      With Audi Sport representing the only Audi or Audi-powered cars on the grid this year and also a Monday scrutineering slot, Sunday at scrutineering wasn't terribly momentous for Audi fans watching Le Mans week make its anticipated beginning. Rain showers plagued this first day of car inspection and driver licensing and, as usual, Audi safety cars made for interesting ...
    4. Spied: Could this Brawny R8 Test Mule Indicate New ultra GT Offering?



      We're not sure what to make of this R8 GT-based test mule spotted at the Nurburgring yesterday. Clearly the car is a factory mule and clearly it's been upgraded. Here's a quick rundown of the changes we spot.

      *Bigger racing-style front chin spoiler
      *Front and rear fender flaps indicating a likely wider track
      *Small Gurney flaps on rear to each side of spoiler ...

    6. 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 ...
    7. Possible Audi R8 GT Spyder Test Mule Spotted at Neckarsulm Factory



      Spy photographers captured this interesting looking R8 tester exiting Audi's Neckarsulm facility this morning. What otherwise might appear as a run-of-the-mill Sepang Blue R8 Spyder is likely an early production mule of the upcoming R8 GT Spyder.

Thanks Brian for the shots.

    10. New Audi R8 Print Ad Makes Clever Use of Matryoshka Doll Theme



      We doubt we have to define it, but a Matryoshka doll is that toy of Russian heritage where one doll opens up to reveal another inside... and another... and another. It's a simple idea, and also clever when applied to this new print ad for the R8 by one of Audi's ad agencies DDB Barcelona.
