of an RS 1 program.

      Those following the A1 story know the intel thus far. quattro was bound for the A1 lineup from the beginning in the form of the Haldex system ...
    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. Find of the Day: Imola Yellow Audi R8 Spyder V10 in Sarasota, FL



      When we last toured the quattro GmbH's R8 production line in Neckarsulm, Germany, we were told that most R8s are built in neutral shades such as white, silver, black or grey. Apparently the person who ordered this R8 V10 Spyder didn't get the memo. Dipping into the Audi Exclusive custom paint option for the Audi R8, this particular open-air R8 gets Audi's loud Imola Yellow paint.

      We found ...
    5. quattro GmbH Builds Stomping Audi Q3 2.5 TFSI with TT RS / RS 3 Engine


      For those keeping track, the presence of quattro GmBh boss Stefan Reil at the Zurich launch of the Audi Q3 last week was a bit of a puzzler. The German executive was quoted in a story about the production determination of the quattro Concept for an article on Edmunds Inside Line, but also very interesting is why Audi's high performance boss would be at the launch of a 4-cylinder crossover.

    6. quattro Concept Production Decision Due by September Says quattro GmbH Boss



      Edmunds.com European contributor Alistair Weaver is on location in Zurich this week for the launch of the Audi Q3 and came up with some interesting news. According to Weaver, quattro GmbH boss Stefan Reil revealed that while the decision whether or not to produce the quattro Concept decision has yet to be made, the final outcome is expected to be known ...
    7. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Matte Ipanema Brown Audi R8 GT



      With production ramped up, the super limited (just 333 examples) R8 GT is finally being spotted in colors other than Suzuka Grey as were the initial pre-production units. We know matte paint is an option on the car, but were still surprised to see the matte take on Ipanema Brown. Ipanema is one of the favorite colors of Audi board members and of Ingolstadt's design chief Stefan Sielaff. We've seen it before plenty of times but never ...
    8. Audi Forum Neckarsulm Photo Gallery Added + Ipanema Brown Audi A7 by Audi Exclusive



      Later this week Audi AG will be hosting its annual General Meeting at the Audi Forum Neckarsulm and in photographic support of this announcement their PR department has released a set of photos depicting all elements of the forum - the Audi Exclusive showroom, the customer delivery center, the Audi Collection shop, the Nuvolari Restaraunt and more.

    9. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Suzuka Grey Audi Q3 S-line on Audi Stand in Hamburg



      quattro GmbH boss Stephan Reil once told us that Suzuka Grey was not a color he'd release for standard cars. That means it's reserved only for R8s and RS car pallets unless. Fortunately, for those willing to pay the premium, Audi's uber-cool almost-white metallic is available on any model thanks to Audi Exclusive ordering. Case in point is this Q3 S-line show car on display in Hamburg last week. The German Audi blog ...
    10. Audi RS 4 Avant Mule Appears for First Time



      We've found what we believe to be the first set of spy photos of the upcoming RS 4 Avant posted over at MotorAuthority. Make sure to see plenty more angles of the car after the jump. MA notes the car is essentially A4 bodied with a unique RS-like chin spoiler, RS 5 wheels and brakes and suggests the car will be a high-hp version of the 3.0T FSI supercharged engine that should hit market ...
