    1. Find of the Day: Bonkers 570-hp B5 RS 4 Build on Ebay



      A wise man once told me to "Buy it Built". You'll earn a hell of a lot of respect and pride when you build your car from the ground up but you'll save a hell of a lot of cash if you buy it built. Often built cars are a total bargain, though we're sure whether this Bonkers B5 RS 4 build qualifies will be hotly debated. What we're pretty sure won't be ...
    2. 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. ...
    3. 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 ...
    4. Spied: Audi RS 4 Avant Testing Again at Nurburgring



      The new Audi RS 4 Avant has returned to the Nurburgring for testing and spy photographers who frequent the 'Green Hell' have nabbed plenty of shots. Unlike previous RS 4 mules in spy photos we've featured here, this latest RS 4 tester appears to boast the upcoming facelift bodywork planned for the A4 range such as A6 and now A5 inspired headlights, ...
    5. Pacific Northwest Audi Expo 2011 Event Report



      In case you didn't know, there's a large Audi-only enthusiast show in the Pacific Northwest that continues to grow. While we've never attended the Pacific Northwest Audi Expo, our previous experience with Audi-VW shows in the region (WaterWagens and WaterWerks to be specific) has proven to us that the quality of cars in the region is top tier. And looking through the photos, cars like this Audi ...
    6. Ultimate Twin Turbo B7 Audi RS 4 Build Update on Eurotuner



      If we had to imagine the ultimate B7 RS 4 build, we'd likely not be far from the project currently built by Advance Technologies, HT Motorsport and EFI Express for owner Bryan Whitmore. Effectively Whitmore wanted a twin turbo 4.2 FSI engine from the C5 RS 6 swapped into his RS 4. And while that might be enough to satisfy most, Bryan and his burgeoning team are going so, so much ...

On this site we strive our best to not only know as much as we can about future Audi product via our many friends and contacts within Audi, but also be able to spot false rumors or identify reliable sources in the press.

    8. "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 ...
    9. Another Set of B8 RS 4 Photos on quattroholic Offer More Angles of View



      As is common with a new test mule, there've been quite a few news outlets offering different sets of shots of the car. In the case of yesterday's B8 RS 4 Avant, this has certainly been the case. We reported on a set from MotorAuthority last night and ran our own set early this morning. Now quattroholic.com has published a new set we haven't yet seen offering even ...
    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 ...
